Manchester United clashed heads with Watford at Vicarage Road earlier this evening, hoping to pick up all three points away from home. The hosts tore apart United’s defence as Joshua King, Ismaila Sarr, Joao Pedro, and Emmanuel Bonaventure got their names on the scoresheet to secure a comfortable 4-1 win for the Hornets.

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

Manchester United Players Rated In Loss Vs Watford

David de Gea 6

The Spaniard saved a penalty (and it’s retake) early on in the game but went on to conceded four goals over the course of the ninety minutes.

Luke Shaw 4

The Englishman was useless defensively. Attacking wise, he had little to no clue on how to link up with Rashford down the left flank. A shambolic performance overall.

Harry Maguire 2 

Well, who needs a quality opponent when your own captain is playing against you. I don’t remember the last time Maguire got himself through a match without making foolish mistakes.

Victor Lindelof 3

The Sweden international literally had no idea on what to do with the ball when under pressure.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka 4 

The English full-back wasn’t at his best tonight as the Watford attackers could effortlessly penetrate via the right flank time and again.

Scott McTominay 4 

The Scottish international was shown a yellow card in the first-half. He was later replaced by Donny van de Beek.

Nemanja Matic 3 

The Serbian midfielder was way too sluggish at the centre of the park tonight. He gave away the ball on numerous occasions, even when he was under no real pressure.

Jadon Sancho 4 

The former Dortmund winger created a couple of good chances in the second-half but he needs to be a bit more patient while in possession of the ball.

Marcus Rashford 4 

Rashford made some good runs down the left flank but he had little to no support at his disposal.

Bruno Fernandes 3 

Fernandes had a bizarre start to the match and it would be fair to say that it remained the same till the very last.

Cristiano Ronaldo 5

The Portuguese striker failed to live up to his usual standards as he missed a lot of chances in the second-half of the game.

SUBSTITUTES (Manchester United Players Rated In Loss Vs Watford)

Donny van de Beek 6 

The Dutch international filled the away fans with hope just five minutes after coming on as he pulled one back from close range.

Anthony Martial 4 

The Frenchman didn’t add anything significant after coming on.

Diogo Dalot N/A

He came on in the 85th minute.

Jesse Lingard N/A

It was too late when he came on.
