Cristiano Ronaldo may have reached an incredible landmark with his 800th career goal, but it’s his 801st that is making a splash on social media. 

The Portuguese star was in top form against Arsenal as he scored twice to help Michael Carrick wrap up his caretaker spell in charge with a win at Old Trafford. 

Ronaldo’s opener was a huge milestone, but it was his 801st that proved decisive on the night as he scored from the spot.
