Player Ratings: Manchester United 0-1 Bayern Munich – Dave saves, Lindelof excellent

David de Gea – United’s best player. Where have we heard that before? Cool, calm, collected. Made some great saves. 7/10

Matteo Darmian – Not bad, but he’s just far too slow to play in United’s defence. 4/10

Eric Bailly – Was willing to put his body on the line, eventually, that cost him as he was subbed off through injury. 5/10

Victor Lindelof – Positionally, he was excellent. Bayern dominated us today, it could have been an unpleasant scoreline if Lindelof wasn’t playing. 6/10

Luke Shaw – I’d love to see him bomb up and down that flank more often. Probably done enough to start against Leicester, though. 5/10

Andreas Pereira – Quiet for the most part, particularly offensively. He made some important stops going in the other direction, though. 5/10

Ander Herrera – Busy, yet largely ineffective. He always gives his all for the cause, while wearing his heart on his sleeve. But not good enough to be a regular starter, particularly against the top teams. 4/10

Fred – Certainly quieter than his last outing. You can see the potential there, though. Simply has to start alongside Pogba and Matic when everyone is fit. 4/10

Juan Mata – Played some nice passes, but he just isn’t a winger as he struggles to get into the game from out wide. 4/10

Marcus Rashford – Looked rusty, which is understandable. Due to Martial going AWOL and Lukaku having no pre-season, he could well start the opener.

Alexis Sanchez – Worked his socks off with very little reward. He’ll certainly need more help than that going into the Premier League season. 6/10


Chris Smalling – Won a few headers, didn’t track the runner though.

Scott McTominay – Was clattered shortly after coming on, never really recovered or got into the game.

Phil Jones – Didn’t do too badly.

Tim Fosu-Mensah – Positionally great.

Lee Grant – Didn’t really have anything to do.

Demetri Mitchell – Could start the season as Luke Shaw’s back-up.

Tahith Chong – Certainly one for the future.

Axel Tuanzebe – Not enough time to mark.

James Garner – Nice for him to get back on the pitch.
