Player Ratings: Aston Villa vs Manchester United (Premier League)



| Last Updated:


Manchester United won 2-1 against Aston Villa in the Premier League after a late winner from Scott McTominay.

United earned their lead through Rasmus Højlund, who is in red-hot form at the moment. Harry Maguire provided the important assist for the striker.

However, whilst Erik ten Hag’s side were ahead, it seemed obvious that a goal from the hosts would come sooner or later. Douglous Luiz scored midway through the second half.

Substitute Scott McTominay was able to secure the win with a powerful header, though, and United clawed their way closer to the top four.

The player ratings can be read below.

André Onana – 7.5/10

Some very important saves and sweeper actions. Kept United in the game.

Diogo Dalot – 8.5/10

Man of the Match. Continued impressive form, was excellent defensively and offered a lot going forward, including the pinpoint cross to McTominay for United to win the game.

Raphaël Varane – 6.5/10

His man run across him several times and was bailed out by Onana on at least one occasion but he was active and decent in passing. Decent on a tough night.

Harry Maguire – 7.5/10

Great assist and mostly solid. Got turned on a couple of occasions.

Luke Shaw – 6/10

Good performance. Worrying to come off at half-time.

Casemiro – 4.5/10

A worrying performance. Villa exposed the space in behind him and Mainoo too often.

Kobbie Mainoo – 7/10

Found difficulties out of possession, but great in possession again and absolutely key to United’s winner.

Bruno Fernandes – 6/10

Nothing special today. Got through a lot of work though.

Alejandro Garnacho – 7/10

Threatening all game whenever he’s could get forward. Also looking very unselfish on that right side, looked for Højlund several times with crosses. Slightly more direct and shoot-first when moved to the left.

Rasmus Højlund – 7.5/10

Another game, another goal. Excellent striker’s goal and overall game was solid too.

Marcus Rashford – 6.5/10

Looked dangerous again on the left. Linked up well and created some good chances through direct play.


Victor Lindelöf – 4/10

Found his return very difficult out of position.

Scott McTominay – 8/10

Clutch player. Great header to win the game.

Sofyan Amrabat – N/A

Jonny Evans – N/A
