Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo was absent from Manchester United’s Carrington training base on Saturday ahead of Sunday’s Premier League game against Fulham.

The 37-year-old, who has scored just three goals so far this season, missed Thursday night’s Carabao Cup 4-2 win over Aston Villa through illness.

We believe Ronaldo is yet to recover from the illness that kept him out of the game against Aston Villa on Thursday night.

Issuing an update on Ronaldo after the win over Villa, manager Erik ten Hag said: “I can’t guarantee that now [that he will return at Fulham] but he was ill today, he can recover from that.

“It’s not a really serious illness that takes days or weeks, so I think it’s possible he will be available for Sunday and in the squad.”
