Manchester United locked horns with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium earlier this evening as they hoped to earn a good result away from home. The Red Devils made a good start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 27th minute when Marcus Rashford scored with a good finish. However, Martin Odegaard equalised for the Gunners just one minute later as the two teams went into the half-time interval with a 1-1 scoreline.

Man United were solid in the second half and conceded another goal in injury-time when Declan Rice found the back of the net. Gabriel Jesus got his name on the scoresheet as well in the latter stages of the contest as Erik ten Hag’s men crashed to a disappointing 3-1 loss in North London.

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

GK: Andre Onana – 6/10

Onana made a couple of solid saves at the back but still conceded three goals today.

RB: Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 7/10

He gave a good account of himself on the defensive end of the field but offered very little going forward.

CB: Victor Lindelof – 6/10

Lindelof was far from convincing on the defensive third of the pitch. However, he was accurate with his passing.

CB: Lisandro Martinez – 6.5/10

The Argentine talent tried his best to keep things solid at the back. He was replaced in the 66th minute.

Dalot made a lot of important clearances inside his half. However, he struggled to influence the game in the final third.

CM: Casemiro – 6/10

The Brazilian talent failed to get into the flow of the game and produced a lackluster display this evening.

RW: Antony – 6.5/10

Antony worked his socks off in both halves but never looked like he would score.

CAM: Bruno Fernandes – 6.5/10

He managed to create some good plays for his teammates but failed to register a goal.

LW: Marcus Rashford – 7.5/10

Rashford caused a lot of chaos in the Arsenal half and scored with a great finish in the 27th minute.

He had a few bright moments in the game but there was no goal for him this evening.

His impact on the game was minimal.
