FANS believe that Cristiano Ronaldo's greatest ever achievement is scoring 18 Premier League goals in an abysmal Manchester United team.
The 37-year-old could only smile in disbelief as United were thumped 4-0 at Brighton on Saturday.
United's embarrassing defeat has handed West Ham a chance to leapfrog them on goal difference and pinch a Europa League spot with a game to go.
But if it wasn't for his 18 league goals, the Red Devils could be a lot worse off.
Ronaldo hit a number of winners across all competitions this season.
The legendary forward has scored SEVEN match-winning goals, which is the most in the Prem.

Without Ronaldo's goals, United could've found themselves middle of the pack, fighting with Crystal Palace for tenth.

"He came to destroy this Club, he only thinks of his stats."
With United set to contest either Europa League OR Europa Conference League football next term, Ronaldo's future may not lie at Old Trafford.
The serial winner wants to play Champions League football, leading to doubts over whether he'll stay and play under new boss Erik ten Hag next term.

"Then again, I don’t know where he goes. I think United will be lost without him so I am hoping he is going to be [staying at] United without a doubt.
