Ronaldo to the rescue

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer described Cristiano Ronaldo as incredible following the Portuguese star's rescue act in the 2-2 draw with Atalanta on Tuesday.

Ronaldo scored both United goals and the Red Devils are 1.40 to win Group F of the Champions League and 12122.00 to go all the way and lift the trophy.

United twice had to come from behind in Bergamo with Ronaldo equalising in the dying moments of the match to keep his side top of their group with two games remaining.

And Solskjaer was gushing in his praise for the 36-year-old who continues to ease the pressure on the Old Trafford boss.

Speaking to BT Sport after the match, Solskjaer said: "We all have our roles and responsibilities, he is a leader.

"He does provide those moments. I am sure Chicago Bulls didn't mind having Michael Jordan. I know votes are coming up, Cristiano is getting better and better for us."

It was Ronaldo's 127th goal in 303 games in all competitions for Manchester United and he is the oldest player to score two or more in one game for the club in European competition.

He has scored five goals in four games in this season's competition and Solskjaer was delighted the late chance fell to his star striker.

"Cristiano is just incredible," Solskjaer added.

"That's what he does and if there's anyone you want the chance - and a difficult chance - to go to in the last minute it is him. His technique on that volley was incredible."

The big games are coming thick and fast with United hosting rivals City in the Manchester derby on Saturday lunchtime, which you can catch on ourĀ Sports Live Streaming platform.
