Manchester United player ratings: Aaron Wan-Bissaka good but attackers struggle vs Arsenal

David de Gea

Saved well from Smith-Rowe and grateful for Wan-Bissaka’s excellent recovery. 7

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

More comfortable going forward and headed wide with good chance. Crucial recovery block denied Willian Arsenal’s opener and United’s best player. 8

Harry Maguire

Too many touches in possession as United were too slow in attacking transition. Deserves credit for commitment in overcoming Arsenal’s second-half deluge. 7

Victor Lindelof

More convincing partner for Maguire than Axel Tuanzebe was in midweek. Several key interceptions prevented good openings. 7

Luke Shaw

Welcome return and more proficient than Alex Telles going forward. Troubled at times by Nicolas Pepe down Arsenal’s right. 6

Scott McTominay

Struggled with stomach problem for a while before belated substitution as United changed their approach. 6

Fred

Close to scoring with fine half-volley in first-half and his energy improved United’s midfield. 6

Bruno Fernandes

Fired up and fortunate not to be punished for challenge on Xhaka. He never found space in between Arsenal’s midfield and defence and was second game in a week he hasn’t had his usual totemic impact. 4

Paul Pogba

Started on the left but more comfortable when he joined Fred in midfield axis after McTominay’s substitution. Influence didn’t grow as expected in second-half as Arsenal had edge in the middle of the park. 6

Marcus Rashford

Wasteful and could have pulled the trigger in first-half when free at the back post. Rarely brought off as Solskjaer tried to get a spark out of Greenwood. 4

Edinson Cavani

Got into promising positions with great movement and worked tirelessly throughout. Late volley went agonisingly wide. 6

Substitutes

Anthony Martial

Lacked the movement of Cavani despite United’s initial spark when he was introduced. Still out-of-sorts and he couldn’t provide a decisive moment in attack. 4

Mason Greenwood

Perhaps should have been introduced sooner. Pull-back should have been met by Martial in the box. 6
