Leicester City vs Manchester United 0-2 | Player Ratings
David De Gea: 6
All eyes were on the Spaniard as a mistake would likely see Manchester United mess up their chance to return to the Champions League. Apart from a fumbled save in the first half that tempted Leicester’s Vardy, he was overly solid.
Aaron Wan Bissaka: 6
A very average and disappointing display from Wan Bissaka. Defensively, in contrast to recent games his defending was back to it’s best however going forward he was reluctant and insistent on playing the ball safely.
Victor Lindelof: 8
One word dominant. Not something we’d associate with Lindelof at times this season but he won every ball. Playing passes he looked confident and looked like the Iceman of last season. He was by far our best defender on the night.
Harry Maguire: 6.5
Our captain looked a little overwhelmed by the occasion of returning to his former employers. He looked shaky to begin with but grew into the game.
Brandon Williams: 5.5
There was a lot of effort, grit and determination in Williams’ performance but I felt we lacked an attacking outlet out there, similar to the opposite side.
Nemanja Matic: 7
Matic stepped up his performance compared to the West Ham game. Early on you could see that there was emphasis on him playing the ball forward. Defensively he was decent too.
Paul Pogba: 7
Pogba looked electric from start to finish, taking people on and displaying his range of passing. He is so vital to this Manchester United team because Bruno wasn’t great today. What we did good today came from Pogba but that will go under the radar.
Bruno Fernandes: 6
Bruno Fernandes is the sort of player we’ve lacked we’ve in more ways than one. He showed that today, he had a stinker of a performance but still managed to influence the game with a vital penalty. Top players shine through!
Marcus Rashford: 5
For me our poorest performer on the day. Didn’t seem at it. He played some good passes but was ultimately poor all round.
Mason Greenwood: 7
On the opposite side, Greenwood also wasn’t scintillating but was good. His harrying ultimately led to the penalty. His touches on the ball and weight of passing shows a maturity well beyond his years.
Anthony Martial: 7
He was roughed out of the game at times but as a striker you will be targeted as he was. His quickness always makes him a threat which is why he earned the penalty.
Jesse Lingard: 6.5
It was good to see Lingard back on the scoresheet. His energy coming on was vital at a time it was needed, hopefully he can kick on from here.
