“Ole at it again” – some Man Utd fans are unhappy to see Ronaldo on the bench vs. Everton

Following their dramatic win over Villarreal in the Champions League earlier this week, Manchester United are back in Premier League action as they welcome Everton to Old Trafford for the third time this calendar year.

Last season’s affair between the two sides at the Theatre of Dreams ended in a 3-3 draw, with a last-minute equaliser from Dominic Calvert-Lewin gifting the visitors a point.

Calvert-Lewin is one of a few notable absentees for the Toffees, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also deciding to shuffle his pack for the final game before the second international break of the season.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored the winner in the 95th minute against Villarreal on Wednesday and the forward, despite scoring five goals in as many games since he returned to United, has been left on the bench – something supporters reacted to on social media.
