Player Ratings: Manchester United 1-1 AC Milan – Alexis Sanchez steals the show

Lee Grant – Never really tested, but looked calm and assured in-between the sticks. 5/10

Matteo Darmian – Decent. Offered himself as an attacking outlet and defended well. The final ball was somewhat lacking, though. 6/10

Axel Tuanzebe – Showed his inexperience as he was caught way out of position for AC’s leveller. He’ll learn from it, though. 4/10

Chris Smalling – Won his fair share of headers, but I always feel like a nervous wreck when he’s back there… 5/10

Eric Bailly – Tough in the tackle, aggressive, defended on the front-foot. 6/10

Luke Shaw – He was average. You just want him to take that left-back slot and make it his own, but every time there is an opening, Shaw seems to struggle to capitalise. 5/10

Scott McTominay – Was more adventurous than we’ve seen in recent times. He had a few shots from distance and troubled the goalkeeper. His passing was pretty useful, too. 6/10

Ander Herrera – Brought his usual energy to the game and controlled the tempo from midfield. 6/10

Juan Mata – Carved out some wonderful openings, and that pass into Sanchez early on was absolutely sublime. The perfect playmaker for United. 7/10

Andreas Pereira – It’s clear to me that he’s far better when deployed in an attacking position. It’s time to bin off the defensive-midfield test and let him flourish in the final third. 6/10

Alexis Sanchez – Ran the show. Scored United’s opener, pulled the strings throughout and was a real menace for the AC Milan defenders. Hopefully, this is a sign of things to come. 8/10

Subs:

Joel Pereira – Didn’t really have any saves to make.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah – Didn’t really make an impact.

Ethan Hamilton – Not enough time to mark.
