Man United player ratings vs Istanbul Basaksehir: Bruno Fernandes ineffective again

Manchester United suffered their first defeat in this season’s UEFA Champions League after losing to Turkish opponents Istanbul Basaksehir — losing 2-1.

The result puts a disappointing dint in our European form after impressive wins over Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig, and none of the players on the night will be happy with their performance.

That’s why the ratings tonight are low. Let us know in the comments if you think we’re being harsh or even overly complimentary…

Dean Henderson – Helpless for Istanbul Basaksehir’s two first-half goals. 5

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – Not as solid defensively as he’s shown in the past. 4

Axel Tuanzebe – Hooked at half-time after struggling. 4

Harry Maguire – Woeful first-half, a shadow of the player he can be. 3

Luke Shaw – Assisted Martial with a brilliant cross. 5

Nemanja Matic – Poor first-half before moving to centre-back after the break. Had little to do in second half. 3

Donny van de Beek – Started brightly but faded after Basaksehir’s opening goal. Better in the opening stages of the second half but replaced an hour into the game. 5

Juan Mata – Gave the ball away for Basaksehir’s second. 3

Bruno Fernandes – Wasted too much possession and didn’t create enough. Ineffective again. 4

Marcus Rashford – Ran at defenders and showed glimpses of skill, but it wasn’t his night in front of goal. 5

Anthony Martial – Scored. 6


Scott McTominay – Didn’t influence the game after replacing Tuanzebe at half-time. 5

Paul Pogba – Offered little when he came on. 4

Edinson Cavani – Closed down defenders but didn’t bring anything extra to our attack. 5

Mason Greenwood – N/A

Timothy Fosu-Mensah – N/A
