Starters

David De Gea: 8/10

Bad defending cost De Gea a clean sheet, but he was alert whenever Spurs threatened. Crucial save on a late chance by Dele Alli.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka: 6/10

Solid performance, could have been more influential going forward.

Victor Lindelof: 6/10

United’s defense wasn’t tested as much as some might have expected, but did well for the most part. Lindelof was left scrambling a couple times but overall a solid outing.

Harry Maguire: 6/10

Decent when called upon, but not super impactful.

Ashley Young: 4/10

Not a very good outing from Young. Partially at fault for the goal, and left his man with way too much space on multiple occasions.

Scott McTominay: 7/10

Good performance returning from injury for McTominay. His grit and work rate were sorely missed, and Andreas Pereira’s cameo was just another reminder of what Ole was left to work with in his and Pogba’s absence.

Fred: 5/10

Gave the ball away a few times, but settled in and formed a decent midfield wall with McTominay. Spurs struggled to create meaningful possession consistently.

Jesse Lingard: 5/10

Some decent involvement in the first half, but didn’t do a lot after the opening half hour.

Daniel James: 6/10

Didn’t do a lot apart from a couple of dangerous attempts, but Gazzaniga was up for it. Was important in the initial dominance early in the match.

Marcus Rashford: 9/10

Rashford was out for goals from the moment this match started. Put in an excellent performance on the left wing, scoring twice and remaining United’s best offensive threat all game. He’s well on pace for his best individual season.

Mason Greenwood: 5/10

Didn’t do a lot to get involved after the opening flurry, but nice to see him get a meaningful start.

Substitutes

Andreas Pereira: N/A

Not on long, but managed to give the ball away at least once.

Luke Shaw: N/A

Not on long, maybe should have started ahead of Young.

Manager

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: 6/10

Solskjaer’s team were up for this one, especially Marcus Rashford. Defensive organization was a bit worrying when tested, but they only conceded once. Ashley Young maybe the only starter that didn’t justify their place ahead of other options. Substitutions seemed odd, but didn’t end up being costly.
