Manchester United beat Real Sociedad 1-0 this evening in San Sebastian but it wasn’t enough to win the group. Here are our player ratings for the game:
(A score of 6 is around average.)
David de Gea 8 – Great double save in the first half. On fire right now.
Diogo Dalot 8 – Looks so assured and confident. Another great performance.
Victor Lindelof 8 – Didn’t put a foot wrong. Hope the injury isn’t serious. Much better than Maguire on current form.
Lisandro Martinez 8 – Nothing got past him. When Sorloth momentarily found a chink of light, it was snatched away quickly.
Luke Shaw 7 – Played well, lots of positive forward runs.
Casemiro 7 – Snuffed out so many attacks before they even happened. Déja vu time traveller.
Christian Eriksen 6.5 – Subdued today, but did fine.
Bruno Fernandes 7.5 – Some superb passing.
Donny van de Beek 4 – That’s the trouble with Donny, he’s Mr Invisible. Did nothing particularly wrong, but that’s because he did nothing full stop. Totally underwhelming.
Alejandro Garnacho 8 – This boy is mustard. faded in second half.
Cristiano Ronaldo 7.5 – Seems to be shedding another skin and becoming provider. Did that job really well.
Scott McTominay 5 – Added little and was wasteful in possession.
Marcus Rashford 6 – Did nothing interesting. Doesn’t suit the number 10 role, if that’s what that was.
Fred 6 – Little influence.
Harry Maguire 6 – At least it kept him out of harm’s way.
