Pogba & Harrop impress, Rooney Frustrates – Manchester United Player Ratings

Here’s how the United players fared in their last league game of the season-

Pereira- 6.5

Was a bit nervous in the beginning but dealt well with Milivojevic’s free kick. Could’ve been a worse debut for him had Benteke’s header gone in instead of hitting the post.

Fosu Mensah- 7

Made some rash challenges in his intense battle with Zaha. Was overall solid, and made up for his poor positioning with a couple of perfectly-timed tackles.

Bailly- 7

Did well to shut down a player of Benteke’s ability. Looked injured on two occasions, but still managed to play 90 minutes. Will be a big miss for the Stockholm game, as United’s defence will miss his commanding presence.

Jones- 6.5

Didn’t have much to do but was reliable whenever called upon. Was found in the opponent’s half more often than usual, as he tried to help his team score a third.

Mitchell- 7

Gave a glimpse of United’s future as he and Harrop made a wonderful pair down the left side. Didn’t look like a debutant, as he was pretty confident on the ball and also managed to show his skills.

McTominay- 7

Composed on the ball and looked like a Carrick in the making. Complemented Pogba well, along with shielding of the back four.

Tuanzebe- 7

Had his best outing of the season, as he was visibly comfortable against a poor Palace midfield. Was mostly involved in attack and looked like a natural midfielder. Was brilliant in passing, as he had a pass accuracy of 98.4%, as he misplaced just ONE out of 63 passes. Not bad for a central midfielder, right?

Pogba- 8

Superb performance from the young Frenchman in his first outing since his father’s gloomy demise. Scored with a fine finish, and his assist for Harrop’s opener was sublime. Hauled off before the half-time whistle as Mourinho looked to keep him fresh for the Ajax finale.

Lingard- 7.5

Emphatic performance from the winger, who presented a strong case for his inclusion in the Europa League Final. His usual runs were pretty dangerous against a lacklustre Palace defence, and his assist for Pogba rounded off his solid outing.

Harrop- 8

Excellent debut from the young left winger, who scored a sumptuous goal after some eye-catching skill. Was a constant threat on the left side, and bed in well on the right as well after the break. Exciting performance from a youngster who’s one to watch out for in the coming years.

Rooney- 6

Decent but frustrating performance for the skipper. Had a great lobbed effort go off target in the opening minutes, and his constant futile efforts to score a goal hinted that this could be his last Old Trafford outing.


Carrick- 6.5

Replaced Pogba in the 45th minute. Shielded the back four well, and this could very possibly turn out to be his last competitive game for United if Mourinho opts against a three-man midfield against Ajax.

Martial- 5.5

Came on for Lingard just before halftime, but didn’t do much to show that he deserves a place in United’s line-up in the showpiece finale.

Gomes- 6

Came on in the closing minutes, and looked confident and bright. Aged 16, he became one of United’s youngest debutants.

Subs Not Used- O’Hara, Blind, Dearnley, Willock.
