Manchester United Vs AC Milan Player Ratings


Manchester United finished their preseason tour unbeaten. Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard were on the score sheet for the Red Devils before winning the game on penalties
Here are the player ratings from the game:

Starting Team:
David de Gea: 7
Had a pretty solid performance with two impressive saves. He had no chance with Suso’s incredible first-half strike and saved the crucial penalty in the shootout.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka: 7
He proved that he is a a good attackers as he provided some dangerous deliveries. Had a great game overall.

Victor Lindelof: 6
Uniteds defence was exposed on many occasions by  AC Milan. Was unlucky to have Milan’s second goal deflecting off his back. He needs a great partnership with Maguire.

Marcos Rojo: 6
His starting was a bit bizarre. Leaves us with questions regarding the futures of Chris Smalling and His. He had a hot-headed performance in Cardiff but was a reliable overall.

Luke Shaw: 6
Seems Lukaku's speed leak on Twitter stirred up some emotions in him. He attacked with pace and power down the left, regularly joining the attack and making overlapping runs.

Andreas Pereira: 5
Good movement and made some silky passes. Didn't do very much though in terms of creativity to fill in the void of Pogba

Scott McTominay: 6
Showed his passing ability on many occasions in the game. He was once again solid in the centre of the pitch will play a key role this season for Solskjaer.

Nemanja Matic: 4
Slow and error prone, and was at fault for AC Milan’s goal when his poor touch allowed Suso in.

Juan Mata: 5
Slow and sloppy in possession and struggled to keep up with the pace of United’s attacks. I hope he gives way to Angel Gomes.

Anthony Martial: 6
Assisted Lingard for United’s second-half equaliser but had a quiet game overall.

Marcus Rashford: 7
Scored his third goal of pre-season after nicely cutting in from the left and seeing his strike deflect past Gianluigi Donnarumma. Had great pace in the game.

Subs:
Daniel James: 6
Brought in a lot more pace and attacked well. Scored the winning penalty in the shootout.

Jesse Lingard: 6
Had a lively performance off the bench. Scored the equaliser from a tight angle on his weaker foot. Great option from the bench for United.

Fred: 5
Had little impact on the game although he improved over defence as compared to Matic.

Axel Tuanzebe: 7
Great game. Put in a crucial last-ditch challenge to save United after an Ashley Young error. He has shown he is miles ahead of Smalling and Jones.

Ashley Young: 4
Made a sloppy error that almost cost United.

Mason Greenwood: 6
Was close to grabbing a winner but directed his header wide of goal from Gomes’ cross.

Angel Gomes: 6
Showed his huge potential with some stylish play and dangerous runs.

Conclusion:
As you can notice, it was an above average performance from most of the squad. Not really good enough.
