Player Ratings: Brighton 4-0 Manchester United

Manchester United were utterly demolished by Brighton & Hove Albion on the south coast. A 4-0 loss is embarrassing to any team, but looks even worse against a team who, before this encounter, were averaging less than a goal a game and had the fourth worst home record in the Premier League.

Player Ratings

David de Gea – 2/10

Poor performance, could argue he should’ve done better for some of the goals. In possession was far outshone by Brighton’s Robert Sanchez.

Diogo Dalot – 6.5/10

One of the only players who never gave up, showed a lot of fight from start to finish. Was unlucky for the Leandro Trossard goal.

Victor Lindelöf – 2/10

Poor performance at the back from the Swede.

Raphaël Varane – 2/10

Poor performance. Should have done better for a couple of the goals and was unlucky not to give one away to Danny Welbeck in the first half.

Alex Telles – 1/10

I honestly didn’t even want to give him a rating, he was that poor. Consistently targeted by Brighton down his side, offered nothing offensively.

Scott Mctominay – 2/10

Bullied from start to finish in midfield. Lost all his ground duels and committed five fouls.

Nemanja Matic – 5/10

One of our better players in the first half, was hooked off at half time and so missed the second half horror show.

Anthony Elanga – 2/10

Ineffective all first half, completing just one pass. Was taken off at at half time alongside Matic.

Juan Mata – 3/10

Completely ineffective in the number ten role, probably shouldn’t have started against an energetic and possession-based side like Brighton.

Bruno Fernandes – 4/10

Tried to make things happen, but to no avail.

Cristiano Ronaldo – 3/10

Was completely anonymous up front.

Substitutes

Fred – 5/10

Brought what we expected from the bench, lots of intensity and drive. As always one of our last men standing, but was largely ineffective.

Edinson Cavani – 4/10

Squandered a good headed chance and had he left Maguire’s shot that he turned in from an offside position we may have been able to pull one back.

Harry Maguire – 5/10

Somehow our most dangerous attacking threat, came close to scoring immediately after coming on and maybe would have had the offside Edinson Cavani not touched the ball.
