Manchester United have incredible record against Chelsea, but Cristiano Ronaldo hates facing them


Cristiano Ronaldo could well be one of the greatest goalscorers in football history, carved in stone, aging like fine wine and having a bank account that will make small countries wince.

However, that does mean that the Manchester United striker is not a mere mortal like the rest of us.

Chelsea are not one of Ronaldo’s favorite opponents

The 36-year-old is in excellent form after returning to Old Trafford for his second stint this summer – just the 12 years since leaving for Real Madrid.

In just 14 appearances, Ronaldo has scored 10 goals in all competitions – with six of those strikes securing United to take the lead in their Champions League group with just one game to play.

The Red Devils return to the Premier League on Sunday against Chelsea and Ronaldo will face off against the tightest defense in the Premier League, with Thomas Tuchel’s men having conceded just four times in 12 games so far this season.

To make matters worse for the Portuguese captain, he is in possession of a particularly dismal record against the Blues.

The 36-year-old scored a brilliant header in the 2008 Champions League final

Ronaldo has played for Chelsea 15 times during his playing career, winning just five times, with six losses and one draw in that span.

The striker has only scored once, although it was in the Champions League final in 2008. The Red Devils lifted the trophy in the soggy Luzhniki stadium, although Ronaldo missed his penalty. during the barrage.

He has also never scored against Chelsea in the Premier League and this is the team he has faced the most without ever scoring in top football.

Ronaldo managed to get two assists, in the 2005-06 and 2008-09 seasons, but he lost four of those ten Premier League games – one draw and three wins.

Can the former Real Madrid striker break his duck?

However, there is hope for Ronaldo and United. Chelsea are winless in seven games against the Red Devils and have kept their clean sheet in their last four meetings with the Londoners.

In their four previous trips to Stamford Bridge, United have won three and, despite the Blues leading the Premier League table, Michael Carrick will surely be supported.
