Manchester United player ratings: Mason Greenwood good but Marcus Rashford poor vs Villarreal

David de Gea

Let down by defenders as United conceded weakly to Gerard Moreno and had little else to do until the shootout. Did not get close to any of the penalties and missed his. 4

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

For all of the ball United had, their right-back disappointed too often with his crossing. Did little wrong defensively. 6

Victor Lindelof

Was fully aware of Moreno and barely put up a fight to thwart him for the goal. Blasted his penalty in, though. 6

Eric Bailly

Committed a clumsy foul early on. Not directly responsible for Moreno’s goal and generally solid. Predictably gave way in extra-time. 6

Luke Shaw

Blindsided by Moreno for the goal and admonished by Solskjaer for not staying high. Not at his usual high performance level. Penalty somehow squirmed in. 6

Scott McTominay

Shanked a shot when he should have hit the target but rallied to win the corner with some gutsy play and drove forward regularly. 7

Paul Pogba

Initially showed promise from deep but United would have been better off with Pogba further forward. Surprisingly made way in extra-time. 5

Mason Greenwood

Easily United’s best performer in the first-half and carried his form into the second-half. Energetic, ran incessantly yet somehow hooked first. 7

Bruno Fernandes

Said it all he clutched the ball hoping for a penalty to salvage his performance. Never really on it all night and just about converted penalty. 5

Marcus Rashford

Ran into defenders like a learner driver ploughing into cones. Contributed to the equaliser with his shot that bounced into Cavani’s path but this was a big game Rashford will want to forget. Somehow stayed on to take penalty and scored. 3

Edinson Cavani

Spurned a good opening at 0-0 but was in the right place at the right time to turn the rebound in and swing momentum United’s way. Stuck his penalty away, too. 7

Subs

Fred

Took penalty and converted nervelessly. 7

Daniel James

Came on to take penalty and scored. 7

Axel Tuanzebe

Took a great penalty. 7

Alex Telles

Brought on to take a penalty and scored. 7

Juan Mata
