Cristiano Ronaldo has called on Manchester United to bounce back from their defeat by Aston Villa and arrest their slide by showing their “true strength”.
The Red Devils suffered their third loss in four games as Villa defender Kortney Hause scored a late winner at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.
Bruno Fernandes had the chance to equalise from the penalty spot in added time, moments after Hause’s header, but fired his effort high over the bar.
Ronaldo, meanwhile, did not register a shot on target as he failed to score in a match for the first time since he returned to United this summer.
While the Portugal captain has been in fine form for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, results have not matched his performances.
United were beaten 2-1 by Swiss minnows Young Boys in the Champions League and they crashed out of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday with a 1-0 loss to West Ham.
