Cristiano Ronaldo was understandably frustrated with Manchester United’s defeat.
Ronaldo played every 90 minutes and didn’t score as United lost 4-2 to Leicester City.
At the final whistle, Ronaldo looked like a lost figure.

Ronaldo’s anger is easy to understand. United threw away a lead with a sloppy defense and conceded back after the 2-2 equalization.
The striker will also be frustrated with his own performance.
Ronaldo had a chance to double United’s early lead and his shot was blocked by Kasper Schmeichel. That would have put United 2-0 ahead before half-time, only to equalize Leicester shortly thereafter.
In the second half he had his best chance with a pass from Marcus Rashford, but could not stay on the side and then missed the shot.
Ronaldo wasn’t the biggest problem by any means, the defense and midfield were terrible, but that was the kind of game where there is just room for improvement everywhere.
More is expected of United and Ronaldo against Atalanta on Wednesday night.
