10-man Manchester United committed football suicide and lost 2-1 against Bern side Young Boys this afternoon. Here are our player ratings for the game:
(A score of 6 is around average.)
David de Gea 8 – Made a couple of good saves, one at the death to keep United in the game … or so we thought.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka 5 – A harsh sending off. There seemed little intent even though his studs were showing.
Victor Lindelof 6 – Did little wrong. Brought some light comedy relief with that kicking action after the head injury.
Harry Maguire 4.5 – Must take some responsibility for the first goal. A shaky performance.
Luke Shaw 6 – Not one of Luke’s best showings.
Fred 6.5 – Poor in first half but improved in the second.
Donny van de Beek 8 – Arguably United’s best player in the first half and can consider himself very unlucky to be subbed.
Jadon Sancho 4 – Still struggling to adapt. Very poor.
Bruno Fernandes 8 – A great bit of skill for United’s goal and looked classy.
Paul Pogba 5 – Anonymous from the Frenchman.
Cristiano Ronaldo 7.5 – Another good goal from the GOAT. Wasn’t impressed to be subbed.
Diogo Dalot 6.5 – Did OK.
Raphael Varane 6 – Can’t blame him for the first goal, but could also have done better.
Nemanja Matic 6 -Did not make much of an impact.
Jesse Lingard 2 – Blatantly cost United the game with a horror pass in the dying seconds.
Anthony Martial 6 -Did not make much of an impact.
