Manchester United won convincingly this evening against Spurs in London. Here are our player ratings for the game.
(A score of 6 is around average.)
David de Gea 6 – Had little to do, so impressive was his defence. Or was it so bad were Spurs? Who cares.
Victor Lindelof 7.5 – Flawless in the new back three.
Raphael Varane 8 – Brought a calmness and authority to the previously flailing defence. Excellent performance.
Harry Maguire 7 – No mistakes from Maguire and looking far better in a back three.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka 6 – Performed well defensively but offered little going forward, not really a wing back.
Scott McTominay 7 – Good outing for Scott. The formation seemed to suit him.
Fred 7 – Probably the best 90 for the Brazilian this season. Nothing earth shattering, but like McTominay, seemed safer in the 3-5-2.
Luke Shaw 6 – Similar to Wan-Bissaka – good defensively but disappointing going forward.
Bruno Fernandes 9 – Superb from Fernandes. His contributions to both goals were world class. A huge reason United won this game and that Solskjaer still has a job.
Edinson Cavani 8.5 – Classy and hard-working performance from the Uruguayan. Took his goal brilliantly. Hopefully he is not badly injured.
Cristiano Ronaldo 9 – Brilliant. Took first goal superbly and a piece of brilliance made the second for Cavani.
Marcus Rashford 8 – Came on and scored – what more could you want?
Nemanja Matic 7.5 – Added some grit to the midfield and provided a lovely assist for Rashford.
Jesse Lingard 6 – Didn’t really influence the game much.
