Man United player ratings vs Leicester: Shaw and Fernandes good but Martial ineffective

David de Gea 

Should not be maligned for letting in Harvey Barnes’ fine strike with blocked view but had shaky moment in possession. 5

Luke Shaw

Solid in defence and United’s most effective set-piece taker from crossing range. Could have had first-half assist as Fernandes headed over. He’s been immense since the arrival of Alex Telles. 7

Harry Maguire 

Nervy moments in first-half but defended stoutly at times with important blocks. 6

Eric Bailly

At fault as he could not handle Jamie Vardy’s exceptional movement for second equaliser. 4

Victor Lindelof

Unconvincing as he failed to settle in less familiar right-back position. Experiment didn’t work and Tuanzebe may have been a better choice from the start. His injury is a concern with games coming thick and fast. 4

Scott McTominay

Not as sharp as Leeds game and needed to do more to close down Barnes for equaliser. Combative in the middle but void of attacking inspiration. 5

Fred

Provided plenty of energy and industry in the middle but was not ambitious enough in possession. 5

Daniel James

Promising when afforded rare space on the right but ultimately ineffective and substituted early after the break. 5

Bruno Fernandes 

Another assist with key touch for Rashford’s opener but foolish nutmeg attempt proved costly for equaliser. Showed ultimate composure when played through by Cavani for 14th goal of season. 7

Marcus Rashford

Got redemption for missing early sitter with clinical finish for opener. Kept out for second by superb Schmeichel save. 6

Anthony Martial

Dangerous at times but end product too often lacking and brought off for a more potent goal threat. 5

Substitutes

Paul Pogba

Gave United control upon welcome arrival. 6

Axel Tuanzebe

Replaced Lindelof at right-back and allowed Vardy free to score deflected equaliser late on. 4

Edinson Cavani

Instant impact as he dropped deep and played perfectly weighted pass for Fernandes. United’s best number nine right now. 7

    very good performance

  2. Colin Clarke says:

    This (especially the first half) was not a top half performance. Some of the ball given away was criminal and amateurish at times. Bruno was terrible for the first goal but Scott and Bailly should have attacked the ball not back off and let Barnes shoot. Overall a draw was a fair result, but if Liverpool win against West Brom (and they should) the gap is starting and none of the chasing teams will want that to get too big.

  3. John carton says:

    Our back four including de gea were awful as bad as you get for a defence in the Premier League, and there wages would be more than alot of Premier Leagues starting 11, United are a joke, Why pay such average players stupid money Why???

  4. Thomas Nathan says:

    Tuanzebee should not be blamed for the 2nd goal. he could do nothing about it. Someone should have man-marked Jamie Vardy and that should be the Captain’s duty to organize the defense against the most dangerous man in Leicester’s team.

  5. Stephen John Kershaw says:

    Where was Vardys marker for their goal? hes their Main Man” afterall isnt he?,we play well but seem to let other teams score by silly mistakes,not clearing the ball seems to be one of them.Saying all that, we have improved and I expect a win against Wolves with the hapless James glued”to the bench ! onwards and upwards for UTD into 2021
