Arsenal fans were spotted broadcasting Cristiano Ronaldo’s second Manchester United debut as they sat in the Emirates stands.
Ronaldo, in true Ronaldo style, marked his return to Old Trafford with two goals that helped United to a 3-1 victory over Newcastle.
Understandably, the attention of most football fans has turned to the return of the five-time Balon d’Or winner, which has taken the Gunners’ attention a lot.
They faced an unmissable clash at the bottom of the table at home against Norwich, which they won thanks to a lone goal from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the second half.
However, it seems even their own fans who were at the game were distracted by Ronaldo’s second United debut.
A video shared on social media showed a young fan on his phone watching the action from Old Trafford.
He appears to be catching up on Ronaldo’s opening first half during the 3-hour kickoff interval, as players can be seen warming up and an announcer is heard back- plan.
How many goals will Ronaldo add to his brace against Newcastle? Let us know in the “Comments” section.

Who can blame the boy? It’s not every day that one of the greatest footballers of all time returns to the Premier League.
He probably wasn’t even born the last time Ronaldo graced English football in 2009.
He will have to wait a bit, however, to see the 36-year-old in person. Arsenal won’t host United this season until April next year.
Ronaldo opened the scoring for United just before the break when he touched after Magpies goalkeeper Freddie Woodman knocked the ball over.
He then returned the advantage to the Red Devils after Newcastle equalized, this time with weak left-footed effort from inside the box.
Goals from Bruno Fernandes and Jesse Lingard closed the win and Ronaldo played the full 90 minutes, despite some form issues earlier this week.
