Yet, just two minutes later, a cute ball over the top from former Blue Nemanja Matic found Ronaldo, who fired his finish into the net after a fine first touch.
Only Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has scored more Premier League goals than the no.7 this season.
Ronaldo's tally of 17 is the same as Tottenham star Heung-min Son in joint-second place in the chart of the leading marksmen.
The 37-year-old shows no sign of losing his goalscoring touch. He has now netted 23 goals in all competitions this season – the same tally he managed when he was 23 years old, in the 2006-07 season.
Of course, Ronaldo did manage to score one famous goal against Chelsea - in the 2008 Champions League final, when he rose to head in Wes Brown's right-wing cross. That night in Moscow would end in glory, following a penalty shoot-out.
The Portugal international has also managed a couple of assists in the past against the capital club.
