Cristiano Ronaldo was understandably frustrated by Manchester United’s defeat.

Ronaldo played all 90 minutes and failed to score as United lost 4-2 to Leicester City.

At the final whistle Ronaldo looked a forlorn figure.

Ronaldo’s annoyance is easy to empathise with. United threw away a lead with sloppy defending and then conceded right back after equalising at 2-2.

The forward will also be frustrated with his own display.

 

Ronaldo had a chance to double United’s early lead and saw his shot saved by Kasper Schmeichel. This would have put United 2-0 up before half-time, only for Leicester to equalise soon after.

In the second half his best chance came from a Marcus Rashford pass, but he was unable to stay onside, and then missed the shot any way.

Ronaldo was not the biggest problem by any means, the defence and midfield was awful, but this was the type of game where simply everywhere needs improvement.

More will be expected from United and Ronaldo on Wednesday night against Atalanta.
