Man United vs Villarreal voting: Cristiano Ronaldo and Jesse Lingard good – Samuel Luckhurst

David De Gea

Excellent save by Arnaut Danjuma and made four saves in the first half alone. Their defenses failed again because of Paco Alcacer’s goal. 8

Diogo Dalot

Flushed out by Danjuma with alarming ease on a night of punishment and guilty of the first goal. He’s unlikely to topple Aaron Wan-Bissaka. 3

Victor lindelof

A downgrade from Harry Maguire, who has had his own bad start to the season. Loose for most of the night and run. 4

Raphael varane

He was wrong when he misread a deep pass and Paco Alcacer had a free kick. He walked towards goal, but easily the strongest of United’s four defenders. 6

Alex tal

He must be grateful that Villarreal targeted United’s right-back, but Telles was a suspect in most of the games. He stunned with a spectacular United first goal. Important block late. 6

Scott McTominay

It didn’t make much of a difference without Fred alongside Paul Pogba. He continued with Pogba but there wasn’t much between them. 5

Paul pogba

Incisive passing attempts and one nearly resulted in an own goal. Otherwise, he didn’t fit McTominay in the two. 5

Mason Greenwood

I struggled at times and never really got going. He pulled a save from Geronimo Rulli at 1-1 and crossed magnificently for Edinson Cavani to miss. 6

Bruno fernandes

Aggressive, but easily angered too often. Good vision to get Telles from the free kick that United tied. 6

Jadon sancho

He had some brilliant moments in the first half but another strong performance and Sancho was substituted again. 5

Cristiano Ronaldo

He lacked service and was immobile in the moments when United had possession in the Villarreal half. Then he won it in Fergie’s time. 7


Nemanja Matic

It brought balance. 6

Edinson cavani

He missed a babysitter, but he kept going and was key in the goal. 6

Jesse lingard

Involved in the goal and helped win the game. 7


Key cross to death. 6

Coach – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

He chose a side determined enough, but the balance didn’t work and not tackling it at halftime cost United a goal. He made no changes until minute 74 and the formation seemed to remain the same but the substitutes had a great impact. 6
