Manchester United wowed Old Trafford yet again, posting a brilliant 4-1 victory against AFC Bournemouth on Sunday. The lads are beginning to get their mojo quite well under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and here’s how they fared during the last Premier League fixture of 2018:


David De Gea- 6.0

Wasn’t bothered much by the Cherries offense, but could have done more to prevent their sole goal of the night.

Ashley Young- 7.1

Rock solid at the flanks yet again and was unlucky to have seen yellow in a challenge whose true intent is up for debate.

Eric Bailly- 5.9

Careless for much of the game, he was fortunate to have not seen red much earlier than he did. Could have done better.

Victor Lindelof- 7.2

Another charming game from the defender, who didn’t push forward as much as he’s been used to in the past few outings.

Luke Shaw- 7.1

Gelled quite well on the left-hand side and was able to compliment Martial up-front.

Ander Herrera- 7.6

Tactically sound and splendidly creative in the midfield, the Spaniard provided a crucial assist. Certainly made his case for more gametime.

Nemanja Matic- 7.0

Appeared much better than he did under Mourinho, but could have put in more effort in cases where he lost the ball too easily.

Paul Pogba- 9.4

The Frenchman did little wrong during the game and posted yet another splendid brace for Old Trafford to savor, as well as a crucial assist in the second half. Easily the man of the match.

Jesse Lingard- 7.3

Didn’t get as many chances as would have hoped to, but was clinical in his passing.

Marcus Rashford- 8.8

Yet another solid game from the youngster, whose build-up to the opening goal was a moment that United fans will savor for quite a while. He’s slowly building up his own goal tally as well.

Anthony Martial- 7.8

Decisive assist and created numerous chances, it seems all but certain that the Frenchman will be a regular sight during the months to come.



Romelu Lukaku- 7.3

Glad to be back on the scoresheet, the Belgian will have to do more than just being clinical upfront to attain more gametime.

Andreas Pereira- 6.2

Wasn’t as firm as Herrera in the heart of United’s game.

Phil Jones- 4.0

Couldn’t do much apart from plugging the backline following Bailly’s red.
