A wonderful strike from Cristiano Ronaldo salvaged a 1-1 draw for Manchester United against a dominant Chelsea at Old Trafford – but the result means United can only now equal their worst-ever points total in the Premier League era.

That decline was plain to see during a first half which featured protests against the Glazers’ ownership and a United team badly exposed on their own patch by visitors who should have made more of the chances afforded to them.

With just a Two minutes interval, Ronaldo responded from a wonderful lofted pass from Nemanja Matic played in the forward, who produced a fine touch and hit to smash in his first goal against Chelsea. He’s now scored eight of United’s last nine Premier League goals – a strong rebuke to his critics.

The goal ignited the home fans and suddenly there was fight from the players in red – but the visitors continued to pile forwards and only the woodwork denied James what would have been a fine winner late on.

Marcos Alonso fires his volley into the net to give Chelsea the lead after an hour at Old Trafford.

Just two minutes after Chelsea had gone in front, Cristiano Ronaldo smashes in Manchester United’s equalizer.

Chelsea’s club-record winning streak away from home ends at eight but they only need seven points from their remaining five games to seal a top-four spot.

Those Champions League places are a long way off for United, though, who trail Arsenal by five points having played two games more – and United will now be unable to surpass the meagre 64 points they achieved in 2013/14.
