Manchester United 1-0 Wolves Player Ratings:
David De Gea(GK) – (7/10): Looked very good and made few excellent saves as well. He is showing his old form again.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka(RB) – (6/10): Went forward but couldn’t provide anything significant for the forward players and defensively looked solid.
Eric Bailly(CB) – (6.5/10): Stopped a few counter-attacks and did well in his third outing in just a week.
Harry Maguire(CB) – (7/10): He was a calm influence in defence and did a good job against quick attackers also passed the ball nicely.
Alex Telles(LB) – (6/10): Played well going forward but could not find the final ball. In the end, substituted at the half time.
Nemanja Matic(CDM) – (8/10): He was excellent at the heart of the midfield, distribution was excellent and defensively made few great interceptions as well.
Paul Pogba(CM) – (6/10): Not his best performance but tried to create for his forward players and hit an almost perfect technical shot in the second half.
Bruno Fernandes(CAM) – (6.5/10): Overall a not good performance but the long ball for the goal was awesome. Missed a great chance in the first half.
Mason Greenwood(RW) – (5/10): Wasn’t a good performance but produced a great cross in the first half, but apart from that nothing much to mention.
Edinson Cavani(CF) – (6/10): Looked energetic and worked very hard. Scored a goal but disallowed for offside.
Marcus Rashford(LW) – (7/10): Didn’t look good throughout the match but came up with the most important contribution for his team at the 93rd minute of the game off his left foot.
Luke Shaw(LB) – (6.5/10): Came on at half time and stopped the threat of Adama Traore immediately and went forward well.
Anthony Martial(LW) – (6/10): Like his teammates struggled to break the Wolves defence but tracked back his man to help out the defence.
Scott McTominay(CM) – (N/A): Didn’t have time to do anything.
Rui Patricio(GK) – (7/10): Showed his quality and reflex. Made two excellent saves but could not do anything for the goal as it deflected and put him on the wrong foot.
Conor Coady(CB) – (6/10): Didn’t have to do anything significant, just a handball scare in the second half.
Romain Saiss(CB) – (7.5/10): Excellent display from him in defence and attack as well but unlucky to concede the goal of his deflection.
Max Kilman(CB) – (6/10): Did his job well but conceded the goal from his side, overall he did very well.
Ki-Jana Hoever(RWB) – (6/10): Made his first Premier League start but didn’t look like that he looked very good and he might be a better option than Nelson Semedo.
Rayan Ait-Nouri(LWB) – (6/10): Did good but looked tired at the end and eventually pay the price.
Joao Moutinho(CM) – (6.5/10): Delivery from set-pieces were excellent and overall an excellent game from him.
Ruben Neves(CM) – (6.5/10): Had a powerful strike and saved by De Gea. Worked very hard in midfield.
Vitinha(CAM) – (6/10): Showed some good touches but could not do anything important and taken off in the second half.
Adama Traore(CF) – (6/10): Started the game brilliantly but didn’t have much joy against Shaw in the second half.
Pedro Neto(CF) – (6/10): He was a threat in the first half but could not do much in the second half.
Daniel Podence(CAM) – (5.5/10) He came on early in the second half for Vitinha but couldn’t do anything.
Fabio Silva(CF) – (5.5/10): Replaced Neto but did nothing in last half an hour.
Man of the match:
Nemanja Matic is our man of the match, he shielded the defence excellently and did very well with the ball and he was good at defending by himself.
