Player ratings: Manchester United 1-1 Liverpool

by Leo Nieboer

David de Gea 6 – Helpless from Adam Lallana’s goal and had very little else to deal with aside from that.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka 7 – Deployed on the right of a back five and did his job superbly, maintaining the right position and holding the ball very well.

Victor Lindelof 5 – Was lucky to have VAR save him from a weak aerial challenge in the first half and occasionally struggled with Divock Origi. Once again too timid at the near post for Liverpool’s equaliser.

Harry Maguire 7 – Commanding from start to finish at the base of defence. United’s overall assurance at the back has improved since he arrived.

Marcos Rojo 6.5 – Sometimes a bit too rash with his decision making, but my goodness, what wonderful lack of regard for one’s physical health. Threw himself at everything.

Ashley Young 7 – Often a maligned player but was spot on today, just like in the 2-1 win over Liverpool in March 2018. His outside pass in behind for Rashford caused problems.

Scott McTominay 6 – Battled well at the base of midfield for the most part, but his passing was slightly off.

Fred 6 – Once again looked dubious in possession, as if still unsure of himself, but his work ethic was superb throughout.

Andreas Pereira 7 – The No.10 role is definitely where the Brazilian thrives the most. Excellent spring to his running and always looked for the ball in behind.

Daniel James 7 – In the white heat of such a huge game, the 21-year-old’s touch at close quarters was better than any other attacker. Very impressive.

Marcus Rashford 7 – A total contrast to the fatigued, meek figure which we saw against Newcastle United. Played with real presence and scored a classic striker’s goal. Big game player.
