Manchester United v Everton player ratings: Edinson Cavani and Axel Tuanzebe star – Dominic Booth

Dean Henderson

After his mishap at Sheffield United, he was called back aside and was a spectator until he brilliantly saved from Gylfi Sigurdsson’s free kick. Didn’t have to do much else. 6th

Axel Tuanzebe

Was robbed of the first team’s minutes and had to make do with a right-back start, but looked more comfortable than many would have expected. 7th

Eric Bailly

Bred the ball out impressively from behind on its return to the side. There was the inevitable fear of injury, but this was the better side of Bailly. 8th

Harry Maguire

Some early nervousness against the Everton press, but generally normal, albeit against a subdued Everton front. 6th

Alex Telles

Looked sharply forward to the left, especially in the first half, and delivered some dangerous supplies from the corners. Later put back by Iwobi. 6th

Nemanja Matic

Gave United a solid base ahead of the back four and a number of midfield passes. Its kind of game. 7th

Paul Pogba

Some arithmetic passes and strong pieces of midfield again showed that the Pogba summit is not too far away. He looks motivated despite the ongoing conversation about his future. 8th

Pick your man of the game against Everton

Donny van de Beek

Stationed in an unfamiliar broad left role, but showed some noble touch and a watchful defensive game. Much quieter after the break and replaced. 6th

Bruno Fernandes

A surprise starter given his recent workload, but he seems to love playing at Goodison Park. Bring intensity and skill, but this time the last ball was missing. 7

Mason Greenwood

Grazed the woodwork with a fleeting header and had other goals in mind. A livewire when cutting off the right flank, but no chance. 7th

Edinson Cavani

Could have scored two or three goals in the first 15 minutes and would have been mad. It took him 87 minutes to finally find the network. Could have been sent off following an incident with Yerry Mina but continued to loot a brilliant finish. 7th


Marcus Rashford (for Van de Beek, 67)

Didn’t look as sharp as in the past few weeks. 6th

Anthony Martial (for Greenwood 67)

Came on to play on the left wing. Place Cavani for the winner, then do it 2-0. 8

Luke Shaw (for Telles, 84)

Late encore. N / A

Manager: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Deserves credit for the determination of United’s game from the first whistle after naming a strong side despite the nine changes. Made predictable but wise changes. 7th
