Cristiano Ronaldo was Manchester United’s savior once again on Thursday night as he rescued a point for the Red Devils against Chelsea.
Just two minutes after Marcos Alonso opened the scoring for Chelsea at Old Trafford, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner responded with a brilliant goal of his own.
Ronaldo latched onto a beautifully lofted pass from Nemanja Matic and then rifled the ball past Edouard Mendy on the half volley
The finish from the 37-year-old was superb and the first touch he produced to set up his 17th Premier League goal of the campaign was arguably even better.

Meanwhile, it was a rare positive moment for United fans in what’s otherwise been a miserable season overall.
To make the goal even better, Ronaldo and Matic’s sons have recreated it and the footage – which quickly went viral on Friday evening – is just so heartwarming.

You just absolutely love to see it.
Cristiano Ronaldo Jr and Matic’s sons are both part of the United academy, although it remains to be seen whether the latter will stay there when his father leaves the club at the end of the 2021/22 season.
