Cristiano Ronaldo let the Premier League know that he means business with a seismic return to Old Trafford on Saturday.
The legendary Portuguese superstar looked right back at home as he flew out of the blocks in the famous Manchester United red.
Newcastle simply had no answers for Ronaldo, who ran riot all afternoon long, netting a brace in the process and driving the Red Devils to a comfortable win.
They were ominous signs for everyone else in the Premier League as it finally seems the sleeping giant is beginning to rise again.
Alongside the likes of Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes, Luke Shaw and Raphael Varane, Ronaldo promises to be the spark that ignites a wild fire at Old Trafford.
While his first goal was a poachers dream, his second strike was far more akin to what we have become used to from one of the greatest goal-getters of all time.
Ronaldo sped into the space, notching up an incredible speed before controlling and lashing home through the legs of the Newcastle goalkeeper.
Now, a fascinating clip has begun to do the round showing that Ronaldo is going to be far better off at United than he was at Juventus.
In an interesting comparison clip, Ronaldo’s second strike on Saturday is shown alongside on almost identical situation during his Juventus days.
Where on Saturday Ronaldo was picked out perfect by Shaw, his teammates at Juve were not quite as clinical.
The attack ultimately fizzled out miserably, leaving a visibly frustrated Ronaldo to remonstrate with his colleagues.
Oh dear – you can just see that Ronaldo is going to take it up to a whole new level during this second spell at Old Trafford.
United will be desperate to close the chasm to Manchester City that has been carved out over the last few years and with Ronaldo in their ranks, that is a very real possibility.
After just four games of the new season, United are looking incredibly strong and could take quite some stopping as the year goes on.
