Manchester United player ratings as Sofyan Amrabat and Kobbie Mainoo brilliant vs Man City


 Andre Onana

Had staggeringly little to do in the first half against a shot-shy City but brilliantly repelled Kyle Walker's piledriver as City cranked up the pressure. Onana cracked when he conceded to Jeremy Doku. 6

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Defended solidly and was expertly guided by Raphael Varane on his last start for United. Jeremy Doku came on at half-time but Wan-Bissaka pocketed him. 8

Raphael Varane

Showed why Erik ten Hag has oft-lamented his and Lisandro Martinez's absence. A last dance to savour on his final appearance for United. 8

Lisandro Martinez

Offered silk and steel in his reunion with Varane, unsettling Erling Haaland and Phil Foden early on whilst orchestrating the backline. 8

Diogo Dalot

His hopeful hoik led to the first goal but Dalot's overall performance was of an elite full back, even playing out of position on the left. 8

Sofyan Amrabat

His hustling of City without the ball whilst directing teammates where to move typified United's compact performance. An impregnable shield. 9

Kobbie Mainoo

The Stockport lad was thriving before he scored and saluted the blue hordes who had travelled from Stockport. Capped a wonderful six months. 8

Marcus Rashford

Embarked on an early sprint of intent against Kyle Walker and his running off the ball pegged City back a number of times. Earned a deserved ovation. 8

Scott McTominay

Positioned as the No.10, McTominay was the glue between the midfield and attack as United operated in a functioning unit. His athleticism was key to their off-the-ball work. 8

Alejandro Garnacho

Had a decent chance before he capitalised on Josko Gvardiol and Stefan Ortega's mix-up to put United ahead. There was a sense of anticipation whenever he got the ball. 8

Bruno Fernandes

A performance in keeping with his status as Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year. His blind-pass of an assist for Mainoo was exquisite. 8

Subs

Rasmus Hojlund

Brought energy to the frontline. 7

Jonny Evans

Completed the domestic set of medals with United. 7

Victor Lindelof

Came on in added time. N/A

Mason Mount

Also came on in added time. N/A

Manager

Got his selections perfect and United played the perfect first half, heading in 2-0 up. Carefully waited to make his first changes and the players did not let him down. 9
