Manchester United player ratings: Scott McTominay and Alex Telles good

2 min read

Dean Henderson

Was like Fabien Barthez at times; getting involved when he did not need to. Injured Eric Bailly. 6

Brandon Williams

Aggressive on only his second start at right-back and will have to improve if he is to switch to that side permanently. 6

Axel Tuanzebe

Solid next to Eric Bailly and then Harry Maguire as United kept a clean sheet. Booked for kicking the ball away. 7

Eric Bailly

Often his own worst enemy with getting injured but just unlucky when Henderson collided into him. Forced off just before half-time. 6

Alex Telles

A threat in attack, where he assisted Scott McTominay from one corner and almost provided another goal for Bailly. 7

Scott McTominay

Fine header to put United 1-0 up and adept at heading in his own box as United briefly coped without Bailly. 7

Donny van de Beek

Eager to get the ball and provided a lovely lay-off for Juan Mata that the Spaniard squandered. Not involved as much as he should have been. 6

Juan Mata

Should have scored from Van de Beek’s flick in a one-on-one, which would have made it more comfortable for United. 6

Jesse Lingard

Some nice touches and his movement with Mata was key during United’s best attacking periods but difficult to remember a standout contribution. Made way for Nemanja Matic. 5

Daniel James

Started really well and drew a save from Daniel Bachmann but faded and reverted to headless chicken mode. Substituted. 5

Mason Greenwood

Not involved enough for a centre forward. Moved around to try and link up with the forwards but under-par again. 4

Subs

Harry Maguire

A calming influence. 7

Marcus Rashford

Should have ended the contest. Greedy at times. 6

Anthony Martial

Never warmed up. 5

Nemanja Matic

Disciplined. 6

Manager

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Sensibly rotated the side and fair in giving chances to fringe players, some who let him down. Had to make changes. 6
