Cristiano Ronaldo has scored a THIRD of Man Utd's Premier League goals – but is he the most important star of any team?

CRISTIANO RONALDO has shown how reliant Manchester United are on him by scoring 32 per cent of their Premier League goals so far this season.

Which goes some way to answering the question: Where would United be without Ronaldo?

The 37-year-old has scored the joint-second highest proportion of his team's goals this season in the entire Premier League.

Ronaldo has bagged 18 Prem goals in in 29 outings this term and barely any of his team-mates come close.

United's next top scorer is Bruno Fernandes, who has managed 10 in 34 games.

Only Norwich striker Teemu Pukki has scored a higher percentage of his side's Prem goals this season.
