The return of Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United from Juventus in September marked his first appearance in the English Premier League after thirteen years away from the club. Ronaldo scored two goals as Newcastle United defeated the Red Devils 4-1 in their second appearance for the Portuguese international.
The gifted striker went on to score against West Ham in a match that United fought back from 1-0 down to win 2-1, giving him three goals in as many games to help him earn the Player of the Month award for the second time. Despite the fact that the player's performances in the Champions League do not count towards this ranking, he has scored two goals in the two matches that have been played thus far.
Ronaldo has done the same thing that Bruno Fernandes did in his debut season for Manchester United, winning the award in his first month of play. In doing so, Ronaldo has joined the record books as the player with the longest gap between wins in the history of the award.
In addition to being named the winner, the player becomes the fourth player in history to win five or more awards, joining Sergio Aguero, Harry Kane, and Steven Gerrard as the previous three. Aguero has seven goals, while Kane and Gerrard each have six.
