We Have Christiano Ronaldo and You Don’t

Manchester United 2, Everton 1

Manchester was able to steal a victory out of an otherwise spotty performance against Everton at Old Trafford this morning.  A moment of individual brilliance combined with a late game penalty, both compliments of Christiano Ronaldo, was enough to pull Man U back within a point of Arsenal atop the table.  Ronaldo’s form this season has been simply ridiculous.  Everton must feel cheated, however, as their form throughout the match was of high-class.  They played attacking football, not simply packing it in on defense as so many visitors to Old Trafford tend to do.  All the same, there’s only one Ronaldo and I’m glad he’s on my side.
