Manchester United locked horns with Leeds United at Elland Road earlier today as they looked to grind out a positive result on their travels in the Premier League. The Red Devils made a slow start to the game and were held to a scoreless draw at the half-time break.

Marcus Rashford finally opened the goal-scoring for Man United in the 80th minute with a solid header before Alejandro Garnacho got his name on the scoresheet just five minutes later. The contest ended with the Red Devils earning an impressive 2-0 win away from home.

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

GK: David de Gea – 8/10

The Spanish keeper gave away the ball cheaply at times and made multiple crucial saves for his team. He will be quite satisfied with the clean sheet tonight.

RB: Diogo Dalot – 7/10

He didn’t do much wrong at the back and was unfortunate to hit the post.

CB: Harry Maguire – 7.5/10

Maguire had some nervy moments but deserves credit for clearing the danger when needed.

CB: Luke Shaw – 8/10

He gave a good account of himself on the defensive end of the field and was a threat at the other end as well. Shaw ended the game with an assist to his name.

Malacia fought for the loose ball well but didn’t offer much going forward.

CM: Marcel Sabitzer – 7.5/10

He anchored the midfield with conviction and was a strong presence in the air.

CM: Fred – 7.5/10

The Brazilian talent offered decent protection for his teammates at the back and made one key chance in the final third.

RW: Jadon Sancho – 6/10

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

CAM: Bruno Fernandes – 7.5/10

Fernandes was a constant menace in the final third but failed to find the back of the net today.

LW: Marcus Rashford – 7/10

Rashford caused a few headaches for the opposition defenders and did well to get his name on the scoresheet in the 80th minute.

ST: Wout Weghorst – 7/10

He worked hard and created some meaningful openings for others around him in the final third. Weghorst has got an assist to show for his efforts.


CB: Lisandro Martinez – 6.5/10

The Argentine talent kept things solid at the back.

LW: Alejandro Garnacho – 7/10

Garnacho made an instant impact off the bench and scored in the 86th minute which killed the game off.

RB: Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 6/10

He didn’t do much wrong when defending inside his half.

RW: Anthony Elanga – N/A

Elanga didn’t get enough time to influence the game.
