Manchester United player ratings vs Southampton
David de Gea – 5
Beaten at the near post with both of the goals before injuring his knee. May be out for while, fit or not.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 5
Tried too many tricks in the first half and conceded possession a little too easily.
Victor Lindelof – 5
Lost a 50-50 challenge to Theo Walcott – says it all really. Too flaky for United once again.
Harry Maguire – 6
Tried to galvanise the defence and was the one steady stone in a very wobbly structure.
Alex Telles – 6
Steady enough performance but offered little extra going forward when United really needed it.
Fred – 6
Improved as the game went on but hardly a driving force as United edged their way back into it.
Nemanja Matic – 7
Played an increasing role in giving United platform to attack without so much fear of a counter.
Donny van de Beek – 6
Struggled to get involved after making his first Premier League start. Still has not got going.
Bruno Fernandes – 7
Key part in getting United back in the game with a level-headed finish for opening goal and assist for second.
Marcus Rashford – 7
Struggled in the first half but looked a lot more dangerous when he moved left to make way for Cavani. Set up United’s winner.
Mason Greenwood – 5
Missed two good chances and then taken off at half time when his team needed goals.
Dean Henderson (on for De Gea min 46) – 6
Edinson Cavani (on for Greenwood min 46) – 9
MAN OF THE MATCH – turned the game on its head for United with an assist and two goals.
Brandon Williams (on for Telles min 84) – N/A
