Cristiano Ronaldo shares brilliant message after Man United’s win over Arsenal

Cristiano Ronaldo recently took to social media with a brilliant message to his teammates after the 3-1 triumph over Arsenal.

As reported by Sports Brief, the Red Devils executed their tactics almost flawlessly to sink the table-toppers for their fourth Premier League win in a row. For Arsenal, it marked an end to their 100% start to the league season, although Mikel Arteta’s side still remains top of the pile.

Ronaldo is no stranger to the classic Man United-Arsenal rivalry, but he was once again started on the bench for the clash for the fourth Premier League game in a row.
