Manchester United entertained Leeds United at Old Trafford earlier tonight as they hoped to earn a positive result at home in the Premier League. The Red Devils made a poor start to the game and conceded the opening goal in the first minute when Wilfried Gnonto found the back of the net for the visitors. Man United failed to mount a comeback and went into the half-time break 1-0 down on the scoreline.

Raphael Varane scored an unfortunate own goal in the 48th minute. However, Marcus Rashford got a goal back for Erik ten Hag’s side just 14 minutes later before Jadon Sancho equalised for Man United in the 70th minute. The match ended with the two teams playing out a 2-2 draw at the Theatre of Dreams.

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

GK: David de Gea – 6/10

The Spaniard didn’t have a save to make in the game but won’t be pleased after conceding two goals tonight.

RB: Diogo Dalot – 8/10

He did his fair share of defending and was a real threat going forward. Dalot ended the game with an assist to his name.

CB: Raphael Varane – 5.5/10

The French talent looked shaky at the back but was a menace inside the Leeds penalty box.

CB: Lisandro Martinez – 7/10

The Argentine defender was a solid presence inside his half and was good on the ball as well.

LB: Luke Shaw – 6.5/10

He had a few bright moments in the game but failed to be decisive in the final third.

CM: Fred – 6.5/10

CM: Marcel Sabitzer – 7/10

He anchored the midfield well and created some decent chances in the final third.

RW: Marcus Rashford – 8/10

Rashford was a constant menace in the final third and scored a good goal after the hour mark to help his team make a comeback.

CAM: Bruno Fernandes – 7/10

He worked hard at both ends of the field but failed to register a goal tonight.

LW: Alejandro Garnacho – 6.5/10

Garnacho made a few dangerous runs with the ball but lacked quality in the final third.

ST: Wout Weghorst – 6/10

He had a couple of lively moments but never looked like he would score.


LW: Jadon Sancho – 7.5/10

Sancho came off the bench and scored the all-important equaliser.

RW: Facundo Pellistri – 6/10

He added some energy to ten Hag’s attack.

LB: Tyrell Malacia – N/A

He came on for the final few minutes of the contest.
