This is not the first-time Ronaldo has stormed down the tunnel – having previously left the pitch in frustration following United’s 1-1 draw against Everton.
Ronaldo had been dropped to bench for the game and watched on as Anthony Martial provided the opening goal of the game.
However, United struggled to find a winner after Andros Townsend scored a second half equaliser to end the game 1-1.

Manchester United’s fixture against Chelsea marked just the second time Ronaldo had not started in the Premier League this season.
Speaking about this team selection before the game, Carrick said: ‘A few tweaks and changes from the other night, to change things up a bit.
‘Cristiano is probably our standout name, but it’s just game plan, ideas. I had a good chat with Cristiano actually, he was great, and we’ve decided to go like that today.’
Former United captain Roy Keane was left ‘surprised’ by Carrick’s decision, telling Sky Sports: ‘Ronaldo’s one of the great players. Carrick has a plan. Ronaldo’s come back to United to play these games.
Speaking ahead of the game with Chelsea, Carrick said he left him out due to his ‘game plan’
‘He’s a big player for the big occasions, his stats against Chelsea aren’t great but I’m surprised with the decision to leave him out.’
United fans were also shocked by the decision to start Ronaldo on the bench given the importance of the clash against the Premier League leaders going into the weekend.

@Tife-fabunmi added: ‘Ronaldo is not starting, Carrick is finished before he even started.’
