Manchester United entertained Brentford at Old Trafford earlier tonight as they hoped to secure a positive result at home in the Premier League. The Red Devils made a good start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 27th minute when Marcus Rashford found the back of the net for the home team. The Mancunian side managed to get to the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.

Erik ten Haag’s men controlled the game well in the second half and earned a narrow 1-0 win in front of their home supporters.

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

GK: David de Gea – 6.5/10

The Spanish keeper made one good save in the second half and secured an easy clean sheet at Old Trafford tonight.

RB: Diogo Dalot – 7/10

He didn’t do much wrong at the back and made one key chance going forward.

CB: Raphael Varane – 7.5/10

Varane cleared the danger when needed and had a couple of bright moments going forward.

CB: Lisandro Martinez – 7.5/10

The Argentine defender gave a good account of himself on the defensive end of the field and was good on the ball as well.
