Manchester United player ratings: Shaw exceptional and Wan-Bissaka good

2 min read

David de Gea

Solid stop from James Ward-Prowse. Other than that, he was a spectator amid the one-way traffic. 7

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Probably the best attacking display of his United career. Effectively played as a winger, scoring and creating. 8

Victor Lindelof

Little to no issues whatsoever on a quiet night for United’s centre halves. Played consecutive league games for the first time since Boxing Day. 7

Harry Maguire

Maintained the intensity and focus through his vocal leadership as United refused to let up. 7

Luke Shaw

Another exceptional performance. Created two goals and Southampton could not contain him. So vital to United he was substituted at half-time. 9

Scott McTominay

Recovered from the awful early challenge by Alexandre Jankewitz and kept things ticking along. Scored superbly. 8

Fred

Forward-thinking with his passing and moved to left-back for the second-half to accommodate Donny van de Beek but was no Roberto Carlos. 6

Mason Greenwood

Assisted Rashford cleverly and completed 90 minutes in the league for only the second time this season. 7

Bruno Fernandes

Strangely played the whole game even though it was over before the half-time shrill. Scored a penalty. 7

Marcus Rashford

Bungled a chance from the restart after the red card but atoned with his 16th goal of the season. Substituted on the hour. 7

Edinson Cavani

A fine focal point and scored with an expert header. Will not have liked coming off at half-time but that’s a reflection of his importance. 8

Subs

Donny van de Beek

Did not quicken the pace and got booked. 5

Anthony Martial

Vindicated introduction with a well-taken goal but missed a great chance. Then scored again. 8

Daniel James

Got the ninth. 7

Manager

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Made one change that was questionable for all of 77 seconds. Resting Shaw at the pause was understandable and Martial came on to score. 8
