Ralph Rangnik has his cards close to his chest about whether Cristiano Ronaldo will be right back in the Manchester United Starting XI for the trip to everton this weekend.

The Red Devils trade Manchester for Merseyside in a big clash for both sides and their respective Champions League qualification or First League hopes of survival. United go into the duel after a disappointing home game Leicester City most recently ended in a 1-1 draw.

Ronaldo missed the game against the Foxes through illness and his absence was felt badly by a United side who had no clear direction for the future. Bruno Fernandes was used in a role similar to his Portugal teammate would normally be, but wouldn’t make the grade.

Rangnick has since confirmed Ronaldo is fit for Goodison Park but has not confirmed if the 37-year-old has played five times Ballon d’Or Winner would start against the Toffees from the start. It was also a somber fitness update for full-back Luke Shaw following his injury last weekend.

“I also think Ronaldo wasn’t playing when they saw Ronaldo not playing,” said Ferguson, who was interrupted by Nurmagomedov, who said: “He came on as a second-half substitute.” The legendary former United manager replied: “I know, but you should always start with your best players.”

Solskjaer was out of work less than two months later and while Rangnick’s tenure is likely to end at the end of the season, he will know Ronaldo’s start is sure to boost United’s faint hopes of qualifying for the Champions League, having admitted that there is no margin for error .
