Man Utd player ratings vs Newcastle United: Amrabat and Mainoo shine

Manchester United beat Newcastle United 3-2 in the final Old Trafford game of the season this evening.

The visitors started the first half strongly but the Red Devils worked their way into the game.

Kobbie Mainoo opened the deadlock at the half-hour mark after he got on the end of a pass from Amad Diallo.

The Magpies levelled the score just after the break, courtesy of a link-up between Jacob Murphy and Anthony Gordon.

Diallo restored United’s lead as he fired home on the half-volley after Newcastle failed to defend from a corner properly.

Rasmus Hojlund scored within a couple of minutes of his arrival from the bench to give the home side some breathing space.

Lewis Hall bagged a spectacular goal in injury time, but that proved to be a mere consolation for the visitors.

Let’s get into the player ratings.


Player Ratings

Andre Onana – 6/10

Onana made an excellent save to deny Sean Longstaff which could have had huge implications on the final scoreline.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 5/10

The right-back gifted Alexander Isak a fantastic opportunity to lead moments after their equaliser.

Casemiro – 7/10

The former Real Madrid man started the game by misplacing a couple of passes and missing a sliding tackle. He made amends by clearing the ball off the line and making a crunching tackle against Gordon.

Jonny Evans – 6/10

The veteran showed his commitment and passion for the Red Devils, possibly for the final time in front of the Old Trafford crowd.

Diogo Dalot – 6/10

The Portuguese full-back was caught off guard during Newcaslte’s first strike. It was not a sound defensive performance, but he continued to show how good he is with the ball at his feet.

Sofyan Amrabat – 7/10

The midfielder bailed out his teammates multiple times, including a marvellous block against Isak. He was the best player on the pitch in the first half.

Scott McTominay – 6/10

McTominay featured as number 10 but looked lost in that role, specifically with Bruno Fernandes ahead of him.

Kobbie Mainoo – 7/10

Mainoo had acres of space compared to other players to place the ball behind the goalkeeper. It was a solid all-around performance.

Amad Diallo – 8/10

A splendid Man of the Match display from the young star. Diallo dribbled easily in tight spaces, set up Mainoo’s strike and scored a sublime goal.

Alejandro Garnacho – 6/10

Garnacho needs a bit of rest after starting for the 36th consecutive time.

Bruno Fernandes – 7/10

Fernandes showed why he is the team’s catalyst. He pulled the strings and must remain at Old Trafford next season.

Substitutes 

Marcus Rashford – N/A

Rashford made his 400th appearance for Man United and came very close to scoring.

Rasmus Hojlund – N/A

Hojlund’s late goal proved to be the match-winner.

Lisandro Martinez – N/A

Too late to rate.

Christian Eriksen – N/A

Too late to rate.
