It just seems Manchester United talismanic forward Cristiano Ronaldo just can’t stop scoring.

The Portugal international scored a brace in our 2-2 draw Chamions League game against Atalanta on Tuesday night and by so doing wrote his name in the history books.

His two goals means means he has now scored in four straight Champions League games – becoming the first Manchester United player to do so in 18 years.

The 36-year-old has scored against every of our group stage opponents this season. He scored against Young Boys in Bern, before netting decisive goals against Villarreal and Atalanta.

Ronaldo’s brace against Atalanta means he now has the longest scoring sequence of any Manchester United player in the Champions League since Ruud van Nistelrooy in the 2002/03 season.
