Manchester United fans’ player ratings for first four games of the Premier League season
Manchester United fans have picked out the three new summer signings as the best performers in the first four games of the new season.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Daniel James and Harry Maguire arrived as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer targeted younger, hungry British players to play for United.
However, issues from last season remain at United, with midfield problems telling and a lack of cutting edge up front as Solskjaer’s men have already dropped points against Wolves, Crystal Palace and Southampton.
When MEN Sport asked fans to provide each player a rating out of ten, no midfielder scored above 5.8 on average, with only four players scoring above 6.
Topping the charts were Wan-Bissaka and James with a respectable 8.2/10 each, followed by Maguire on 7.3.
Anthony Martial, scorer of three goals in his new central role was given a 6.7 score by fans. However strike partner Marcus Rashford only got 5.6, possibly due to his penalty miss against Crystal Palace.
Completing the top five was Mason Greenwood, despite the striker playing only 47 minutes across four substitute appearances – his longest contribution coming with a 34 minute cameo in the defeat to Crystal Palace.
Greenwood was given a rating of 5.8 by fans, as was midfielder Scott McTominay. Midfield partner Paul Pogba received a 5.7 rating.
United’s worst performer so far this season is Nemanja Matic with 3.5, according to fans, but the midfielder has only played as a substitute at Southampton last weekend.
Jesse Lingard, who has started three of the four games so far, was closely behind on 3.6. Ashley Young and Andreas Pereira were given 4.4 and 4.5 respectively.
