Manchester United faced off against Burnley earlier this evening as they looked to pick up a positive result on their home turf. Mason Greenwood broke the deadlock around the 48-minute-mark as he converted from Marcus Rahsford’s cross. James Tarkowski scored the equalising goal for the visitors a couple of minutes later, but two late goals from Greenwood and Edinson Cavani secured a comfortable 3-1 victory for the Red Devils tonight.
Let’s take a look at how each Manchester United player fared during the clash against the Clarets.
Dean Henderson – 6.5/10
The English shot-stopper made some important saves tonight but came off his line unnecessarily on a couple of occasions.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 6.5/10
The Englishman lost his marker inside the box which led to the equaliser for Burnley. However, he made some crucial recoveries to help his side at the back.
Victor Lindelof – 6.5/10
The Swedish centre-back had a couple of nervy moments at the back, but he made some important tackles and blocks tonight. He paired well with Maguire throughout.
Harry Maguire – 6/10
The skipper could have done better to prevent Tarkowski from finding the back of the net around the 50-minute-mark. He lost some crucial aerial duels as well.
Luke Shaw – 7/10
The English full-back hardly took any part in the attacking proceeding tonight but he put up a decent performance overall.
Scott McTominay – 7/10
The Scottish midfielder stayed central and shielded the back four well throughout the game. He made some important challenges to win the ball back at the centre of the park.
Fred – 6.5/10
The Brazilian midfielder was solid defensively but lacked the attacking intent going forward. He was replaced at half time in order to accommodate Edinson Cavani.
Paul Pogba – 7.5/10
The Frenchman sprayed some important passes forward in the first half but had to take up a more defensive role in the second forty-five minutes. Nonetheless, he got himself an assist in the 84th minute.
Mason Greenwood – 9/10
The youngster scored two important goals tonight to win all the 3 points for his side. His movement in and around the box made things easier for his team.
Bruno Fernandes – 6.5/10
The Portuguese playmaker failed to put up his best performance as most of his passes failed to find the intended target. He gave the ball away on a number of occasions as well.
Marcus Rashford – 8/10
The Englishman’s slick movement in the opposition half created a lot of problems for the Burnley defenders. He combined exceptionally well with Luke Shaw in the second half and even got himself an assist.
Edinson Cavani – 7/10
The Uruguayan striker got his name on the scoresheet in the 93rd minute as he converted from a simple tap-in.
Donny Van De Beek – 7/10
The Dutchman got himself a much-needed assist in the dying moments of the match.
