On Sunday, Manchester United defeated Arsenal 3-1, and Cristiano Ronaldo was caught on camera doing something during the game.
Cristiano Ronaldo was seen encouraging his teammates after Manchester United lost to Arsenal on Sunday.
United trounced Arsenal 3-1 in the Premier League over the weekend, due to goals from Antony and Marcus Rashford, but Mikel Arteta’s team did equalize in the 60th minute when Bukayo Saka leveled the score.
Ronaldo didn’t start the game, but he came on for Antony right before Saka scored against David de Gea. Erik ten Hag has only started Ronaldo once this season, in a 4-0 loss to Brentford, but he remains a prominent role in the dressing room.
That was demonstrated this week when a video of Ronaldo’s response to Arsenal’s equalizer on Sunday surfaced on social media. After conceding, United’s players appear devastated, but Ronaldo is seen rallying his teammates.

Ronaldo is seen clapping his teammates in response to Saka’s score, and he looks to yell “come on!”
Rashford’s first goal of the game gave United a one-goal lead just six minutes after Arsenal equalized. England forward then scored another to make it 3-1.
With Sunday’s victory, United has now won four straight Premier League games for the first time since April 2021.
Loved this from Cristiano Ronaldo after Arsenal equalised.
