​The Portuguese superstar opened the scoring in outrageous fashion, bagging a long-range screamer in the 12th minute.

Harry Kane levelled from the spot, with Ronaldo restoring Man United's lead after Jadon Sancho brilliantly picked him out. 

In the 72nd minute, Harry Maguire scored an own-goal to make it 2-2 - with Man United's No.7 popping up with a late winner. 

He rose the highest and planted a header into the back of the net to complete his first Man United hat-trick since returning to Old Trafford last summer. 


Ronaldo's heroics also saw him record another legendary achievement. He's now the top goal-scorer in the history of professional football, with 807 goals.

The victory moves Man United into fourth spot with 50 points on the board, two points ahead of Arsenal who face Leicester City on Sunday.

As for Spurs, they remain in seventh place, but have two games in hand over Ralf Rangnick's team.
