Player Ratings : Bournemouth VS Manchester United

David De Gea: 6

David De Gea had a busier game than he would’ve hoped but he did pull off some good saves. Ultimately, his inability to dominate his box led to the Bournemouth goal.

Defence

Aaron Wan Bissaka: 5

In terms of his tackling, I’m sure he won all of his tackles attempted. However, along with De Gea, and Lindelof he was at fault for the goal, getting spun like that is unforgivable.

Victor Lindelof: 5

In terms of his all round play boy Maguire and Lindelof did well to keep King and Wilson quiet. However, he was to blame for King’s goal, he did nothing to help out his teammate and in the replay you can see him literally running away. Very poor in my opinion.

Harry Maguire: 6

Not only did he dominate in the air and keep Callum Wilson quiet, Maguire’s runs into midfield led to the few chances we did create.

Ashley Young: 6

Didn’t put a foot wrong but once again as a captain you need more from him. Average performance from Ashley Young.

Midfield

Scott Mctominay: 6

In the first 10 minutes McTominay showed some good signs but he seemed to tire towards the end. Loose passes and poor decision making summed up his second half.

Fred: 6

Again, similar to McTominay his engine ran low very quickly which ultimately costed us a result today.

Andreas Pereira: 5

Unlike, McTominay and Fred, Pereira didn’t start midweek against Chelsea so his energy levels after the first 20 minutes were unacceptable. He should’ve scored a brilliantly invited ball from James. Not a good performance from the Brazilian.

Attack

Marcus Rashford: 6

A largely anonymous performance, and played too far away from Martial so the link up play wasn’t as fluid. Like some of the others today, it was perhaps due to his energy levels.

Daniel James: 6

Started the game extremely well, running down the channels and linking up with Pereira and Martial. But due to a collectively lacklustre second half he was unable to get on the ball as often to make things happen.

Anthony Martial: 6

Like James, Martial was looking sharp in the first half an was involved in some formidable football early on in the game. In the second half, I’m not even sure he came out it was that bad, he barely got on the ball to make things happen.

Substitutes

Jesse Lingard: 4

Mason Greenwood: 6

Brandon Williams: 6.5
