David de Gea 7- Wasn’t called into action frequently but when he was, he was as reassured as ever. If Manchester United are to have a good season, he’ll have to be in fine form again.
Luke Shaw 7- Solid display from the youngster. Good enough defensively and didn’t offer that much going forward until he scored his first senior goal. Plenty to be confident about.
Eric Bailly 7- Arguably the best defender on the day. Covered Lindelof whenever he looked exposed and consistently shut down Leicester City’s attacks.
Andreas Pereira 7- Calm and silky in possession. A little rash in his defensive midfield role but clear to see he’s growing into it well.
Paul Pogba 8- Easily the man of the match and Manchester United’s best performer. Slotted the penalty away with ease and dictated play excellently. A little flashy at times.
Fred 6- Decent enough debut from the Brazilian. Technical skill was on display but was a little loose with possession at times. Can build on it all.
Juan Mata 7- United’s little magician was another one guilty of losing possession often but never gave up. Got the assist for Shaw’s goal.
Alexis Sanchez 6- Worked tirelessly but gave away the ball far too often. Can do better.
Marcus Rashford 6- Was often isolated but energetically lead the line for United. Has to do better if he wants to win Romelu Lukaku’s spot.
