Man United player ratings vs Man City: Luke Shaw shines but attackers struggle

David de Gea

Anticipated well to block Riyad Mahrez’s first-half effort but relatively untroubled throughout. 6

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Improved from the Leipzig debacle but ineffective on rare occasion he passed City’s half. 5

Victor Lindelof

Casual as United lacked tempo in possession throughout. Defended stoutly, however, and ultimately justified his inclusion. 5

Harry Maguire

Marshalled an organised defence well despite some shaky moments. Solid response after a miserable night on the continent. 6

Luke Shaw

Dealt with threat of Mahrez and Ferran Torres brilliantly on return to left-back. Dangerous corners caused problems for City before the break and United’s best defender. 7


Took a heavy knock from Kevin de Bruyne early on but recovered to reiterate his importance in a midfield pivot. 6

Scott McTominay

Could have given United the lead but Victor Lindelof’s flick-on evaded him. Protected the back four shrewdly but lacked ambition in possession. 5

Paul Pogba

United’s most likely man in attack. Given freedom to come inside and influence play from unconventional left-wing position but could not provide decisive moment. 6

Bruno Fernandes

Often indispensable but impotent as he was seldom found in useful positions and wilted towards the end. 4

Mason Greenwood

Struggled to make an impact from right-flank as United lacked ambition. Substituted for Anthony Martial on 73 minutes. 4

Marcus Rashford

Eager to make a difference but offered little to no service and tired late on. 4
