Cristiano Ronaldo put in a man-of-the-match display in Man Utd’s 3-0 win over Brentford.


Manchester United stopped talk of a potential walk-out demonstration by beating Brentford 3-0 in Ralf Ranignick’s final home game as interim manager.

The pre-match talk before the Monday Night Football clash surrounded fan protests outside Old Trafford, with the idea of a 73rd-minute walk-out devised by a group of fans.

But goals from Bruno Fernandes, a Cristiano Ronaldo penalty and Raphael Varane quashed talk of fan unrest in their final home game of the season – with the protest struggling to attract much traction.


On the pitch, United and Brentford produced a thrilling tie that saw both sides go full throttle with fast-paced attacks and high defensive lines – right from the very first whistle.

Manchester United fans led calls to walk out of Old Trafford on the 73rd minute.


Brentford could have opened the scoring in the opening seconds. A slick kick-off routine saw Christian Eriksen play in Bryan Mbuemo down the right but a last-ditch challenge from Alex Telles denied the Bees forward. Then United got round the back of Brentford two times in quick succession. Diogo Dalot’s expert ball found Ronaldo through on goal, but the Portuguese forward then lost his footing and the chance fell away.

Bruno Fernandes opens the scoring against Brentford at Old Trafford.


Brentford were made to pay for their missed chances. Ronaldo refused to give up on a long ball forward and muscled Rico Henry off the ball, before winning a penalty off the Bees left-back.

After Fernandes missed against Arsenal last weekend, Ronaldo took penalty duties back in control to get the goal his endeavours on the night deserved.


Cristiano Ronaldo doubles Manchester United’s lead against Brentford, after a confident finish from the penalty spot.


And it wasn’t long until United got their third through Varane, who struck home from a corner via a wicked deflection off Henry and past Raya.

That result-clinching third came just two minutes before the planned protest, with Old Trafford a very feel-good environment after a wretched season – as it closes its doors for the summer.


Raphael Varane gives United a 3-0 advantage against Brentford with his first ever goal for the club.
