Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer might have silenced his critics for a little while with a dominating 3-0 away win against Tottenham on Saturday.

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

Substitutions

Marcus Rashford – 7

Scored his third goal in four games since returning from injury coming off the bench as a super sub
