It seems that age does not affect Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo, as his numbers keep rising even as he grows older. The Manchester United man has scored four goals in his last three games against Newcastle, West Ham and Young Boys, hitting the ground running since returning to Old Trafford.
In the most recent game, the No.7 even showed some of his old pace, hitting a top speed of 32.51 km/h during one sprint. That meant he finished the game as the fastest footballer on the pitch, beating Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Jarrod Bowen.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praised Ronaldo after his performance against West Ham.
"Ronaldo feels the big moments and he is ruthless," the coach said.
"He is lethal and has lifted everyone's games.
"He smells out danger and has become a great team player and a great goalscorer."
Thanks to his contribution, Manchester United are currently atop the Premier League on 13 points alongside Liverpool and Chelsea, with the Red Devils extending their record to 29 away games unbeaten in the league.
