Manchester United player ratings of the 2023/24 season: Three 9/10s



| Last Updated:


Manchester United won the FA Cup in their final game of an ultimately disappointing 2023/24 campaign but still managed to qualify for the Europa League.

The Reds made difficult work of a season that was originally planned to be even better than the last. In the Premier League they finished eighth and they were knocked out of the Champions League in the group stages.

Although performances were lacking for most of the season, Erik ten Hag’s side still provided the best game of the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era, beating Manchester City at Wembley to secure the FA Cup.

In a season with many downs but several extremely elating ups, UtdDistrict has rated every player with more than five appearances across the campaign.

André Onana – 6/10

It was a terrible season for a goalkeeper to come into the club, considering the defensive changes in front of him from week to week. Still, there were major errors on Onana’s part, and he was mostly responsible for the Champions League exit. Otherwise, he mostly offered solid displays in the league.

Diogo Dalot – 9/10

The players’ player of the season at Old Trafford, and it was an award richly deserved. Only missed three games all season – one being due to a comical red card he received against Liverpool – and was the club’s most consistent player across the season. Improved final third actions and also defensively solid among an ever-changing back four.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 6/10

He had an excellent display in the FA Cup final, but performances were not as consistent across the season – partly due to two different injuries interrupting his campaign. He looked uncomfortable at left-back when he played there and didn’t ‘lock up’ as many wingers as in previous years, but he had a decent season nonetheless.

Harry Maguire – 7/10

A solid season from the defender that 99% of fans wanted to leave in the summer, but injuries hampered his form and unfortunately ruled him out of the FA Cup final. Overall, a very decent campaign for Maguire, who definitely changed opinions on him throughout.

Victor Lindelöf – 5/10

It was a disappointing campaign which was filled with injuries and underwhelming performances. After looking so comfortable when he came into the defence last term, Lindelöf was not able to recreate that same level when he played this season.

Willy Kambwala – 6/10

The young defender made a decent impression during his debut campaign with the first-team squad. He had an excellent performance against Liverpool at Old Trafford but also got bullied against Bournemouth. He still has a lot to learn, but his passion has also been quite infectious.

Lisandro Martínez – 6/10

What a player who has unfortunately been unavailable for the most part of the season. A huge contribution in the FA Cup final and United fans will be desperate for him to keep fit next term.

Raphaël Varane – 7.5/10

He made more appearances than any other United centre-back, which might be a surprise considering the view around his injury troubles. Was also left out of the team for a period of time but never sulked and worked his way back into the side. United’s best centre-back this term and an excellent display in the cup final allowed him to leave the club with another trophy in his cabinet.

Jonny Evans – 7/10

The man who was supposed to play one or two Carabao Cup fixtures ended up making 30 appearances, with one of them being in the FA Cup final. I don’t think he or the fans would’ve expected that. He was solid and better than we could’ve expected, but still, errors came simply due to his age and being in the setup that was operating at Old Trafford for the season.

Luke Shaw – 4/10

Unfortunately unavailable for a large chunk of the season after rushing back into the team. This is perhaps the injury which will lead United to sign a top-class left-back, but Shaw’s performances when he played did show how important he was to so much of United’s general play.

Sergio Reguilon – 6.5/10

It seemed that the Spanish loanee was the perfect fit for a full-season loan. Passionate, hard worker and, most importantly, a left-back. He was decent during his short spell at Old Trafford, and the decision-makers probably now wish they had never sent him back in January.

Sofyan Amrabat – 5.5/10

The loanee was not often afforded chances in his preferred position but worked his way into the team at the end of the season and produced a brilliant FA Cup final display. Ultimately, he often looked too slow for the pace of the Premier League but will likely argue he was never really given the chance to get used to it.

Casemiro – 4/10

A really disappointing campaign for the Brazilian, who was superb last season. Injuries and the team setup certainly did not help, but ultimately he underperformed.

Kobbie Mainoo – 9/10

Like a duck to water. His first full season in the professional game? No one would’ve thought it. Brilliant and consistent performances despite being thrown in mid-way through a season that was also being derailed. Amid the chaos, Mainoo was the calm and offered some brilliant moments along the way, including the late winner at Wolves, the superb goal against Liverpool, and of course, the FA Cup final goal.

Christan Eriksen – 4/10

The season has probably told Eriksen that his time at the highest level is almost over. In a midfield that needed more running than usual, he crumbled too often out of possession. That horrific injury he sustained last term still seems to have a lasting effect too.

Mason Mount – 3/10

His debut campaign at Old Trafford was frustrating and filled with injuries – a pattern we’re beginning to notice. His form in late September/early October showed signs of what he could offer the team but we are still waiting to see if he can really be a piece to the puzzle at United.

Scott McTominay – 8/10

His best goalscoring season for the club and single-handedly won points for the team in the Premier League. Performances were not always clean or pretty, but he was certainly one of the better players during the season.

Hannibal Mejbri – 6/10

A season that involved a stunning goal against Brighton and a very impressive performance away at Burnley. It seemed like he would be more involved, but his campaign at Old Trafford was limited to 10 appearances before an underwhelming January loan to Sevilla.

Bruno Fernandes – 8/10

A solid season from the club captain who saved his best performance until the final game at Wembley, where he helped drag United to victory. His campaign also included important goals and assists. There is still another level for him to reach in a better overall team, though.

Antony – 3/10

After an OK debut campaign, it seemed like a make-or-break season for Antony, who has hugely disappointed. He ended the Premier League campaign with a single goal and assist despite being involved for most of the season. Ten Hag trusted him up until the final point of the campaign. The Liverpool equaliser bumps his rating up slightly.

Facundo Pellistri – 5.5/10

Some good contributions off the bench but struggled when he started in a couple of difficult games. Loaned out in January.

Amad Diallo – 7/10

After waiting a long time for his chance, Amad took it with both hands. He would’ve felt disappointed to not start, or come on in, the cup final, but also played his part in the FA Cup triumph with the Liverpool winner. Solid performances in the little game-time he received.

Marcus Rashford – 4/10

A disappointing campaign for Rashford who was the club’s top scorer last term. Both on and off the pitch he struggled, but his performances on the pitch were not quite as poor as some have made out. Much-needed improvement needed next term still.

Alejandro Garnacho – 9/10

After being the super-sub last term, Garnacho turned into the player with the joint-most starts this season. He has constantly threatened opposition backlines, scored the goal of the season, and never hid away despite the amount of football he was playing. Showed some extremely impressive performances on the right-wing as well. Scored in the cup final and was involved in the second goal too.

Rasmus Højlund – 7/10

16 goals in his debut season, despite the difficulties, is a decent return. A lot of improvement is needed, and also likely another striker to compete with. But we came away from the season with excitement about what Højlund can become.

Anthony Martial – 3/10

In his final season at Old Trafford, it was unfortunately filled with the injuries that derailed his career. A few decent performances at the start of the season.

Omari Forson – 5/10

Involved in Mainoo’s winner at Wolves but struggled to make any real impact in his few cameos.
