Team manager Ralf Rangnick won the last Premier League match of the year with Manchester United thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo.
The English record champion defeated relegation candidates FC Burnley 3-1 (3-1) at Old Trafford and gave Alex Ferguson an early birthday present. The iconic Manchester coach turns 80 on Friday.
Scott McTominay (8th), an own goal from Ben Mee (27th) and Ronaldo (35th) gave them a quick 3-0 lead before Aaron Lennon (38th) broke off before half-time. In the table, the Red Devils returned to sixth place.
Aaron Lennon and Cristiano Ronaldo are the only two players to have scored since tonight in the 2005-06 and 2021-22 Premier League seasons. That reports Guardian journalist Richard Jolly.
Coach Rangnick himself celebrated his third win in his fourth game against United. On Monday he came no further than 1-1 at Kellerkind Newcastle United.
