PLAYERS RATINGS: Man United 0-2 Tottenham And Man Of The Match

A terrible first half from Manchester United, maybe one of the worst halves for Manchester United this season. Even with the changes in the tactics and positions in the second half, the performance didn’t improve. Mourinho needs real solid defenders, with the absences of Baily. Just a terrible night for Manchester United and a loss to the Spurs for the first time away from home since decades.

Here are our player ratings and man of the match for today’s match

De Gea:  Did his job, can’t be blamed for the defensive mistakes. Saved Son’s shot in the 69th minute that was going to make it 3-0. 7/10

Smalling:  Was able to do better on the first goal. 3/10

Jones: At fault for both goals, terrible performance. Booked. 1/10

Valencia: Was a bit shaky today, especially in the defense. Not a good match. A  very dangerous tackle on Alli, he was lucky not to give Tottenham a penalty. 4/10

Young: Also was at foul for both goals. A bad match for the Englishman. Couldn’t protect his side. 3/10

Matic: Maybe the best defensive player today, not excellent as well. Wasn’t playing in his normal position as well. 5/10

Pogba: We didn’t see the real Pogba, wasn’t playing well in such position in the midfield with two others midfielders. 4/10

Lingard: A poor match as well, today he played not in his favorite position. 5/10

Sanchez:  Was trying, was everywhere even in the defense and was crossing and passing. The most dangerous from Man United’s side today. Was dropping a lot to the midfield to provide balls, which made him not dangerous. Not in his best day as well. 5/10

Martial: Not so good on the right, had a couple of chances but missed them. A bad match as well. 5/10

Lukau: missed several chances, and caught offside several times. Not dangerous. 4/10

Subs: 

Mata: Couldn’t do much. 5/10

Fellaini:  Played seven minutes then left injured and wasted one sub. N/A

Herrera: Not much time to impress and during such situations. 5/10

 

Man of the match: None of Manchester United players deserve it for sure. Maybe De Gea, as usual.

Jose Mourinho (Manager): A wrong formation in the first half, Martial is a LW, Sanchez can play behind the striker, Pogba can’t play in that position, it kills his creativity, Lingard doesn’t have a clear position, awful defenders that can’t play for a big club like Man United. However, changed some in the formation in the second half, but couldn’t come back. 3/10
