Manchester United 2-0 Everton: Player ratings as Garnacho inspires the Red Devils to a victory in a dull contest

Manchester United registered a comfortable 2-0 home victory over Everton in the Premier League today.

The visitors started brightly and pressed the Red Devils high up the pitch.

The hosts took the lead against the run of the play, courtesy of Bruno Fernandes’ spot kick after James Tarkowski fouled Alejandro Garnacho inside the box.

Garnacho won another penalty after 20 minutes, which Marcus Rashford fired past Jordan Pickford with aplomb. 

Man United failed to dominate the game, but Everton created nothing. The victory solidified United’s position in sixth spot with 47 points.

Let’s get into some player ratings.

Player Ratings

Andre Onana – 7/10

The goalkeeper made a brave save in the second minute and did well whenever called upon.

Diogo Dalot – 6/10

Another decent display from Dalot. He kept things simple and almost embarrassed Everton’s shot-stopper.

Raphael Varane – 7/10

The Frenchman held the backline together by winning all of his duels (3) and making three clearances.

Jonny Evans – 7/10

The veteran started by surrendering possession but made some fine blocks to keep Everton at bay. When he was substituted, the home crowd gave him a massive round of applause.

Victor Lindelof – 6/10

A better defensive performance from the Swedish captain when compared to last weekend. 

Casemiro – 4/10

The Brazilian midfielder gave away the ball twice in the first four minutes. He didn’t improve and kept on making sliding tackles without any success.

Kobbie Mainoo – 6/10

A quiet display by his standards.

Scott McTominay – 6/10

McTominay played a fine through ball for Garnacho, but the youngster failed to capitalise.

Bruno Fernandes – 8/10

A great display as a false nine by the United skipper. He dropped deep to collect the ball and created space for wingers to run. 

Alejandro Garnacho – 8/10

His fine trickery and bursting runs caused problems for Everton and earned United two spot kicks. 

He could have bagged a goal but failed to take his opportunities.

Marcus Rashford – 6/10  

He struck his penalty with good strength and fine accuracy. The Old Trafford crowd appreciated when he tracked back with full pace. 

However, he didn’t really trouble Everton’s defence, and the expectations will be higher against Liverpool.

Substitutes

Sofyan Amrabat – 6/10

He brought energy to the United midfield.

Antony – N/A

Too late to rate.

Willy Kambwala – N/A

Too late to rate.
