Cristiano Ronaldo proved that persistence is a virtue as he scored his 31st goal of an astonishing season to spare Manchester United embarrassment in a crucial 1-0 win at rock-bottom Derby.

With his ninth chance of the game, and in the 76th minute, Ronaldo finally broke brave Derby´s resistence by scoring the only goal to keep United firmly in the hunt for back-to-back titles.
