Manchester United were defeated 3-2 at Arsenal after conceding another late goal amid a spirited performance.

Here is a look at our player ratings from the fixture at The Emirates…

David de Gea – 5

Had a nightmare early on playing the ball out from the back and this led to Arsenal’s equaliser. Made a big late save, yet was too soft for Arsenal’s winner.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 6

Unable to have any impact at all going forward. Largely dealt well with Gabriel Martinelli and made important defensive contributions. Partly at fault for Arsenal’s first.

Lisandro Martinez – 8.5

Scored a fantastic header to equalise in the second half. Sharp defensively as always.

Raphael Varane – 6

This was not a game Varane was able to take control over, and this may have been one game too many for him after a busy week.

Luke Shaw – 6.5

Had a tough task against Bukayo Saka. Keen to get forward and attack.

Scott McTominay – 6

Worked hard defensively, but United clearly missed Casemiro shielding the defence.

Christian Eriksen – 6

Didn’t see enough of the ball to have the kind of game he is capable of.

Bruno Fernandes – 6.5

Always a threat in possession, United just did not get him on the ball enough. Tireless defensive work.

Antony – 6

Gave United shape and got into good positions, but once again his final ball was lacking.

Marcus Rashford – 8

A terrific individual effort for his goal, caused Arsenal problems every time he got on the ball.

Wout Weghorst – 6.5

A useful outlet and created space for United’s opener. It still feels like United are a long way from getting the best out of him.


Fred – 5

Brought on to help slow down Arsenal’s attacks, he had no impact in doing so.
