Cristiano Ronaldo might have showed why Erik ten Hag prefers to start him on the bench for Manchester United, with his terrible piece of attempted skill

Ronaldo's beginning of the campaign has been marred by his desire to leave United this summer, an aspiration that was never fulfilled in the transfer window

With his chances of leaving all but ended with the slamming shut of said window last week, the 37-year-old now has to get on with life at Old Trafford

The 37-year-old did get on to the pitch around the hour mark on Sunday, as debutant Antony made way for his fellow forward, but not before grabbing his first goal for the club.

It was one of the better performances of late for the former Real Madrid star, as he proved he has the skills to fit into Ten Hag's system

The five time Ballon d'Or winner is having to get used to not starting games this season, having only been in the line up once out of United's first three games

Antony scored just days after signing for United and one Arsenal fan really will have to watch what he says in future, after discovering he has the power to jinx his own team
