Manchester United have drawn 2-2 away to Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League and thus have not yet secured top 4 football this season. The game saw Manchester bottle a lead away from home, after being 2-0 up going into halftime thanks to goals from Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford. United started the first half very well, dominating the game and chances but dropped off in the second half allowing Spurs to get back into the game.
Here’s a rundown on how the players performed in the game with each player receiving a rating out of 10.
Goalkeeper and Defence
David de Gea: 6
Made some important saves in the first half while United was up but gave away possession with a long ball which led to Spurs’ equaliser.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka: 6.5
Was composed on the ball again and was good going forward, being dominant in the final third during the first half. Received a yellow and started to drop off in the second half though.Embed from Getty Images
Victor Lindelof: 7
Solid performance from the Swedish international again next to Luke Shaw in their new partnership. Helped quell some Spurs attacks in the second half and wasn’t at fault for the goals they scored.
Luke Shaw: 7
Shaw continues to show his class at center back and United are unbeaten this season when he starts there. His ability on the ball helps Martinez’s injury not feel as detrimental as it could’ve been.
Diogo Dalot: 5.5
Started at left back and eventually switched to right back when Malacia came on. Was at fault for Son’s equalising goal though which cost United the three points.
Christian Eriksen: 7
Eriksen was in great form and helped United dominate in the first half. His substitution after an hour was part of the reason United’s performance dropped off.Embed from Getty Images
Started to regain his form before his last suspension as he broke up attacks from Spurs and he played a role in the second goal.
Bruno Fernandes: 7.5
Was the driving force of United in the first half as their chief creator. A great performance but it saw him miss a glaring chance to make it 3-1 when he hit the crossbar.
Antony’s performance summed up the game for United. Was lively in the first half but struggled in the second half before he was eventually subbed off.
Marcus Rashford: 7.5
Rashford played very well, getting himself a goal and an assist, a brilliant performance at the 9. Was less effective when he switched to the wing.Embed from Getty Images
Jadon Sancho: 7
One of Sancho’s best performances this season. He was confident and effective with his link-up play in the final third and got United’s opener. Shouldn’t have been sent off.
Anthony Martial: 5
Tyrell Malacia: 4
Wout Weghorst: 4
