Cristiano Ronaldo has praised Manchester United's performance in their 3-0 victory over Tottenham. The Portuguese superstar starred for the Red Devils as they demolished Spurs to go into 5th in the Premier League.
Speaking after the game, Cristiano Ronaldo was asked about the importance of the win against Tottenham. Especially after the 5-0 demolition at the hands of Liverpool last weekend. He said:
"We knew before the game that we had a tough week. We had results that we didn't expect. We were a little bit under pressure, a little sad. But we knew that we would give a good answer today. We played good. We started the game very well."
The Portuguese superstar was then asked about his excellent performance on the night, but was quick to credit the team's overall performance. He said:
"Of course my job is to help the team with my experience, with goals, with assists. I did it today and I feel so pleased about that. But in terms of the team, it was an unbelievable performance in my opinion."
Cristiano Ronaldo put in a Man of the Match performance for Manchester United, scoring and assisting on the night. The forward scored the game's opening goal with an incredible volley in the first half. He then set up Cavani to score United's second goal of the game.
Marcus Rashford made sure of the three points with a composed finish in the 86th minute to wrap up what was a must-win game for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
