Manchester United's Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo made another addition to his illustrious list of records on Saturday as his 50th club career hat-trick and second Premier League treble of the season earned a 3-2 victory over Norwich City.

Ronaldo's strikes not only bagged under-fire United an important win, it also boosted their Champions League qualification hopes. United moved past Arsenal into fifth place, three points behind Tottenham in the table.

Ronaldo's double put the home team in command, but goals either side of half-time from Kieran Dowell and Teemu Pukki drew Norwich level.

David de Gea then needed to make a brilliant save to deny Pukki putting Norwich in front before Ronaldo completed his hat-trick from a free-kick.

"The results elsewhere were good. But it doesn't make sense to look to other results. We need to raise our game," said United's interim manager Ralf Rangnick.

Rangnick's comments were understandable as the ease with which the Red Devils were opened up by the lowest scoring side in the league does not bode well for their next match against title-chasing Liverpool on Tuesday.

Even so, the spotlight is now back on Ronaldo and his incredible record, which can be seen below.
