Goals were certainly in demand at the Theatre of Dreams as the much-anticipated clash between Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur ended in a 2-2 draw.

A goal from Rasmus Hojlund early in the game set things in motion and even though the away side responded with Richarlison’s quick equalizer, Marcus Rashford’s passionate strike in the 40th minute gave Erik ten Hag’s men the lead.

However, practical seconds in the second half saw Rodrigo Bentancur’s attempt end at the back of the net and it was all even from thereon.

Here’s how the Red Devils fared on the night.

Andre Onana – 6.0

While the commitment of the shot-stopper in travelling after the game to join his national side with less than 24 hours before his next potential appearance is commendable, his performance in this game was not.

Diogo Dalot – 8.0

The fullback had a positive game in the inverted role and made the best out of his tackles.

Jonny Evans – 5.5

His indecisiveness opened doors for Bentancur to comfortably finish past Onana.

Raphael Varane – 6.5

Not back to his best, the Frenchman’s reactions were poor.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 7.0

Lacked discipline and vision on the flank but did have his attacking moments.

Kobbie Mainoo – 7.0

Failed to inspire the energy he usually brings at his age. Still seemed one of the most composed players in possession on the pitch.

Christian Eriksen – 6.5

Couldn’t do much to stop the Spurs midfield from blazing past him. Ageing.

Alejandro Garnacho – 7.0

While passionate and attracted the right amount of pressure, his crosses were below par.

Bruno Fernandes – 6.5

Worked his socks off but the captain was wasteful at times.

Marcus Rashford – 7.5

Ended the home-game goal drought quite well but could have been more incisive in his finishing.

Rasmus Hojlund – 8.0

Excellent game with a goal and an assist to his name despite enjoying the luxury of very few touches.


Scott McTominay – 6.5

Should’ve done better to put Garnacho’s cross into the back of the net from an unmarked position in stoppage time.

Lisandro Martinez – 7.0

Instantly took charge of progressing the ball from deep.

Antony – N/A
