Manchester United have started the 2022-23 Premier League season in the worst possible way.
The Red Devils, led by new manager Erik ten Hag, were beaten 2-1 by Graham Potter’s Seagulls at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Following the game and shocking result, here is how we have rated every Man United player that featured.
Poor. Fumbled Brighton’s shot which led to Pascal Gross’ second. 3/10
Seldom found space to get forward but when he did, the Portuguese defender was influential in his team’s only goal. 5/10
Made a handful of blocks and last-ditch tackles, not great but wasn’t the worst performer. 5/10
Going to take some time for the former Ajax defender to adapt to the Premier League but by no means his new team’s weakest link. 5/10
Another average performance. Did everything okay, but didn’t stand out. 3/10
Poor ball control all game. Put his teammates under unnecessary pressure on multiple occasions. 2/10
Error-prone. Not convinced the Brazilian’s best position is as a defensive-minded midfielder. Subbed just after halftime for Cristiano Ronaldo. 2/10
Barely influenced the game. 4/10
Should have scored in the first half but skyed his effort. Poor throughout. 3/10
Nothing to shout about. 4/10
Man United’s best player. Played several key passes, looked sharp and like the Red Devils’ biggest offensive threat. 6/10
Non-existent during his cameo. 2/10
Donny van de Beek
Looked bright after being bought on in the second half. 5/10
