Manchester United clashed heads with Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano earlier tonight as they focused on securing a good result on the road. The Red Devils made a poor start to the game and conceded the opening goal in the seventh minute when Joao Felix scored with a brilliant header. Ralf Rangnick’s men failed to come up with a response and went into the half-time break 1-0 down on the scoreline.

Anthony Elanga finally managed to equalise for Man United in the 80th minute as the contest finished with the Mancunian outfit earning a hard-fought 1-1 draw at the Spanish capital.

Let’s take a look at how each Man United player performed during the clash against Atletico Madrid.

GK: David de Gea – 6/10

The Spaniard hardly had a save to make in the game but will be disappointed after conceding an early goal.

RB: Victor Lindelof – 6.5/10

Lindelof tried his best to keep the Atletico Madrid attackers frustrated and was tidy with his passing.

CB: Raphael Varane – 6.5/10

He cleared the danger when required and was a dominant presence in the air. Still, there was no clean sheet for him tonight.

CB: Harry Maguire – 6.5/10

Maguire was strong in the air and didn’t mind putting his foot through the ball when required.

LB: Luke Shaw – 6/10

He made a few important interceptions but got replaced in the 66th minute.

CM: Fred – 6/10

Fred struggled to get a foothold in the game and produced a disjointed display at the centre of the park.

CM: Paul Pogba – 6/10

The Frenchman made one key chance going forward but lasted for just 65 minutes before he was replaced.

RW: Marcus Rashford – 6/10

He had a couple of bright moments in the game but never looked like he would score.

CAM: Bruno Fernandes – 7/10

Fernandes worked hard defensively and fashioned two good chances in the final third. He has got an assist for setting up Elanga’s goal.

LW: Jadon Sancho – 6/10

The English talent offered very little in the final third and got substituted in the 81st minute.

ST: Cristiano Ronaldo – 6/10

He had a couple of shots but never like he would score tonight.

Substitutes:

CM: Nemanja Matic – 6/10

The Serbian talent offered some steel to Rangnick’s midfield.

RB: Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 6/10

He was solid at the back.

LB: Alex Telles – 6/10

Telles made one promising run with the ball.

RW: Anthony Elanga – 7/10

He made an immediate impact by scoring a late goal which rescued a draw for Man United.

CAM: Jesse Lingard – N/A

Lingard hardly got any minutes to warrant a rating.
