Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo had a dream comeback to Manchester United, twelve years later, by converting a double in the defeat of Newcastle 4 to 1, in the continuity of the fourth date of the English Premier League. The Portuguese allowed to unblock a complex meeting for the "Red Devils", scoring at 47 minutes of the first half and at 17 of the complement, at the "Old Trafford" stadium.

With the double this Saturday, Ronaldo reached 120 goals for the English club in 293 games, and was one of Andy Cole - retired - to take eighth place in the club's historical scorers table. However, he is still far from the mark of Wayne Rooney, the highest scorer in the history of the institution.

The other goals of those directed by the Norwegian Ole Gunnar Solskjaer were the work of the other Portuguese Bruno Fernándes and Jesse Lingard. Spanish defender Javier Manquillo had scored the partial tie for Newcastle. Manchester United, meanwhile, continues as the leader with 10 points along with Chelsea, who beat Aston Villa 3-0.
