Manchester United were comfortable victors in a 2-0 win against Leeds United in their first pre-season outing of 2023.

Noam Emeran and Joe Hugill grabbed the second-half goals as Erik ten Hag provided chances to many young players across the opening game.

The first-half saw a more experienced eleven, which included new signing Mason Mount, and then there were 11 changes at half-time.

Many players got important minutes under their belt and United came out winners. A perfect afternoon for Ten Hag’s men.

UtdDistrict’s full player ratings can be read below:

Tom Heaton – 7/10

Communicated well and good sweeping action. Little to do.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 7/10

Solid performance and got forward regularly.

Raphael Varane – 7/10

A lot of time on the ball. Decent first game back for the Frenchman.

Lisandro Martinez – 8/10

Great to see him back on a football pitch. Brilliant as usual.

Alvaro Fernandez – 8/10

A very impressive cameo, regularly finding nice forward passes.

Kobbie Mainoo – 9/10

Oozes class and ran the game in the midfield. A very, very talented prospect.

Mason Mount – 8/10

First minutes for the club and was on free-kick and corner duty. Impressed and almost scored an audacious lobbed effort from 35 yards out.

Hannibal Mejbri – 8/10

Returning from loan and he looked fired up. Despite somehow getting a yellow card, he was one of the best players on the pitch and almost scored.

Jadon Sancho – 6/10

Off the pace slightly. Some good interchanging pieces of play with others but a miss control ruined a good chance for a goal.

Amad Diallo – 7.5/10

Dangerous option from the right and linked up well with others. Needed a little more spark in his final actions though.

Omari Forson – 7/10

A solid showing from the young winger.

Second half XI

Matej Kovar – 7/10

Composed performance from the young goalkeeper.

Marc Jurado – 7/10

Looks good on the ball.

Will Fish – 7/10

Some good pieces of defending.

Rhys Bennett – 6/10

Solid outing.

Brandon Williams – 7/10

Some nice passes on the left side.

Charlie Savage – 6/10

A couple loose passes. Proud moment to captain his club.

Isak Hansen-Aaoren – 8/10

Great pass to Emeran to open the scoring. Solid performance in his home country.

Dan Gore – 7/10

Another young player with a good performance.

Shola Shoretire – 7/10

A solid outing.

Noam Emeran – 9/10

Brilliant from the young Frenchman. A goal and an assist and so dangerous on the right.

Joe Hugill – 8/10

A striker’s finish that United need to get his goal. Worked hard and held up the ball on a number of occasions well.
