Cristiano Played Well But This Was Man United's Best Player Last Night

It is understandable for one to say that Cristiano Ronaldo's career looks like a well scripted story line because the man is just inevitable.

Call him anytime and he always steps up when most needed and last night was another perfect example of that.

Manchester United snatched a win from the jaws of embarrassment and it was that man Ronaldo who stepped up in the 95th minute to smash the ball past Rulli sending Old Trafford into a pandemonium.

It has been a quite a while to see such a celebrated goal inside this stadium and especially in the Champions League.

However with Ronaldo around, anything can happen and today it was a night of individual brilliances that save Ole from more scrutiny.

However it will be unfair to give Ronaldo man of the match because there was another top performance from David De Gea in goal who was back to his best.

If not for the Spaniard, United would have lost this game early as De Gea produced world class saves denying Danjuma and Paco Alcacer from close range.

Doubted a few seasons ago after unexpected dip in form, De Gea has this season rose up to his feet and prove to the world why he still remains among the best keepers in the world.

Yes Ronaldo scored the winner and deserves many plaudits but it was De Gea who kept United in the game to even look for that late winner at Old Trafford.
