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.
