Manchester United beat Championship side Burnley 2-0 at Old Trafford this evening in the Carabao Cup. Here are our player ratings for the game:
(A score of 6 is around average.)
Martin Dubravka 4 – Looked dodgy in the first half but improved in the second. A bit.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka 8 – A great way to stake a claim. Superb cross for Eriksen’s goal and all round excellent performance. Must have made Ten Hag think.
Victor Lindelof 7 – Did fine.
Casemiro 6.5 – Looked like he’d been playing centre back his entire career. Performance marred by poor pass in the 81st minute.
Tyrell Malacia 6.5 – Did well enough, but didn’t seem to be on anyone’s wavelength going forward.
Christian Eriksen 8 – Great goal and some sublime passing. Controlled the midfield.
Scott McTominay 3.5 – Some good energy marred by some poor passing and horrible shooting.
Marcus Rashford 8.5 – Needs to learn the offside rule, but what a second half. What a solo goal. Maybe the right wing isn’t so bad after all.
Bruno Fernandes 7.5 – Superb pass in lead up to Eriksen’s goal. Lots of energy and led the press.
Alejandro Garnacho 6.5 – Unlucky not to score early on, but perhaps should have shot to the keeper’s right.
Anthony Martial 6.5 – Quiet game. Got a good shot away after deft footwork in the box.
Antony 5 – Looked rusty, or unfocused.
Luke Shaw 5.5 – Was out of position on a couple of occasions. Unfocused.
Anthony Elanga 5.5 – Showed nothing. Looks devoid of confidence.
Fred 6 – Didn’t have much time to influence the game.
Brandon Williams 6 – Not much time to influence.
