Player ratings: Man United 9-0 Southampton – Brilliant all-round performance

Manchester United hammered 10-man, and then 9-man, Southampton an incredible 9-0 this evening in the Premier League. Here are our player ratings for the game:

(A score of 6 is around average.)

David de Gea 7 – Pulled off a great save in the first half, otherwise didn’t have much to do. Was not at fault for the disallowed goal.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka 8 – A goal and a trademark spider-tackle at the other end, the right back is back to his best.

Victor Lindelof 7 – Played an excellent long pass in the buildup to the first goal and had a generally steady game.

Harry Maguire 5 – Maybe being picky, but even in a comfortable win like this he managed to get booked, let a goal through his legs (which was fortunately disallowed) and generally look like a division two player. Very good at pointing, though.

Luke Shaw 8 – World class performance in the first half, hope the substitution was not due to injury as he has become an important part of the team this season.

Scott McTominay 8 – A superb performance capped with an excellent goal.

Fred 8 – A typically energetic performance and also adapted well to life as a left back in the second half.

Mason Greenwood 8 – Two assists and a good performance from Greenwood.

Bruno Fernandes 8 – Going through a quiet patch at the moment but still influential and dangerous with everything he does. Assist and of course, a trademark penalty despite not being at his very best.

Marcus Rashford 8 – Decent stint from Rashford and a well-taken goal.

Edinson Cavani 8 – Great performance including a good goal. Hopefully he is not injured after that bad knock that saw him subbed at half time.


Anthony Martial 9 – Best performance in a long time. Took his goal well, was unlucky not to get a second with the dink past the keeper that grazed the post, won the penalty and generally worked hard to make an impact.

Donny van de Beek 7 – Showed some nice touches.

Dan James 7 – Even the whippet managed a goal. Awesome.

Edinson Cavani has made quite an impact since his deadline day arrival at Old Trafford, but how much do you know about our other South American players, past and present? Take our quiz below to find out!
