The usual predictable 4-2-3-1 formation that United typically plays was changed a bit for this match, opting to go with two strikers in a three-at-the-back formation, a decision Solskjaer proved works well.
David de Gea – 6
When you don’t have any saves to make, everyone looks like a hero
Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 7
His first-half goal-saving tackle was a tremendous improvement from the Liverpool match last week.
Victor Lindelof – 7
Kept his place in the side as Solskjaer switched to a 3-5-2 and didn’t look out of place.
Raphael Varane – 10 (Man of the Match)
Proved how desperately United needs him in the lienup.
Harry Maguire – 7
An improvement on last week for sure.
Luke Shaw – 6
Still not playing at the level he was at last year but he recovered from his first-half miscues to have a decent match.
Scott McTominay – 9
Finally played to the level he is capable of
Fred – 9
Incredible match and was very close to a highlight-reel goal
Bruno Fernandes – 8
Proved why he is world-class once again
Edinson Cavani – 8
A vintage Cavani performance we are accustomed to seeing. He scored his first goal of the season but limped off in the 2nd half.
Cristiano Ronaldo – 9
A goal and assist just when doubts were creeping into people’s minds about his impact with United 2.0
Marcus Rashford – 7
Scored his third goal in four games since returning from injury coming off the bench as a super sub
