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.

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.
