Reguilon 7, Onana 4: player ratings from Manchester United 1-3 Brighton

Manchester United’s poor start to the season was extended on Saturday afternoon as they fell to a fourth consecutive Premier League defeat to Brighton, with the south coast club now recording a win against the Reds in each of the last three seasons.

United have just six points from the first five games and are now off to a worse start than last season and Erik ten Hag will be worried by some of the things he has seen in the first month of action.

The Old Trafford faithful were treated to a brilliant start to the game, with United looking dangerous with each attack in the first 20 minutes. They were unlucky not to take the lead.

But when Brighton scored roughly halfway through the first half, the game completely changed and the visitors ran out deserved winners in the end.

Man United Player Ratings

Andre Onana – 4
It was always going to be a big ask to replace David de Gea after 12 years but thus far, the Cameroon international is struggling to live up to the hype.

Diogo Dalot – 5
Created a half-chances in the final third.

Victor Lindelof – 5
Shaky at the back.

Lisandro Martinez – 5
Does not compliment Lindelof very well – it’s more noticeable in some situations.

Sergio Reguilon – 8
On a personal level, he will be happy with his first United outing. United’s best player on the day.

Casemiro – 4
Continuing to struggle this season. Hard to tell if it’s him or the lack of structure around him.

Scott McTominay – 5
Definitely added a bit of steel and legs to the midfield.

Christian Eriksen – 6
United’s most creative spark in the final third.

Bruno Fernandes – 6
Did well more than he didn’t.

Marcus Rashford – 6
Unlucky not to score at least one goal today.

Rasmus Hojlund – 8
Almost the perfect debut for the Danish international but his second-half equaliser was ruled out by the VAR. Unlucky.

  1. how can you watch that game and think the problem was onana? De gea wouldn’t have saved any of those shots, maybe the de gea of 6 years ago could have saved the third one. but i doubt it.

    DDG is still without a job. ederson, alisson would never be without a job 3 months after being a free agent. thats how bad De gea is and how little you know about football.

    fact is that ETH is a truly awful manager and every game without fail he is schooled by a better manager. he relies on individual brillance and the counter attack. he is basically worse than ole at this point cos he certainly has a better squad.

    he will be fired within 6 months. i just can’t belive that fans still think he is any good.

    it will take stretty news about three months to realise

  2. Ten Hag’s poor selection /formation, cost Man utd today’s match against Brighton. One wonders why a natural national right winger (Pellistry) € should continue to be ignored in first team selection.
    Hannibal has proved to the coaching crew that over reliance on a particular set of players to win matches for you isn’t the best. Concerning the goal keeping department, i once said that Man Utd would regret letting De Gea go and that is exactly what is happening. The Spaniard would not have let in those three goals.

  3. Ten hag’s poor squad selection will cost man u alot. Instead of making better relationship with players, he is the one to bring disunity(eg sancho’s case), MAN U should think proper about this awful manager before it is too late.

  4. we have 2 exciting wingers a new number 9 who so far is justifying his signing so those who could supply him with crosses are bought on 5 minutes from time but we have that lazy bum Martial as their target for crosses Hannibal is the only one besides Requilon to come out out with any credit and he nearly went out on loan Brighton’s lineup cost around £20 million ours over £300 million but you would think it was the other way round and a United old boy Welbeck opened the scoring for them
