(Video) Alternative angle shows Cristiano Ronaldo match-winning penalty in all its glory

An alternative view has captured the brilliance behind Cristiano Ronaldo’s match-winning penalty against Arsenal on Thursday night.

The Portuguese superstar scored twice to take his tally for career goals to a whopping 801.

This proved to be enough to earn three points against Arsenal at Old Trafford in what was a crazy game of football. The five-goal affair went in United’s favour, though neither side will be happy with their defensive displays after both sides were guilty of conceding sloppy goals.

Ronaldo drilled his penalty down the middle, while Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale dived to his left.

Here’s a look at the spot-kick and celebrations from the stands…

We were never in doubt once Ronaldo stood up to the spot. Some questioned whether Bruno Fernandes would take it, but it was left to our top scorer this season.

In one of the best players of all-time, new interim manager Ralf Rangnick has a cracking opportunity to build his team around Ronaldo.

The critics will say that is impossible.
