Fans see Cristiano Ronaldo ‘telling Marcus Rashford where to go’ during Manchester United 1-1 Chelsea

Ronaldo scored his 23rd goal of the season in the game at Old Trafford, catching an exquisite Nemanja Matic pass and providing a stunning finish over Edouard Mendy for the equaliser.

The 37-year-old was also praised for his effort, pace of work and leadership at Old Trafford.

One example that caught the eye was Ronaldo giving Rashford positional instructions when the 24-year-old appeared to be taking up the wrong space in the first half.

With Chelsea’s Thiago Silva on the ball, Ronaldo turned to gesture and let Rashford know where he needed to be.

Rashford was replaced on day 79 by Juan Mata and had a short run to hug Tuchel.

But fans claimed he put more effort into that gesture than he did on the pitch and said it was “the fastest he’s moved in months”.

Looking poorly, Rashford has scored just five times in 30 games this season and hasn’t found the net since January.
