Player Ratings: Man United blitz Newcastle 4-1 as Rashford, Fernandes & Mata all impress

Well, they left it somewhat late, but our Red Devils got the job done in emphatic fashion. It’s time for our Man United player ratings vs Newcastle United.

David de Gea – Made some super saves to keep Newcastle at bay. Looks back to his brilliant best. 8/10

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – Marked his 50th appearance for the club with a lovely goal. Pretty good defensively, too. 6/10

Victor Lindelof – Looked nervous at times and was beaten far too easily by Wilson for the Newcastle opener. 4/10

Harry Maguire – Drew United level with a super, super header. He deserved that performance tonight. What a relief it must be for our skipper. 7/10

Luke Shaw – Unfortunately, stuck it in his own net early on. However, from that point forward, I thought he had an excellent game. 6/10

Scott McTominay – Grew into the game and looked far more confident in the second 45. 5/10

Fred – Pretty steady. Worked hard and kept things simple. 5/10

Bruno Fernandes – What a player. Missed a penalty but didn’t let that keep him down. He’d score United’s exquisite second. Oh, he also picked up two assists. 8/10

Juan Mata – Brought some intelligence and creativity to the United attack. It was brilliant to see him flourish on his first start since February. 7/10

Daniel James – Had a good game. He looks far more suited to the left-wing, though when everyone is fit, the problem is he’ll find it hard to get minutes. 6/10

Marcus Rashford – Led the line wonderfully-well. Scored a cracking fourth goal to round it off and was instrumental in United’s second. Outstanding. 8/10

Subs:

Paul Pogba – Kept things ticking over.

Donny van de Beek – Played a vital role in United’s second. Absolutely should have started.
