Manchester United player ratings: Mason Greenwood and Luke Shaw good vs Everton

Published

on

Edinson Cavani, Bruno Fernandes and Scott McTominay were on target for Man United against Everton and here are how the players rated.

David de Gea

Had little to do in the first-half and was culpable for Abdoulaye Doucoure’s tap-in early in the second. Still too error-prone. Weak for late leveller. 4

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

United had so much joy down Everton’s left and that was pushed by the proactive Wan-Bissaka. Getting much higher up the pitch. 7

Victor Lindelof

Dominated the flaky Richarlison and the likeliest Everton looked to breaching Lindelof was from his own error. 7

Harry Maguire

Nullified Dominic Calvert-Lewin for the majority but United suddenly became loose and conceded two goals in three minutes. 6

Luke Shaw

Not as involved as usual in the first-half but tallied an assist with a free-kick for Scott McTominay and his performance level was consistently high. 8

Scott McTominay

Probed with his passing and his aggression overwhelmed the Everton midfielders before he headed in past Robin Olsen. 8

Paul Pogba

Forced off with a muscle injury just before half-time. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had lamented Pogba’s dithering on the ball. 5

Mason Greenwood

Probably his best performance all season. Had Lucas Digne on toast and unfortunate not to get on the scoresheet. 8

Bruno Fernandes

Did next to nothing and then did something out of nothing with a magnificent, looping strike for his 17th of the season. 7

Marcus Rashford

Switched from left to right and provided a fabulous cross to assist Edinson Cavani. Squandered a gilt-edged chance at 2-2. 6

Edinson Cavani

Masterfully pulled off Michael Keane to nod United into the lead and provided a fine focal point once again. 7

Subs

Fred

His first meaningful moment was a harmless shot that went wide. Failed to spot the unattended James Rodriguez for the equaliser. 4

Axel Tuanzebe

Came on in added time and got booked. 5

Manager

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

United produced one of their finest first halves of the season but replacing Pogba with Fred badly backfired and was too conservative a change and the second-half was tense. 5
