Man United player ratings vs Leicester as Raphael Varane superb and Christian Eriksen good

The Manchester United players evaluated themselves after Jadon Sancho’s strike sealed a 1-0 victory at the King Power Stadium.

De Gea, David

 

In his greatest performance this season, he was much better with the ball at his feet and denied James Maddison with a fantastic save. 7

 

Dalot, Diogo

 

Did a fantastic job get the relocation started? Jadon Sancho scored after being proactive in attack and smooth on the ball, but he was booked. 7

 

Varane, Raphael

 

He didn’t make a single mistake the entire night, and it’s strange to imagine he was temporarily fourth-choice center-back in pre-season. Another outstanding performance. 8

 

Martinez, Lisandro

 

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy was brought off in the final five minutes after doing admirably against him. In another outstanding performance, defended tenaciously. 8

 

Malacia, Tyrell

 

Until he was brutally booked for upending Boubakary Soumare, he was quietly efficient. Another strong but understated performance. 7

 

McTominay, Scott

 

As Leicester sought to entice him into tight traps, he anchored the middle with discipline. Panicked at times in the second half, but played well. 6

 

Eriksen, Christian

 

Elegant on the ball, he kept United’s play moving. United showed superb control, barely wasting a pass. 7

 

Fernandes, Bruno

 

Hit his cue in the play that led to Sancho’s goal, and he wasn’t as wasteful with the ball as he was at Southampton. The final third could have been more intense. 6

 

Elanga, Anthony

 

He provided energy up front but was ineffective with the ball, and he was replaced after only 15 minutes of the second half. 5

 

Sancho Jadon

 

Took a great goal to put United up 1-0, his second of the season. After that, he was quiet and made way for Cristiano Ronaldo. 7

 

Rashford, Marcus

 

He wonderfully timed his assist for Sancho and was much better through the middle than on Saturday, but he never looked like scoring. 6

 

Subs

 

Casemiro

 

He was proactive in his passes and only made a huge mistake once. 6

 

Ronaldo, Cristiano

 

The ball was used well. and possibly had a goal. 6

 

Fred

 

Came on to finish the game. 6

 

Manager

 

Many were surprised when he named an unchanged starting lineup, but United dominated the first half, and he acted proactively in the second half by sending Casemiro on soon. 7
