The Argentine has played just 21 minutes of first-team football this season, with just one of those minutes coming in the Premier League.

Ronaldo thanked fans after reaching the "beautiful" milestone.

He said on Instagram: "What a beautiful number we’ve achieved together!

"Thank you to all my team-mates, coaches, clubs, family & friends and of course my fans. United we continue!"

Ronaldo could find himself being handed more minutes by new boss Erik ten Hag going forward, with in-form Anthony Martial injured.

The Frenchman picked up a knock in the win over Everton.

And the severity of the injury is still unknown, according to Ten Hag.

The Dutchman said: "I have to see.

"I cannot tell what it is, how serious it is, let's wait the first 24 hours [to see] how serious it is and then I can give an answer.

"Everyone has to take responsibility and Martial also took his responsibility by giving the assist on the first goal."
