Manchester United played hosts to Everton at Old Trafford earlier today hoping to continue their winning run in the Premier League. The Red Devils tried to make a good start to the game but ended up conceding in the 36th minute when Victor Lindelof conceded an unfortunate own goal. The Toffees hung on to their narrow lead to go into the half-time break with a narrow one-goal advantage.

The home side came out stronger in the second 45 minutes and finally managed to equalise when the substitute, Mason Greenwood came on to score in the 76th minute. The contest ended with both teams sharing the spoils after playing out an entertaining 1-1 draw.

Let’s take a look at how each Man United player performed during the contest versus the Toffees.

GK: David De Gea – 5/10

The Spanish custodian struggled to cope with the physicality of the opposition as they attacked in numbers during set-pieces. He was at fault for completing losing track of the ball in the lead-up to Lindelof’s own goal in the first half. 

RB: Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 6.5/10

The ex-Crystal Palace talent made a few important tackles for his side and looked solid at the back. However, he failed to provide a spark going forward.

CB: Victor Lindelof – 5/10

The Swedish centre-back was at the wrong place in the wrong time when he scored an unfortunate own goal after failing to react when the ball came through to him. He looked a bit nervy throughout the full 90 minutes, and his overall performance left a lot to be desired.

CB: Harry Maguire – 5/10

The English defender failed to command his own penalty area and lost track of Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin quite a few times during the game.

LB: Luke Shaw – 5/10

The former Southampton full-back struggled to keep up with the pace of the game and put in a lacklustre display down the left flank.

CM: Scott McTominay – 4.5/10

The Man United youngster was often outnumbered in midfield and struggled to deal with the threat of the Everton counter-attacks.

CM: Fred – 5.5/10

The Brazilian midfield ace worked hard for his team, but his deliveries lacked quality from dead-ball situations.

RM: Daniel James – 6/10

He started the encounter a bit slow and missed a couple of excellent chances to score. He refused to give up and came alive in the final quarter of the second half to set-up Greenwood and bag an assist.

CAM: Jesse Lingard – 4/10

Week after week, he keeps putting in underwhelming performances from the number ten position. He was once again poor today and struggled to make a positive impact in the opposition half.

LM: Marcus Rashford – 5/10

The English speedster squandered a few glorious opportunities to equalise. He tried too hard but ended up doing very little.

ST: Anthony Martial – 5.5/10

The French striker interchanged passes well with others around him. However, he failed to get his name on the scoresheet, which will disappoint him.


ST: Mason Greenwood – 7.5/10

The Red Devils youngster came off the bench to net the equaliser with an excellent finish.

CAM: Juan Mata – N/A

Not enough time to make an impact.
