Starters

Sergio Romero: 7/10

Had a couple of really good saves today, including one that stopped Wolves taking a first half lead. Now has 6 clean sheets this season.

Ashley Young: 6/10

Not the worst performance at right back from Young, and actually appeared physically up to the challenge of the Wolves counter. Still, didn’t offer much going forward, and some of Wolves’ best chances came from his side of the field.

Victor Lindelof: 6/10

Some scary moments from Lindelof, but no costly errors.

Harry Maguire: 5/10

Another shaky performance from Maguire. Not as good on the ball as he has been, and only a clumsy handball prevented Doherty from taking full advantage of Maguire’s poor positioning.

Brandon Williams: 7/10

Solid display from the young left back. Dealt well with the threat of Adama Traore, and continues to back the argument for him to be first choice over a struggling Luke Shaw.

Nemanja Matic: 4/10

Too slow, not creative enough, adds nothing to United’s midfield. At times Maguire overtook him and filled his position because he was too slow getting up the pitch.

Andreas Pereira: 4/10

Didn’t bring much to midfield. Played out of position alongside Matic so perhaps was a bit uncomfortable, but hasn’t done much this season to indicate he’s useful in his desired position either.

Juan Mata: 6/10

Had some decent moments, including a clever free kick attempt. He’s still got good awareness, but the mileage on his legs has clearly added up. Still, could have been more effective with better partners in midfield.

Tahith Chong: 5/10

He’s started poorly and settled down as the match went on, but wasn’t really creative enough. Looked more confident on the ball in the second half.

Daniel James: 5/10

Failed to influence the match, struggling at the moment.

Mason Greenwood: 6/10

Looked like United’s brightest player for much of the game. Unlucky not to have more help in the offensive third.

Substitutes

Fred: 5/10

Rested a bit, but came on in the second half to give the midfield life. Clearly more involved than Pereira or Matic had been to that point, but not enough to influence the match.

Marcus Rashford: 5/10

Had a decent chance soon after coming on, but didn’t do much after.

Diogo Dalot: 3/10

No positive moments, careless with the ball.

Manager

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: 4/10

Looked to be a starting lineup made with City in mind in just 3 day’s time. A relatively useless midfield display yet again, but managed to hold on against a decent Wolves side. Still, lack of shape creativity is a huge problem at the moment, and a replay is the last thing this depleted squad needs this month.
