James Gets 9, Fred With 8 | Manchester United Players Rated In Comfortable Win Vs Brighton

Manchester United entertained Brighton and Hove Albion at Old Trafford earlier today hoping to pick up maximum points in front of their home supporters. The Red Devils began the contest on the front foot and took the lead in the 17th minute, courtesy of Andreas Pereira. The Seagulls midfielder Davy Propper scored an unfortunate own goal just two minutes later to put his team in a world of trouble. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men went into the half-time break with a healthy two-goal advantage.

Graham Potter’s players put up more of a fight in the second half and got a goal back through Lewis Dunk’s header. However, Marcus Rashford restored his side’s two-goal lead just two minutes later. The match ended with the final scoreline of 3-1 in favour of the Mancunian outfit.

Let’s take a look at how each Man United player performed during the match against the Seagulls.

GK: David De Gea – 6/10

The Spanish keeper was hardly tested in the first half but couldn’t do much to save Dunk’s header in the second.

RB: Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 7/10

The ex-Crystal Palace right-back was a decent outlet for his side going forward. He defended well at the back to cap off another fine display for his new employers.

CB: Victor Lindelöf – 7/10

He passed the ball accurately and put in an assured shift in defence as well. Lindelof seems to have improved his performances in recent weeks much to the delight of Solskjaer.

CB: Harry Maguire – 7/10

The English centre-back was a commanding presence inside his own half and did well to keep things solid at the back.

LB: Brandon Williams – 7/10

The Red Devils starlet performed well under pressure and put in a confident display in the left-back position.

CM: Scott McTominay – 7/10

McTominay was always looking to be adventurous with his passing and put in a matured shift at the centre of the park.

CM: Fred – 8/10

The Brazilian midfield ace put in one his best performances in a Man United shirt. He created some decent chances going forward and looked like he belonged in Solskjaer’s first-team.

RM: Daniel James – 9/10

The Welsh youngster was head and shoulders above everyone else on the field. He was a constant menace for the Seagulls defenders as they found it hard to deal with his dangerous passes in the final third.

CAM: Andreas Pereira – 6/10

He got lucky with his goal when his attempt was deflected into the opposition net. However, Pereira was at fault for not coping with Dunk’s threat in the lead-up to the Brighton goal.

LM: Marcus Rashford – 6.5/10

The English speedster scored one but should have got a few more. He needs to be more clinical in the offensive end of the pitch.

ST: Anthony Martial – 7/10

The French striker linked up play well with others and got two assists to show for his efforts. Even though he didn’t score, it was a good day’s work for him.

Substitutes:

CAM: Jesse Lingard – 5/10

He squandered a decent opportunity to score.

CB: Marcos Rojo – N/A

The Argentine defender came off the bench to see out the win for the home side.

LM: Mason Greenwood – N/A

The Man United youngster came on to run the clock down for his team.
