Five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo definitely has eyes on getting back amongst the goals once again in the Premier League when his Manchester United side take on West Ham United at Old Trafford on Saturday. Cristiano Ronaldo was an angry man when he was taken off with around twenty (20) minutes to go during the league win over newcomers Brentford earlier this week in what was a rescheduled match.

Cristiano Ronaldo was not able to score while he was on the pitch against the Bees on his return from a muscle injury and the Portugal international felt he had time to get at least one goal only for him to be subbed off for club skipper Harry Maguire. Manchester United were leading 2-0 when Ronaldo left the pitch thanks to the second half goals from Anthony Elanga and Mason Greenwood. English substitute Marcus Rashford scored a third goal for United shortly after coming on around the same time as the Ronaldo substitution before Brentford striker Ivan Toney scored a consolation goal for the London team with five minutes remaining for a 3-1 scoreline.

The league drought for Cristiano Ronaldo is now up to two games following his failure to find the back of the net against the Bees at the Brentford Community Stadium on Wednesday. He had earlier missed the Aston Villa double header due to the aforementioned injury.

Ronaldo was absent for the 1-0 home win over Villa in the third round of the FA Cup and the 2-2 away draw over the same opposition in the league. Before the Brentford game, Ronaldo made his last league appearance at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers in what was the first game of the year for his team. He failed to score in a 1-0 home defeat at the hands of Wolves.
