Manchester United entertained Aston Villa at Old Trafford earlier today as they hoped to secure a positive result at home in the Premier League. The Red Devils made a decent start to the game and scored the opening goal in the 39th minute when Bruno Fernandes found the back of the net. Erik ten Hag’s men managed to get to the half-time interval with a 1-0 lead.

The Mancunian giants sat on their lead well in the second 45 minutes and secured a narrow 1-0 win at the Theatre of Dreams.

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

GK: David de Gea – 6.5/10

The Spanish keeper had to make just one save in the game and earned a comfortable clean sheet at Old Trafford.

RB: Diogo Dalot – 7.5/10

Dalot did his fair share of defending and made two good runs with the ball.

CB: Victor Lindelof – 7/10

He defended his lines well and managed to make one crucial goal-line clearance in the second half.

CB: Luke Shaw – 7/10

Shaw proved himself to be a rock at the back and will be quite satisfied with the clean sheet.

LB: Tyrell Malacia – 7/10

Malacia was a positive influence at both ends of the field and was accurate with his passing.

CDM: Casemiro – 8/10

The Brazilian talent offered decent protection for his teammates at the back and was a threat going forward.

RW: Bruno Fernandes – 8/10

He worked hard in both halves and scored the only goal of the game in the 39th minute.

CM: Marcel Sabitzer – 6.5/10

Sabitzer showed a few flashes of what he is capable of but didn’t threaten the Aston Villa goal.

CM: Christian Eriksen – 6.5/10

He had a few bright moments in the game but failed to too many clear-cut chances in the final third.

LM: Jadon Sancho – 7/10

Sancho showed some flashes of what he can do on the left flank but there was no goal for him today.

ST: Marcus Rashford – 6.5/10

Rashford caused a few headaches for the opposition defenders but was a bit untidy with his passing.


RW: Antony – 6/10

He was a threat in the final third.

CM: Fred – 6/10

Fred added some energy to ten Hag’s midfield.

ST: Anthony Martial – N/A

He hardly had any time to influence the contest.

CB: Harry Maguire – N/A

Maguire came on for the final few minutes of the game.
