Manchester United fans on The United Peoples TV Discord server have been awarding their player ratings for the Champions League game in Istanbul this evening. Here is a selection of some of their thoughts:
(A score of 6 is around average.)
Dean Henderson 6 – Couldn’t have done much behind a shambolic defense. It was like he was the only one at the back (posted by Depressed Patron)
Aaron Wan-Bissaka 3 – Positioning is terrible and crossing even worse (posted by Stevie G’s Red Card)
Axel Tuanzebe 5 – Decent but at fault for the first goal (posted by Kisio86)
Harry Maguire 6 – Decent game for him, but his pace kills his positioning every time. The man can’t move faster than a limping duck (posted by Cal)
Luke Shaw 7 – The only creative outlet for the team. Got an assist for the Martial goal (posted by Bhargav_93)
Nemanja Matic 6 – Good hold up play as usual, along with great passing, but as a LCB he was okay too, but not as aggressive as I would’ve liked. Got beaten by Ba and didn’t really redeem himself (posted by Cal)
Donny van de Beek 6 – It’s criminal how early he was subbed off and henceforth we lacked creativity and stability which we had a bit (posted by Depressed Patron)
Juan Mata 2 – Very poor. Wasn’t in the game. Very quiet. Caused an error which led to a goal (posted by Mohammed-MUFC)
Bruno Fernandes 3 – Poor on the ball and was fault at the second goal (posted by Bhargav_93)
Marcus Rashford 5 – Just looks tired and frustrated (posted by Stevie G’s Red Card)
Anthony Martial 7 – The sole goalscorer today. Wasn’t in his best but still better than all other strikers on the pitch. (posted by Depressed Patron)
Paul Pogba 5.5 – Didn’t really make a difference coming on for VDB. He might still be afraid of another big injury, doesn’t seem to be pushing himself like he used to (posted by Cal)
Edinson Cavani 5 – Difficult situation but has offered nothing so far (posted by Stevie G’s Red Card)
Mason Greenwood 6 – Showed signs of life but didn’t get enough chance (posted by Stevie G’s Red Card)
Tim Fosu-Mensah 6 – Good game, showed potential as RCB or CB option for the future (posted by Cal).
