Man United player ratings: Cavani, Pogba and Greenwood inspire brilliant Tottenham win

Dean Henderson

Two good saves with feet denied Kane and Son. Alert positionally to clear danger and couldn’t do anything to prevent Spurs goal. 7

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Enjoyed freedom afforded by Son in attack and his confidence is growing in possession. 7

Harry Maguire

Dealt relatively well with his England teammate Harry Kane and marshalled his defence well. 7

Victor Lindelof

Bad mistake led to Son’s goal but he improved thereafter and United were rarely troubled after the break. 6

Luke Shaw

The Premier League’s best-left back just keeps getting better in attack. Two delightful crosses created good openings and solid defensively. 7

Scott McTominay

Booked in early stages and his ‘foul’ on Son denied United Cavani’s opener. Forced good save from Lloris. 6

Fred

Poor before goal which was a collectors item and preceded by superb interplay. 6

Bruno Fernandes

Furious with referee in first-half and channelled anger well after break. Unfortunate to have great effort saved by Lloris and deft flick led to Cavani goal. 7

Paul Pogba

Glorious pass to Cavani for the goal that should have stood. Constant threat but overcomplicated glaring chance. 8

Marcus Rashford

Not decisive enough in key moments and taken off for Greenwood with fitness still a concern. 5

Edinson Cavani

Superb run and finish for disallowed goal and frustration after led to booking. Movement is world class and header was of a supreme finisher. 9

Substitutes

Mason Greenwood

Sensational cross for Cavani and stunning right-foot finish proves he’s United’s best option from the right. What an impact. 8

Nemanja Matic

    How can u guys rate Fred at 6. He was the engine in that game for sure. He did all the dirty work, ran the whole to ensure passes are not completed by the opposition midfielders and scored an important first goal that opened the floodgates. United are very unfair with Fred- we shall realize his importance the day he leaves

    • Ben’s ratings, not mine, but I thought he gave Fred more credit for his display than Roy Keane did on Sky.

      I certainly think it’s a better assessment.
