Ronaldo Passes 800 Goals in Man Utd Win Over Arsenal

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 800th career goal and then converted a penalty kick as Manchester United rallied from behind to overcome Arsenal.

Arsenal scored first in dubious circumstances, as Manchester United interim coach Ralf Rangnick watched from the directors’ box, beside former England captain David Beckham.

Emile Smith Rowe scored from the outskirts of the box, as United goalkeeper David de Gea lay wounded on the ground, his back to the goal.

Assuming De Gea had collapsed after being bumped upon by his own teammate Fred, referee Martin Atkinson awarded the goal.

Bruno Fernandes equalized a minute before the interval, setting up a tense second half between Jadon Sancho and Fred.

In the second half, Martin Odegaard scored a well-taken equalize after Ronaldo had given United the lead.

After examining Odegaard’s tackle on Fred on a pitchside monitor, Atkinson awarded United a penalty, which Ronaldo calmly converted.

Rangnick sat back and took notes, but he stood to cheer Ronaldo’s triumph.

United are now three points behind fourth-placed Arsenal following two victories and a draw under interim manager Michael Carrick.

Carrick, a stand-in for the last three games, announced his departure from the club, where he has been a player and coach since 2006.
