Manchester United scraped an unconvincing 1-0 win against Aston Villa this evening at at Old Trafford in the FA Cup. Here are our player ratings for the game.
(A score of 6 is around average.)
David de Gea 7 – Was under pressure more than he should have been and pulled out some good saves.
Diogo Dalot 7 – Not a perfect performance from the Portuguese but did well enough for the most part.
Victor Lindelof 3 – Mistake in the first half almost cost United a goal. More mistakes in the second … a poor performance from the Swede.
Raphael Varane 6 – A couple of classy moments and cool interceptions, but also some hesitation. Fair to say he’s still feeling his way in the English game.
Luke Shaw 6 – Did some good things and some bad things today. Mostly poor going forward but not too bad defensively.
Scott McTominay 8.5 – Another great performance from Scott. Well-taken goal and all-round commanding stuff. Really seems to be relishing life under Ralf. Man-of-the-match from us.
Fred 5.5 – The usual wonderful work rate and an assist on the goal, but his passing and distribution is just not good enough right now.
Mason Greenwood 6 – Some excellent work but just too greedy at times. On one or two good breaks we just needed him to square it, but he took the shot.
Bruno Fernandes 6.5 – Not much happened for Bruno again, but still managed to create some chances and worked hard.
Edinson Cavani 8 – Superb, selfless performance from Edi. Worked his socks off.
Marcus Rashford 1 – That was just about as poor a wing performance as you are likely to see in a Man United shirt. Horrible body language too. What is going on with him’
Donny van de Beek 6.5 – Looked neat and tidy and offered the kind of control that was badly lacking.
Jesse Lingard 6 – Did OK, tried hard.
Anthony Elanga 7 – Exciting pace and made some things happen, but couldn’t quite manage a goal involvement. Promising.
