Manchester United secured a 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid this evening in the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16. Here are our player ratings for the game.
(A score of 6 is around average.)
David de Gea 6 – Had a quiet game other than picking the ball out of the net.
Victor Lindelof 7 – Thought he did OK on an unusual role, but it wasn’t natural in possession.
Raphael Varane 7 – Did little wrong.
Harry Maguire 4 – Lost Felix for the goal, gave the ball away too often … poor.
Luke Shaw 5 – A lazy performance.
Fred 4 – Outplayed and outclassed for much of the game.
Paul Pogba 2 – Horrible performance from Pogba. One good pass to Bruno in the second half, everything else was a train wreck. Was even knocked off the ball easily, which is normally one of his greatest strengths.
Bruno Fernandes 6.5 – Poor for the most part, but then gets an assist. You just can’t stop this guy even when he’s playing badly.
Marcus Rashford 2 – Confidence rock bottom, body language all wrong, a sad outing for Rashford.
Cristiano Ronaldo 6 – Didn’t do much, but didn’t get much service.
Jadon Sancho 7.5 – One of United’s better players, but that’s not saying much.
Nemanja Matic 7 – Added grit and steel, helped turn the game.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka 6 – Did OK.
Alex Telles 6.5 – Did OK. Lovely move in injury time.
Anthony Elanga 8 – What a sub performance. Not just the goal, but the overall menace.
Jesse Lingard 6 – Did not influence the game much.
