The game went into injury time after the second penalty shot was denied as his mood didn’t help.

Atkinson again hints of no spotkick after Kurt Zouma traps Ronaldo.

Decisions did not matter in the context of United’s victory when Jesse Lingard held the visitors 2-1 with 90 seconds remaining – only to miss a late penalty for Mark Noble.

But as Ronaldo has scored four goals in his three matches since returning to the Red Devils after 12 years, the Portuguese were desperate to continue their good start.

United fans were quick to support their star on social media and questioned Atkinson’s decisions.

‘UTDTrey’ wrote on Twitter: “Let’s say Ronaldo was robbed from 2 penalties today and he still has 4 goals in 3 matches. Unstoppable.”

‘iLatif_’ said: “Two Zouma fouls on Cristiano Ronaldo but he was not awarded. Two penalties for Manchester United smh.”

DillonMUFC said: “A clear campaign against Ronaldo! He should have been awarded at least two penalties in this game!”
