Manchester United clashed heads with Manchester City at the Etihad earlier this evening, hoping to pick up all three points on their home turf. Manchester City broke the deadlock in the 60th minute as Jack Grealish put the ball past de Gea from Kevin de Bruyne’s cross. However, the hosts scored two quick goals within four minutes to turn the game on its head and secure a 2-1 victory.
Let’s look at how each Manchester United player fared during the clash against the Citizens.
Manchester United Players Rated In Win Vs Manchester City
David de Gea 7
A commanding display from the Spanish shot-stopper.
Luke Shaw 8
A phenomenal performance from the England international taking into account that he was not playing in his natural position.
Raphael Varane 7
The France international paired well with Luke Shaw to contain Haaland over the course of the ninety minutes. An immense presence at the heart of United’s defence.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka 7
Stepped up in the second half of the match when his team needed him the most.
The transfer makes more and more sense with each passing game. An unreal range of passing, he managed to get the assist for Bruno Fernandes’ goal.
Shielded the backline well and put in some crunching tackles in the middle of the park.
Marcus Rashford 9
The Englishman missed a couple of chances in the first half of the match but kept his goal-scoring form going by scoring the winning goal of the night.
Christian Eriksen 6
Bringing on Alejandro Garnacho for Christian Eriksen opened up the game.
Bruno Fernandes 8
Manchester United’s engine in the middle of the park. Brilliant presence of mind to continue the run and take the shot that led to the equalising goal.
Anthony Martial 6
The Frenchman was too slow to cause any menace to the City defence.
He added energy to United’s attack.
Alejandro Garnacho 8
A brilliant turn and pass to Marcus Rashford that led to the winning goal. The entire game opened up once he stepped on the pitch.
Harry Maguire N/A
Scott McTominay N/A
Lisandro Martinez N/A
