goals. 

When the 37-year-old dashed in from Nemanja Matic's cross, he completed his Premier League hundredth 19 years after making his Premier League debut. 

The Red Devils had fallen down 2-0 after goals from Nuno Tavares and Bukayo Saka. Ronaldo's strike brought them back into the game. 

It occurred at the conclusion of a traumatic week for Ronaldo, who announced the death of his infant boy on Monday and then missed United's loss to Liverpool the following day.

With all of those goals in United jerseys, Ronaldo joins former teammates Wayne Rooney, Paul Scholes, and Ryan Giggs as the club's fourth player to reach the milestone. 

Despite the team's disappointing season altogether, Ronaldo has already scored 16 league goals since his return to Old Trafford. 

Before joining Real Madrid in 2009, the United legend had already scored 84 goals in the competition, with his best goalscoring season coming in 2007-08, when the Red Devils won the Premier League and the Champions League.

Last September, the Portuguese talisman scored a brace on his second debut for the club against Newcastle United, 12 years and 124 days after his last Premier League goal in May 2009, the second-longest gap between two goals by any player in Premier League history (after Matt Jackson's 13 years and 187 days between 1993 and 2006). 

After turning 37 in February, Ronaldo has also scored two hat-tricks in the tournament, in 3-2 victories against Tottenham and Norwich City. After Teddy Sheringham and Graham Alexander, he became only the third player aged 37 or older to score multiple goals in a Premier League match, and only the second to do it more than once (Alexander also twice).
