Manchester United Players Rated In Their Comforting Win Against Bournemouth: Jones Shines With 8/10

Manchester United shrugged off their derby disappointment with a slender 1-0 win against Bournemouth at the Old Trafford. A 25th-minute strike from Romelu Lukaku was enough for the host as they continued their quest for the Premier League title.

Jose Mourinho made a number of changes as both Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay made a start in the starting lineup. United made a spirited start and they didn’t have to wait long for the goal.

Anthony Martial made a very overwhelming run down the left flank and fed the ball to Juan Mata who put a pinpoint cross to the Cherries box only to find Lukaku who rarely missed those gilt-edged chances to score.

The Belgian international rose high to meet Mata’s cross and thus ended his long goal drought. United remained in the second position and maintained their 11 points gap from leader Manchester City who blanked Swansea City 4-0.

Let’s have a look at how Manchester United player’s figured in this match.

David De Gea- 7

Came to the rescue a number of times. He was quite active in the goal as usual as he denied the Cherries players a number of times including a brilliant save of Charlie Daniels.

Antonio Valencia- 7

Worked tirelessly on the right flank and was quite effective defensively.

Phil Jones- 8

A commanding display in the defence. His brilliant tackle to block the attempt of Josh King was one of the highlighted points of the match.

Chris Smalling- 7

Continued his good run in the United defence as he complemented well Jones in the backline.

Luke Shaw- 7

Impressed well with his first start of the season. Combined well with Martial and offered attacking prospects.

Scott McTominay- 6.5

Hustled initially in the middle of the pitch but as the match went on he settled quite well.

Nemanja Matic- 7

Another top-notch performance from the Serbian as he kept the balance quite good.

Anthony Martial- 6

The French youngster had a number of chance to bring down the Cherries defence but couldn’t dig up much.

Juan Mata-7

He spread out the play and also contributed to the goal by delivering an inch-perfect cross to Lukaku.

Jesse Lingard- 6

Didn’t do enough as he slipped away another chance.

Romelu Lukaku- 7

Fought hard upfront and would be happy as he struck his ninth goal in the Premier League.

Substitutes-

Marcus Rashford- 7

Was a real threat down the left channel.

Ander Herrera- 6

Made a good impact.

Ashley Young- N/A
