Bayern Munich 4-3 Manchester United: Player ratings as Andre Onana and Christian Eriksen disappoint massively

Manchester United lost 4-3 to Bayern Munich at Allianz Arena on their return to the Champions League this evening.

It was a frantic affair with Man United bossing the early part of the game.

However, two quick strikes from Leroy Sane and Serge Gnabry put the visitors on the back foot.

Rasmus Hojlund halved the deficit before former Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane restored a two-goal cushion for the Bavarians.

Casemiro scored a couple of goals at the death, but Mathys Tel’s injury-time strike sandwiched in between helped Bayern take the three points.

Player Ratings:

Andre Onana – 2/10

The 27-year-old allowed a tame shot to roll past him, which shifted the momentum in the host’s favour.

He did not even attempt to save the second strike and should have done better for the last goal.

Diogo Dalot – 4/10

The Portuguese full-back lost a crucial duel to Jamal Musiala, whose assist doubled Bayern’s lead for the first time.

Victor Lindelof – 3/10

The Sweden international had another subdued performance. He was partially at fault for Gnabry’s goal and was found sleeping for Tel’s match-winning strike.

Lisandro Martinez – 4/10

The Argentine still looks off the pace this season. He picked up an unnecessary yellow card for getting into a brawl with Leon Goretzka.

Sergio Reguilon – 6/10

Another impressive start for Reguilon but faded as the game went on. He kept making darting runs on the left flank to support Marcus Rashford.

Casemiro – 6/10

The Brazilian midfielder showed character and desire when his teammates dropped their shoulders. He needs a more athletic and disciplined number eight alongside him.

Christian Eriksen – 2/10

The Dane missed a crucial opportunity to score early in the game. It was a harsh decision to award a handball against him, but he should have been smart enough to tuck his hand inside.

The opponents easily bypassed him as he failed to defend during the transitions. 

Bruno Fernandes – 4/10

The United skipper is yet to find his mojo this season. He started finely but sometimes dropped too deep to collect the ball.

Is it him or Erik ten Hag demanding the midfielder drops deep to spray long balls?

Marcus Rashford – 6/10

The England international got the better of Laimer on a few occasions but could have done more to exploit the left flank.

He set up Hojlund’s goal, which could be a start to a new partnership up front. 

Facundo Pellistri – 5/10

The youngster had an excellent opportunity to put United ahead early in the game but failed to leverage it. His usual attacking guile was missing today.

Rasmus Hojlund – 6/10

He endured a quiet first half but got off the mark for the Red Devils, courtesy of a wicked deflection. He does not look fully fit to play 90 minutes.


Scott McTominay – 3/10

Ten Hag deployed him as a number 10, but the Scotland international barely offered any threat going forward.

Anthony Martial – 6/10

The Frenchman struggled in the previous three games but looked surprisingly bright tonight.

Alejandro Garnacho – 6/10

He won two fouls in his nine-minute cameo. A free-kick from one of those fouls helped Man United to score their third goal.
