    On his Instagram story, Kaka revealed he was visiting Old Trafford – the location of the game – where a number of his compatriots were in action from both sides.

    Kaka was pictured with members of the Arsenal squad, including Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel and Fabio Viera, and also snapped a pic with new Red Devils hero Antony.

    The final pic from his story saw him alongside legendary forward Ronaldo.

    The former midfielder posted the pic alongside the caption: “Always good to see you bro.”

    The pair played together for four years at Real Madrid before Kaka was shipped back to AC Milan on a free transfer, having not lived up to the expectations of his £56million move in 2009.

    Ronaldo did not start the game on Sunday, but did enjoy a 30-minute cameo off the bench.

    Following a summer of wanting to move away, questions had been posed about his role in the team going forward.

    However, the 37-year-old answered those critics with a strong performance which saw him do everything a modern centre-forward would be expected to – including press.

    His off-ball movement, along with an ultimately disastrous change of shape for Mikel Arteta’s Gunners late on, ensured the rest of his United team-mates had acres of space to operate in.

    Despite this, Ronaldo cut a frustrated figure as he was denied a first goal of the season due to some poor passing in the final third – which otherwise would have presented him with a great chance to score.

    Regardless, United made it four wins from their last four and closed the gap to the top of the table to just three points.

    However, Ten Hag warned there was still a long way to go for this team to become a genuine challenger.

    He said: “I’m not thinking we’re there, but we’re on our way in a good direction. We have to keep going.

    “We have to keep pushing, the attitude and mentality, set high standards every day, we have to do better, there’s a lot of room for improvement.”
