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




Ronaldo, Cristiano


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




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




Arrived late and booked. 5




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
