Man United player ratings vs West Brom: Rashford and Martial poor

2 min read

David de Gea

Got the finest of touches to tip Karlan Grant’s deflected effort wide. Made one of his classic toe saves from Conor Townsend seconds before United won a penalty. 8

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Non-existent in attack too often again despite the reticent approach from West Brom. Just does not do enough going forward. 5

Victor Lindelof

Did not appear to be hampered by his back problem and helped United to a clean sheet. 6

Harry Maguire

The only one who acted like a proper United player from start to finish and started the breakaway Anthony Martial should have finished. 6

Alex Telles

Took some time to adjust to the demands and there were some loose moments and his speculative shooting was awry. 6

Nemanja Matic

Suffered the ignominy of a nutmeg but did little wrong. The trouble was United did not needed two steely midfielders against the 18th-placed side. 5

Fred

Tidy enough with the ball and tried to get United on the attack but rarely played a memorable pass. 6

Juan Mata

Too passive too often in the first-half but his cross was handled and earned United a penalty. Made way for Cavani on the hour. 5

Bruno Fernandes

Set up Martial for an easy chance but became so frustrated he withdrew into a deeper role. Lucky not to have the penalty conceded stand and lucky he got to retake his saved spotkick. 6

Marcus Rashford

Rusty after coming back from injury and wasted a great opportunity to all but kill the game in the second-half. 4

Anthony Martial

Had an early header saved before he squandered a gilt-edged chance soon after. Was going through the motions at times. 5

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Overestimated West Brom by starting Matic with Fred and should have made a change at half-time. Cavani for Mata was an adventurous move. 6
