Manchester United faced off against Tottenham Hotspur earlier tonight as they looked to pick up a positive result away from home. Heung-Min Son broke the deadlock around the 40-minute-mark as he capitalized on Victor Lindelof’s mistake to make it 1-0 for the hosts. However, an extraordinary performance from the visitors in the second half ended up changing the fate of the game as they scored three goals to secure a thumping 3-1 victory. The defeat has left Spurs’ Champions League hopes hanging by a thread.
Let’s take a look at how each Manchester United player fared during the clash against the Lilywhites.
Dean Henderson – 7/10
The English shot-stopper was very alert between the sticks tonight. Besides making some crucial saves, he was quick in coming off the line to clear the ball whenever required.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 7.5/10
The English right-back could have stayed tighter to Son to prevent the first goal of the game. Nonetheless, he made several important challenges and tackles to stop the opposition frontmen from creating menace down the right flank.
Victor Lindelof – 6/10
The Swedish centre-back’s mistake led to a clear goal-scoring opportunity for Heung-Min Son. Besides, he didn’t look to be in complete control of certain situations, especially when under pressure.
Harry Maguire – 7/10
The skipper put up a strong performance at the back tonight. He made numerous crucial blocks and tackles to prevent Mourinho’s men from finding the back of the net.
Luke Shaw – 7/10
The England international made some good attacking runs down the left flank, but his crosses didn’t create much menace for the opposition defence.
Paul Pogba – 9/10
The Frenchman was at his best throughout the ninety minutes. He controlled the tempo of the entire match and sprayed some defence-splitting passes upfield. Got himself an assist in the added time as well.
Scott McTominay – 6.5/10
The Scottish midfielder was very aggressive at the centre of the park. He won the ball back on a number of occasions but could have been sent off twice tonight.
Fred – 8/10
The Brazilian international grabbed the equaliser for the visitors as he perfectly executed half a dozen short passes before slotting the ball past Hugo Lloris. However, he looked a bit sloppy in possession at times.
Marcus Rashford – 6.5/10
The Englishman wasn’t given a lot of space to work with but made the most of whatever was available to him.
Bruno Fernandes – 6.5/10
The Portuguese playmaker failed to produce his best tonight as he struggled to execute certain passes and kept losing the ball time and again.
Edinson Cavani – 9/10
The Uruguayan striker was full of energy going forward. He took up all the right positions in the box, coordinated well with his teammates, and finally got his reward around the 79-minute-mark as he headed the ball past Hugo Lloris to put United in the lead.
Mason Greenwood – 9/10
Impact substitute. Turned the game on its head as he got himself an assist and a goal after coming on in the 72nd minute.
