Man Utd vs Chelsea LIVE: Cristiano Ronaldo goal – Premier League result and final score

‘We have to be realistic’ Rangnick on Utd’s UCL chances

Manchester United host Chelsea in the Premier League this evening and can move within three points of the top four if they beat Thomas Tuchel’s men. The Red Devils still have an outside chance of finishing in the Champions League spots, but they will need to win most of their remaining fixtures and hope that both Tottenham and Arsenal both drop points. Their defeat to the Gunners last Saturday was a huge setback for United’s top four hopes but they have the chance to immediately close the gap after tonight’s match was rescheduled from the 15th May due to Chelsea’s involvement in the FA Cup final.

Meanwhile, the Blues are looking to get their league form back on track after losing to Arsenal and scraping a win over West Ham in their two most recent league fixtures. Despite being touted as potential title winners before the season started Chelsea have dropped away from the leading two teams, Manchester City and Liverpool, yet hold a solid grip on third place – they are five points ahead of Arsenal having played one game less.

Chelsea will travel to Old Trafford with the knowledge that defender Antonio Rudiger is leaving the club at the end of the season. Rudiger was offered a new contract but was negotiating a higher fee as the club was hit with economic sanctions. Those sanctions meant Chelsea couldn’t increase their offer which is why the German is leaving.


Man Utd 1 – 1 Chelsea

80 mins: Off the woodwork! That would have been the icing on the cake for Reece James. He cuts inside from the right and rolls the ball onto his left-foot before curling an effort towards the far corner. De Gea is rooted to the spot as the ball curls back around and smacks into the post!

77 mins: Cristiano Ronaldo is played into the right side of the box and runs away from Thiago Silva. He’s got time to shoot and laces an effort at goal that Edouard Mendy does well to keep out.

Ralf Rangnick makes a couple of changes and takes of Rashford and Matic to bring on Juan Mata and Phil Jones.

74 mins: Jorginho seems to be in a bit of bother. Fernandes bundles into him and the Italian has seemingly injured his knee. He gets a bit of treatment on the pitch and gets back to his feet. Doesn’t look too serious.

65 mins: Matic and James get into a tussle at the byline and Matic stands on James in his follow through. James isn’t happy and the pair square up but nothing further comes from it.

Chelsea win a corner but it’s dealt with by United.

GOAL! Man Utd 1 – 1 Chelsea (Ronaldo, 62’)⚽️

62 mins: Where has this come from? A Chelsea throw in comes to N’Golo Kante but his pass up the pitch is intercepted. United feed it to Nemanja Matic who attempts to thread it through the lines. The pass is stopped but bounces back to the Man Utd midfielder. This time he dinks it over the back line, perfectly playing Cristiano Ronaldo into the box and the forward does the rest. United back on level terms!

GOAL! Man Utd 0 – 1 Chelsea (Alonso, 60’)⚽️

60 mins: There’s the opener! It has been coming for Chelsea. The Blues persist down the right wing and Reece James flicks the ball into the penalty area. It’s a little bit behind Kai Havertz who manages to head it on to Marcos Alonso and the left back drills it into the back of the net!

57 mins: Man Utd are just seeing a bit of space open up when they fly forward on the counter-attack. Thiago Silva has been brilliantly in sweeping up loose balls but the pace of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Elanga could be vital to United.

54 mins: Cesar Azpilicueta wins the ball high up the pitch and rolls it over to Reece James. James slides a pass into the penalty area where Mount collects the ball and fizzes it into the six-yard box. Timo Werner throws himself at the pass but it flies past him and he can’t turn it into the back of the net.
