Manchester United player ratings: David de Gea and Luke Shaw shine vs Chelsea

David de Gea

Excellent save denied Ziyech. Awful distribution was not punished by hasty Giroud but the Spaniard was otherwise flawless. 8

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Too predictable in attack but did most of his defensive work diligently. 6

Harry Maguire

United took a risk in playing a high line in the first-half but Maguire was positive and led by example. 7

Victor Lindelof

Outstanding clearance prevented Werner from scoring late on. He switched off to allow Giroud a free run in the first-half but otherwise he defended well. 7

Luke Shaw

United’s best outfield player. Reached the byline on more than one occasion and made a crucial block after De Gea’s superb save. 8

Scott McTominay

Direct and positive in possession but quality let him down as he missed chance to play through teammate in final stages. 6


What a moment it would have been for the Brazilian had his right-footed curling effort crept in. Tireless performance and provided good protection for back four. 7

Bruno Fernandes

Final delivery was uncharacteristically disappointing, particularly on the counter and United suffered as a result.  5

Daniel James

Worked hard at both ends and pace proved a threat on the break. Played a key role in United’s high press. 6

Mason Greenwood

Best moment came when he fired just wide after lovely interplay with James. Improved in second-half but couldn’t have decisive impact. 6

Marcus Rashford

Perhaps should have been hooked instead of Greenwood, who was looking more threatening. Rashford had little impact on the left. 5


Anthony Martial

Could not impact the game upon his arrival. 6
