Player Ratings: Man United lose 2-0 on derby day, awful all-round

Player Ratings: Man United lose 2-0 on derby day, awful all-round

David de Gea – The question marks are rightfully being raised, he should have done better with Leroy Sane’s goal. 3/10

Matteo Darmian – For a man who hasn’t started a game in 2019, he did alright. It was always going to be tough for him though. 5/10

Chris Smalling – Easily United’s best player. He dealt with Sergio Aguero extremely well. 6/10

Victor Lindelof – Looked shaky at times, often caught out of position. 4/10

Luke Shaw – I’d like to see him bomb forward more often. Defensively, he struggled with City’s brilliant movement. 4/10

Ashley Young – Just dreadful. Slow, lethargic, one-dimensional, nervous and plainly not good enough. He’s our captain, by the way. 2/10

Andreas Pereira – Got about the field well but when in possession he just doesn’t have the quality. 4/10

Fred – The intent was there but when it came to the execution Fred was sloppy. 4/10

Paul Pogba – Played a couple of nice passes, showed his strength on multiple occasions but he was often overrun. He did go missing at times, though. 4/10

Jesse Lingard – Quiet. He isn’t having a good season at all. Injuries haven’t helped but it feels as though he is no longer making those intelligent runs that we became so used to seeing. 3/10

Marcus Rashford – His pace was causing Kompany problems in the early goings, but as the game wore on he looked exhausted. 4/10


Anthony Martial – Didn’t get into the game.

Alexis Sanchez – Touched the ball once. Inside his own half.

Romelu Lukaku – Tried to make things happen but had his back to goal far too often.
