Player Ratings: Manchester United vs PSG

Manchester United vs PSG 1-3 | Champions League | Player Ratings

David de Gea: 6

De Gea was seriously unlucky to concede 3 tonight. Back in the side after coming off at the break against Southampton, he made some pivotal saves at important moments.


Aaron Wan-Bissaka: 7

Aaron Wan-Bissaka applied that forward pressure we needed. Neymar was never going to track his runs so he had the freedom of the right-hand side. The right-back cut the ball back to Rashford for the deflected goal that was our equaliser. Defensively, Neymar largely avoided him, a compliment in my eyes.

Victor Lindelof: 6

The centre backs are getting quite a lot of backlash for their performances but in all honesty, despite being asleep for the first goal they had good games. Lindelof was part of that, played some decent long balls and was tidy at the back.

Harry Maguire: 6

Maguire was another who had a good game. It’s trendy to scapegoat the Manchester United skipper but he was impressive when he was progressing play. As United fought back in the second half, he almost bagged himself an assist as he headed down for Paul Pogba’s brilliant volley only just went over the bar.

Alex Telles: 5

Telles didn’t do anything extraordinary tonight. To begin with, he was a good outlet on the left-hand side, attempting to supply some balls into the box. However, perhaps due to fatigue as the game went on, he was missing in defensive areas. Not the Brazilians best night by any means.

Fred: 4

Silly, silly, silly Fred. Fred was outsmarted today. He was easily pulled into nonsense by Leandro Paredes and was lucky to escape a red card with a free head butting the Argentinian. From that moment as Scholes suggested the ref was looking to give Fred a red card. The moment he got shown red, we were chasing the game, making it almost impossible to get anything from the night.

Scott Mctominay: 6

Barring some poor defensive play in the opening minutes, Scott McTominay was tidy. Could Donny van de Beek have done what he did? Yes, but you have to commend him for not only his effort but also calming down the play.

Bruno Fernandes: 5

These are the sort of games where you would want your talisman to affect the game. He had a few good touches here and there but it wasn’t enough. Bruno Fernandes got lost in the midfield battle.

Marcus Rashford: 7

I’d go as far as saying Marcus Rashford was the best player on the pitch, in the minutes he played. From minute one the intensity and desire was there. Got his goal and was robbed of an assist by some woeful Martial finishing. We just hope his shoulder injury wasn’t too aggravated tonight.

Anthony Martial: 4

Anthony Martial had an overall decent game. Some of his link up play was good. But to have a number 9 on your back and not take your chances is unforgivable. At the moment he missed them, had he scored we would’ve been in the driving seat and Ole can only echo that sentiment. Disappointing.

Edinson Cavani: 6

Edinson Cavani’s big chance wasn’t as simple as Anthony Martial’s. His chip was sublime and unlucky to hit the bar. The striker’s link-up play with the one touches with the likes of Rashford and Bruno Fernandes was good to see. Unfortunate his efforts couldn’t be rewarded with a result.


Paul Pogba: 7

Donny van de Beek: 6

Mason Greenwood: 6

Odion Ighalo: n/a
