Manchester United player ratings: Luke Shaw and Fred good vs Arsenal

Published

on

Man United were left to rue missed chances at Arsenal in a goalless draw and here are how the players rated at the Emirates Stadium.

David de Gea

Handled first-half efforts from Alexandre Lacazette and David Luiz dependably. Saved well in the second-half from Emile Smith Rowe. 7

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

More present in the final third, even if he had to be triggered by Kieran McKenna. Made a goal-saving block from Willian and crossed brilliantly for Cavani. 7

Victor Lindelof

Received instructions from his manager in Norwegian at a corner. Calmer in defence than Harry Maguire and wasn’t drawn into committing fouls. 7

Harry Maguire

Crucial block to deny Nicolas Pepe early in the second-half but clumsy with his physicality at times and got booked. 6

Luke Shaw

A major upgrade on Alex Telles and could easily have claimed an assist when he found Marcus Rashford. Effectively a winger in the second-half. 8

Scott McTominay

Was secure in midfield alongside Fred until injury forced him off before half-time. Clear he couldn’t continue well before then. 6

Fred

One of the major reasons behind United’s improvement and almost clipped in his first goal of the season. Pressed and intercepted well. 7

Marcus Rashford

Had the beating of Gabriel Martinelli and Cedric Soares, with the former substituted at the pause. But his end product was poor. 4

Bruno Fernandes

Always seemed capable of creating something out of nothing and a free-kick deflected just over. Faded in the second-half. 5

Paul Pogba

Unsurprisingly, much more involved once he was called in from the wing to partner Fred. Did not produce a game-changing moment. 6

Edinson Cavani

Expressed his dismay at a lack of direct service and occasionally drifted to get more involved. Should have scored from Shaw’s cross and then Wan-Bissaka’s cross. 5

Subs

Anthony Martial

Came on in the first-half for McTominay and was instantly alert. Committed enough, albeit ineffectual. 6

Mason Greenwood

Replaced Rashford for the last 10 minutes. 5

Manager

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

His team selection was justified, as was moving Pogba to midfield. Should have sent Greenwood on earlier. 6
