Manchester United locked horns with Aston Villa at Old Trafford earlier this evening, hoping to pick up a positive result and build on their winning run in the league. Kortney Hause opened the score-line in the 88th minute as he put the ball past David de Gea following a set piece situation to hand his side a 1-0 lead. Just two minutes later, he committed a handball inside the penalty area, but Bruno Fernandes failed to convert from the spot as the visitors secured all three points.
Let’s take a look at how each Manchester United player fared during the clash against the Villans.
Manchester United Players Rated In Loss Vs Aston Villa
David de Gea 6
The Spanish shot-stopper made some decent saves to keep his side in the game.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka 7
The English right-back made some crucial interceptions and tackles to prevent the Villa frontmen from progressing down the flank. While he fared exceptionally well defensively, his attacking output was nowhere near impressive.
Raphael Varane 6
The Frenchman paired well with Maguire to keep things tidy at the back. He read a couple of situations exceptionally well and was quite dominant in the air.
Harry Maguire 5.5
The skipper had a few nervy moments at the back which could have cost his side quite early in the game. Nonetheless, he did a good job keeping the Villa attackers out for as long as he was on the pitch.
Luke Shaw N/A
The left-back had to be subbed off around the 30-minute-mark due to an unfortunate injury.
Scott McTominay 4.5
It was a decent outing from the Scottish international; however, he should have made himself available more often in the middle of the park. Given the position he was playing in, one would expect him to play a more crucial role during United’s attacking build-ups.
It’s surprising how the Brazilian midfielder had the audacity to laugh after squandering all those chances to take on target.
Paul Pogba 5
The France intentional tried his best to make things happen throughout the 90 minutes.
Bruno Fernandes 4
The Portuguese playmaker created more than a dozen goal-scoring chances for his teammates over the course of the game as he played some unreal passes to open up the opposition defense. However, he failed to convert from the most important kick of the game.
Cristiano Ronaldo 5
Perhaps, one should be asking why Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t step up to take the penalty.
Mason Greenwood 5
The 19-year-old attacker looked full of energy down the right flank but he lacked the finishing touch in the final third.
