Manchester United registered their third win from three pre-season games on Saturday, as they beat Inter Milan in impressive fashion despite the scoreline reading 1-0.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer fielded what looked like his first-choice starting lineup for the opening hour of the game, and the entire side was replaced by a brand new team after the 60-minute mark.
Here’s how the Red Devils fared during the friendly encounter:
DAVID DE GEA – 6
Had a few nervy moments from crosses coming into the box, in what was his first pre-season appearance.
AARON WAN-BISSAKA – 8
Man of the match. The Englishman was one of United’s best attackers, and certainly their best defender. His slide tackles were appreciated with roars from the entire stadium.
AXEL TUANZEBE – 7
Was a staunch presence in defence. Calm on the ball. Made a few good interceptions.
VICTOR LINDELOF – 7
Was robbed off another potential assist following a marauding run, as Daniel James slotted the ball wide. Subbed post a minor injury scare.
LUKE SHAW – 6.5
Attacked well, but failed to contribute much directly.
NEMANJA MATIC – 6
Covered the backline and passed well. Movement appeared slow and rusty. His header from a corner hit the post.
PAUL POGBA – 7
Had a few bright moments that baffled the Inter defence and amazed the crowd.
DANIEL JAMES – 5
Struggled on the right wing. Missed two great chances.
JESSE LINGARD – 6
His smart movement caused problems. Had a decent shot saved.
ANTHONY MARTIAL – 6.5
Dribbled skillfully, and created a good chance for Lingard. Kept swapping positions with Rashford to confuse the Inter defence.
MARCUS RASHFORD – 6
Inter found it difficult to deal with his pace. Struggled to make much happen otherwise.
PHIL JONES – 6
Subbed on for Lindelof. Steady at the back.
SERGIO ROMERO – 6
Barely had anything to do.
DIOGO DALOT – 6
Offered an outlet down the right.
ERIC BAILLY – 7
Maintained the clean sheet with his no-nonsense defensive style.
ASHLEY YOUNG – 6
On the receiving end of boos, which sums up how a majority of the Manchester United fanbase rates him.
SCOTT MCTOMINAY – 6
Pinged a few decent long passes.
FRED – 6
A good first pre-season appearance. Nutmegged an opponent, which pleased the supporters.
ANDREAS PEREIRA – 6
Energetic. Booked for a revenge tackle.
JUAN MATA – 6
Received cheers for a silky first-touch control. Complemented the attack.
TAHITH CHONG – 8
An immense threat down the left. Created goal-scoring opportunities, and won a lot of fouls. Subbed off due to injury late in the game.
MASON GREENWOOD – 8
Scored an amazing goal. Could have doubled his tally, but unluckily hit the post. His 360-roulette skill to deceive Skriniar was another crowd-pleaser.
ANGEL GOMES – NA
Came on too late for the injured Chong.
