But the Red Devils gave them something to shout about Bruno Fernandes, Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane sealed a 3-0 win over Brentford.

Ronaldo’s gesture to Mata

Cristiano Ronaldo and Juan Mata turned back the years in the first half and were heavily involved in United’s attacks.

The Spaniard played a ball at the 37-year-old who, with exquisite skill, found his teammate with a one-two.

Mata came to the end and shot on goal, but his right footed shot was a bit wild as he smacked at the ball that went wide of the post.

Ronaldo was in high spirits afterwards as if he had been the majority of the game as he looked at Mata with a huge grin while the midfielder smiled at him.
