Cristiano Ronaldo's second debut in EPL (English Premier League), has been of great significance to Manchester United. Ronaldo, who has since then been Ole Gunnar Soskjaer's top striker, has secured Manchester United's late two consecutive EPL wins.

Cristiano, who pulled a spectacular debut against Newcastle United at Old Trafford, scored two goals to mark Man Utd's first big win in the 2021 EPL season. The said match ended (4-1), in favour of Man Utd.(Benrahma's goal against Man Utd, Photo Courtesy)

To stamp more authority on Man Utd's recent great performance in EPL, Ronaldo helped the former and also his team, secure 3 points while playing against West Ham United at London Stadium, yesterday. The match ended (2-1), in favour of the Red Devils.

Man Utd midfielder cum striker Jesse Lingard, who replaced Paul Pogba 27 minutes to the end of the tight clash, hit the net in the 89th minute to put the Reds, one goal ahead of West Ham United.

Bearing in mind that Lingard played for West Ham United from early January 2021 to late June 2021, but on loan, his goal was largely celebrated. But a few seconds later, West Ham United landed a big chance to secure a (2-2) draw against the Reds.(Jesse Lingard after scoring, Photo Courtesy)

The Irons (West Ham United) were awarded a spot-kick after Luke Shaw's handball. But Mark Noble, who was substituted on to take the penalty, threw the ultimate chance away as Man Utd goalkeeper David De Gea, blocked his penalty shot effortlessly. 

David De Gea emerged the Man Utd's man of the match, after sealing the thin 2-1 win. Below, see both photos of Mark Nobel taking the penalty, and De Gea saving it. You can also see the current EPL standings, below. Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United, take the lead respectively, with 13 points each.
