Chris Sutton football pundit at the BBC 5 live has come up with a very controversial statement where he says Raul Jimenez the Mexican who was rampant on Monday night is far better than Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani, the veterans who failed to make a sturdy impact on the game.

Micah Richards also a football pundit and former Manchester City right-back immediately defended the two Man United strikers saying, “He played better today than Cavani and Ronaldo, yes. Cavani has built his career on running in behind, playing on the defender’s shoulder, smart and cute movement. He’s one of the best at it.”

“You look at Cavani, he’s a year older than me, so he’s coming towards the end of his career. We are talking about strikers… who has scored more goals this season, Ronaldo or Jimenez?”

“We’re not talking about Man United as a whole, we’re talking about the strikers. You’ve said Jimenez is better than Cavani and Ronaldo – you’ve given your argument and I’ve asked a simple question ‘who has scored more goals’.”

Bruno Lage’s side was sensational in the match as they secured a vital 3 points in their favour to close the gap between them and Man United as they currently sit at eighth place, 3 points behind the seventh-placed United team.
