Premier League giants Manchester United have effectively secured their qualification into the quarterfinals of the Europa League, after beating LASK by a whopping 5-0 scoreline on the night. The United romp was despite the fact that the fixture was being played in the Austrian club’s home stadium, meaning that they now have five away goals to carry back to Old Trafford. A comeback in this fixture is near impossible at this point, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be happy with the progress that his squad has been making over the last few weeks.
Manchester United Players Rated In Victory Vs LASK
Sergio Romero – 6
The experienced shot-stopper had little to do tonight because LASK were forced to take an extremely defensive approach to the game. Didn’t make any untoward mistakes over the ninety either.
Brandon Williams – 6.5
Looked comfortable at the back for most of the night, despite getting dribbled past on a couple of occasions. Tried to foray forward whenever the opportunities presented themselves.
Eric Bailly – 7.5
The Ivorian centre-half only recently made his way back into the side but continues to put in some excellent displays at the back. Made a couple of loose passes in the first half, but composed overall.
Harry Maguire – 7
The big Englishman commandeered the back-line effectively but could’ve probably done a better job getting his headers on target from many of the set-piece situations they got.
Luke Shaw – 7.5
Apart from a couple of wild swings under pressure in the first half, the full-back put in a solid shift down the flank and didn’t allow the LASK attackers too much running room on his side.
Scott McTominay – 7
The Scottish midfielder moved the ball around with great confidence today and added a substantial amount of sheer mettle to this United side. Protected the back-line efficiently.
Fred – 7
The Brazilian, like his midfield partner, put in a composed display in front of the United defence and made sure to keep the ball moving from side to side. Made some good forward runs too.
Juan Mata – 6.5
Finally got himself a goal in the late stages of the tie, but should’ve probably got on the scoresheet a lot earlier. Wasn’t as fluent as the rest of the United attackers tonight though.
Bruno Fernandes – 8
Another game, another assist for Bruno Fernandes. Played a peach of a ball to find Ighalo for the opener. Controlled the tempo of the game with his passing in the middle of the park.
Daniel James – 8
The speedster found it hard to produce any end product in the first half but came back looking a lot more determined in the second period. Did superbly to take his goal on the night.
Odion Ighalo – 8.5
Although Ole eventually substituted him, there’s no doubt that the Nigerian striker was the Red Devils’ best player tonight. Hold up play was sensational, and took his goal with great conviction.
Tahith Chong – NA
Didn’t have time to make an impact.
Andreas Pereira – NA
Scored a late goal, but didn’t have time to make an impact
Mason Greenwood – NA
Scored a late goal, but didn’t have time to make an impact.
