Ronaldo’s stats at Southampton revealed
Cristiano Ronaldo has failed to score in six games for Manchester United – but it’s not just his form in front of goal that has left readers in awe.
In the entire 90 minutes, Ronaldo only made 14 dribbles.
His heat map is also extremely bare, with CR7 struggling to keep up with a fast-paced contention at Old Trafford.
Just 33 touches over the course of 90 minutes proves how difficult it is for him to hold the ball.
The 37-year-old usually prefers to use defenders, but two sketchy dribbles against the Saints showed he is now less confident about beating his man.
Ronaldo losing the ball three times also shows how difficult he is to keep the ball – another aspect of his game where he is usually very good.
Seven of his 33 touches were inside the Southampton box, but even so he could only hit two shots in the game.
