Manchester United player ratings against Burnley:
David De Gea(6/10)(GK):
The Spaniard didn’t need to do a lot in this game apart from conceding the goal which he could do nothing about.
The former Crystal Palace defender looked solid in defence but has to improve a lot going forward if he would want to keep his place in the starting line-up.
He had a decent game apart from that mistake in the first half which led to the Clarets’ goal.
The Red Devils captain continues to struggle at the back and needs to find his form as quickly as possible.
Looked very good and also did very well on both ends of the pitch.
The Serbian’s presence in the midfield allowed McTominay to make forward runs but he needed to control the game more.
The best player on the night for Manchester United and scored a great goal. Apart from the goal, he attempted two more great long-range shots and one of them led to Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal.
Worked extremely hard off the ball and also took the shot on the second goal which deflected off Ben Mee.
The youngster displayed a great performance, produced a few great crosses for the strikers and also worked hard defensively as well.
The Uruguayan didn’t influence the game as much as he did in the last game against Newcastle United but was the most hard-working player on the pitch for Manchester United.
Scored the third goal but should have opened the account much earlier but he missed a great opportunity in a one on one situation.
Replaced injured Eric Bailly and had a decent game.
Played higher up the field after replacing Greenwood and played well enough and supported Wan-Bissaka defensively.
Came very late into the game and didn’t have enough time to influence the game.
