Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal rescued Manchester United from defeat against Chelsea after both sides share the spoils to play out a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford, Sportivation.com.ng reports.

It was a one-sided game as the visitors dominated proceedings from start to finish, but David De Gea was in an inspired form to deny Chelsea as the first half ended goalless.

Marcos Alonso had opened the scoring for the visitors on the hour mark; firing a low effort past David de Gea after being found unmarked inside the United penalty area by a Kai Havertz cross.

It was a goal that was a long-time coming for Chelsea, who had dominated the opening hour of chances and enjoyed the lion’s share of possession.

Yet it took just two minutes for United to draw level as the Blues allowed their former midfielder Nemanja Matic time and space on the ball to thread a pass-through for Ronaldo, who took a touch before firing a powerful effort into the roof of the net past Edouard Mendy.

This meeting was his 12th Premier League fixture against Chelsea in his career and he found the net with a lethal finish past Edouard Mendy. it was his first-ever Premier League goal against Chelsea.

That goal meant Ronaldo has now scored all five of United’s most recent five Premier League goals, and eight of their last nine.

It was Ronaldo’s 17th Premier League goal of the season for Manchester United.
