This Saturday, Manchester United made water again and was defeated 1-0 by Everton at Goodison Park. And as if that were not enough, Cristiano Ronaldo he had a furious day on Merseyside: he failed to make an impact on the game, he was frustrated and he ended up upset, cutting his left leg and getting into it with rival fans. As he was leaving the field of play, he got hot and threw his cell phone at a fan.
The Portuguese star ended the match with two cuts at the height of the shin guard, which was bloodied as a result of the injuries. After a series of situations in a totally adverse encounter and in the face of a discouraging scenario, he unloaded his anger on a poor fan.

In a video that went viral on social media, CR7 can be seen on his way to the tunnel while the Toffees fans jeered. That triggered his reaction: From one moment to the next, he threw a cell phone at a person. Look at the video.
This is how Cristiano reacted
At the beginning of the video and almost out of shot, you can see how Cristiano unleashes his anger when he saw that a fan was recording him walking discouraged with his bloody shin guard and a sharp pain in his leg.
This is how Cristiano’s leg was
Once the meeting was over, the Portuguese star grimaced in pain from a blow to his left legthat seems to have been the product of an involuntary brush in one of the last plays. They were 94 ‘when Alex Telles threw a center to the bulk in search of the tie. Pickford came out to cut with his fists and caught up with Ronaldo and one of his own defenders. Instantly, Cris felt an annoyance.
When he checked himself out, he realized that he had two severe cuts and that he was bleeding. How painful! The image quickly went viral on the networks and users were distressed by the present of the Portuguese, who is clearly not having a good time at United.

The rush of the Red Devils, emboldened by a Cristiano who missed the last league game due to illness after qualifying for the World Cup in Qatar with Portugal, was not enough. Marcus Rashford enjoyed two very good chances in the opening 15′, but Jordan Pickford was perfect, with two saves that spelled the grave for United.
In the first one that Frank Lampard’s men had, the goal came. A ball bounced off the edge of the area that young Gordon hooked, touched Harry and changed David de Gea’s trajectory. The ball went in and the three points would stay at Goodison Park.

United tried in the second half, with Bruno Fernandes, Cristiano, Jadon Sancho and Paul Pogba charging their attacks on Pickford’s goal. There was no way. Everton’s second was even closer, but De Gea, once again, prevented misfortune from being greater.
Pickford, however, in stoppage time, avoided the 1-1 with a save on Cristiano. In addition, United lost Fred to injury, who had to leave with a muscle problem half an hour into the game.

With this result, United remain seventh, with 51 points, three behind the Champions League, but with one game more than Tottenham Hotspur. Ralf Rangnick’s men have seven games left to try to enter the top continental competition.
Everton, who had just lost a direct duel against Burnley, increased their advantage to four points with relegation, although they have one more game than the Clarets.
