Player Ratings: Manchester United vs Chelsea (Premier League)



| Last Updated:


Manchester United produced an impressive performance against Chelsea as they won 2-1 in their Premier League clash.

The Reds played their best football in a good while and could’ve won by more goals if Bruno Fernandes’ penalty was not saved and other chances were taken.

Scott McTominay’s early finish gave United a deserved lead, yet some passive defending just before half-time allowed Cole Palmer to score an equaliser for Chelsea at Old Trafford.

It was the Scotsman again in the second half, however, who scored his and United’s second goal to secure three points.

The player ratings, so far, can be read below.

Andre Onana – 7.5/10

Brilliant one-on-one save mid-way through the first half to keep the lead at the time. Maybe some fault for the equaliser? But seemed unsighted and a good finish from Palmer the opposite direction. Solid distribution overall.

Diogo Dalot – 8/10

Some really good passes inside the pitch to help United progress. Some nice moments on the flank too.

Harry Maguire -8/10

Good first half. Great second half. Some important blocks and interceptions throughout.

Victor Lindelof – 5/10

Decent but too passive against Palmer, giving him the chance to move and finish for Chelsea. Subbed at half-time.

Luke Shaw – 7.5/10

Solid first half. Helped going forward, settijng Hojlund up with a delightful through-ball. Moved to centre-back after half-time and was steady.

Sofyan Amrabat – 7.5/10

A couple of shaky moments defensively early on, but helped United dominate and calm themselves in possession whilst improving massively in the press and out of possession in the second half.

Scott McTominay – 9/10

Absolutely brilliant inside the area to score both of United’s goals. He’s got parts of his game which are questionable but his ability in the box is great.

Bruno Fernandes – 7.5/10

Hop, skip and a… miss. Fair play to Sanchez for sticking on his line until Bruno took the penalty. Solid performance otherwise.

Antony – 7.5/10

A good game. Still needs to add that killer instinct to his game around the box, but he was benefiting United elsewhere.

Rasmus Hojlund – 7/10

Great movement, pressing and was close with a strong low shot early on. Still not getting too much service overall.

Alejandro Garnacho – 8.5/10

Run into the ground. Brilliant on the left and crossed to McTominay for the winner.


Sergio Reguilon – 8/10

The left-back made a great impact off the bench and put in some brilliant tackles and offensive contributions.

Marcus Rashford – N/A

Jonny Evans – N/A
