Here are our player ratings for United’s opening Carabao Cup match against Luton.
(A score of 6 is around average.)
Dean Henderson 8 – Didn’t have much to do, but a great save in the second half saved United’s bacon.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka 7 – Did well enough.
Harry Maguire 7 – Harry’s best match for weeks, didn’t do much wrong.
Brandon Williams 6 – Was good defensively, but offered nothing going forward.
Nemanja Matic 7 – A good, steady performance.
Fred 7 – An OK performance from the Brazilian – but would have liked to see a little more energy and penetration.
Juan Mata 6 – Didn’t do anything wrong but wasn’t exactly an inspiring performance from the Spaniard.
Donny van de Beek 8 – Was head and shoulders United’s best player whilst he was on the pitch.
Jesse Lingard 4 – Every time he puts in a sh-t performance you think that will be his last game in a United shirt. But he just keeps getting more chances. Ole must see something amazing in training to be so persistent.
Odion Ighalo 4 – Really provided nothing against inferior opposition.
Mason Greenwood 9 – Changed the game, unbelievable talent.
Bruno Fernandes 8 – Breath of fresh air.
Marcus Rashford 8 – Excellent sub performance and well-taken goal.
