Manchester United dominated but failed to score against Watford at Old Trafford this afternoon in the Premier League. Here are our player ratings for the game:
(A score of 6 is around average.)
David de Gea 6 – A spectator for most of this one thanks to some excellent defending.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka 6 – Worked hard but just doesn’t create enough threat going forward and still gets drawn inside when defending, leaving the winger with too much space. That one seems a simple one to fix but he never seems to be able to fix it.
Victor Lindelof 7.5 – Nice solid defending.
Raphael Varane 7.5 – Good solid defending. It’s only Watford, but these two are looking like the A Team right now.
Alex Telles 6 – Made a few errors but also put in some great crosses in the first half. Seemed to lose his way and was rightly subbed in the end.
Nemanja Matic 8.5 – Superb midfield performance from Matic. If only he was 10 years younger.
Fred/strong> 7.5 – Played well. Even some skill moves in there. Really looks good when allowed to take up more advanced positions.
Bruno Fernandes 7.5 – Superb football other than the woeful finishing.
Paul Pogba 6.5 – Not bad from Pogba but he is capable of so much more.
Anthony Elanga 8 – Looked dangerous every time he got the ball. Brimming with confidence.
Cristiano Ronaldo 3 – Where did the GOAT go? Embarrassingly bad. Even without Cavani fit, he has to be dropped.
Jadon Sancho 7 – Confident and lively but didn’t quite produce the magic.
Marcus Rashford 5 – Ineffective.
Luke Shaw 5 – Wasted his own time and was poor with his crossing.
