Manchester United player ratings of the season so far: Luke Shaw, De Gea and Bruno Fernandes good – Dominic Booth


David De Gea

He seems to have shaken off his demons of 2019 and early 2020 and is back to something nearing his best form again. 7

Dean Henderson

He doesn’t really have the opportunities hoped for, but puts pressure on De Gea. Two great saves in League Cup matches, exhibited against Istanbul Basaksehir. 6

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

After a slow start, he showed a marked improvement going back and forth. Probably the best United defender. 7

Timothy Fosu-Mensah

He replaced the right back and elsewhere along the back line when needed, without really claiming the right to regular football. 5

Axel Tuanzebe

Enormously impressive when called from cold against PSG and has since deserved more chances, even though he was poor in Istanbul. 6

Harry Maguire

He appeared to have been hit by a nightmare summer break and the Mykonos crash, although scored in Newcastle and got better. 6

Victor Lindelof

United’s most reliable central defender. Best of the match against Chelsea and badly wrong against Basaksehir. A calming presence. 7

Eric Bailly

Impressed in the first Cup games to win a league seat, but then a disaster in the Spurs 6-1 defeat and has since been injured. 5

Luke Shaw

Hitting his straps under Solskjaer once again and clearly benefiting from the competition brought by Alex Telles’ signature. Consistent in an inconsistent side. 7

Brandon Williams

He fought for playing time and was a bit reckless in the two League Cup games he played in. 5


Arguably United’s best midfielder, even though he was poor in Arsenal’s defeat. He starts making a big impact on matches with his improved tackles and passing. 7

Many United players could leave in January

Nemanja Matic

He wasn’t given the regular starting role he got after the lockdown and showed why with a couple of shoddy screens. 5

Scott McTominay

Solskjaer loves his mentality and many United fans too. Good against Everton and Leipzig, but can still be inconsistent with his death. 6

Paul pogba

The perennial debate continues. How does United get the best of him? Or should they cut their losses, including flirting with Real Madrid? The bottom line is that Pogba has again disappointed. 4

Donny van de Beek

We have only seen it in flashes, but the signs are all positive after a debut goal against Palace. It certainly guarantees a smoother playing time. 6

Bruno Fernandes

It is a sign of his quality and high standards that Fernandes will believe he can do better, even though he still has six goals and four assists to his name this season. Talismanic. 8

Juan Mata |

Reliable Mr. Solskjaer called him into the league starting at 11 when he needed a response in Newcastle and Everton matches. It still offers quality on the ball. 6

Use the widget below to rate United players this season so far:

Daniel James

He started three times in the league and was replaced each time. Out of shape and needs a goal to boost his confidence. 3

Jesse Lingard

Two poor performances in the League Cup and injured since then. He doesn’t seem to make it into the top 11 even when he’s fit again. 5

Marcus Rashford

Inspiring off the pitch and United’s most consistent forward. Brilliant hat-trick against Leipzig and usually proactive in attack. Eight goals in all competitions. 7

United entered the international break by winning what was arguably the most important game of the season at Everton on Saturday.

The pressured Reds came from behind to beat the Toffees thanks to Bruno Fernandes’ brace and Edinson Cavani’s first goal for United.

United have a two-week hiatus with many of their stars heading into international service – we’ll keep an eye on how they all perform and preparations for their next Premier League match against West Brom.

Anthony Martial

Two goals in the Champions League but it was not close to the maximum. Tottenham’s red card and a zero in his Premier League tally don’t reflect well on the Frenchman. 4

Mason Greenwood

Nowhere near the heights he hit after the block, although the goal against Leipzig showed a typical clinical flair. It needs to find the coherent form. 5

Edinson Cavani

Almost scored with his first touch and then didn’t convince until he came home in injury time against Everton. It will probably get better. 5

Odion Ighalo

Cavani’s signing was the death knell for Ighalo United’s career. His scoring glut after signing in early 2020 seems like a distant memory. 4

Diogo Dalot played a League Cup match before leaving for Milan and Alex Telles only played 67 minutes, so neither was rated.
