Totenham vs Manchester United Match Ratings

The much anticipated game ended in a 1-1 draw. United had chances to kill the game but lacked a cutting edge and was also deterred by an inspired performance from Hugo Lloris.

It was Pogba’s first game since his return from an ankle injury and he was instrumental to his side taking a point off after Spurs had taken the lead in the first half. Many would question the tactical decisions of both managers in the dugout.

Jose Mourinho, much like himself played to hit the opposition on the counter and should have killed the game off after they took a first half lead.

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s team selections could also be probed as Mason Greenwood and Paul Pogba changed the complexion of the game once they entered it.

Here is our rating for the match.

Manchester United

David De Gea

While many would argue that he should have saved the shot from Bergwjin, it is very clear that his defence let him down. Apart from that, he dealt with other threats really well. 6/10

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Much like his usual self. Spurs struggled to create anything on his flank throughout the game. A solid performance. 6.5/10

Victor Lindelof

Appeared shaky at times in the first half and didn’t really have a great deal to deal with. Came off with a knock in the second half. 6/10

Harry Maguire

He should have done a lot better against Bergwjin for the first goal and he let his team down in the end. A poor performance from the United skipper. 4/10

Luke Shaw

He should also take part of the blame for Spurs goal and most of their successful attacks came from his flank. He also joined up with the defence but could have done a lot better. 5/10

Scot Mctominay

A solid and combative performance from the Scottish International. 6.5/10

Fred

He didn’t not have a bad game either. Did he not appear pleased when he was brought off in the second half. 6.5/10

Daniel James

These days, Dan James looks like a proper championship player. Had no impact on the game whatsoever. 4.5/10

Bruno Fernandes

He worked his socks off and tried to create several goalscoring chances for his team. He was rewarded with a goal from the spot. On second thoughts, he could have been better with his decision making. 7/10

Marcus Rashford

Had a wonderful chance to put United in front early in second half but was denied by a good reaction save from Lloris. 6/10

Anthony Martial

The Frenchman also forced a good save from his compatriot in the first half. Was more of a passerby from there on. 6/10

Subs

Paul Pogba

Our man of the match. His presence on the pitch changed the entire complexion of the game. We hope he would deliver on the promise of his inspiring cameo for the rest of the season. 8/10

Mason Greenwood

Brought United to life on the right flank and could have given United a late victory if he had scored with the last kick of the game. A good performance off the bench. 7/10

Nemanja Matic.

The midfielder made a strong case to be in the starting lineup for the next game with a tidy performance of the bench. 6.5/10

Odion Ighalo

The Nigerian striker didn’t have an imprint on the game. 5/10

Eric Bailly

Played for barely seven minutes. Nil

Totenham

Hugo Lloris

An inspired performance by the experienced shot stopper. Arguably Spurs best player in the game. 7.5/10

Serge Aurier

A very positive performance from the Ivorian fullback. Should have got himself on the scores sheet. 6.5/10

Davinson Sanchez

A solid defensive performance. 6/10

Eric Dier

He would have had a higher rating if he didn’t concede the penalty in disgraceful fashion. 6/10

Ben Davies

Did not have much to deal with until Greenwood came on and he coped with threat posed by the teenager. 6/10

Moussa Sissoko

Helped his team by providing defensive support. 6/10

Harry Winks

Worked his socks off to neutralize United’s threat in midfield. 6/10

Son

Worked hard on the counter and was unlucky not score as his goal bound header was saved by De Gea. 7/10

Erik Lamela

Worked hard to support attacks from midfield and was very lucky to escape a booking from the referee. 6.5/10

Stephen Bergwjin

Showed drive to give Spurs the lead. An excellent performance from the Dutchman. 8/10

Harry Kane.

Was he even in the game at all? We don’t think so. 4.5/10

Subs

Gedson Fernandes

Did not do more than make up the numbers. Left much to be desired. 4/10

Giovanni Lo Celso.

The Argentinian did not really have an impact in the game. 5/10

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer

He could have picked a stronger starting line up but he made amends by bringing on Pogba and Greenwood. 6/10

Jose Mourinho

Will Mourinho ever evolve his tactics? He could have easily killed off the game but chose to play safe. I am not sure many Spurs fans will be happy with the result against his former employees. 5.5/10
