Manchester United player ratings of the season as Casemiro and Marcus Rashford great

David de Gea

There were matchwinning performances against West Ham (twice), Leicester and Fulham and no ‘keeper kept more Premier League clean sheets. Yet there were catastrophic errors against Brentford, Sevilla and West Ham, while he was culpable for Ilkay Gundogan’s FA Cup final winner. Shot-stopping is the sole strength of a ‘keeper who has metaphorically and literally stood still. 6

Diogo Dalot

One of the in-form right-backs in Europe going into the World Cup, Dalot’s injury in Portugal’s quarter-final defeat to Morocco had severe ramifications for the remainder of his club season. Dalot barely performed from January onwards and his regression was so acute Aaron Wan-Bissaka started ahead of him in the FA Cup final. 6

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

After four minutes in the first four months of the season, Wan-Bissaka regained confidence and, eventually, his place from Dalot. He has developed an unlikely alliance with Antony and while he is still a limited attacker lacking the skill set United need from a right-back, Wan-Bissaka’s recovery has been laudable. 7

Raphael Varane

United’s renaissance was underpinned by Varane’s recall against Liverpool in August. He is still one of their most important players and United won only two of the seven games Varane missed with an ankle injury in April and May. 8

Lisandro Martinez

At the heart of United’s defensive reinvention, Martinez was almost as much of an asset in attack in defence with his distribution. Overcame a galling start to quickly become a cult figure and United missed him against Sevilla and City. One of the signings of the season. 8

Victor Lindelof

An unfulfilling season ended on a fulfilling note for Lindelof, who started the last 12 games – his longest run as a United starter. It was also his finest run of form but one moment of hesitation against Erling Haaland led to City scoring quickly in the FA Cup final. Performed alongside Varane, Martinez and Luke Shaw. 7

Harry Maguire

Maguire had a good first season, a decent second, a disastrous third and this, his fourth, was the worst. Lost his place two games into the season and never regained it. Involved in disastrous defeats at Brentford and Sevilla and his shortcomings were exposed in some matches he started that United still won. 3

Luke Shaw

Rightly dropped after that lackadaisical half at Brentford, Shaw took his chance when Tyrell Malacia buckled in the October derby and the England international was one of United’s most consistent performers. He is also now one of the best centre-backs in the league. 8

Tyrell Malacia

Enjoyed a superb start when he came in for his full debut against Liverpool but he was ruthlessly exposed by Phil Foden at the Etihad. Often gettable when he started, he excelled in the vital win against Aston Villa in April but he is the weakest of Erik ten Hag’s signings. 6


United would not have returned to the Champions League without Casemiro. He has brought balance to the midfield, his mentality elevates teammates and he scored a number of vital goals. United’s player of the season. 9

Christian Eriksen

An astute signing who has been key to United’s more sophisticated midfield. Eriksen has been a near-constant creative cog and he offset the fruitless pursuit of Frenkie de Jong – for one season, at least. His tendency to tire early often compromised United’s flow. 8

Scott McTominay

Served a purpose during a brief period at the start of the season until he too was shown up at the Etihad. The Scot has been rumbled by Ten Hag and now has the role he should always have occupied: squad player. 5


For every City and Barcelona there was a…. City and Barcelona. Fred produced wildly contrasting performances against both teams and that is the Brazilian in a microcosm. He failed to step up in the FA Cup final. 6

Marcel Sabitzer

The worthiest of the four loanees who came in, Sabitzer flicked in elegantly for the winner against Fulham in the FA Cup quarter-final and adapted well to his more advanced role. Had a good impact in the League Cup final when he came on and pressed Newcastle. 6

Bruno Fernandes

Assumed greater responsibility as captain and led impeccably, bar the aberration at Anfield. Creative as the 10, off the wing and from deep, he scored and created vital goals in what was his best season for United. 8


Not a great goalscorer but a scorer of great goals. Antony had some fine moments in his first season and was starting to refine his play until he got injured against Chelsea. A work in progress. 6

Alejandro Garnacho

Already a fans’ favourite, Garnacho is a United winger in the classic sense. His fearlessness is welcomed in an attack that has accommodated some flaky characters in recent times and Garnacho’s goals were either winners or clinchers. There is more to come if he continues in this vein. 8

Jadon Sancho

Even when he was scoring at the start of the season, he was fading in games. There were some fine cameos after his return from a three-month absence but he went missing again in the FA Cup final. United is too big a club for Sancho. 3

Anthony Martial

United’s crock monsieur sustained six separate injuries and missed over half of their 62 games. Managed a meagre nine goals and his best performance of the season was his first appearance as a second-half substitute against Liverpool. 3

Marcus Rashford

Scored six times as many goals as the previous season to become United’s first 30-goal-a-season scorer since Robin van Persie in 2012-13. Tallied countless winners and added more variety to his finishes. The goals did dry up after the League Cup final, though. 9

Anthony Elanga

No goals all season and started four out of 57 games after his Brazilian namesake arrived. Garnacho has leapfrogged him in the pecking order on the left. 2

Wout Weghorst

Two goals in 31 games and both were on the rebound with the goalkeeper prone. Weghorst was a trier and had chances but he was a largely incompetent United striker and the club fell into the trap of signing someone on the back of World Cup form. 2

Marks are assigned individually and players must have started at least five games.
