Manchester United player ratings against Wolverhampton Wanderers:

David De Gea(7/10)(GK):

The best player on the pitch for Manchester United. Made a few great saves in the first half to keep his side in the game. The Spaniard is continuing his great performance this season. 

Aaron Wan-Bissaka(5/10)(RB):

Defensively the Englishman did his job but in the opposite half of the field, he was very poor. On several occasions, he failed to deliver a right cross from a very good position. 

Phil Jones(6/10)(CB):

Started in place of injured Harry Maguire and did his job well. But, on the goal, he should have headed the ball away from the danger zone. 

Raphael Varane(6.5/10)(CB):

The Frenchman was very good defensively and displayed a promising performance. 

Luke Shaw(5.5/10)(LB):

Looked vulnerable since the addition of Adama Traore in the second half and failed to cope with the Spaniard in several situations. 

Scott McTominay(4/10)(CDM):

Was very poor on the night and lost possession time and time again in midfield which broke the momentum on attacks and gave the opposition opportunities in transition. 

Nemanja Matic(5/10)(CDM):

Lost the midfield battle and struggled to keep hold of the ball for a long period. 

Mason Greenwood(6/10)(RW):

One of the better players on the night for Manchester United. But, unfortunately, was taken off at the hour mark. 

Jadon Sancho(5/10)(LW):

Worked very hard off the ball but with the ball, he failed to influence the game. He is looking physically short to play in the Premier League. 

Edinson Cavani(5/10)(CF):

Started as the centre forward but wasn’t impactful at all. He had a very good chance in the first half but failed to capitalise on the situation. 

Cristiano Ronaldo(5/10)(CF):

The service wasn’t good enough and he failed to do his magic against a well-structured Wolves team. 


Bruno Fernandes(5/10)(RW):

Had a great opportunity to score but failed to convert the chance. Made a good impact on the game but it wasn’t good enough. 

Marcus Rashford(4.5/10)(LW):

The poor display continues from him. Looked way off the pace of the game and wasn’t good enough in front of the goal. 

Anthony Elanga(N/A):

Didn’t have much time to influence the game.
