David De Gea: 7/10

Alert when called upon, but not much to do today. Well organized defense.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka: 6/10

Not super involved today. Little to do defensively, and not a threat offensively.

Eric Bailly: 7/10

Good in partnership with Maguire again, and with Victor Lindelof seemingIy available for selection as well.

Harry Maguire: 8/10

Alert defending, and should have had a goal in the first half. Won a header and sent it past Pope, but was wrongfully denied by the referee for a supposed foul on the header.

Luke Shaw: 7/10

Wasn’t enormously effective in attack, but got forward often. Got on a yellow after an odd VAR review.

Nemanja Matic: 7/10

Played the ball forward well. Put in a good 90 minutes of work and provided good help in possession.

Paul Pogba: 9/10

Brilliant goal to break the deadlock in the second half. Looked creative for much of the game, and got forward well. Was going to be important in a game that United expected to have possession, and turned up with the goods when called upon.

Bruno Fernandes: 6/10

Ineffective today. United needed a creative spark in midfield to break down Burnley, but Bruno wasn’t able to deliver on that today. Turnovers and fatigue today.

Anthony Martial: 6/10

Probably should have scored on a couple of occasions, but came up short. Hit a brilliant curling strike in the first half that Pope just tipped wide.

Edinson Cavani: 6/10

Lacked key involvement. Set up a good chance for Martial, and missed a couple chances of his own. Good energy throughout.

Marcus Rashford: 6/10

Ineffective for most of the match, but kept pressuring Burnley’s back line. Came off in the second half, but not before helping to set up Pogba’s winning goal.


Scott McTominay: 6/10

Good energy in defense to see things out.

Mason Greenwood: N/A

Came on to boost the attack, but didn’t see many chances to do so.

Axel Tuanzebe: N/A

Came on late.


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: 8/10

Picked a good side to possess and try to break down Burnley. Paul Pogba came up with the goods eventually, and rewarded a United side that had to be patient with decisions going against them and chances not falling kindly. United are top of the league, and won in a difficult game with the pressure on to do so.
