Manchester United player ratings: Victor Lindelof and Marcus Rashford good

2 min read

David de Gea

Handled some straight but firm shots from Kenedy faultlessly. Confident night, even if he did not have a ‘proper’ save to make. 7

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Excellent composure in his own third that he should transmit to the final third more often. 7

Victor Lindelof

Fabulous pick-out for Marcus Rashford’s goal and bailed out Harry Maguire when he was beaten by Yangel Herrera. 8

Harry Maguire

A largely serene night alongside Lindelof, save one transgression. Showed adventure in the final third a couple of times. 7

Luke Shaw

Maintained his consistent performance level but booked and suspended for the second leg. Substituted at half-time. 6

Scott McTominay

Shielded the back four next to Paul Pogba and then Nemanja Matic. Also banned for next week’s return leg. 6

Paul Pogba

Seemed inhibited by his early yellow card and the card-happy referee contributed to Pogba’s second-half removal. 6

Daniel James

Said it all he only ever looked a threat off the ball. Looked restricted again on the right wing and livelier on the left. 6

Bruno Fernandes

Whined too much in the first-half and never looked likely in the second until he won a penalty that he converted. 6

Marcus Rashford

Overcame apparent discomfort at the start to score superbly before coming off just past the hour. 7

Mason Greenwood

Still too raw to expertly lead the line. Often isolated and naive when he did get the ball and moved to the right to accommodate Edinson Cavani. 4

Subs

Alex Telles

Handy at dead ball situations and from open play. 7

Edinson Cavani

Finally played in the Europa League for United. More experienced than Greenwood. 6

Nemanja Matic

Harshly booked. 5

Donny van de Beek

Another cameo. 5

Manager

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Retaining Rashford was vindicated, ditto the clear-and-obvious back four even though Telles came on at the pause. 7
