Sancho impresses again: player ratings from Man Utd 2-2 Aston Villa

Manchester United’s perfect pre-season record came to an end after Aston Villa came from two goals down to equalise in the dying embers of the game in Perth.

United secured a two-goal advantage going into half-time, with Jadon Sancho scoring the first and setting up the second just minutes later.

Erik ten Hag’s men impressed in the first 45 minutes despite the woeful conditions but the momentum swung Villa’s way after the interval and when the United boss made 10 changes, they were in full control.

The draw means that United travel back to Manchester with three wins and one draw from their four games but all-in-all, Ten Hag will be pleased with the progress this summer.

David de Gea – 5
Had very little to do in the first half and will be kicking himself for not stopping Villa’s equaliser.

Diogo Dalot – 7
Steadily becoming one of the first names on the teamsheet under Ten Hag – the young defender has had a brilliant tour.

Harry Maguire – 8
Saved a certain goal from Leon Bailey moments before the entire team was replaced. Another astute performance from the skipper.

Victor Lindelof – 6
Should have done better for Villa’s first goal.

Luke Shaw – 6
Good first half, which included the assist for Sancho’s opener. The second half was awful, however. Villa identified his side as United’s weakest and Bailey had a field day.

Fred – 8
Different role against Villa after Scott McTominay was ruled out and he executed it well. Like the rest of the team, he fell off in the first half but it was a promising display nonetheless.

Donny van de Beek – 6
The poor pitch seemed to affect him more than anyone else. A passenger throughout, unfortunately.

Bruno Fernandes – 7
Keeps things ticking over for United in a new role. Did it again in Perth.

Marcus Rashford – 7
One third of a deadly trio once again. He’ll claim the second goal but it might go down as an own-goal.

Jadon Sancho – 9
United’s best player against Villa and possibly across the entire tour.

Anthony Martial – 8
His goalscoring streak has come to an end but once again, he was active and pressed relentlessly – exactly what the supporters want to see.
