Cristiano Ronaldo has finally scored his 700th club career goal at Manchester United, MySportDab reports.
The beleaguered Manchester United forward was brought from the bench into the game after Martial limped off the pitch.
Nigeria international Alex Iwobi foundered trying to dribble past Casemiro, who won the tackle and sent a quick pass to Ronaldo.
The five times Ballon door winner picked his pace down the right flank and fired a low shot to give Manchester United the lead before the end of the first half.
The goal came in his seventh touch in the match as he came on to make the difference for the Red Devils.
Ronaldo’s strike is coming on the backdrop of his poor and frustrating start this season with Manchester United.
Last season, the Portuguese star scored 24 goals for Manchester United in all competitions, but he has struggled this season.
Manchester United went into the break with a 2-1 lead courtesy of the goal as they survived a 5th-minute scare by Alex Iwobi, who had put the home side in front.
Antony found an equalizer for the Red Devils a few minutes later after firing a low shot past Pickford to tie the game on a 1-1.
Cristiano Ronaldo successfully recorded his first goal this season after what appeared to be his worst start to a football season.
It was a brilliant strike for the highly rated, who has proved critics wrong with the goal.
