Ronaldo beats Solskjær in Man United goal table

Hits continue to arrive for Ole Gunnar Solskjær after the Norwegian football icon parted ways with Manchester United earlier this season, with the summer signing of Cristiano Ronaldo now officially overtaking him on everyone’s goal list. the times in the Premier League of the Red Devils.

Ronaldo scored his 92nd goal for United in English football’s top flight in the first half against relegation-threatened Burnley at Old Trafford, putting Ralf Rangnick’s side 3-0 before Aaron Lennon brings back seven minutes from the break.

Portugal’s top goalscorer scored from six yards after Scott McTominay hit the post from outside the area, scoring his eighth of the 2021-22 league campaign, but still far from the top ten goals for United with club legend Paul Scholes’ 107 strikes probably out of reach until the next term.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s legacy at United, however, is hardly in danger as he remains the only Red Devil to have won both the European Golden Boot and World Footballer of the Year in club colors, achieving both in a brilliant 2008 campaign in which he also won the first of five Ballons d’Or.

Are the Red Devils finally purring under Ralf Rangnick?

Three out of four wins for Manchester United since the arrival of German tactician Ralf Rangnick paints a picture of a Red Devils outfit hitting the ground under their new – if only temporary – boss at Old Trafford. But the three goals against Burnley (in a game still ongoing at the time of writing) are the first time the club has scored more than one goal since Rangnick took over.

Two narrow 1-0 victories over Crystal Palace and Norwich scored the points unconvincingly, and their recent 1-1 draw with Newcastle United was a sheer disappointment. However, the immediate scintillating football under Rangnick was never going to be offered as the German manager sets out to bring about change at the club on and off the pitch, and not just through tactical means.

Yet with the level of talent and quality offered in United’s first team, more can and should be expected from the Red Devils loyalists after Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho were added to an already talented line of attackers this summer; at least on paper.

Whether or not this is the start of better performances in the final third remains to be seen, but certainly Manchester United should be much more capable of registering more believable goal returns as the season progresses.
