Manchester United 2-3 Galatasaray: Player ratings as Hojlund’s heroic in vain after Onana’s shocker

Manchester United were stunned by Galatasaray in the second group match in the Champions League this evening. 

The Red Devils opened the scoring through Rasmus Hojlund, but Wilfried Zaha levelled just six minutes later.

Hojlund gave United the lead for the second time after making a powerful run from his own half. 

Their lead lasted only four minutes as Galatasaray’s Kerem Akturkoglu brought the score to parity.

An error from Andre Onana forced Casemiro to see his second yellow card of the night, making it even more difficult for Man United to find another breakthrough.

Mauro Icardi bagged the winning goal after missing from the spot to make it a historic night for the Turkish club.

Player Ratings:

Andre Onana – 0/10

The United summer signing had a shocker of the game, both with his hands and feet. His poor pass gifted visitors a penalty and forced his side to play with ten men.

He should have stopped Icardi’s strike but went down to the ground too soon, making it easy for the former PSG striker.

David De Gea would have done better.

Diogo Dalot – 3/10

Was bullied and easily outmuscled by Zaha for the first goal, which allowed the visitors to come back into the game. Aaron Wan-Bissaka was missed.

Raphael Varane – 5/10

The Frenchman was caught sleeping for the third goal, where he failed to track Icardi.

Victor Lindelof – 6/10

A decent outing for Lindelof, who surprisingly won all his aerial duels (six).

Sofyan Amrabat – 5/10

The last two games have shown that left-back is not his position. Ten Hag needs Sergio Reguilon back fit as soon as possible.

Casemiro – 5/10

A great switch of play for the opening goal. He failed to track the late run of Akturkoglu for Galatasaray’s second goal.

His sending-off was on Onana and not on him.

Mason Mount – 6/10

It looks like the injury break has been a blessing in disguise for the former Chelsea man. He was heavily involved in the attacks and came close to scoring.

Bruno Fernandes – 3/10

The Portuguese international must thank Onana for not making him the worst player on the pitch tonight.

He was switched to the right flank and proved too wasteful with the ball.

Marcus Rashford – 5/10

Rashford displayed a fine first touch and floated a superb cross to set up Hojlund’s first goal.

He had the opportunity to hand United the lead for the second time but made a mess of a simple pass to Fernandes.

Ten Hag substituting him near the hour mark shows that the Dutchman is losing confidence in the England international.

Hannibal Mejbri – 4/10

A better first touch early in the game could have set up a perfect 1v1 opportunity with Galatasaray’s goalkeeper.

Rasmus Hojlund – 9/10

A perfect exhibition of breakneck pace, strength and composure in front of the goal.

He provided a typical centre-forward’s finish to grab the first goal and showed great poise to chip the ball over the goalkeeper for the second.


Christian Eriksen – 6/10

The Dane came on at half-time and played some great passes from the deeper position.

He lost his influential powers once Casemiro received his marching orders.

Alejandro Garnacho – 6/10

The Argentine came close to scoring, but a marvellous goal-saving block from Bardakci cancelled his efforts.

Anthony Martial – N/A

Too late to rate.
