Scorer and decisive passer this Saturday on the lawn of Tottenham (0-3), Cristiano Ronaldo has put Manchester United back on track.

As is often the case this season, the light has come from the steadfast Ronaldo. Perfectly served by his compatriot Bruno Fernandes, CR7 opened the scoring before the break with a superb volley placed out of reach of Lloris (0-1, 39th). The Portuguese superstar even thought of getting a double after returning from the locker room, but his goal was logically refused for an offside position (48th).
Cavani takes the break
The five-time Ballon d’Or then turned into a passer by throwing in the back of the London defense Cavani, who only had to conclude the action (0-2, 64th). Serious, efficient, but above all consistent on a collective level, the Mancunians even drove the point home at the end of the match through Marcus Rashford (0-3, 86th).
A very important success for the Red Devils and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who offers himself a new reprieve after seeing his position be greatly weakened this week. For their part, Spurs are sinking a little deeper into the crisis, with a worrying record of 5 defeats in 10 Premier League matches this season. Nuno Espirito Santo could well pay a heavy price for it in the coming days …
