Fans Spot Cristiano Ronaldo 'Telling Marcus Rashford Where To Go' During Manchester United 1-1 Chelsea

Cristiano Ronaldo appeared to point at Marcus Rashford and tell him where to go during Manchester United's 1-1 draw with Chelsea.

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

The 37-year-old also drew praise for his effort, work-rate and leadership at Old Trafford.

One instance which caught the eye saw Ronaldo give Rashford positional instructions when the 24-year-old looked to be occupying the wrong space in the first half.

With Chelsea's Thiago Silva on the ball, Ronaldo had turned around to gesture and inform Rashford where he needed to be.

Rashford had been replaced in the 79th by Juan Mata and got a little sprint on to embrace Tuchel.

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

The academy graduate and boyhood United fan's relationship with his own fans has soured in recent times, with Rashford telling a supporter to "come over and say it to my face" after being heckled following the defeat to Atletico Madrid last month.

Looking well out of sorts, Rashford has scored just five times in 30 appearances this season and hasn't found the net since January.
