The Premier League saw an excellent showing by Manchester United who aced their rivals Leeds United in a 5-1 home display of goalscoring skill.
Here is how the Red Devils fared during the highly anticipated fixture:
David De Gea – 6.5
While Luke Ayling’s goal was great, De Gea has shown the prowess to stop such attempts in the past. The absence of a cleansheet was one of the only things that United did wrong and the Spaniard needs to be wary of this.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 6.9
Wan-Bissaka did not get his usual chance to tackle away to glory and lost most of his attempted duels.
Victor Lindelof – 8.0
An assist to his name and a strong argument for him to start ahead of or even alongside Raphael Varane. Just the kind of competition Solskjær needs.
Harry Maguire – 7.2
The English defender will be gutted about conceding a goal and not doing a better job dictating the movement of the ball from the back.
Luke Shaw – 6.8
Not the pacey Shaw United supporters had come to expect since the end of last season but nevertheless had his chances at offensive attempts.
Scott McTominay – 7.2
Outshined by Fred in this pivot but regardless made a strong comment for his regular inclusion at facilitating the attack with physicality.
Fred – 7.9
A goal to his name and more importantly an entire opposition midfield bested despite giving their best. More of the same from the Brazilian.
Daniel James – 6.9
Fortunate to have been handed the start by Solskjær but it is fair to say that if such performances are increased in a goal-hungry style, the Welshman may not see too many starts.
Bruno Fernandes – 9.8
Man of the Match and did nothing wrong. It is certainly a fitting reply to his critics that the quick-fire barrage of goals that formed the hattrick did not involve a single penalty.
Paul Pogba – 9.6
Assisted four out of the five goals and was exceptional in his creative prowess. United supporters will be hoping for more of those passes as well as a potential contract.
Mason Greenwood – 8.1
On the scoresheet and held his own quite well. The youngster has a real good chance at building his spot in the starting lineup as a striker more often.
Nemanja Matic – 6.6
Introduced stability to a midfield that was already dictating the entirety of the play.
Anthony Martial – 6.7
Back from injury and given his preferred striker’s spot, but was not able to contribute a goal.
Jadon Sancho – 6.2
Nott the debut he would have been targeting but nevertheless set the base for future selection dilemmas.
