Damning Cristiano Ronaldo stat highlights everything wrong with Man United’s derby display

Damning Cristiano Ronaldo stat highlights everything wrong with Man United’s derby display

 

A remarkable statistic surrounding the struggles of Manchester United to get star man Cristiano Ronaldo into the game versus City earlier today has begun turning heads online this evening.

Silva amongst the goals

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side of course got their Premier League campaign back underway a short time ago.

After returning to winning ways in comprehensive fashion at Tottenham last weekend, the Red Devils welcomed arch rivals City to Old Trafford, aiming to move level on points with their cross-town neighbours in the English top-flight table.

When all was said and done, however, to say that such efforts came up short would be putting it lightly.

An underwhelming (to put it lightly) performance ultimately saw United put to the sword in deserved fashion, by two goals to nil.

An Eric Bailly own goal, followed by Bernardo Silva’s back-post finish, proved the difference on the day, though in truth, the hosts were lucky not to be downed in considerably more comprehensive fashion.

CR7’s woes

As outlined above, meanwhile, on the back of the action coming to a close in Manchester on Saturday, an altogether damning statistic, highlighting the struggles of Cristiano Ronaldo across the 90 minutes, has since turned plenty of heads online.

As revealed by statistician Statman Dave, United’s main man managed just 1 (ONE) touch in the Man City penalty area this afternoon.

Remarkably, this is one fewer than Ronaldo racked up in his own box, aptly summing up just how extensive the visitors’ domination truly proved at the Theatre of Dreams.
