Cristiano Ronaldo has ended his six game goal drought as Manchester United wins at old Trafford.

source - BBC news

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first 2022 goal against Brighton on Tuesday night. The pressure has been on him as the team hasn't been performing in the past few games. A lot of critics has been on him but he proved them all wrong on Tuesday night as he fired Manchester United into the lead at about 6 minutes into the second half.

Bruno Fernandes added a second goal in the final minutes of the injury time. Bruno had a glorious chance wasted as he was unable to get past Sanchez. He had just the goalkeeper to beat, but he wasted the chance. However, Ronaldo had an excellent header goes wide off the post.

United actually gave away some passes against Brighton, they give the ball away when they get pressed with "any great intensity". There was a moment Fred delivered a straight pass to Adam Webster, a pass meant for Ronaldo.


United had one decent chance when Ronaldo slides a backheel for Jadon Sancho running into the box. But Brighton goalkeeper (Sanchez) turned Sancho's shot away. It's not done there, just after Sanchez saved the ball. David de Gea was forced to make an excellent save to deny Moder's header on the other end.

Manchester United players were happy to have atleast won the game as they have failed to secure the full 3 points in the last three successive games in which they have taken the lead first.

No change in Manchester feeling for Brighton.

Brighton have now drawn 2 and lost 12 out of 14 away games at Old Trafford. They have even failed to win their last 20 trips to face either Manchester city or Manchester United.

Losing to United anyway couldn't be a surprise to Brighton. Brighton were actually the better side at the first half, but they couldn't take the lead because they lack a potent finisher.

Moder (brighton) couldn't have done something more better with the header he had de Gea turned away. Not even the shot that hit the bar. Danny Welbeck almost snatched an equalizer against his former club as he sent a header from eight yard (8), he was actually assisted by Tariq Lamptey, his fellow substitute.

Manchester United win over Brighton is a sign of relief for United.

Manchester United win over Brighton is a sign of hope for United as they prepare to face Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their Champions league tie on Wednesday, 23rd of February.

United have been on a bad form in the last few games. Having drawn three successive games in which Rangnick's men took the lead. But Rangnick didn't want this happening for the fourth time. Just after Cristiano Ronaldo gave United a 1-0 lead, Brighton's men reduced to 10 men with over thirty minutes remaining.

This was a huge advantage for United after Brighton's captain Lewis Dunk was shown a red card. United were able to add a goal after that card.

Last night, the Champions League game starts again as Manchester City scores 5 away goal against Sporting Lisbon. That wad a huge win and a huge scoreline in the competition.
