Manchester United dropped more crucial points in the Premier League title race on Saturday with a 1-1 draw against Everton but at least Cristiano Ronaldo has a picture of himself plastered across his personalised shin pads.
I repeat, Cristiano Ronaldo has a pair of custom shin pads with his face on them. What a time to be alive.
As he was preparing to replace summer signing Jadon Sancho in the second half at Old Trafford, cameras panned to the five-time Ballon d'Or winner chatting to one of United's coaching staff when fans quickly spotted his unique look.

As you can imagine, Ronaldo's decision to wear shinpads with his own face on them picked up plenty of attention on social media.

Anthony Martial opened the scoring just before the half time break with a great finish but Andros Townsend, complete with Ronaldo's iconic SIUUUU celebration, made it 1-1 after an impressive breakaway.
The Toffees thought they had snatched all three points late on but referee Michael Oliver overturned the goal because defender Yerry Mina was offside.

Yerry Mina has the ball in the net for Everton but VAR chalks it off after replays showed the Columbian was offside. Still all to play for.
