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.
