His second and third were typical Ronaldo shots in the box.

And a 3-2 victory over rivals in the top 4 has temporarily put the Red Devils in 4th place, far ahead of Arsenal, who have 4 matches in hand.

The last time Ronaldo scored a Premier League hat-trick for Man Utd was in 2008.

Man Utd scored with The Magpies with six goals and Ronaldo scored three for himself.

Carlos Tevez also scored a brace that evening.

Edwin van der Sar started in the United goal with John O’Shea, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra starring in defence.

The flat midfield quartet includes Ronaldo, Michael Carrick, Anderson and Ryan Giggs.

United legend Wayne Rooney has started his game at the top alongside Argentine Tevez.

Ronaldo’s hat-trick helped him overtake Austria-Czech Josef Bican to become the all-time top scorer.

His 807 goals surpass Bican’s 805.

Of his hat-trick, Ronaldo said: “So happy with my first hat-trick since I returned to Old Trafford!

“Nothing beats the feeling of being back on the pitch and helping the team with goals and efforts.

“We’ve proven once again that we can beat any team on any given day, as long as we work hard and stick together.

“There are no limits to Man Utd! No matter what! Let’s go, demons!”
