LA Galaxy 2-5 Manchester United: Player Ratings

by Sam Peoples

First half 

David de Gea 7 – De Gea may as well have stayed in bed for this one.

Antonio Valencia 7 – Somebody tell Valencia this is a pre-season game. He was a machine on the right as always.

Phil Jones 6.5 – Made a decent block when LA Galaxy had their only chance with a 2-on-2.

Chris Smalling 6 – Not involved too much really, LA Galaxy offered pretty much nothing going forward.

Daley Blind 6 – Felt like he hardly had the ball at all in that half?

Marouane Fellaini 7 – Scored with a decent finish. Bit Fellaini at times but he always is I suppose. Decent enough, potentially being too harsh.

Ander Herrera 6.5 – Crisp passing and movement in midfield with the other two. Kept the ball moving quickly.

Jesse Lingard 7.5 – Two assists from him in a 45 minutes where he played as a left wing-back. Not bad at all Jesse. Well played.

Juan Mata 7 – Ah he’s great to watch play isn’t he? Like the Roger Federer of football, just an artist when he’s given the time and space to create.

Marcus Rashford 8 – Tell you what, Rashford looked great. Clinical finishing from him, two goals in two chances in the first 15 minutes.

Second half

J. Pereira –

Timothy Fosu-Mensah 7 – Great run and assist from Fosu-Mensah for Martial’s goal. Decent performance.

Axel Tuanzebe 7 – He’s calm isn’t he? Got a lot of time for Tuanzebe, I really do.

Victor Lindelof 7 – Think he could have done a bit better for LA Galaxy’s first goal, could have scored himself too.  

Eric Bailly 7 – I love Bailly, a real soft spot for him. Alongside Lindelof, think he’s going to be ace.

Matteo Darmian 7 – Not much to say about Darmian here, was hardly involved. 

Paul Pogba – Captain fantastic. Mate, he is going to be so good this season. That pass to Fosu-Mensah for his assist to Martial? Unreal. He’s going to be our best player this season, mark my words.

Andreas Pereira Played as a deep lying midfielder and I tell you what, he played well. Lots of quick passing from him.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan 7.5 – How is he faster with the ball than without it? No, seriously.

Anthony Martial 8 – That was Martial. That’s what we want to see – him running at a defence at pace. Love it. Wanted the ball, wanted to shoot all the time.

Romelu Lukaku 6 – Muted debut from the big man. Some wayward shots but once that first goal rolls in his confidence will grow.
