Manchester United megastar Cristiano Ronaldo was understandably ecstatic at the full-time whistle as his late header secured a dramatic comeback victory over Atalanta. Having fallen 2-0 behind by half time, Old Trafford let out a chorus of boos as the pressure continued to mount on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but a noticeable difference after the break rendered it a matter of time before United emerged victorious.
Mario Pasalic and Merih Demiral put Atalanta two to the good within half an hour, stunning Old Trafford into silence.
Solskjaer was left scratching his head on the bench as his side spurned a handful of chances to mount their comeback, but a crucial half-time team talk was clearly delivered effectively.
A cool finish from Rashford set the wheels in motion, before a Harry Maguire strike and a trademark Ronaldo header sent the ground into raptures.
When the referee blew the final whistle, Ronaldo sank to his knees in celebration, jubilant in the knowledge that his goal made the difference.
