(Video) Cristiano Ronaldo is Johnny-on-the-spot to extend Man United’s lead to three

Cristiano Ronaldo has added a third goal for Manchester United against Burnley this evening.

Man United headed into tonight’s game knowing that they needed to win in order to keep pace with their top-four rivals.

After Scott McTominay fired home early in the game, you figured it could be a long night for relegation-battling Burnley, who are without first-choice goalkeeper Nick Pope.

Sean Dyche’s men conceded an own-goal soon after, with Ben Mee getting the final touch, before Cristiano Ronaldo added a third to complete the first-half drubbing.

McTominay’s effort from the edge of the area was brilliantly saved by Burnley’s deputy keeper Wayne Hennessey, but he could do nothing to prevent the follow-up from Ronaldo.

How many goals has Ronaldo scored in his career just from being at the right place at the right time?
