Player Ratings: Manchester United 3-2 Tottenham – Heroic display from Ronaldo

Manchester United hosted Tottenham Hotspur and got what they needed. The lads secured three points after beating today’s opponents 3-2 at Old Trafford.

Here’s how we rated each starting player on their performance.

David de Gea – 5

No goalkeeper in the world was stopping Harry Kane’s penalty but other than that, the Spaniard had a surprisingly quiet game in terms of having to make saves. There was very little he could’ve done with Maguire’s own goal.

Diogo Dalot – 5

Made an important clearance off the line from Eric Dier in the first half. Kept getting dragged inside.

Raphael Varane – 7

Assured performance. Read the game brilliantly.

Harry Maguire – 5

Shocker own goal to concede but wasn’t helped by Dalot.

Alex Telles – 6

Conceded the penalty in the first-half. A pretty average display throughout.

Nemanja Matic – 7

Steady head in the middle and go us moving for Ronaldo’s second goal.

Fred – 7

Nice flick to assist Ronaldo’s opener. Provided lots of energy throughout the game and broke into Tottenham’s half on more than one occasion in the second-half.

Paul Pogba – 5

Hot and cold throughout. Went missing in phases of the game.

Jadon Sancho – 6

Poor defending before the penalty was given in the first half, but made amends with an assist for Ronaldo before half-time.

Marcus Rashford – 5

Ran a lot but offered nothing on the ball. Hauled off with 30 minutes to play for Anthony Elanga.

Cristiano Ronaldo – 9

The hero of the day scored his first hat-trick since returning to the club. It won us the game.

    Congratulations the lads! Let’s maintain the tempo on Thursday against ATM

  2. Ronald says:

    Congrats to the Lads. A very hard fought 3 points. As for Pogba he should start negotiating with other teams as soon as possible. He performance was very very poor. His rating was supposed to be 3 not 5. Too much criticism against Fred but most of the games he produces something better than the so called class players who are overrated. Give him number 10 role or 8 when Fernandez is not available.

  3. Minda says:

    I don’t want to see one player from this lineup. That player is Maguire. He is not deserved to play for this great team and should be benched for the rest of the season.

  4. Excellent Larry A says:

    The boys played well but not satisfactory. Many of Man U players need to improve in their games.
    Too many mistakes and can’t mark properly or keep possession. Wrong passes was the order of the day from some of the players.
    Pogba, Rashford didn’t live up to expectations. Maguire is still playing badly, I think he needs to be benched
    and allow Eric Bailey and Lindelof to take proceedings for the reminder of the season.

  5. Joe Askew says:

    Pogba was awful – 4 at best!

    Thought Maguire had Kane in his pocket throughout the game – a good 6/7

    Fred a good game – yeh a 7/8

    Thought Marcus did well but rarely got the ball . He made so many runs in the first half especially and no one played over the top into the channels. Deserved a 6/7 at least.

  6. Halema Daniel says:

    Fred was good today

  7. Henry says:

    The whole team need to improve, players should be wanting, some did good work like cr7, degea, matic, Fred, Sancho, verane but still need to improve

  8. Daniel Kiragu says:

    Ralf need to sideline pogba. He is too sloppy.

  9. John Metcalfe says:

    Pogba was garbage, lost the ball on nearly every occasion too slow, and trys to be too clever, time to leave.
