New Delhi: Cristiano Ronaldo became the oldest player in Premier League history when he scored 100 goals against Arsenal on Saturday. Ronaldo joins Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs, and Paul Scholes as the fourth United player to reach 100 Premier League goals. Ronaldo has scored 100 goals in his 223rd Premier League appearance, becoming the 33rd player in the competition’s history to do so.

Ronaldo snuck in between two Gunners defenders at the far post to halve the deficit on 34 minutes, after Nemanja Matic’s incisive cross.

The Portugal international struck in the first half of the clash to pull one back for his side after they went 2-0 down, and subsequently paid tribute to his child following the tragedy.

The Portugal star raised his left arm and pointed to the sky in a subdued celebration after the home fans had risen to applaud United’s No. 7 when the clock hit the seventh minute in a show of solidarity.

It was the Portuguese star’s 16th league effort of the 2021/22 season, in his 27th appearance after returning to Old Trafford in the summer.
