is Cristiano Ronaldo playing tonight?

  • Sports

UPDATED: Cristiano Ronaldo is not a member of the Manchester United team that is traveling to Fulham, and he is predicted to be ill and unable to play in the Premier League match.

The star player for Manchester United has had a hit-and-miss season thus far, so his absence from this critical match just days before the FIFA World Cup will be regrettable.

Manchester United will play against Fulham in rapid succession on this occasion. The weekend before, they went to Villa Park in the Premier League and lost 3-1 to Unai Emery’s team.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s participation for Portugal in Qatar, however, is certain because Erik ten Hag said it was only a minor illness. In fact, when questioned about the Portuguese star’s availability for the Fulham match after the Carabao Cup match against Aston Villa, Ten Hag responded as follows:

In the defeat to Aston Villa, Cristiano Ronaldo started up front for Manchester United. He played the entire 90 minutes while leading the team. However, Ronaldo was unable to score for Erik ten Hag’s team as they suffered their fourth league loss of the year.

Ronaldo might still start for the Red Devils in the Carabao Cup despite a lackluster showing. Jadon Sancho and Antony might still be out for United as they both recuperate from their ailments.

But now that he is fully healthy again, Anthony Martial could play alongside Ronaldo, Marcus Rashford, or Alejandro Garnacho against Aston Villa.
