Casemiro once again awful, but this player was a disgrace to the United shirt vs Arsenal

Manchester United lost 0-1 to Arsenal at Old Trafford this afternoon. Here are our player ratings from the game:

 

(A score of 6 is around average)

Andre Onana 5- Distribution, the main thing he was bought for, was lacking again. Actually didn’t have much to do until a save from Martinelli in the 79th minute.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka 3- Left acres of space on Arsenal’s left flank time and again. Really needs to be sold this summer.

Casemiro 2- Appalling for Trossard goal. Of course, he’s not a natural centre back, but does that excuse the complete lack of awareness and effort?

Jonny Evans 5- Didn’t do too much wrong but hardly imperious.

Diogo Dalot 7- United’s best defender. Didn’t set the world on fire but was the only one that looked Premier League standard.

 

Kobbie Mainoo 7- Nothing fancy but was steady. Would like to see him take games more by the scruff of the neck. Can hold his head up.

Sofyan Amrabat 3.5- Made some mistakes and really offered very little to the side. A nice long pass early in second half. Gave the ball away a few times but at least he tried to get it back.

Amad 7- Without doing anything earth shattering, Amad was one of United’s best players. Great ball control and technique and drew a few fouls, even though Paul Tierney decided to ignore them. Arguably should have had an assist for the first-half penalty that wasn’t given. Went off the boil in the second half.

 

Scott McTominay 1- League two standard. Really shocking midfield performance from United’s captain for a day. Johnny-off-the-spot. How was he not subbed? Total passenger.

Alejandro Garnacho 3- Tried some of his runs and dribbles but his decision making really needs to improve. The end product was seriously lacking. Last ball terrible.

Rasmus Hojlund 3- Looks devoid of confidence and ideas. It would be easy to judge him on this sort of performance, but he needs better coaching and a better side around him before we can really judge whether he’s got what it takes.

Substitutes:

Antony 5- Did nothing to change the course of the game.

Willy Kambwala 6- Looked steady.

Christian Eriksen 6- No time to make much impact.

Omari Forson 6- No time to make much impact.

Ethan Wheatley 6- No time to make impact.

Manager Erik ten Hag 3– Tactics contained Arsenal quite well but the lack of any ball-playing midfielders seriously limited United’s attacking threat. Subs could have been made sooner.
