Manchester -Manchester United managed to silence Tottenham Hotspur 3-2 in the Premier League. Without Cristiano Ronaldo , Antonio Conte believes the Red Devils will not win!
Playing at Old Trafford, Sunday (13/3/2022) early morning WIB, Ronaldo became the main character for MU in this match. Of the 10 shots taken by Ralf Rangnick’s squad in this match, eight of them were made by the veteran Portuguese striker.
The result is effective, because three goals were created. In the 12th minute, he, who was not escorted, fired a long-range shot that landed heavily in Hugo Lloris’ goal.
The second goal was also made in the first half, precisely in the 38th minute. With one touch in the penalty box, he completed a horizontal crossing Jadon Sancho. At this moment, Ronaldo was again free and unguarded.
Ronaldo became Manchester United’s savior in this match with the third goal in the 81st minute. He headed the ball to finish a corner kick into a goal. Like the previous two goals, there was no resistance from Tottenham players for an aerial duel.
Antonio Conte is clearly annoyed with this result, because it broke the positive trend of the previous two games. But he couldn’t say anything other than praising Ronaldo for destroying Tottenham’s defense.
“You can’t buy experience. But games like this will give you valuable experience. We have a lot of young players in the team and hopefully after this match they will learn,” Conte told Sky Sports after the game.
“We are talking about a player who not only showed tonight that he is a top player. Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are the two best players in the world of this era. When they meet players like this, they will decide the game.”
The addition of these three points makes MU back up to fourth with 50 points from 29 matches. While Tottenham are in seventh position with 45 points from 27 matches.
