Ronaldo scores on Man Utd return against Newcastle

Ronaldo
was
thrust
straight
into
the
United
XI
at
Old
Trafford
after
sealing
his
move
from
Juventus
shortly
before
the
international
break.

Twelve
years
and
118
days
on
from
his
previous
Premier
League
appearance,
it
marked
the
longest
gap
between
outings
in
the
competition’s
history.

And
Ronaldo
was
immediately
involved
in
the
final
third,
attempting
a
game-high
five
shots
in
the
first
half.

The
fifth
of
those
found
the
net
to
put
United
1-0
up,
profiting
on
Freddie
Woodman’s
fumble
from
a
deflected
Mason
Greenwood
strike.

Only
Matt
Jackson
(13
years
and
187
days
between
May
1993
and
November
2006)
has
gone
longer
between
Premier
League
goals,
with
Ronaldo’s
previous
effort
coming
12
years
and
124
days
earlier
against
Manchester
City
in
May
2009.

At
36,
Ronaldo
became
United’s
oldest
Premier
League
goalscorer
since
a
39-year-old
Ryan
Giggs’ final
goal
in
the
competition
in
February
2013.
Only
Giggs
and
Paul
Scholes
have
netted
for
United
in
the
competition
at
an
older
age
than
Ronaldo.
