Player Ratings : Manchester United vs Club Brugge

Full Time: Manchester United 5(6) vs Club Brugge 0(1)

Sergio Romero: 6

United’s keeper barely had anything to do in this game. He had an early wobble when Brugge had one of their only chances but apart from that could’ve been left back in the changing rooms as far as we were aware.


Aaron Wan-Bissaka: 6

In recent times, United’s attacking output relied heavily on its full-backs, but against the Belgian side, this was not the case. The attackers were on top form, so the Englishman didn’t really need to have any input. As far as defending was concerned, there wasn’t a great lot for him to defend.

Eric Bailly: 7

Eric continued his good run of form for the Red’s as he put in a brilliant all-round performance. He is slowly cementing his place in the backline as he provides more competition for Lindelof’s place in the team.

Harry Maguire: 6

Similar to Romero, Maguire had an early shaky start where he nearly allowed David Okereke to break through for Brugge. However, after this, he didn’t have a very busy night and remained steady.

Luke Shaw: 8

Luke Shaw again continues his excellent run of performances in a red shirt. Played at left-back against Brugge instead of his usual recent position of the left-sided centre back, but still hardly but a foot wrong all night. Shaw now must surely be pushing for a place in Gareth Southgate’s squad in the summer for the European Championship.


Scott McTominay: 8

Scott McTominay had a great game back for United in his first start for two months. There had been a lot of speculation that McTominay had been training hard whilst recovering from being injured and this would prove to be true as he didn’t seem as though he’d missed a beat. He also scored his fourth goal this season.

Fred: 9

The Brazilian was superb in the holding midfield position and he registered his first assist of the season. He then followed this up with his first goal of the season and then his second in a performance United fans have been crying out for from Fred.

Bruno Fernandes: 9

The new United signing seemed absolutely magnificent again, everything he touched seemed to create a chance. Brought off early in the second half when the game was won to rest him for upcoming fixtures including the likes of Man City and Everton.


Juan Mata: 8

Mata seemed a completely different player with the midfield support around him against Brugge.; He had the defensive support in McTominay and Fred and then the creativity of Bruno Fernandes to help excel in a game he normally would disappear in. One of his best performances this season without a doubt.

Daniel James: 7

Won the penalty for the Reds and was quite quiet through the first half with little spells here and there. He was substituted at half time.

Odion Ighalo: 8

Bagged his first goal for his boyhood club after a beautiful bit of build-up play started by Fernandes. You could see how much the goal meant to him and his family when he scored as he celebrated by revealing a picture of his late sister on an under layer who was also reportedly a Manchester United fan.
