Manchester United entertained Fulham at Old Trafford earlier this afternoon as they hoped to secure another good result at home in the Premier League. The Red Devils made a slow start to the game as they conceded the opening goal in the 19th minute when Kenny Tete found the back of the net. However, Jadon Sancho equalised for Man United in the 39th minute as the two sides went into the half-time break with a 1-1 scoreline.

Bruno Fernandes ended up netting the winning goal in the 69th minute as the contest finished 2-1 in favour of Erik ten Hag’s men.

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

GK: David de Gea – 7/10

The Spanish keeper made a couple of important saves at the back but didn’t do enough to keep a clean sheet.

RB: Diogo Dalot – 7/10

Dalot didn’t do much wrong when defending inside his half and was a threat going forward.

CB: Harry Maguire – 7/10

He cleared the danger when needed and earned the ball back twice for his side. Maguire was strong in the air as well.

CB: Victor Lindelof – 7/10

Lindelof gave a good account of himself on the defensive end of the pitch and was tidy with his passing.

LB: Tyrell Malacia – 7/10

He performed his defensive duties well and made two key chances from the left flank.

CM: Casemiro – 6.5/10

The Brazilian talent caused a few headaches for the opposition defenders but didn’t do enough to register a goal.

CM: Fred – 8/10

He got stuck in with a few crunching tackles and managed to engineer a handful of decent chances in the final third. Fred ended the game with an assist to his name.

RW: Jadon Sancho – 8/10

Sancho was a constant menace on the right wing and scored his team’s equaliser in the 39th minute.

CAM: Bruno Fernandes – 8/10

The Portugal international made a lot of inviting chances for his teammates in the opponent’s half and scored the winning goal in the 69th minute.

LW: Alejandro Garnacho – 7/10

He was not shy of having a strike at goal and was unfortunate to hit the post.

ST: Marcus Rashford – 6/10

Rashford had plenty of strikes at goal but failed to take any of his chances.


CM: Christian Eriksen – 6/10

He made one key chance in the final third.

CM: Scott McTominay – 6/10

McTominay didn’t get enough time to make an impact.

ST: Anthony Martial – 6/10

The French forward offered very little after coming off the bench.

ST: Wout Weghorst – 6/10

He made one decent run with the ball.

RW: Facundo Pellistri – N/A

Pellistri hardly had any time to make an impact.
