Cristiano Ronaldo scored a brace against Arsenal last night and helped the Red Devils seal a decisive 3-2 victory in a nail-biting encounter at Old Trafford.
With the game locked at 2-2 in the 67th minutes, United were initially denied a spot-kick for Odegaard’s rash challenge on Fred before VAR overturned the decision.
Stepping up for the spot-kick, Ronaldo smashed the ball straight down the middle past the goalkeeper, firing United into the lead again at the ‘Theatre of Dreams.’
After the goal, Ronaldo broke into his usual ‘Siuuu’ celebration. This time, however, his teammates Jadon Sancho and Diogo Dalot joined in on the celebration, replicating the Portuguese’s signature ‘Siu’ move.

Ronaldo’s influence on the younger crop of players at United is supreme and undeniable.
Earlier on the night, the Portuguese striker had scored his first goal after putting the ball in the farthest corner from Rashford’s square pass, officially becoming the first player to reach the milestone of 800 career goals.
Speaking of signature celebrations, Son Heung-Min was seen celebrating his goal against Brentford in what appeared to be a modified version of his trademark ‘camera’ celebration.
After a 12th-minute own goal from Brentford’s Sergi Canos gave the home side the lead, Son finished off a brilliant counter-attack move in the second half to make it 2-0.
Celebrating the goal, Son shaped his fingers in a gesture imitating Spider Man’s web-shooters, followed by his signature celebration in which he pretends to take pictures with a camera.
