McTominay 10, Casemiro 4: player ratings from Manchester United 2-1 Brentford

Manchester United completed a stunning turnaround against Brentford at Old Trafford earlier today when two goals from Scott McTominay in stoppage time ensured Erik ten Hag’s men returned to winning ways.

The Scotland international was introduced with roughly five minutes to go and it looked like United would be leaving the pitch with their tails between their legs once more.

The Reds were heading towards a third consecutive home defeats in the league – something that has not happened since 1979. Instead, McTominay’s quickfire double set Old Trafford on fire and Ten Hag is given breathing room going into the international break.

Man United Player Ratings

Andre Onana – 7
Some may blame him for Brentford’s goal but that is unfair. He made several good stops to keep United in the game.

Diogo Dalot – 5
Countless failed crosses, not his best outing.

Victor Lindelof – 5 
Should have done better with Brentford’s goal.

Harry Maguire – 7
Solid throughout and got the crucial assist for the winner.

Jonny Evans – 6
Calm and composed, did not look out of place at all.

Casemiro – 4
He has enjoyed a good goalscoring start to the season but his overall playing is lacking compared to the colossal figure we saw last season. Came off at half-time.

Sofyan Amrabat – 6
He won’t be criticised for a lack of effort, that’s for sure. Played in midfield for the first time since signing and hopefully, that’s where he stays from now on.

Mason Mount – 6
Still trying ever so hard but it’s not falling into place just yet. Patience.

Bruno Fernandes – 6
Involved in all of United’s attacking moves, as usual.

Marcus Rashford – 5
Needs a lift-off game. Unfortunately, this wasn’t it.

Rasmus Hojlund – 6
Still waiting for his first Premier League goal after scoring three in the Champions League. Once that comes, the floodgates will open.

Substitutes
Christian Eriksen – 6
Wasteful in possession at times but United’s attacking play improved with him on the pitch.

Antony – 6
Added a great spark to the game.

Alejandro Garnacho – 8
Continues to be a gamechanger when he comes on. Heavily involved in the crucial equaliser.

Anthony Martial – 6
Occupied the right spaces to involve other players in the final phase of the game.

Scott McTominay – 10
He only came on in the 87th minute but with that ending, you still get a perfect score.
