Manchester United eased comfortably past Burnley tonight at Old Trafford in the Premier League. Here are our player ratings for the game.
(A score of 6 is around average.)
David de Gea 6 – Had little to do.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka 4.5 – Positionally poor as is often the case. Slack backpass gifted Burnley a corner in the 89th minue. Offered little going forward. Did not do enough to win his place back from Diogo Dalot.
Eric Bailly 6 – Quiet game for Bailly until the injury. Hopefully it won’t rule him out of AFCON.
Harry Maguire 4 – So easily passed for the goal. Why was he showing him inside?
Nemanja Matic 7 – Kept the defence protected well for the most part.
Scott McTominay 9 – Easily man of the match. Great goal, another that hit the woodwork, another saved with the fingertips … one of those “we really have got a world class player here” games. He rarely is able to do it consistently, but playing a few yards up the pitch definitely suits him.
Jadon Sancho 7 – Pretty much scored a goal – though it was by deflection an OG, and was reasonable today without really looking confident.
Edinson Cavani 7 – Didn’t have many chances but led the line well.
Cristiano Ronaldo 7 – The goal saved him because he had squandered some chances before that. Not at his best, but still pretty damn good.
Raphael Varane 6 – Didn’t influence the game much.
Diogo Dalot 6 – Did not really influence the game.
Fred 6 – Didn’t affect the game.
