Manchester United dropped more points in the Premier League after being held to a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford to bottom-placed side Southampton.

Here are the full player ratings against Southampton as Erik Ten Hag’s United side failed to build from their Thursday night win in the UEFA Europa League against Real Betis in Manchester.

David De Gea – 7

Did excellent to deny Theo Walcott from giving Southampton the lead having burst through one-on-one on the break. Kept a cool head and was thankfully not beaten by James Ward-Prowse from a free-kick

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 7

Did well to deny Southampton an earlier opener in the second half and overall impressed place for Diogo Dalot. Was caught out on a few occasions but used his pace well to track back and deny the Saints from causing any damage.

Raphael Varane – 7

Did well alongside Martinez and kept Southampton largely at bay. A much-needed clean sheet for Varane and the Manchester United defence after last weekend’s 7-0 loss.

Lisandro Martinez – 7

A defensive unit against Southampton and was key to keeping the Saints at bay, with Martinez’s recovery runs keeping Manchester United in the game on more than one occasion.

Luke Shaw – 6

Was at times Manchester United’s furthest attacking player and did manage to cause his former club some problems. However, Shaw was unable to cause any real damage to Southampton’s backline.

Casemiro – 2

Sent off early in the first-half for a horrific challenge on Charly Alcaraz. Will now face a four-game suspension in what could be a major dent in Manchester United’s hopes of a top-four finish.

Bruno Fernandes – 5

Having shined on Thursday, Fernandes will be disappointed with his performance today despite having arguably the best chance of the match for Manchester United having seen a great shot crash off the post.

Antony – 5

Struggled to break Southampton down and was visibly frustrated with how they targeted him as the match went on. Another game to forget for the Brazilian international.

Jadon Sancho – 5

Back in the starting XI having missed out on the last few matches, yet Ten Hag will be disappointed with what he saw from Sancho. The England international, like Antony, struggled to create much, and was duly substituted in the second half.

Marcus Rashford – 6

A frustrating attacking performance for Rashford, who struggled to get going at any stage against the Saints and was unable to really test Gavin Bazunu despite Manchester United’s possession.

Wout Weghorst – 5

Taken off before halftime in what was another quiet performance for Weghorst. Managed one shot on target and could have potentially won Manchester United a penalty had VAR worked as intended.


Scott McTominay – 5

Replaced Weghorst before the break and did little to replace the impact and influence Casemiro offers in the midfield.

Alejandro Garnacho – 5

Managed just 17 minutes before coming off due to injury.

Facundo Pellistri – 5

Light up Old Trafford on Thursday night with his cameo off the bench but the Uruguay international was unable to do much this time around against Southampton.

Harry Maguire – 6

Came on in the final few minutes and was able to keep a vital clean sheet for Manchester United.

Fred – 5

Kept a clean sheet yet was unable to win the game for Manchester United in the final moments.
