Manchester United player ratings: Paul Pogba and Eric Bailly good

2 min read

David de Gea

Had little to deal with as Burnley did not manage an attempt on target all night. Encouraged teammates. 6

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Vulnerable again from crosses aimed towards the far post but Burnley rarely troubled United. 6

Eric Bailly

Blocked well from a Chris Wood strike at 0-0 and barely put a foot wrong all night. Reaffirmed he is the best partner for Harry Maguire. 8

Harry Maguire

Unfortunate to have a goal disallowed, defended superbly and led impeccably as United strived to score a winner. 8

Luke Shaw

Fortunate to stay on with his follow-through tackle but otherwise produced a reasonable performance. 6

Paul Pogba

Did not express himself enough among the artisans in the first-half but grabbed the game by the lapels in the second and scored. 8

Nemanja Matic

Played Anthony Martial in for a good chance and hardly ever gave the ball away. United’s play mirrored Matic’s patience. 7

Marcus Rashford

His final product was lacking most of the time until he picked out Pogba for the winner. Eventually substituted for Mason Greenwood. 6

Anthony Martial

Shot over with his first opening and tested Nick Pope with his second strike. A much improved showing after the derby. 7

Bruno Fernandes

Ceded possession and Burnley almost capitalised in the first-half. Looked jaded and United at least had Pogba to turn to. 5

Edinson Cavani

Had an on-running battle with Ben Mee and James Tarkowski and was subjected to a crude tackle from Robbie Brady. Missed some good chances but his movement gave United options. 7

Subs

Mason Greenwood

Energised the attack. 6

Scott McTominay

Helped shore things up. 6

Axel Tuanzebe

Came on late. N/A

Manager

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Selected a physical side to counter Burnley and one of those selected scored the winner. Patient in resisting a change until after the goal. 8
