Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo has been named Premier League Player of the Month for September.
Ronaldo scored twice on his debut against Newcastle at Old Trafford, and followed that up with a goal during United’s dramatic win at West Ham.
The 36-year-old Portugal international has made an impressive start since returning to Old Trafford, scoring five goals in six appearances, including three goals in the league while scoring the other two in the champions league.
His first goal for Manchester United on his return was a tap in but the second showed the 36-year-old can still outrun defenders has he sped into the box before slotting home his second goal in what happened to be a 4-1 victory for United against Newcastle United.
Ronaldo continued his scoring streak when he levelled up for United after they had gone behind at West Ham, shifting the momentum of the game back in his side’s favour before Jesse Lingard came up with a late winner.
He was unable to prevent United falling to a 1-0 defeat by Aston Villa at the end of September but was judged to have done enough to win the award.
