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.
The image was posted on like by @Utd_Analytics and garnered a whole lot of reaction - mainly negative aimed at Rashford another underwhelming display.
Happened all night pal. Terrible performance— Mark Goldbridge (@markgoldbridge) April 29, 2022
Ronaldo then started tracking back on the left wing himself, seeing as Rashford wasn't interested in listening.— Aniruddh Sridhar (@AniruddhSridhar) April 29, 2022
Rashford genuinely looks like he has given up it's perhaps worth noting if he doesn't do it under Ten Hag next season that he needs to look elsewhere.— UtdActive 🔴 (@UtdActive) April 28, 2022
I was at the game mate let me tell you rashford didn't even try or even bother it was horrendous. Cr7 was all over that pitch he was the leader without him we'll be doomed & supposedly he was suppose to be the problem ayy.— Fizzy Mahmood (@Rudeboiifizzy) April 29, 2022
Its going to be really hard for Marcus to come back from this. His form over the last 18months has been atrocious which has just damaged his reputation amongst fans. I hope he can humble himself enough to start developing his game again but I just dont see it happening tbh— Chris Larson (@10ChrisLarson) April 28, 2022
When even Ronaldo has to tell you how to defend, it shows how little effort you’re putting in. Marcus needs to spend less time blaming fans & more time putting a proper shift in. If fans say Maguire isnt cpt material, then Rashford isnt number 10 material. He’s got one more szn.— ETH 🤌 (@JYB_Utd) April 29, 2022
We should bin him— Hasan Ali (@HasanAliMhmd) April 28, 2022
He is not even bothered
Ronaldo was covering for him during the game most of the time
Rashford got a rinsing from former United captain Roy Keane prior to the game for smiling in the warm-up, while plenty of United supporters also took issue with the England international rushing to give Thomas Tuchel a hug at the final whistle.
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.
