Manchester United player ratings as Raphael Varane and Diogo Dalot good vs Southampton

Manchester United defeated Southampton in the Premier League at St Mary’s Stadium, and here’s how the players fared.

De Gea, David

 

He was so sluggish with the ball that he either slowed down or killed potential attacks. At 1-0, he made a clean stop.

 

Dalot, Diogo

 

Could have had an assist in the first half and received one when Bruno Fernandes volleyed in his cross in the second. 7

 

Varane, Raphael

 

It’s easy to see why Erik ten Hag called him “immense” on Friday. Alongside Lisandro Martinez, he is calmly authoritative. 8

 

Martinez, Lisandro

 

Guilty of the odd lapse, yet sturdy enough without a battering ram to earn the respect of United fans. 7

 

Malacia, Tyrell

 

With a wayward ball, he almost got United into trouble, but he was solid in his first away start against Southampton’s athletic right side. 6

 

McTominay, Scott

 

Irked United fans early in the second half with a backward pass as he fought to justify his starting spot ahead of Casemiro. Charged with a cynical foul. 5

 

Eriksen, Christian

 

When Eriksen was on the ball, United were at their most commanding in the first half. In the second, he couldn’t get enough of it. 6

 

Fernandes, Bruno

 

He was sloppy, reckless, selfish, and a hindrance until he broke the deadlock with a spectacular volley to save his performance. 6

 

Sancho Jadon

 

When he wanted to be more direct against Kyle Walker-Peters, he moved to the left side and dawdled on the ball too much. 5

 

Elanga, Anthony

 

He was light in the first half but lithe in the second, and he was instrumental in Fernandes’ goal. Leicester may struggle to get off to a good start. 5

 

Rashford, Marcus

 

I began again in the middle and demonstrated why he is better from the left. When Cristiano Ronaldo came on, he was moved to the left. 5

 

Subs

 

Ronaldo, Cristiano

 

There was no substantial contact, and the player was caught offside. 5

 

Casemiro

 

In the 80th minute, he came on to assist United maintain their lead. 6

 

Fred

 

Arrived late and booked. 5

 

Manager

 

It was understandable to name an unchanged team, but moving Elanga and Sancho did not work, and United reverted to individuality until they scored. 6
