There was just one Man United star named in the BBC Team of the week after our 3-2 victory vs Spurs this weekend. No prizes for guessing who…

Manchester United pulled off an insane victory against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday evening, despite being pegged back twice by Antonio Conte’s men.

The game itself was an extremely entertaining one. Both teams tried to attack and get forward wherever possible, making for a great spectacle.

In the end, though, only one man would stand tall; Cristiano Ronaldo.

The superhuman Portuguese would score a stunning hat-trick on a day where he simply wouldn’t allow United to drop points. It’s these big moments where the cream always rises to the top – and he did exactly that at Old Trafford.

It’s no secret then that Ronaldo was always going to feature in the latest BBC Team of the Week. To my surprise, he was the only United star to do so…

Check out the BBC Team of the Week in full here:

A strong case can be made for both Fred and Jadon Sancho. The pair played brilliantly, enabling Ronaldo to do what he does best; stick the ball in the back of the net.

Back to the GOAT for now, though, who has 807 professional goals next to his name. That’s now the most in the history of our beautiful game. Ronaldo’s legacy will live on forever and it’s games like this, aged 37, that just cement his place in history.

The big question is, just how many times can he do this from now until the end of the season? If we’re serious about making it into next campaign’s Champions League, then we’re going to need Ronnie to bail us out on a number of occasions yet…

Can Cristiano Ronaldo now keep up this form going into our game against Atletico Madrid? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
