Here are the player ratings from Manchester United’s 1-0 win over Omonia Nicosia in the Europa League
David de Gea - 7
Wasn’t very busy but is starting to add bits to his own game that we haven’t seen often enough.
Diogo Dalot - 6
Still waiting for him to make that step up in the attacking third.
Victor Lindelof - 6
Got done for pace once in the first half but was fine for most of the game.
Lisandro Martínez - 7
Become one of the first names on the team sheet. Another solid performance.
Tyrell Malacia - 6
Didn’t make too many errors in possession and got forward a bit more but it’s not enough for now.
Casemiro - 7
Seems to have finally found that sharpness. Has also been a goal threat in recent games. It’ll come if he continues.
Fred - 6
Really important for the team’s counter-press as Ten Hag mentioned in his pre-match interview but didn’t do enough to claim a starting berth.
Bruno Fernandes - 4
Wasteful in the final third. He hasn’t been hitting the numbers he once used to.
Marcus Rashford - 7
Was lively in the first half and forced quite a few brilliant saves from Francis Uzoho.
Cristiano Ronaldo -4
A bit anonymous throughout the game.
Antony - 6
Forced Uzohu into one good save. Took a lot of touches but wasn’t able to really affect the game often enough.
Luke Shaw - 7
Was excellent off the bench alongside Jadon Sancho.
Jadon Sancho - 8
Has come under some scrutiny recently. Did very well when he came on and had a part in McTominay’s goal. With a full-back making runs and all that territory, Sancho is United’s best lock-picker. A great team usually creates those conditions regularly and if Ten Hag can manage that, Sancho’ll be a real asset.
Scott McTominay - 7
Made up for his poor decision to shoot from range when a pass was available by scoring the winning goal.
Christian Eriksen - N/A
Erik ten Hag - 6
Couldn’t do a lot about Uzohu’s heroics. Played a strong squad and got his subs right. Will be hoping to qualify for the knockouts by the next game and give his regulars a rest. Has brought some calmness to the club.
