But he failed to lead his side to three points and was lackluster in a United attack that produced just two shots on target.

After the match, Carragher wrote the Twitter: “To get out of my way!”

The Sky Sports expert was referring to Evra’s comments weeks earlier.

The former United defender has suggested that some ex-pros, including Carragher, lack the qualifications to pass judgment on Ronaldo.

He said on Amazon Prime Video: “Some players like Jamie Carragher, he’s had, I think, 775 games and Cristiano has scored 801 goals today and those kinds of people are talking about Cristiano.

“I think people have to stay in their lane. Some people wake up and want to talk about Cristiano.”

Carragher, like other pundits this season, has criticized Ronaldo for offering nothing other than his goals.

The former Liverpool star has suggested CR7 may be a passenger in games he doesn’t score in, like the Wolves clash.

Carragher said: “How can a club the size of Manchester United still count on a guy almost 37 years old?

“He was amazing, his goalscoring record is amazing, but if he doesn’t score he’s a passenger in the game. You have to accept that, that’s a fact.

“If Cristiano Ronaldo has gone four or five games without scoring, it’s a huge problem for Manchester United.”
