Manchester United faced off against Real Sociedad at the Reale Arena earlier this evening as they looked to earn a good result on the road in the UEFA Europa League. The Red Devils made a bright start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 17th minute courtesy of Alejandro Garnacho’s powerful strike. Erik ten Hag’s men went into the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.

Both sides canceled each other out in the second half as the contest finished with Man United grinding out a 1-0 win away from home.

Let’s take a look at how each Manchester United player fared during the match against Real Sociedad.

GK: David de Gea – 8/10

The Spanish keeper made a few important saves at the back and earned a well-deserved clean sheet this evening.

RB: Diogo Dalot – 7.5/10

Dalot gave a good account of himself on the defensive third of the field but offered very little in the final third.

CB: Victor Lindelof – 7.5/10

He performed his defensive duties well and was strong in the air. Lindelof didn’t give the ball away during his time on the field.

CB: Lisandro Martinez – 7.5/10

Martinez won his fair share of aerial duels and earned the ball back a few times as well.

RW: Bruno Fernandes – 7/10

He engineered two good chances in the final third and made a couple of decent runs with the ball as well.

CAM: Donny van de Beek – 6/10

The talented playmaker was quiet for most of his time on the field.

LW: Alejandro Garnacho – 7.5/10

Garnacho found the back of the net with a powerful shot in the 17th minute.

He added some steel to ten Hag’s midfield.

ST: Marcus Rashford – 6/10

Rashford offered very little after coming off the bench.

CB: Harry Maguire – N/A

He didn’t get enough time to make an impact.
