Manchester United lost 1-2 to Man City in the FA Cup final this afternoon. Here are our player ratings for the game.
(A score of 6 is around average)
David de Gea 1 – Gundogan’s goal was maybe unstoppable, but kneeling down was not the way to stop it. Caught similarly flat-footed shortly after but got away with it. Second goal was absolutely inexcusable. Distribution terrible. Hard to imagine United won’t buy a keeper this summer. He has cost us two trophies this season.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka 8 – Did really well, had Grealish in his pocket. Unlucky to be booked on half time for a slide that was intended to be an interception, not a tackle.
Raphael Varane 7.5 – Caught out of position a couple of times but by and large, kept Haaland quiet. Could’ve scored with the header from a corner late in the first half and another late in the second that hit the bar.
Victor Lindelof 7.5 – Did well.
Luke Shaw 8.5 – Commanding from Shaw. United’s best player today.
Casemiro 8 – Held the midfield together while those around him floundered.
Fred 3 – One of Fred’s horrible performances. Could not get near De Bruyne and provided nothing of note either offensively or defensively.
Bruno Fernandes 8 – Played well and dispatched the penalty expertly.
Christian Eriksen 3 – As bad as Fred, if not worse. Moved and thought slowly and was pickpocketed on numerous occasions. Rightly subbed.
Jadon Sancho 5 – Poor, achieved very little, he looked overawed and scared for the most part. Slightly better in second. Had a nice run in the box.
Marcus Rashford 7 – Cut a frustrated figure up front. Isolated and got very little to feed off. Looked like he could do something given half a chance.
Alejandro Garnacho 8 – Immediate impact. Immediate upgrade on Sancho. His 5-year deal is a great thing to have come out of this season.
Wout Weghorst 6 – No real impact.
Scott McTominay 5 – Should have rescued it at the end. What a miss.
