Another match, another moment of magic by Ronaldo – we are not surprised. We had some luck in the second consecutive game and that’s a surprise, for me at least.

The in-form Portuguese winger did not hesitate admit Fulham made life extremely difficult for the Reds but that does take away the value of this victory.

‘Maybe we were a bit lucky,’ He Who Scored The Winning Goal Again said, ‘but football is like this. Sometimes you are the better team and don’t win the game. We played hard and this is an important result for us.’

‘The most important thing is Manchester. We don’t think about Chelsea. Nine points is a very good advantage, but we need to carry on.’

‘After the Champions League game the team showed that it was a bit tired. It was a very tough game, very difficult. Fulham played well.’

Ronaldo ran to the sidelines after his mesmerising run sealed the points for United to celebrate with one of his closest friends who once had been one of the finest players of United but could not rediscover his true form after an serious injury.

‘The goal was for my team-mates, my club, but especially for Gaby because he is my friend. He told me before the game that I would score, so I ran straight to him.’

(Please note: anyone who does not know who ‘Gaby’ is should urgently watch all United games between the summer of 2004 and September 2005.)
