Barcelona vs United Ratings: Manchester United Ratings + Fans’ Reaction

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first ever at attempt at clearing the quarterfinal stage of the Champions League came to a rather abrupt halt when Manchester United were quite simply outclassed by a highly superior looking Barcelona side at the Camp Nou Stadium in Catalonia.


Two first half goals from Lionel Messi effectively sealed the win while a brilliant curling effort from former Merseyside man Philippe Coutinho assured the La Liga giants’ progress to the semifinal of the continent’s biggest and most valuable footballing competition.

Here are the Manchester United Player Ratings:

David de Gea 3

The Spaniard had a night to forget in Spain as a grave error from his side led to Barca’s second goal.

Phil Jones 3

Another player who really struggled to get into the pace of the game, Jones was given a proper running around by Messi.

Chris Smalling 5

Didn’t position himself too well in both of Messi’s goals but was far more dependable than his English counterpart.

Victor Lindelof

Victor Lindelof 5

Brought into the right-back role in Ole’s attempt to include Jones in the side, Lindelof didn’t offer much on the night.

Ashley Young 2

Another week, another disgraceful Ashley Young performance. It’s time for United to find a new wing-back.

Scott McTominay 4

Quite possibly their best midfielder on the pitch, despite his inexperience, he showed good composure on the ball at times.

Fred Manchester United 1059510

Fred 4

Had a torrid time facing Messi in the middle of the park as he was nutmegged in the build-up to Barca’s opener.

Paul Pogba 3

Other than a good move in the first minute, the Frenchman was merely a spectator for the entirety of the tie.

Jesse Lingard 4

Showed his collectedness on the ball in the opening stages but gradually fizzled out over the course of the game. 

Anthony Martial Football3651

Anthony Martial 4

The Frenchman offered next to nothing going forward and deserves to be dropped in the coming weeks. 

Marcus Rashford 4

The young English striker had massive expectations on his shoulder and unfortunately for him, he couldn’t deliver. 


Diogo Dalot 4

Came on in place of Martial in the final stages but didn’t really have enough time to announce himself. 


Romelu Lukaku 3

Showed some poor touches after coming on and didn’t look his usual clinical self on the night.
