Cristiano Ronaldo kept his hot streak alive as he scored in Manchester United’s Premier League match against West Ham United. However, it was his theatrics at the beginning of the game that turned a lot of heads before a thrilling encounter.

While he was entering the pitch in the first half, Ronaldo hilariously dodged the famous bubbles of the West Ham United stadium. He has played in the stadium multiple times before, but the Portuguese forward had no time for the bubbles this time.

While he did dodge the bubbles successfully, United was in trouble early on as David Moyes’ side drew first blood. Said Benrahma scored the opener in the 30th minute from outside the penalty area. It was a great goal, but the Hammers’ lead only lasted five minutes.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored in his third United match in a row.

Ronaldo found the back of the net in the 35th minute. He tapped the ball in after Lukas Fabianski saved his initial headed shot. However, Fabianski had a fantastic game and had a case for being the man of the match. He saved several shots from Ronaldo and kept West Ham in the game.

Ronaldo now has four goals in three appearances for Manchester United. He scored a brace in his first match for the club and helped United win the match 4-1. The Portuguese also scored the only goal in United’s UEFA Champions League loss against BSC Young Boys.

Jesse Lingard and David de Gea combine to get Manchester United across the line.

Jesse Lingard was the hero this time around as his brilliant strike gave United the lead. After the Reds were denied a close penalty call, and West Ham got one in their favor, things weren’t over yet. Luke Shaw’s handball gave the Hammers an opportunity to snatch a late draw.
