How Man United dressing room reacted to stunning Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick

David de Gea and Victor Lindelof have heaped praise on their "unbelievable" teammate Cristiano Ronaldo after his devastating hat-trick put Manchester United firmly back in the top-four mix. The 37-year-old netted his 60th career treble at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner needed just seven minutes to make a mark against the rock-bottom Canaries and, predictably, had the final say as well after United found themselves on the receiving end of a fightback. United were level with Norwich with just 15 minutes to play before that man Ronaldo saved them in the dying embers.

A swerving free-kick took Ronaldo's goal tally for this Premier League season to 15 and, in the process, means only three points separate Champions League hopefuls Tottenham, United and Arsenal although the Gunners do have an extra game to play.

Arsenal and Tottenham were both beaten on Saturday afternoon. Next up for Ronaldo and United is a daunting trip to Anfield where they will take on title-chasing Liverpool on Tuesday night 8pm.

During a post-match interview with MUTV, De Gea said: "It's unbelievable and his career is crazy. Making hat-tricks, scoring goals, helping the team. Of course, he's one of the best players in history. It's great when he's scoring goals, he's great for the team."

Lindelof added: "Even when it's 2-2 we know we can score another goal, so it's important to keep calm and control the game a little bit better.

"Cristiano scored another goal. Fantastic. It's just unbelievable. That way he keeps on scoring goals is unbelievable. We see him every day and the work he puts in, the way he takes care of his body and his mentality is unbelievable. I'm not really sure what else to say."
