Manchester United had a disappointing performance in Tuesday’s Premier League double-red meeting as they lost 4-0 to Liverpool in a game where Ronaldo didn’t play. British journalist Piers Morgan made it clear that without Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United would have to fight for relegation this season.
Cristiano Ronaldo did not play. Manchester United seemed to lack a powerful weapon in the frontcourt, and the team could not pose a threat to Liverpool’s goal.
Morgan is a big fan of Arsenal, but also a fan of Ronaldo. After Ronaldo scored a hat-trick in the last round, Morgan praised Ronaldo.
After Manchester United lost to Liverpool, Morgan said: “If there is no Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United will fight to avoid relegation this season.”
He pointed out: “Manchester United’s performance tonight was absolutely terrible.”
Manchester United have been double-killed by Liverpool this season, and they have been scored 9 goals by their opponents, but they have not scored 1 goal.
Manchester United are currently sixth in the Premier League and are vying for a place in the Champions League next season.
Ronaldo has made 28 appearances in the Premier League this season, scoring 15 goals and providing 3 assists. 7 appearances in the Champions League, scoring 6 goals. He played 35 times in all competitions and scored 21 goals.
