CR7 Takes Old Trafford With A Bang As Bruno Fernández & Jesse Lingard Prove Haters Wrong

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer finally delivered what every Manchester United fans were very eager for since the summer transfer window was officially shut.

Cristiano Ronaldo's second debut for Manchester United which was much anticipated went down this evening as several fans streamed up to Old Trafford.

Solskjaer ensured that Cristiano Ronaldo was in the match day squad while Jadon Sancho was also handed his full debut at Old Trafford.

The game was tight as Newcastle United players played a more defensive game which had Manchester United break their defense.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo delivered for Manchester United before half time as he attacked a loose ball after Mason Greenwood struck the ball to goal but the Newcastle United goalkeeper failed to catch it.

In the second half, Newcastle United were about to spoil the party as they equalised, but Cristiano Ronaldo found the net again and hit his trademark 'siuu' celebrations at the Stretford end of the Old Trafford.

Bruno Fernández later on proved his doubters wrong as he hit a brilliant ball from way out of the penalty area to make the score line three one in favour of Manchester United.

Jadon Sancho gave way for Jesse Lingard who played his first match at Old Trafford since last year.

The 28 years old who recently rejected a new contract extension offer from the club also proved his doubters and haters wrong as he got to the scoresheet too.

With an ice cold strike, Jesse Lingard beat the Newcastle United goalkeeper to score Manchester United's fourth and winning goal of the match.

Other than the three, Paul Pogba also made his mark in the game by providing an assist which was the fifth in four games this season.

This match is the start of the brilliant run of games for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as several Manchester United fans expect more this season.
