Manchester United player ratings: Anthony Martial and Victor Lindelof poor vs West Brom

David de Gea

Could do little to keep out Diagne but denied his second. Superb double save to save Maguire from embarrassment. 7

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Afforded plenty of possession in final third but couldn’t find a decisive cross. Relatively untroubled defensively. 6

Harry Maguire

Should have taken responsibility as Lindelof continued to lose battle with Diagne. Mauled by the West Brom striker in second-half and reprieved by De Gea. Excellent header late on denied by incredible save. 5

Victor Lindelof

Weak as he was dominated by Diagne for West Brom’s opener. Bailly is Maguire’s best central defensive partner and that was reiterated this afternoon. 4

Luke Shaw

Caught narrow for West Brom’s opener but fourth assist of the year allowed Fernandes to level terms. 6

Scott McTominay

Not effective in initiating attacks and rarely made ambitious runs into box. Aggressive at times in defence and had shot blocked off the line. 5

Fred

Too slow in attacking transition as United’s midfield axis lacked creative edge. Substituted too late. 4

Bruno Fernandes

Poor and cut a frustrated figure for 44 minutes before stunning goal. His impact was limited only to his left-footed volley. 6

Marcus Rashford

Another game where he was ineffective and surely he will now be afforded a rest by Solskjaer. Needs to go back to basics and play the simple pass. 4

Anthony Martial

Anonymous for large periods and movement off the ball was poor. Only surprise was that he wasn’t substituted sooner. 3

Edinson Cavani

Frustrated by a lack of chances in congested penalty area. His movement was good but not rewarded as he wasn’t helped by his fellow frontmen. 6

Substitutes

Mason Greenwood

Decent effort was kept out by Johnstone. Should have come on earlier. 6

Donny van de Beek

Not given enough time to influence play as West Brom arguably finished stronger. 5

    Lindelof is just not good enough for UTD,he just gets bullied all the time, and oppo” players know this, how Martial gets a game , only OLE knows, too many draws now to hunt the Bitters down” Im afraid, we need to get our shooting boots”on and stop relying on BRUNO to score, awfull attacking and defending, MUST DO BETTER !!

  2. Paul Akoja says:

    For ole to win trophies like pep then he needs to be ruthless.
    1.ole’s decision should be based on forms of players and not on sentiment
    2. Getting idea competitors in all positions will benefit the team. Rashford, lindelof, maguire, martial have bn very poor but ole feels so reluctant b replace them. Pep will be ruthless n he will get his three points but ole will use sentiment n dis will cos him three points
    3. Ole needs to be more vocal on the touch line as the modern generation of players are not as devoted like the players during his playing days. Sitting down wouldn’t help situation and every good manager out there are coming to epl hence he needs to be vocal n up doing to win trophies or sits down reading data from tablet n not winning trophies

    Aaron Wan-Bissaka – no decisive cross. He had many crosses, however, the lazy Martial and Rashford/Bruno did not manage to make contact – only this newspaper can blame Bissaka for that.
    Fred – likely the best fighter of all, but get nothing out of it. Teach him to score from the distance like Scholes did.
    Rashford ver poor, but the other players good take advantage of it, provided they could convince Rashford to pass the ball. Each and every time Rashford run toward the opponents penalty area, they sent 4 players against him, which should create some space for others.
    Donny van de Beek is just a player, who United paid 29 mill too much for – completely useless in United.
