Manchester United faced off against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground earlier this evening as they looked to earn a positive result on their travels. The Red Devils made a decent start to the game and scored the opening goal in the 32nd minute when Antony found the back of the net. Man United went into the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.

Diogo Dalot killed the game off in the 76th minute as the contest finished 2-0 in favour of the Mancunian club.

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

GK: David de Gea – 7/10

The Spanish keeper hardly had a save to make in the game and secured an easy clean sheet on the road.

RB: Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 7.5/10

Wan-Bissaka performed his defensive duties well and had a few lively moments in the final third.

CB: Harry Maguire – 7.5/10

The English centre-back gave a good account of himself on the defensive end of the field

CB: Victor Lindelof – 7/10

He cleared the danger when needed and was good on the ball as well.

LB: Diogo Dalot – 7.5/10

Dalot came back to defend when needed and was lively going forward. He scored a good goal in the second half.

CM: Casemiro – 7/10

The Brazilian talent anchored the midfield well but offered very little in the final third.

CM: Christian Eriksen – 8/10

He earned the ball back twice and was a constant menace in the opponent’s half.

RW: Antony – 8/10

Antony was not shy of having a strike at goal and ended the game with a goal and an assist to his name.

CAM: Bruno Fernandes – 8.5/10

The Portugal international caused a lot of headaches for the opposition centre-backs. However, Fernandes failed to register a goal.

LW: Jadon Sancho – 6.5/10

Sancho showed some signs of what he is capable of but failed to find the back of the net.

ST: Anthony Martial – 6/10

He showed some signs of promise but was toothless in front of the opponent’s goal.


ST: Wout Weghorst – 6/10

He struggled to threaten the opponent’s goal.

CM: Fred – 6/10

Fred offered very little after coming off the bench.
