Manchester United were able to get back to winning ways at last with a slim 1-0 victory over Burnley on Saturday. The Red Devils desperately needed to secure all three points after a rather disappointing September and were gifted them by Bruno Fernandes’ impressive volley in the first half.

Here’s how the players fared on the night:

Andre Onana – 7.8

Good showing from the keeper with a much-needed clean sheet and some impressive saves.

Diogo Dalot – 7.5

Dalot was a strong presence on the flank and sniffed out quite a few good chances.

Victor Lindelof – 6.8

Poor showing from the Swede who ought to have done better.

Jonny Evans – 8.0

First start at Man United since 2015 and the veteran defender nearly had a goal to his name. However, it was his all-important assist to the match-winning goal which carried weight.

Sergio Reguilon – 7.0

Could not capitalize on the momentum he seemed to have in Munich.

Casemiro – 7.5

On the back of an impressive Champions League brace, the Brazilian actually appeared a bit tired.

Scott McTominay – 7.0

Poor outing for the Scot who simply couldn’t make the best out of the midfield duels.

Bruno Fernandes – 8.5

Easy player of the match. Apart from his winning goal, the Portuguese star showed much promise in build-up play but did not have the best delivery to his name at all times.

Hannibal Mejbri – 7.5

Arguably the biggest positive from the game, the starlet had a near-perfect first half.

Marcus Rashford – 6.5

Poor from the Englishman whose selfishness is beginning to cost the side valuable goals.

Rasmus Hojlund – 6.5

Promising at times but the fact that he had the least number of touches of any outfield player on the pitch is eerily reminiscent of Romelu Lukaku’s spell at the side.


Raphael Varane – 6.5

Back from injury and looked positive.

Sofyan Amrabat – N/A

Brought on too late to make a solid impact but a promising debut nevertheless.
