Our Man United player ratings vs Leicester City are in, with Bruno Fernandes and Luke Shaw the pick of the bunch.
David de Gea – Could he have done better for Harvey Barnes’ goal? Maybe… 5/10
Victor Lindelof – Had a steady first hour in an unfamiliar right-back role. Unfortunately had to go off with an injury. 6/10
Eric Bailly – Used his pace to good effect on a couple of occasions. Solid. 6/10
Harry Maguire – Won many headers and made a key interception. 6/10
Luke Shaw – Probably United’s best player on the day. He was constantly making driving runs forward, won some important tackles and completely shut down his side. 8/10
Scott McTominay – Allowed Barnes way too much space to shoot for the Leicester equaliser. Didn’t get forward anywhere near enough. 4/10
Fred – Continues to be hit and miss. Covered every blade of grass but his passing let him down on more than one occasion. 5/10
Bruno Fernandes – A standard day at the office. Picked up an assist with the tip of his toe and scored United’s second. If I’m being critical, he gave it away in a dreadful position for Leicester’s first. 7/10
Daniel James – Gave it away far too cheaply. Not strong enough to hold opposing players off. Rightfully subbed. 3/10
Marcus Rashford – Missed a sitter early on. Did score about twenty minutes later but he wasn’t quite at the races today. 5/10
Anthony Martial – Made a lovely run early on, but that was about it. 4/10
Axel Tuanzebe – Came on for the injured Victor Lindelof. Unfortunate to concede an own-goal.
Paul Pogba – Didn’t really get into it.
Edinson Cavani – He oozes class, doesn’t he? Picked up a lovely assist for United’s second. Has to start our next league game.
