Man United player ratings: Axel Tuanzebe and Wan-Bissaka brilliant vs PSG

2 min read

David de Gea

Made a good save from Layvin Kurzawa and came out to thwart Angel di Maria. Pulled off a great stop from Kylian Mbappe. 9

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Not as adventurous as he was at Newcastle, which was understandable with Mbappe roaming down the left-hand channel. Executed some fine tackles. 9

Victor Lindelof

Defended with authority as the most senior centre half in the back three. Positioned himself well to clear the ball expertly. 8

Axel Tuanzebe

Will have grown a foot taller after he challenged Mbappe in a tight duel inside the area. Fantastic return on his first appearance in 10 months. 9

Luke Shaw

Settled well back into the defensive trident and played the ball into Anthony Martial to earn the penalty. Brought the ball out of defence to spark attacks. 7

Alex Telles

United have a full-back who acts like a winger and Telles also appears to be adept at corners. A fine debut that ended just after the hour. 7

Scott McTominay

Aggressive and energetic enough to deny Mbappe and Neymar space outside the area. Booked in the first-half but kept his cool. 8

Fred

Just as pugnacious as McTominay and left one on Di Maria to set the tempo. Pressed high and was a superb conduit between defence and attack. 8

Bruno Fernandes

Had the bottle to step up a second time from the spot and put United 1-0 up. Was too wasteful at times in the second-half and could have come off. 6

Marcus Rashford

Looked a threat whenever United ventured forward but cocked up key chances at 1-0 and 1-1 when PSG were wide open. Then atoned with the winner. 7

Anthony Martial

Had PSG on tenterhooks whenever he got the ball and won the penalty but badly miscued a header to put through his own net. 6

Subs

Paul Pogba

Brought about a momentum swing and offered more creativity in attack. Assisted Rashford. 7

Daniel James

Ran about. 6

Donny van de Beek

Kept things cool. 6

Manager

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Got his tactics spot on and the contentious selections were completely vindicated. Made a bold tactical change with the introduction of Pogba. 9
