Opinion: 2 Things Solskjaer Should Do To Help Ronaldo End His "Goal Drought" In The Premier League

One of the biggest news of the 2021 summer transfer window was Cristiano Ronaldo's reunion with his former club Manchester United. The Red Devil's management and fans who were hoping that the prolific goalscorer would be their "cheat code" in the race for the Premier League trophy, must have been delighted when he scored twice on his home debut against Newcastle United, and when he gave Man U the lead in a 2 - 1 victory over West Ham United.
