Tottenham 0-3 Man United: Player Ratings As Star Players Delivered For Solskjaer
Man United bounced back to ease pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, registering a 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur.
Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring with a sublime first-half strike. Edinson Cavani and Marcus Rashford added two goals after the break to bag all three points.
Despite all the rumours of dressing room unrest, United players delivered a convincing performance to extend their manager’s stay at the club.
David de Gea – 6.0
United’s busiest player against Liverpool, but had a quiet outing in London.
Victor Lindelof – 7.0
Solid against Tottenham’s biggest threat: Son Heung-min.
Raphael Varane – 8.5
Started at the heart of a back-three after returning from injury. Both of United’s clean sheets this season have come in his presence.
Harry Maguire – 7.5
Booked early on, but still impressed against Harry Kane.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 8
Need to work on his end product to shine in a wing-back role. Excellent challenge to block Son’s shot in the first-half.
Scott McTominay – 7.5
Dominated the Spurs midfield, and won 11 duels – a season high for any United midfielder in a league game this campaign.
Fred – 7.0
Got freedom to press higher up the pitch due to three centre-backs behind him. The Brazilian’s vicious long-range attempt forced a stunning save from Hugo Lloris.
Luke Shaw – 6.0
Seemed more in control tonight following that diabolical display against Liverpool, but still needs to deliver more.
Bruno Fernandes – 7.5
Smart pass to find Ronaldo for United’s opening goal. Was involved in the second as well.
Cristiano Ronaldo – 8.5
Scored with a spectacular volley, and also assisted Cavani’s goal. No wonder Solskjaer continuous to start him over other young alternatives.
Edinson Cavani – 8.5
Linked up well with Ronaldo in a front-two. Coolly clipped the ball over Lloris to put the game to the bed.
Marcus Rashford – 7.5
Brought on to catch Spurs on the break. Did exactly that by scoring the third goal of the game.
Nemanja Matic – 7.0
Ensured United kept the clean sheet, as well as assisted Rashford.
Jesse Lingard – N/A
