Player ratings: Bournemouth 1-0 Manchester United

Player ratings: Bournemouth 1-0 Manchester United

David de Gea 6 – Pulled off a good save to keep it at 1-0 but was otherwise untroubled by Bournemouth.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka 6 – Tough to be harsh with him because he defended well all game but he was the one that allowed Joshua King so much time for the opener. Should’ve never been in a centre-back position in the first place though.

Victor Lindelof 5 – Everyone knows aerial duels are his weakness but he was poor in other departments as well. Tough to think about what else he brings other than ball-playing.

Harry Maguire 5 – It’s safe to say fans haven’t seen him anywhere near his best with something not looking quite right with him this season. Left Wan-Bissaka to deal with King.

Ashley Young 5 – Didn’t offer much going forward and was caught out at the back at times too. Strange he started given Brandon Williams’ good form.

Daniel James 6 – Was central to the bright start Manchester United had but couldn’t make a real impact afterwards as everyone struggled.

Scott McTominay 5 – Was his usual solid self but matches like this require more creativity wise which he lacked this time around. Was also wasteful with possession.

Fred 6 – Pieces of promising play and other moments were frustrating. Needs to do more if he wants to prove United don’t need Paul Pogba.

Andreas Pereira 4 – It was the perfect game for a number 10 to grab the game by the scruff of the neck and win it but unfortunately was poor. Proof United need a quality attacking-midfielder in January.

Anthony Martial 6 – Was also part of why the Red Devils started brightly but was later isolated and couldn’t affect the game as much as he’d like.

Marcus Rashford 6 – Hardly had many chances to run at Bournemouth’s defence simply because of how deep their backline was.
