Manchester United ensured that Jose Mourinho wouldn’t gloat upon his return to Old Trafford as they secured a 2-1 win against Tottenham Hotspur.
Marcus Rashford netted both of United’s goals, the second one coming from a well-taken penalty whereas Spurs’ consolation came from in-form Dele Alli.
Here’s how the Red Devils fared on the night:
David De Gea – 8.2
One of those games where his efforts were just enough to keep the barrage of the opposition out from the net.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 8.0
This appeared to be the first game where Wan-Bissaka was truly back to his pre-injury mojo.
Harry Maguire – 7.9
Will be gutted to have conceded the goal but was decisive in the backline.
Victor Lindelof – 8.1
Significantly better from the Swede who showed great match awareness.
Ashley Young – 8.0
Exceptional in his play and showed the precise sort of composure that an experienced wingback ought to bring to the pitch.
Scott McTominay – 7.8
Will require a game or two before returning to his pre-injury brilliance but was scrappy and that’s what matters.
Fred – 8.3
One of his best games in a United shirt, even though his most capable defensive interception may have been an unaware one.
Daniel James – 8.0
Quiet for much of the game but his attempts in the second-half reminded Old Trafford of his scoring potential.
Jesse Lingard- 7.7
Not as bad as he has been critiqued to be as of recent, but often looked to be the weak link in the attack.
Marcus Rashford – 9.4
Best player on the pitch, two brilliant goals and was denied further accolades only due to the Spurs keeper’s saves. A hattrick was all he needed to make this the perfect game.
Mason Greenwood – 7.7
Muted impact due to Rashford’s offensive showing, but the youngster was a crucial cog nevertheless.
Andreas Pereira – 6.6
Wasn’t convincing during his time on the pitch and could have been much better.
Luke Shaw – Brought on too late to make a solid impact.
