Manchester United player ratings: Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw good against Fulham – Samuel Lockhurst

David de Gea

He had little to do in the first half but had a massive save from Ruben Loftus-Cheek, 2-1. Stay focused when you need it. 7

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Ademola Lookman played the other side and was discovered again on another unconvincing night. He had to be told when to venture ahead. Big block late, though. 6

Eric Bailey

Dozily dared let Lookman pass when, had he stayed with him, he might have blocked the target. The game has been improving as it continues. 6

Harry Maguire

He embarked on a strange foray but was discovered when Loftus-Cheek was played 2-1. 6

Luke Shaw

Another good performance and forced United S Tie. United coaches stopped telling him when to move on. 8

Unique

He played a pivotal role in the Edinson Cavani equality movement and completed Paul Pogba in a daring duo. 6

Paul Pogba

Booked early for a sarcastic mistake that didn’t affect his performance. He scored amazingly to put United first. 8

Mason Greenwood

The recall makes perfect sense but Greenwood never did enough again from the right and his hangover continued in Reykjavik. 5

Anthony Martial

Not outside of it but not on it either. He was held surprisingly above Marcus Rashford, and despite his commitment, he was outnumbered by the Fulham defense. 6

Bruno Fernandez

He hit the post and immediately went to make sure United would score from their next attack and they did. I worked tirelessly. 6

Edinson Cavani

He expertly jumped to score his fifth goal for United and the first since the start in the league. He should have scored in the second half to make it easier. 7

Subs

Scott McTominay

Came late. 6

Marcus Rashford

He came to activate the attack. 5

Nemanja Matic

Contribution of quality. 6

Director

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Make logical changes to refresh the team and maintain its confidence in the beginners. Perhaps changes should have been made earlier. 7
