Cristiano Ronaldo prevents goal in strange manner as Man Utd struggle vs Watford

Cristiano Ronaldo prevented a Manchester United goal in bizarre fashion as his rough patch of form continued against Watford.

The Red Devils club legend has found the back of the net just once in his last 10 games.

Prior to bagging against Brighton earlier this month, he was on his longest goal drought of his club career since 2009.

In fairness, in wasn't for a lack of trying at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon, as he had a goal ruled out for offside, a shot hit the post and would've scored had Bruno Fernandes played him in for an open goal.

However, Fernandes may have been getting his own back on his fellow Portugal international.

Earlier in the match Ronaldo had inadvertently blocked one of his shots which may have gone in otherwise.

Despite all of those chances, United were unable to find a goal as Premier League strugglers Watford secured a valuable point on their travels.

Ralf Rangnick was furious with his wasteful side as they suffered another disappointing result, albeit one which extended their unbeaten league run to eight games.

"Five massive chances in the first half, three in the second," fumed United's interim manager at full-time.

"Sometimes we were unlucky like when Cristiano Ronaldo hit the post but we had one on one opportunities. This is not luck, this is sharpness, efficiency and being clinical.

"It is [frustrating], we did everything [other] than scoring. Hard to take that result. We were in full control for almost the full game.

"Our job as coaches is to help the team to create enough chances. The number of clear chances we had today had to be enough to win a game like this."

Ronaldo stormed off the pitch for the umpteenth time following the draw, with his frustrations clear to see for all.
