Manchester United won an uninspiring game against Granada 2-0 tonight in the first leg of the Europa League quarter final in Spain. Here are our player ratings for the game:
(A score of 6 is around average.)
David de Gea 6 – Had little to do and looked unsafe when ball rattled the post in the first half.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka 7 – Did quite well and worked hard without really producing much going forward.
Victor Lindelof 8 – Superb assist for the goal and defended well generally. A good game from Victor.
Harry Maguire 6 – Average performance from Maguire. Picked up a yellow that rules him out of the return leg.
Luke Shaw 6 – Was quiet in the first half and perhaps should have been rested from the start. A wasted substitution.
Scott McTominay 7 – Did well enough, a workmanlike performance without really doing much of note.
Paul Pogba 6 – What a frustrating player Pogba is. World class in one game, anonymous in the next. This was the next.
Dan James 4 – Why is this player still being given opportunities? To say he’s bang average is probably a compliment.
Bruno Fernandes 7 – Still looking tired, still struggling for form but still scoring goals. A true talisman.
Marcus Rashford 8 – What a hero he is in so many respects. Clearly not 100% but produced the goods and won the game for United.
Mason Greenwood 7 – Made lots of good runs that weren’t spotted by his teammates, but also dwelled on the ball too much when in possession.
Alex Telles 7 – Did well, put in some cracking whipped crosses and did nothing wrong defensively. A good performance.
Edinson Cavani 6 – Didn’t really influence the game much.
Nemanja Matic 5 – Seemed to invite pressure and lost possession easily. Not a good substitution.
Donny van de Beek 6 – Did not have time to influence the game.
