United Players Rated From Spurs Defeat

De Gea- 7

United’s best player of the day. Thwarted Kane on two occasions and made a superb save against Son one on one, to keep his side in the game.

Bailly- 5.5

Was solid as usual, but was out of position many times, and looked uncomfortable at right-back.

Smalling- 5

Another poor performance from the English defender. Wasteful in possession and poor in tackling.

Jones- 5

Couldn’t deal well with both Kane and Son, and his poor positioning led to both the goals.

Blind- 6

Calm and solid in possession, and his crossing was absolutely lethal.

Tuanzebe- 4.5

Anonymous performance from the young Mancunian, although it wasn’t his mistake as he was played in a midfield role.

Carrick- 5

Overrun in midfield, and struggled with Tottenham’s pace. But strung a few good passes and grew into the game in the second half.

Rooney- 5.5

Poor performance from the skipper. Made a mess out of his marking of Wanyama which led to the opener. Even his goal wasn’t enough to cover his poor display as he was wasteful in possession.

Lingard- 4.5

Worked hard as usual and tried to threaten Tottenham’s defence with his pace. But couldn’t do much as he was missing his attacking partner Rashford.

Mata- 5

Was ineffective in attack as United enjoyed very little possession. Worked hard but was taken off in the second half.

Martial- 6

Was United’s most active player in the first half, and even if he couldn’t convert two good chances, he was certainly a threat to the opposition. Shifted to his usual left wing role after the break and it gave instant result as he created a beautiful goal for Rooney.


Herrera- 6

His introduction paid dividends as United became more dominant in the midfield, which boosted their confidence and ultimately got them a goal back.

Mkhitaryan- 5

Made a couple of dangerous runs but was ineffective and quiet apart from that.

Rashford- 6

Had very little time to make an impact, but missed a good chance in added time.

Subs Not Used– Romero, Darmian, Mitchell, McTominay
