Man United player ratings: Shaw, Lindelof and Martial brilliant as Reds end Man City run

Dean Henderson

Commanded box and throw to Shaw sparked United’s second. Staked his claim for the number one spot with near flawless showing. 8


Aaron Wan-Bissaka

He often thrives at the Etihad and had the better of Sterling once again. Diligent defensive display. 7

Harry Maguire

Captain’s performance as he lead against one of the best frontlines across Europe. Brave playing a high line and produced number of crucial clearances. 8

Victor Lindelof

There was some concern from fans when the Swede was preferred to Bailly but Lindelof is a man for the big occasion. Read City’s attacks brilliantly and was courageous on the ball. 9

Luke Shaw

Superb goal will be a highlight of his career and it was preceded by his own attacking ambition. Proficient defensively and he keeps getting better going forward. 9

Fred

Often swarmed in the opening minutes but wasn’t unnerved and played with confidence and heart. 7

Scott McTominay

Imprecise in possession too often in first-half but became more composed and he was a nuisance for City who struggled to build sustained pressure. 7.

Bruno Fernandes

Maligned by some for record against ‘Big Six’ but delivered when it mattered. Showed bottle to score penalty and was the platform United attacked from. 7

Marcus Rashford

Assisted Shaw for crucial second and his desire to work back off the ball ultimately led to injury. 7

Daniel James

Saw little of the ball in the opening stages but his work rate has to be admired and he provided great support for Wan-Bissaka. 7

Anthony Martial

Won the penalty in the first-minute and that set the tone for his best performance in months. The only criticism can be his profligate finishing. 8

Substitutes

Mason Greenwood

Worked hard upon late entry. 6

Nemanja Matic
