Manchester United player ratings vs Everton: Who impressed?

Manchester United got back to winning ways with a 2-1 triumph over Everton at Old Trafford. The Red Devils looked the stronger of the two sides in the opening stages and Paul Pogba turned in the rebound from his penalty kick to put the home team in the driver’s seat.

It was by far United’s best performance of the season as Jose Mourinho’s men looked like a real threat in the final third. Paul Pogba teed up Anthony Martial at the edge of the box and the Frenchman obliged with a curling effort to find the net in the 49th minute.

Gylfi Sigurdsson pulled one back from the penalty spot after Richarlison was brought down by Chris Smalling inside the box. United had more chances to increase their lead as Everton pressed for the equaliser but Jordan Pickford made some crucial saves to keep the visitors in the hunt.

Manchester United climbed to 8th in the standings with 17 points from 10 games and will face another tough test week when they make the trip to the Vitality Stadium to face Bournemouth.

Meanwhile, Marco Silva will be disappointed as the defeat put an end to Everton’s three-game winning streak in the Premier League.

Manchester United Player Ratings

David De Gea (7/10)

Made a few regulation saves and came out to intercept the crosses; looked confident with his handling and always a reliable presence at the back.

Ashley Young (6/10)

Drove forward with purpose but was caught out at the back on certain occasions by Lucas Digne.

Victor Lindelof (7/10)

Another good performance by the Swedish international. Looked comfortable in possession and put in some solid challenges to keep things tight at the back.

Chris Smalling (6/10)

Looked a bit awkward with his positioning and could have been tighter with his marking; lunged into a rash challenge to concede the penalty.

Luke Shaw (6.5/10)

Looked comfortable with his link-up play in the attacking third but did not do a great job defensively as he was outfoxed by Seamus Coleman’s movement.

Fred (7/10)

Marked his return to the first-team with a tidy performance. Linked up really well with Martial and Pogba and used his vision to spark that creativity in midfield.

Juan Mata (7/10)

The Spaniard looked comfortable on the ball and made some incisive defence-splitting passes to find the attackers up front; good with his deliveries from set-pieces.

Paul Pogba (7.5/10)

Scored from the rebound after his rather weak penalty was saved by Jordan Pickford. Looked threatening with his link-up play with Mata, Fred and Martial and teed up his international teammate for the second goal.

Nemanja Matic (6.5/10)

A decent performance by the Serb.did a decent job to close down the spaces in the midfield and initiated the build-up play with some accurate passes.

Anthony Martial (7.5/10)

Another good performance in the Premier League. Took on the defenders with his pace, got into promising positions and scored the second goal with a brilliant curling shot from the edge of the box; could have added to his tally in the dying stages but failed to guide the ball past the goalkeeper.

Marcus Rashford (6/10)

A lively presence in the final third but was poor with his composure and decision-making in front of goal.


Romelu Lukaku (5/10)

Proved once again in the limited time that he horribly out of touch this season.

Came on in stoppage time and didn’t see enough of the ball to make an impact.

Ander Herrera (N/A)

Not enough time to make an impact.
