Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s stuttering Manchester United side picked up a much-needed victory as they beat Norwich City by a 3-1 scoreline. Goals from Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay were enough to give the Red Devils their third win of the Premier League campaign. Although the Canaries fought back and scored a goal through Onel Hernandez, the challenge proved to be too much for the young Norwich side to deal with.
Here are the Manchester United player ratings from their win Vs Norwich City:
David De Gea – 6.5
Was helpless with the Canaries’ goal but did well to stop a bunch of efforts in the opening period. Will have to work harder if he wants to regain the Spanish number one spot.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka 6.5
The youngster put in some excellent last-ditch tackles and made some shrewd interventions as well. Struggled to deal with Hernandez at times in the first half, but improved in the second.
Victor Lindelof – 6
The Swedish international didn’t have the best of outings as Teemu Pukki didn’t give him a moment of peace. Did well maintaining United’s defensive structure.
Harry Maguire – 7.5
The Englishman put in a steady performance at Carrow Road and did well whenever he was called into action. Possibly one of his strongest performances in a United shirt yet.
Ashley Young – 4
Struggled to deal with the blistering pace of Max Aarons on the left-flank and even got booked for a nasty tackle. It’s slowly becoming clear that the Englishman isn’t very ‘young’ anymore.
Scott McTominay – 9
The youngster was, far and away, the best player on the pitch, further proving that Jose Mourinho knew what he was doing. Sensational display by a Mancunian, destined for great things.
Andreas Pereira – 7
Played in the hole just behind Rashford and did well to get himself involved in the play. Didn’t have the impact he would’ve hoped for, but a better performance than usual from the youngster.
Fred – 6
Lost possession cheaply on multiple occasions with no signs of improvement in sight. Did a better job of keeping the United midfield ticking on the night, but still has a long way to go.
Daniel James – 8.5
Easily the Reds’ most influential player on the pitch, the teenager was on show yet again today. He played vital parts in all of United’s goals – further highlighting his significance to this team.
Anthony Martial – 7
Scored a very classy looking goal on the night but the fact that he could’ve had a hat-trick is sure to haunt him. Missed from less than 5 yards out, albeit by a brilliant Tim Krul save, and missed a penalty as well.
Marcus Rashford – 6.5
Another United player who missed a penalty on the night, Rashford did well to take his goal. He beat the offside trap on multiple occasions but needs to work on his finishing.
Mason Greenwood – 6
Came on for the final 15 minutes and showed himself in a pretty good light.
Jesse Lingard – NA
Didn’t have time to make an impact.
James Garner – NA
Didn’t have time to make an impact
