But while they still settle football matches based on which team scores more goals, rather than on statistics, there must be a starting spot for one of the scoring machines. Greatest table of all time.

After receiving his work permit on the morning of the game, experienced German Rangnick was in the director’s box to deliver his new allegations once before he heads to the training ground tomorrow. .

And he will be relieved to see Ronaldo tackle an entertainingly turbulent match with a second-half brace lifting United to seventh across the board, just three points off Champions League final place – that should be. the minimum goal of the temporary.

After being dumped by his caretaker Michael Carrick during a visit to Chelsea on Sunday, Ronaldo was a bit worried that his great rival Lionel Messi would be crowned Player of the Year for a seventh time on Saturday evening. after.

And from the start, there have been several failed attempts from Ronaldo to fill the standout reels with party tricks, just like the old days.

Ronaldo is the only player on the pitch who can recall a match when United vs Arsenal was still the defining match of English football – about a decade and a half ago.

If he is left out of the starting line-up again, it is certainly a sign that a new Rangnick regime is taking hold – however United insist the German was not involved in the preparations for the match. this match.

It was the first game at Old Trafford since Solskjaer was sacked and they sang the Norwegian’s name in a long and difficult way at the Stretford End, as Rangnick began to take the director’s seat.

After an early period under pressure from Arsenal, Ronaldo scored his first goal and fired a weak long shot to the mockery of the Gunners supporters – who had spent most of the evening sing about the championship 20 years ago.

Then the situation is messy – and an incident that reminds you of one of the unlikely situations in the cartoon ‘You Are The Ref’.

As United defended a corner, Fred hit De Gea’s heel in the back, the keeper fell heavily on the line and the keeper still faced the wrong way when Harry Maguire cleared the ball and Mo Elneny nodded for Smith. – Rowe goes home.

Atkinson blew his whistle – seemingly in complete panic – shortly after the ball crossed the line.

But during a lengthy delay when De Gea got up, VAR Andre Marriner ruled – quite rightly – that there had been no foul and the goal had been awarded.

Arsenal celebrated wildly, to the boos around Old Trafford, and it was clear there was no chance of them sporting past United to equalize.

Shortly after, Ronaldo attempted a reverse bike kick to catch up to Ben White’s shoulder, and White then appeared to push past Alex Telles for a well-deserved penalty. Atkinson could have considered everything but admirably, he didn’t.

Gabriel Martinelli pulled in a tight shot as a simple cross for Smith-Rowe would have secured Arsenal’s second goal.

And then United leveled the gap two minutes before the break. White ceded possession to Sancho, who rushed forward and brought in Fred, whose artistic reverse put Fernandes into the far corner – although goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale could have saved.

After De Gea made a fine save from a corner that could have saved Gabriel’s save, Ronaldo made a stunning turn, netting Thomas Partey but the shot was blocked by Ramsdale’s body. .

He didn’t have to wait long to get on the scoresheet, though, as Rashford dropped down the right flank and stretched for Ronaldo to shoot home from six yards.

Arsenal’s reaction was almost immediate, a cross from Partey freeing Martinelli, who cut for Odegaard to equalize with a sweet first shot into the far corner.

A sweeping pass from White gave Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang clear stride but after a poor first touch his shot was saved by the excellent De Gea.

Ronaldo’s winner needed VAR Marriner’s assistance, Odegaard wrapping his legs around Fred in a late shot that Atkinson couldn’t spot.

The man in the number 7 shirt – 9th in the Ballon D’Or standings – won’t get any great personal compliments for his shot straight into the middle.

But he took three points for his team – and was given a standing ovation when he was withdrawn shortly after a brilliant 80-yard dash in the 88th minute.

See, Ralfie, he can run, man. And he can definitely score.
