Cristiano Ronaldo made an instant impact on his return to Old Trafford, scoring two goals to help Manchester United beat Newcastle United 4-1.
Ronaldo signed for Manchester United in August from Italian giants Juventus and after two weeks of anticipation, the 36-year-old stepped out at his old stomping ground in a red shirt for the first time since the Champions League final against Barcelona in 2009.
In a cagey first half, Ronaldo opened the scoring just before half-time, tapping home from close range after Newcastle goalkeeper Freddie Woodman spilt a Mason Greenwood strike.
Newcastle pulled a goal back early in the second half but Ronaldo scored his second after a surging run from England full-back Luke Shaw.
Goals from Bruno Fernandes and substitute Jesse Lingard sealed the win, but it was all about Ronaldo – who was cheered on by a home crowd which included his former manager Sir Alex Ferguson, outgoing vice-chairman Ed Woodward, co-chairman Avram Glazer and former teammate Ryan Giggs.
From the moment Ronaldo stepped off the team coach, his every move and touch was cheered with Ronaldo 7 shirts worn by many.
