Man Utd vs Newcastle Live Score: Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates after scoring in his second debut.© AFP
With Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a brace in his second Premier League debut, Manchester United are leading 2-1 against Newcastle United at Old Trafford on Saturday. The Portugal captain scored his first goal at the cusp of half-time, scoring via a deflection. Javier Manquillo bought Newcastle back into the game with a driving effort in the early stages of second-half. But Ronaldo had other plans, scoring his second goal within a few minutes after a through ball from Luke Shaw. Ronaldo, who left United to join Real Madrid in 2009, returned to the club where he made his name as a global star last month from Juventus. Since joining United Ronaldo broke the all-time international goalscoring record with his 110th goal for Portugal in a World Cup qualifier win against the Republic of Ireland. Having been suspended for the subsequent game against Azerbaijan for removing his shirt in celebration, he jetted to England and has been training with his new team-mates for the past few days. Ronaldo is joined by United’s other summer signings Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho in a star-studded team also including Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes.
