Manchester United registered their second win of the 2019 pre-season tour on Wednesday, thumping old rivals Leeds United 4-0.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer fielded two different sets of teams for either halves, and here’s how they fared down under:
SERGIO ROMERO – 7
The reliable backup goalkeeper made a good save from Patrick Bamford to maintain the clean sheet at 1-0.
AARON WAN-BISSAKA – 8
Fans were thrilled to witness the unusual sight of their right-back marauding down the flank and dominating in both defence and attack. Bagged the assist for Greenwood’s opener.
ERIC BAILLY – 7
Made a crucial block at 1-0, and dealt with the attacking threat successfully.
VICTOR LINDELOF – 8
An impressive display from the birthday boy. Made a brilliant run out from the defence that created a goalscoring opportunity for Rashford.
MARCOS ROJO – 7
Wasn’t troubled much. A confident performance, which involved some fancy keepy-uppys.
SCOTT MCTOMINAY – 8
A good display in central midfield. Combined well with Pogba, and his easy pass set up Rashford’s goal.
PAUL POGBA – 8
Leeds’ man-markers couldn’t stop him from controlling the game from his deep-lying playmaker role. His phenomenal pass to Wan-Bissaka made the opening goal possible.
JUAN MATA – 6.5
Complimented United’s young attack well, and looked a lot more comfortable in the number 10 position.
MASON GREENWOOD – 7
Bagged a poacher’s goal to open the scoring. Positioned himself well and made smart runs. Looks an interesting prospect for the season to come.
DANIEL JAMES – 7
Leeds simply could not deal with his pace. Hit the post on the counter, but needs work on his finishing and decision-making.
MARCUS RASHFORD – 8
Hit the post early in the game. Showed his composure by capping off a counter with a skillful, well-taken goal.
JOEL PEREIRA – 6
Wasn’t troubled. Comfortable on the ball.
DIOGO DALOT – 6
CHRIS SMALLING – 6
Did the job at the back. Could have positioned himself better.
PHIL JONES – 7
Scored a rare direct header from a corner kick.
ASHLEY YOUNG – 5
Booked for a dangerous and vengeful tackle.
NEMANJA MATIC – 6
Did his usual job of shielding the backline, but appeared too static. Subbed due to a potential injury scare.
ANDREAS PEREIRA – 7
Had urgency in his play. Delivered a pinpoint corner onto Jones’ head.
ANGEL GOMES – 6.5
Creative. Showed great composure around the box.
JESSE LINGARD – 6
Did not offer anything spectacular.
TAHITH CHONG – 8
A prime attacking threat. Won a penalty with his quick feet.
ANTHONY MARTIAL – 6
Didn’t do much apart from slotting in the cool spot-kick.
JAMES GARNER – 6
Replaced Matic late in the game.
