Player ratings: Partizan Belgrade 0-1 Manchester United

by Leo Nieboer

Sergio Romero 6 – Made a very important save on 85 minutes from a close-range bullet header. Did not have much else to worry about.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka 6 – Held firm on the right hand side of a back three, using the ball well, although his attacking prowess was limited.

Phil Jones 5 – An uneasy performance to watch. The Englishman seemed panicky, hooking rather than caressing the ball. He did make a couple of important interceptions towards the end.

Harry Maguire 7 – Proper captain’s performance. Plays at a level higher than the rest of his teammates. A class defender.

Marcos Rojo 6 – Similar to Jones in his chaotic nature but looked more useful on the ball, working well with Williams.

Brandon Williams 7 – Another impressive run out for the academy player. Played with composure. His run in the leadup to United’s penalty was wonderfully direct.

James Garner 6 – Occasionally looked a bit overwhelmed under pressure but did his job, moving the ball smartly and winning loose balls.

Scott McTominay 5 – Played a senior role in midfield, putting himself about with abandon, but lacked any sense of direction in possession.

Juan Mata 6 – The Spaniard’s ball in the leadup to the penalty was top class, but his involvement in the game overall was sporadic at best.

Jesse Lingard 5 – A few encouraging moments on the ball but, much like Martial, clearly very rusty. Faded as the game went on.

Anthony Martial 6 – Certainly looked rusty on his first start since August, but returned in ideal fashion by scoring from the spot.
