Man United Vs Tottenham Players Ratings And Man Of The Match.

Manchester United has won 1-0 against Tottenham after a deadlocked match. Man United started with a fast rhythm, later Tottenham dominated the game and Man United was unable to give the same energy as the beginning of the match. The team as a whole seemed a bit nervous and under pressure, which caused some missing chances and mistakes in the defense. But at the end, Martial, like usual, gifted Man United three points.

 

 

Our players ratings are as the following:

De Gea: Saved Man United from some dangerous chances, especially on the 41th minute. 7/10

Jones: Saved Man United from a dangerous chance for the Spurs on the 26th minute. 7/10

Smalling: Average match. However, it was a bad marking for Dele Alli who was going to score in a one to one. 5/10

Bailly:  Not his top form. I don’t think Mourinho was right to start him in such a match after a long injury. 5/10

Young:   He gave a balance between the attack and defense.of good attacking. 6/10

Matic: Not his best match, was a bit calm. 5/10

Herrera: It was clear that Mourinho wanted him to defend more than contributing in the attack, bus plan. 6/10

Valencia:  It seems a wing back suits him due to his attacking abilities. Also the most touches in the first half were from his side. 6/10

Mkhitaryan: Caused some issues for Tottenham’s defense, but was marked by Tottenham and couldn’t freely play. But in the second half he improved. 5/10

Lukaku: Missed a chance to score, and another chance to assist in the first 10 minutes only, and an empty net in the second half. You can’t miss any chance in such matches. He was marked as well. However, had one header on the post.  However, was able to assist the only goal. 4/10

Rashford:  Was desperate to score and energetic all over the pitch and dangerous from close and far range. The best United player on the pitch with no doubt. 8/10

Subs: 

Lingard:  Not the Lingard against Swansea City, didn’t change the game. 5/10

Martial: He always proves that he deserves to start. A super sub who broke the deadlock and scored a goal. 7/10

Darmian: was subbed to gain some seconds. N/A

 

 

Man of the match: I think Rashford was the most energetic and dangerous player, at least from Man United’s players. However, Martial gave Man United three points with around 20 minutes of playing only. I would go to Martial this time.

Jose Mourinho (Manager): It was a tactical match. The special one has to go back to the winning track and find solutions for the team bad form recently. 5/10
