20.11.2021 » How far can Cristiano Ronaldo take Manchester United this season?
Manchester United fans, former players and pundits all felt that the return of CR7 would instantly propel them up the Premier League table, as the reds look to win their first Premier League title in almost a decade. As expected, Ronaldo has hit the ground running for United – marking his home return with 2 goals in a big win against Newcastle, as well as the opener in a gritty win on the road at West Ham United. The Portuguese superstar has also netted twice in two Champions League games, the opener in a defeat to Young Boys and an injury-time winner as the Red Devils squeezed past Villareal. But with United languishing down in 6th in the Premier League table, out of the Carabao Cup already and with work to do to progress in the Champions League, it has been a tough start to the season for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men. The Norwegian is a man under pressure and is held in the highest esteem by United fans but how he needs Ronaldo and his team to start firing, in order to preserve his job.
Cristiano Ronaldo - Magic:
United to break their Premier League duck?
Although Manchester United are the most successful side in Premier League history, their 8 year absence from the winners podium has felt like forever for the fans.
The return of Cristiano Ronaldo was supposed to instantly plug the gap but with the Red Devils already at odds 40/1 to win the Premier League with the bet365 offer code that allows new players get up to 100 bonus credits – it looks a long shot for United to be lifting the Premier League trophy at the end of the season.
Ole and Ronny to win a trophy?
Key to the frustration Manchester United fans are currently experiencing at the moment is the lack of trophies they have been able to put in the cabinet.
During Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's 3 year reign so far, United have failed to win a single trophy, a statistic that simply does not sit well with the Manchester United heirachy and their loyal fans.
They are already out of the Carabao Cup this season but still have the FA Cup, Premier League and either the Champions League or Europa League to play for.
Ronaldo is a man synonymous with winning trophies, at every club he plays, and the Red Devils are 13/2 with Bet 365 to win any trophy this season and end their recent pain.
Yet another Golden Boot for CR7?
Everywhere he has been, Cristiano Ronaldo has banged the goals in. A Golden Boot winner in the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A – as well as the European Championships and the Champions League, CR7 epitomises the phrase ‘proven goal scorer’.
There are plenty of excellent marksmen in the Premier League, with the likes of Harry Kane, Mohamed Salah and Romelu Lukaku all more than capable of netting plenty of goals.
At 9/2 with Betway, Cristiano Ronaldo is currently the third favourite (behind Lukaku and Salah) to win the Golden Boot and his goals could hold the key to any potential Manchester United success this season.
