Manchester United faced off against Granada earlier tonight as they looked to pick up a positive result and proceed into the semi-finals of the UEFA Europa League. Edinson Cavani broke the deadlock around the 6-minute-mark as he scored a sublime volley to extend United’s aggregate lead. The Red Devils dominated the game throughout the ninety minutes; however, a Jesus Vallejo own goal in added time wrapped up the tie for the home side. With a thumping 4-0 aggregate win over the Spanish side, Manchester United have secured a place in the last four of the competition.

Let’s take a look at how each Manchester United player fared during the clash against the Nazaries.

David de Gea – 7/10

The Spanish shot-stopper was more of a spectator tonight. He looked fairly comfortable in between the sticks for the majority of the game but had to make two important saves in the last ten minutes.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 7/10

The English full-back put up a solid performance yet again as he prevented the Granada frontmen from creating menace down the right flank.

Victor Lindelof – 7/10

The Swedish defender paired well with Tuanzebe to keep things tidy at the back. He made some crucial blocks and interceptions as well.

Axel Tuanzebe – 7.5/10

Tuanzebe was hardly put under pressure tonight, but he did well to deal with whatever was thrown at him.

Alex Telles – 8.5/10

He delivered some quality crosses into the box, two of which resulted in goals eventually.

Nemanja Matic – 7/10

The Serbian international shielded the back-four really well and wasn’t afraid of driving forward whenever necessary.

Paul Pogba – 8/10

The Frenchman got himself an assist early in the game. He was simply too good for the opposition at times in the first half.

Fred – 7.5/10

The Brazilian midfielder was rather aggressive at the centre of the park as he put in a number of strong challenges to win the ball back for his side. He helped his team dominate the midfield proceedings for the majority of the match.

Mason Greenwood – 6/10

The Englishman lost the ball during United’s counter-attacks on several occasions. Besides, it never looked like he had a goal in him tonight.

Bruno Fernandes – 7/10

The Portuguese playmaker sprayed some important passes forward but lacked the clinical touch in front of the goal.

Edinson Cavani – 8/10

The Uruguayan striker opened the scoreline tonight to extend United’s aggregate lead. He worked tirelessly to get himself on the end of crosses.

SUBSTITUTES:

Donny van de Beek – 6/10

The Dutchman replaced Paul Pogba at half-time but he failed to create anything significant.

Daniel James – 6/10

The Welshman provided the hosts with some extra energy going forward.

Juan Mata – 6.5/10

The Spaniard added solidity to United’s midfield.

Amad Diallo – N/A

It was too late when he came on.

Brandon Williams – N/A

He replaced Wan-Bissaka in the 82nd minute.
