Patrice Evra Snatched Jamie Carragher's Soul After Ronaldo's Masterclass vs Arsenal, He Didn't Hold Back

Patrice Evra sent for Jamie Carragher following Manchester United's 3-2 win over Arsenal due to his Cristiano Ronaldo comments.

Ronaldo scored twice on Thursday evening to give United their first win over the Gunners in nearly three years.

The 36-year-old started Sunday's draw with Chelsea on the bench and it saw Carragher claim the decision to not start Ronaldo was understandable.

Evra is a close friend of Ronaldo and he decided to have his say live on Amazon Prime Video Sport after seeing Ronaldo net a brace.

He begun: "There's a lot of talk about this player, and I already don't understand it.

"Some players like Jamie Carragher, he had I think 775 games, Cristiano today scored 801 goals, and those kind of people talk about Cristiano.

"Sometimes I think people just have to stay in their lane, and I just don't understand that hate. Some people just wake up and want to talk about Cristiano."

Carragher also had minor beef with Rio Ferdinand earlier this week, as the former England teammates went back and forth on punditry vs trophies.

Arsenal did take the lead at Old Trafford through Emile Smith Rowe with one of the most bizarre goals you'll ever see.

United midfielder Fred stood on David de Gea's foot, who collapsed to the ground in agony.

Play didn't stop and with de Gea on the deck, Smith Rowe volleyed home into an empty net.

Referee Martin Atkinson blew his whistle after the ball hit the back of net, with the incident going to a VAR review.

The goal stood as there was no clear foul from an Arsenal player and it left United's players furious.

However, they'd go on to level just before half-time thanks to a smart finish from Bruno Fernandes.

Ronaldo would put the hosts ahead seven minutes into the second half, smashing home a Marcus Rashford cross.

That lead lasted a minute before Martin Odegaard scooped home an equaliser for Mikel Arteta's men.

Odegaard turned from hero to villain 20 minutes from time after slicing down Fred with a challenge inside the penalty are.

Ronaldo smashed home the spot-kick to ensure victory for Michael Carrick in his final game as caretaker manager.

It was announced post-match Carrick would also be leaving his role as first-team coach, ending a 15 year association with the club.
