Back to Europa League duty and United finally picked up their first away win since March. The performance still left a lot to be desired and the side need to improve but how did each individual player get on?
Sergio Romero: Made some good saves when called upon and never really looked like conceding except when the post saved him. Arguably the best back-up keeper in the world and rarely lets us down – 6.5
Aaron Wan-Bissaka: Got forward well and seems to be adapting to the new wing-back role but can sometimes be sloppy in possession. Alas, he works tenaciously and rarely puts a foot wrong in defence. Replaced by Daniel James on the hour mark. – 6
Phil Jones: Ventured into midfield multiple times in the first half and even attempted a few stepovers. Worked hard all night and only gave away a couple of fouls and didn’t score an own goal, so all in all not a bad night for Phil. – 6
Harry Maguire: Captained United on his first European game for the club. Walked away before the pre-match coin toss and maybe that was a prelude for the night ahead. Wasn’t his best game in a red shirt and was constantly troubled by Sadiq and Soumah. Nonetheless, he cleared the ball well and kept a clean sheet. – 5
Marcos Rojo: One of his better games for United. Made some important challenges in his usual no nonsense fashion and managed to avoid a booking. Maybe turning up to training in an orange Rolls-Royce is his good luck charm. – 6
Brandon Williams: United’s best player on the night. Defended admirably and got forward effectively and won us the penalty. His performance will have Luke Shaw worried as he could make the left back spot his own. Great performance. – 8
Scott McTominay: Again, as with most games, Scott always looks to drive the ball forward however a couple of times he was guilty of over-playing it. Should have done better with his free header following Mata’s free kick. – 6
James Garner: Making his full debut for the club, Garner looked assured and composed on the ball after he settled in. Played a number of passes forward that helped split the back line and looks like he could be a starter before too long. Europa League will be good for him to showcase his talent. – 7
Juan Mata: Just doesn’t seem to have the legs any more unfortunately. Failed to grab the game by the scruff of the neck and wasn’t effective as United’s number 10. His best moment was finding Scott McTominay with a free kick although nothing came of it. – 3
Jesse Lingard: Had a few decent moments in possession, played some intricate football at times and could have scored in the first half. However, he didn’t offer much consistently on his first start in three weeks. – 5
Anthony Martial: Converted the penalty that proved to be the only goal in the game on his first start back after injury and held the ball up well on occasion. Good to get 60 minutes under his belt and will be looking to kick on after a relatively quiet night for him. – 6
Marcus Rashford: Replaced Tony on the hour mark and took up some good positions on the left wing but didn’t run at defenders as much as most fans would have liked. Also didn’t give the ball to James in the 90th minute when he could have been through on goal. – 5
Daniel James: Offered some pace when he came on for Wan-Bissaka after 60 minutes but didn’t offer much else. Definitely looks better out on the left than he does on the right. – 5
Andreas Pereira: Replaced the debutant Jimmy Garner after 82 minutes but didn’t really do much. – 4
