A poor match, tactically, for Manchester United where the Red Devils have lost their first match under Ole Gunner Solskjaer in a very disappointing and nervous match that included 10 yellow cards, and a red card.

Manchester United had an okay first half, was balanced to a certain point, but the injuries at the end of the first half where Ole Gunner Solskjaer had to substitute Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard.

Manchester United couldn’t come back in the second half, but they conceded twice within a short period of time where both of the goals were assisted by the ex-Manchester United winger, Angel Di Maria.

To make it worse, Manchester United’s midfielder, Paul Pogba, has received a second yellow card which led to a red card and missing the second crucial match away from home.

Bailly: A poor match, especially when one on one. 5.5/10

Young: The pace was the main issue, suffered against Mbappe and other fast players. 5.5/10

Shaw: Played out of position, and his poor positioning was behind the first goal. 6/10

Matic: Was okay in the first half, but poor in the second half. 6/10

Herrera: One of his lowest matches so far, especially in the second half. 6/10

Lingard: Came off injured in the last seconds of the second half. 5/10

Martial: Wasn’t very dangerous. Struggled in the last minutes of the first half and was in pain. 5/10

Rashford: Was trying throughout the match, but couldn’t do much today. 6.5/10



Sanchez: Did nothing, played more in the middle as a striker rather than a winger. 5/10

Mata: A few crosses, but did nothing significant. 5/10

Jones: Came just to secure the result in the last seconds of the match. N/A

Man of the match: It’s the ex-Manchester United player, Angel Di Maria. None of Manchester United players performed well today.
