    Cristiano Ronaldo has already equalled the Premier League goal tally of both Alexis Sanchez and Angel Di Maria at Manchester United after just TWO games.

    The 36-year-old netted a brace on his second debut for the club as the Red Devils beat Newcastle 4-1 at Old Trafford.

    And he then added another at the London Stadium on Sunday during Man Utd's 2-1 victory over West Ham.

    Ronaldo's instant success in front of goal is more than can be said for two of the club's biggest flops in the No7 shirt.

    Sanchez joined Man Utd from Arsenal in January 2018 but would spend just 18 months there before being farmed out on loan to Inter Milan.

    The Chilean forward scored just three times in 32 Premier League appearances as he failed to ever establish himself as a first team regular at the Theatre of Dreams.

    And the same could be said for fellow South American Di Maria.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is concerned referees will shy away from giving Cristiano Ronaldo penalties following Manchester United's win over West Ham.

    The five-time Ballon d'Or winner was twice denied a spot-kick by referee Martin Atkinson in the Red Devils' last-gasp victory at the London Stadium last Sunday.

    Norwegian Solskjaer is hoping that won't be a reoccurring theme this season, declaring: "We had two stonewall penalties. Clear as day.

    “I'm just hoping it's not one of them where Cristiano Ronaldo never wins a penalty."

    United ran out 2-1 winners thanks to a stoppage-time penalty save from David de Gea, who had failed to save the previous 21 spot-kicks he'd faced.

    Solskjaer was full of praise for the Spaniard, telling MUTV: "You know he's a top keeper, everyone loves having him behind them.

    "He's come back focused, really determined, with a desire to show who he is. It's his 11th season and we've never stopped believing in him, and it's important that he also knows that.

    "He came in pre-season and said: 'I know I'm supposed to be rested but I want to come back early' and that just shows his determination."

    Former Ipswich Town and Newcastle United midfielder Darren Ambrose has tipped Cristiano Ronaldo to end the season as the Premier League's top goalscorer.

    During an appearance on talkSPORT, he said: "If you’re asking me now, I think he’ll finish as the Premier League’s top goalscorer, I honestly do.

    “I think you’ve got Lukaku of course will score a lot, Harry Kane will start scoring absolutely, Salah another one who’s going to be right up there.

    “But he [Ronaldo] just seems to score all the time.”

    Axel Tuanzebe has no long-term future at Manchester United, according to former Aston Villa hitman Kevin Phillips.

    The defender is currently on loan at Villa Park from the Red Devils, but SunSport understands he wants to make the move permanent.

    And Phillips believes the current pecking order at Old Trafford doesn't make for good viewing for the 23-year-old.

    He told Football Insider: “He hasn’t got a future at Man United as far as I can tell, not now that they have signed Raphael Varane.

    “Villa are a great club so I’m not surprised he’s enjoying his time there. Get the deal done. He has settled in really well which was to be expected given that he has already been at the club.

    “It kind of smells of an easy deal to be done but sometimes it can be more difficult than you’d hope. What kind of fee would Man United want? That’s the big question.

    “From the outside looking in it is a deal that I can see getting done though.”

    Phil Jones has hit back at Rio Ferdinand’s criticism of his place in the Red Devils’ squad.

    He said: “Listen, the respect I’ve got is enormous.

    “I’ve shared a dressing room with Rio – great professional. Loved playing with him. Great lad, good humour. Learned so much off him.

    “But what he said was poor. Really poor. I’m not into disputes, not into arguments, and if he didn’t know, he didn’t know.”

    United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is adamant Jadon Sancho will come good for the Red Devils, despite his slow start to life at Old Trafford.

    The Norwegian said of the England international: "He’s 21, he’s learning the game.

    "He’s learning how we train, he’s learning how we play, he’s learning the Premier League. But he’s come in hungry to learn.

    “We knew his talent, and we signed him with the thought that we are going to have a top forward here for the next 10 or 12 years.

    “Jadon’s finding his feet. It’s unfortunate that he fell ill just when he was going to come in, so he was out, and he lost a bit of pre-season. But he is working hard and he will be good.”

    Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes his troops fully deserved the three points in their 2-1 win over West Ham on Sunday.

    He said: "I think we created some big chances, we had pressure on them, should have had a few penalties.

    "We had a great response when they scored, good attitude, very good away performance in a difficult cauldron; the stadium is hard here!"

    David de Gea has revealed he expected Declan Rice to take West Ham's crucial penalty against Manchester United – not Mark Noble.

    He told Sky Sports: "I saw [Declan] Rice with the ball, so I was expecting him to take the penalty," he said.

    "Then I saw Noble with the ball. It was the last minute of the game [and] I made the save.

    "[All I was thinking was] Just save, save the ball, save the penalty, help the team to win. It's always difficult to play here against West Ham so [we are] really, really happy."

    Former Premier League star Nigel Jemson has claimed Red Devils hitman Marcus Rashford doesn't know what his best position is.

    He told This Is Futbol:  "I don’t know what his best position is.

    “Surely to god, he should be a number nine by now. He’s got years of experience on him but is he a left winger cutting in?

    "I don’t know. I don’t think he knows what his best position is.”

    David de Gea has further reflected on Manchester United's dramatic victory over West Ham on Sunday afternoon.

    He told MUTV: "It was a bit crazy at the end, a great goal of Jesse, a stupid penalty, lucky penalty for them at the end of the game.

    "They make the change [Noble coming on as a sub] so it was a little bit strange.

    "At the end, I make the save, take the three points, a massive three points for us, so I'm very, very happy."

    Manchester United legend Roy Keane has urged Red Devils fans to lay off Jadon Sancho following his slow start to life at Old Trafford.

    The former United skipper said: "He'll be fine.

    Adding: "He's been at the club what, two months. There's been a lot of changes, new players coming to the club – give the kid a break.

    "He's still learning his trade, he's still a young player, big expectations.

    "He's come to a new club where he's certainly not going to be star man, he'll be down the pecking order and he's got to adapt to all that. Give him a chance."

    Ole Gunnar Solskajer has laughed off the ongoing speculation surrounding his future, insisting it's part and parcel of being Manchester United manager.

    Speaking after the Red Devils' 2-1 victory over West Ham on Sunday, he said: "Five games into the season, I was probably down and out and lost my job yesterday.

    "That's with the way it is at Man Utd.

    "We deserved three points. it's a hard place to come, hopefully, these points can make a difference."

    Manchester United legend Cristiano Ronaldo has received praise from former Red Devil Ben Thornley following his goalscoring exploits against West Ham.

    He told MUTV: “I’ve said it before, he is going to score lots and lots of those goals that are just tap-ins.

    “But what was brilliant about it was Lukasz Fabianski made a decent save, but he was the first one to react and he was in straight away.

    “We were hoping that, in the second half, we would have run away with it really because we were much the better team and had Ronaldo scored at the start of the second half, that would have been different.”

    Former Manchester United star Lou Macari believes Cristiano Ronaldo should've been awareded a penalty after being tripped by West Ham defender Kurt Zouma.

    He told MUTV: “I think because he was involved in another moment, not long before that moment, I think maybe the referee had made up his mind that ‘no you’re not getting a penalty kick’.

    “Certainly when you see the replay it looks a penalty, the second one that is.”

    “They’ve got so many goals in them.”

    He added: “We’ve seen it in the last few games, the guy [Ronaldo] can score goals for fun. It’s great to have someone in your team that gives you that guarantee.”

    Sky Sports pundits Roy Keane, Graeme Souness were baffled by David Moyes' decision to bring on Mark Noble to take West Ham's crucial stoppage-time penalty against Manchester United.

    Keane said: "It was very strange. He can't have been warmed up properly.

    "I didn't fancy him to score. Sometimes a manager can be too clever."

    Scott Souness said: "It is wrong. It's a poor decision.

    He hasn't been warmed up to come on in the 94th minute so he is stone cold.

    "It doesn't matter if he scores every penalty in training, you don't bring on a player who is stone-cold after 90 minutes to come on and take a penalty in that situation."

    That record, however, will be firmly tested when they travel to the King Power Stadium next month to take on Leicester City.
