David de Gea gets 7, Wan-Bissaka with 2 | Manchester United Player ratings in defeat to Manchester City

- Advertisement -

Manchester United suffered a terrible loss at Old Trafford against Manchester City. The 2-0 scoreline says little about Manchester United’s poor defending and chance-creating. United conceded an own goal within the first ten minutes as Eric Bailly’s attempt to clear a cross went into the far corner of his net. Later, Bernardo Silva took advantage of an opening caused by Luke Shaw’s poor marking. On the other hand, United had only one shot on target. Following all of these the Manchester derby concluded with City emerging as the winner. Let’s have a look at the individual player ratings of Manchester United players.

Manchester United Player Ratings

Manchester United Player Ratings, Six Sports

David de Gea – 7/10

His returning back to his form has timed perfectly with United’s woeful defending. If it was not for him, United would have conceded 3 or 4 more goals. However, he could have done better in saving the 2nd City goal but can be excused because of Shaw’s poor marking.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 2/10

Shambles. He lacked even basic positional awareness, had to be reminded of his position by other players and his manager. He has to do a lot of work on his positioning.

Victor Lindelof – 5/10

Lindelof was included late in the squad after a late injury test. Although he did not make obvious errors as others, while he was still not as world-class also. He should work on completely recovering from his injury as soon as possible.

Eric Bailly – 4/10

Bailly went into this game with great form and momentum but failed to capitalize on it and scored an absurd own goal. United replaced him since they changed to back four from back three.

Harry Maguire – 5/10

Was outplayed at times by City’s wonderful football. He is probably in the worst form of his life and should change that as soon as possible. While he might do better with Varane at his side.

Luke Shaw – 4/10

Shaw was the best left-back in the league last season but has fallen down to average this season. His error in marking Bernardo Silva lead to City’s 2nd goal. He seems to have lost some pace and could do some work on his fitness.

Scott Mctominay – 4/10

Scott was not quick enough to make decisions and make passes and took too much time on the ball. An opponent like City can easily benefit from this and won’t spare if a chance is given.

Fred – 4/10

Fred was not sharp at all and City midfielders ran over him as he is not physically challenging. Following which he failed to trouble City at all.

Bruno Fernandes – 3/10

He failed to make an impact with his passing when United needed it and which he usually does quite flawlessly. His failure at key passing also resulted in losing possession quite a few times and it was not easy to win the ball back from City.

Mason Greenwood – 4/10

He should have started on the bench considering that Rashford gives more pace on counterattacks. He was also unable to work in the double striker formation.

Cristiano Ronaldo – 5/10

He was only able to draw one save from Ederson. City succeeded at isolating him and he also did not receive proper service from any of his teammates.


Jadon Sancho – 5/10

Sancho bought some energy into play but he was up against a mighty Kyle Walker.

Marcus Rashford – 5/10

He failed to change the game and made close to zero impact.

Alex Telles – 5/10

Telles got an important tackle just right in the box. He was unable to move forward.

Donny van de Beek – 5/10

Fans cheered his introduction sarcastically as he barely even touched the ball.
