Manchester United player ratings vs Real Sociedad: Bruno Fernandes and Fred shine in excellent display

The only criticism of Manchester United against Real Sociedad in Turin is that they didn’t score more.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side effectively ended this round-of-32 Europa League tie by netting four away goals against their La Liga opponents.

Here are our player ratings:

Dean Henderson

Important early save at near post allowed United to grow after they were unnerved early on. Launched counter-attack for United’s third and commanded his box. 8

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Perhaps could have been rested this evening but predictably solid defensively despite booking. 7

Harry Maguire

Improved after shaky opening and made great block. Still looks more comfortable with Bailly alongside him. 7

Eric Bailly

Calamitous start but two errors in first five minutes not punished. The Ivorian grew in confidence and may have done enough to start against Newcastle on Sunday. 7

Alex Telles

Dealt relatively well with Adnan Januzaj who would have been desperate to impress. 7

Scott McTominay

Another performance which highlighted his growing importance. Given license to drive forward and efficient with his work. 8


Superb diligence in defence matched by progressive use of possession. Through ball for Rashford’s goal was glorious. 8

Bruno Fernandes

20th and 21st goals of the season taken clinically. He seldom fails to deliver and his incredible goal record continues. 9

Daniel James

Danger on the counter-attack and exploited opposition’s defensive woes. Surprise start and delivered with superb finish. 7

Mason Greenwood

Great cover work evinced maturity and desire as he denied Monreal’s clear opening. Performance deserving of a goal. 8

Marcus Rashford

Profligate finishing in first-half but movement great and created both of Fernandes’ goals. Finally got his goal after Fred’s marvellous pass. 7


Nemanja Matic

Allowed McTominay a rest and was untroubled. 6

Anthony Martial

Rested and didn’t get chance to replicate his fellow attackers’ brilliance. 6

Juan Mata

First appearance in a long time as United had total control. 6


Promising on the left but United’s dominance means he should start second-leg. 6
