We waited more than three months for that?

Starters

David de Gea: 4/10

Gets two hands on Bergwijn’s shot but the ball still deflects in. You got to think he can do better on that save.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka: 6/10

Put in a couple good crosses that were dangerous — Souness probably looked the other way.

Victor Lindelöf: 5/10

He was fine.

Harry Maguire: 4/10

Caught flat-footed and completely turned around during Bergwijn’s goal-scoring run. You expect the captain to do better on the track back.

Luke Shaw: 4/10

If it wasn’t for that donk, he’d be totally forgettable.

Fred: 5/10

Caught chasing Bergwijn in the midfield and would’ve been better off commiting the cynical foul. Played a beautiful ball from an indirect kick that should’ve been put into the back of the net by Rashford.

Scott McTominay: 5/10

Still undefeated against “The Big Six” but dapping up José Mourinho after the match is against the social distancing protocols and also just not great optics, my guy.

Bruno Fernandes: 7/10

Kind of a weird game for the midfielder as it appeared that he was trying to do the most on the pitch. Had a couple errant passes and shots, but ultimately, he delivered the equalizer with a penalty conversion as cool as you like.

Marcus Rashford: 6/10

Tough showing on his return. Had one shot in the first half that Hugo Lloris barely saved with his foot, but on his best chance of the night on a set piece, he couldn’t quite get to the ball for the easy header.

Anthony Martial: 5/10

Really should’ve been on the scoresheet but Lloris did his best Michael Jordan in Space Jam impression and extended his arm a couple extra inches to make the save of his life.

Daniel James: 3/10

Deservedly earned the yank in the 60th minute in favor of Mason Greenwood. Just couldn’t get it going on the right side. Gutted for my son, Daniel — he’s clearly still playing heavy-legged from too much action in his first season in Red.

Substitutes

Paul Pogba: 8/10

Instant impact the moment he walked onto the pitch, and we’re crediting him with the unofficial assist for Bruno’s converted penalty. Shame Pogba didn’t start — it’s almost like he is one of the best players in the entire galaxy.

Mason Greenwood: 6/10

Nearly ended Mourinho at the death with a low driven show that went just wide. Wonder what he does with more than 30 minutes on the field.

Odion Ighalo: N/A

Smiled when I saw him walk onto the pitch. Don’t remember much else.

Nemanja Matić: N/A

(shrugging shoulders emoji)

Eric Bailly: N/A

Came on for McTominay in the 89th minute to see out the draw.

Manager

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: 4/10

Team sheet was geared too defensively in the beginning of the match despite the team dominating possession. Solskjaer didn’t put out his best XI until the 60th minute when Pogba and Greenwood came on. The manager was lucky to get a point against Mourinho in North London.
