David de Gea – Made some unreal saves yet again. He was arguably United’s top performer. 6/10
Diogo Dalot – Had a mixed evening. Went missing on a couple of occasions but did try to get forward. 5/10
Victor Lindelof – Switched off and went AWOL for the eventual Villa leveller. Not good enough in terms of concentration. 4/10
Raphael Varane – Also caught ball-watching for the Coutinho goal. It’s a shame as he was having an excellent game. 5/10
Alex Telles – Looked bright, particularly in the first 30 minutes. Always tried to get forward and make things happen. However, that left plenty of space in behind him. 5/10
Nemanja Matic – Struggled with the pace of the game. Was a bystander at times. Fortunate to not see a red card, too. Dreadful. 3/10
Fred – Showed the good and the bad. Was sharp for United’s second goal and grabbed an assist. However, he played the ball into Ramsey’s path for Villa’s first. 4/10
Bruno Fernandes – Looked back to his best as he scored an excellent brace. He definitely is more suited to a central role. 7/10
Mason Greenwood – Threatened with his directness and willingness to take shots on goal. 6/10
Anthony Elanga – Without question, the bright spark. He made things happen whenever the ball was at his feet. He has to start next time out. 7/10
Edinson Cavani – Worked hard and set the tone in regards to our pressing game. I’d like to see him get into more goalscoring positions, though. 5/10
Jadon Sancho – Didn’t really get into it.
Donny van de Beek – Not enough time to mark.
Jesse Lingard – Not enough time to mark.
