Bruno Fernandes thanked Manchester United fans for their ‘unconditional support through good days and bad days’ following their 1-1 draw with Chelsea on Thursday night.

United slipped further away from the top four despite salvaging a point against the Blues, who missed a host of clear-cut chances to come away with all three at Old Trafford.

Marcos Alonso finally made their dominance count with a superb volley from close range on the hour mark, but two minutes later Cristiano Ronaldo went down the other end and rifled the ball past Edouard Mendy to instantly draw the hosts level.

While they were undoubtedly the happier of the two sides with the draw, Ralf Rangnick’s men are now five points adrift of the Champions League places having played two games more than Arsenal in fourth.

It has been a difficult season for United, who sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer back in November before replacing him with interim boss Rangnick.

And Fernandes, who drew criticism for missing a crucial penalty in last week’s 3-1 defeat away at Arsenal, took to Twitter after their draw with Chelsea to thank the club’s supporters.    

Along with a picture of himself at Old Trafford, the Portugal midfielder wrote: ‘Thank you for your unconditional support through good days and bad days.’

United were pulled out of trouble by Ronaldo once again on Thursday, with the 37-year-old registering his 17th Premier League goal of the season to rescue a point against Chelsea.

Ahead of Erik ten Hag’s arrival as head coach, many have questioned whether he will remain at the club beyond the end of the current season.

Yet Rangnick, who is expected to stay on in a consultancy role next term, said about his future: ‘This is something that we should speak between us. Erik and the board and myself. 

‘Cristiano has another year of contract, it is also important to see and find out what he wants to do, if he wants to stay.

‘But, again, I haven’t been able to speak with Erik so far and therefore, it doesn’t make sense to speak about that right now.

‘He also showed a good performance when Chelsea were in possession. He helped out a lot in the second-half defensively. 

‘I already told you in one of the press conferences a few weeks ago there has to be a focus on bringing in a couple of new strikers, this is for sure.’
