Player Ratings: Woeful Man United held to draw at Southampton, Rashford only bright spark

David de Gea – Made a couple of decent saves, couldn’t do anything about either goal. 6/10

Ashley Young – God loves a trier, but he’s just not a right-back by trade and it showed… Don’t even get me started on his final ball. 4/10

Nemanja Matic – Looks exhausted. He was exposed by Nathan Redmond on more than one occasion. 4/10

Phil Jones – The only recognisable centre-back. He did ok, but it’s hard when you’ve got two make-shift defenders either side of you. 5/10

Scott McTominay – Just doesn’t look like a top-level footballer. His decision-making is rash, his passing is limited and at times, he just makes daft, needless tackles to stop the momentum. 3/10

Luke Shaw – Did alright defensively, although I’d like to see more from him when going forward. I hope his injury isn’t too serious. 5/10

Marouane Fellaini – Not one of his better outings. He didn’t really grab the game by the scruff of its neck. He did have one chance with a header which I would expect him to do better with. 4/10

Paul Pogba – Poor. He always wants to take that extra touch, or do an extra bit of skill. More often than not, he loses possession and is left looking like a pillock. 3/10

Ander Herrera – Looked good going forward and grabbed himself a goal, but his defensive positioning was garbage. 5/10

Marcus Rashford – Picked up a couple of assists, looked bright and threatening… So Mourinho subs him off. Standard. 7/10

Romelu Lukaku – Scored to drag United back into the game. Things just weren’t coming for him from that point forward, though… 5/10

Subs:

Diogo Dalot – Nice to see him involved.

Anthony Martial – Not enough time to mark.

Jesse Lingard – Not enough time to mark.
