Manchester United fans have criticised Cristiano Ronaldo’s angry outburst at full-time after the 1-1 draw against Chelsea.
Red Devils forward Marcus Rashford, 36, was unexpectedly benched by Michael Carrick for the trip to Stamford Bridge. Carrick chose a front pair of Jadon Sancho and Jadon Rashford.
The pacier and harder-working front line frustrated Thomas Tuchel’s side and even went a goal ahead courtesy of Sancho capitalising on Jorginho’s error and putting the ball past Edouard Mendy.
Ronaldo was finally substituted in 64 minutes by Sancho. Chelsea won the match just five minutes later.
Jorginho levelled the score after Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s clumsy challenge on Thiago Silva when attempting to clear the ball.
Ronaldo appeared frustrated from the start and was even given a yellow for sarcastically cheering on an Anthony Taylor decision.
Portugal’s star player failed to hit a single target and also did not manage to dribble against a single opponent.
All of this led to frustrations boiling over at full-time, when he angrily stormed down a tunnel without clapping United supporters or shaking hands.

His “poor attitude” has not gone unnoticed by the Red Devils faithful, who took to Twitter to criticise the star’s behaviour despite securing an important point.
One fan stated: “Lacks class. Never been a team player.”
Another fan tweeted: “He tried so hard to make drama out of the slightest of things.”
A third point was made: “He’s done that most of the away games, nothing new.”
