Manchester United player ratings: Mason Greenwood good vs Brighton

2 min read

Dean Henderson

New status and new nerves. Made some good stops but flapped at corners and Brighton seemed to target him. Calmer in the second-half. 6

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Talking of targeting, Brighton scored against United again by delivering towards the far post, where Danny Welbeck caught Wan-Bissaka napping. 5

Victor Lindelof

On the topic of napping, Lindelof was unaware of Welbeck when he met the cross to eventually score. Exposed for Welbeck’s non-penalty incident. 5

Harry Maguire

Tried to rouse teammates and key block at 1-0 before half-time. Maybe fortunate to get away with challenge on Welbeck but did it cutely. 6

Luke Shaw

So poor in the first-half his manager was on his case. More of a threat after the pause and played a key role in the winning goal. 6

Fred

Endeavoured but rarely excelled in the first-half. Improved in the second and reflects well on his character he recovered so quickly after the Leicester horror show. 7

Paul Pogba

Struggled to get going on his first Premier League start in nearly two months and played Fred into trouble for Brighton’s opener. Unwittingly assisted Mason Greenwood. 6

Mason Greenwood

His fierce right-footed shot smacked the post but Greenwood persisted and his manager will have loved the scruffy manner of his winner. 7

Bruno Fernandes

Has looked out of sorts for a while and the first-half against Brighton might have been the nadir. Still tallied his 14th assist of the season. 6

Marcus Rashford

If there was sufficient competition then Rashford would be droppable. Disobeyed instructions at times but eventually turned up with the equaliser. Came off with an injury. 5

Edinson Cavani

Looked like someone who had started in one of the previous 10 games and does not particularly look like he is keen to stay. 3

Subs

Daniel James

Tired Brighton with his running. 6

Donny van de Beek

Had little time to do much. 5

Scott McTominay

Came on to protect lead. 5

Manager

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Did not make a proactive substitution early enough but perseverance prevailed, albeit rather fortuitously. 6
