Ronaldo avenges spiteful City

Cristiano Ronaldo was stamped on by City's Michael Ball early in the Manchester derby, it was a cowardly spiteful act, delivered with the intent of taking out the Portuguese winger, it went unpunished by the hapless referee Rob Styles, who had a very poor game in my opinion.

Justice was done not long after when Ball tripped Ronaldo inside the penalty area and for once the referee got a decision correct and Ronaldo converted the resulting spot kick. The match finished up 1-0 to the Red's and it means City's ended the season at home without scoring again.

A better side than City would have easily done United today, because they looked tired and jaded. Chelsea will probably beat United in midweek, but by then the league title might be decided but United will want to put on some sort of performance ahead of the Cup final.

There's no doubt about it though the Red's are suffering from a Champions League hangover.

  1. A mark of champions, to win when your not playing at your best level. A great victory for United
