A poor match by Manchester United where they lost again against the La Liga giant, FC Barcelona, at the Camp Nou 3-0. Manchester United’s players weren’t in their top form, in addition to the wrong substitutes and formation.
Victor Lindelof played as a right back, after being one of Manchester United’s best players as a center back while Diago Dalot was available to start. Messi scored a brace, where David De Gea was able to easily stop the second goal, but he didn’t in a weird way.
The third goal came from Liverpool’s ex-player, Philipe Coutinho, from outside the penalty area to end Manchester United’s hope of beating FC Barcelona and making a comeback.
Man United players ratings
David De Gea: The second goal he was so poor in saving it. Not his day. 4.5/10
Jones: A poor match, didn’t cover Messi well. 4/10
Smalling: As well, was poor today. Was so clueless in front of Barcelona’s attacking trio. 4/10
Young: Lost the ball in a dangerous area in the first goal. He risked it and made his team pay the price. 4/10
Lindelof: Played as a right back after shining as a central defender. A weird decision by Solskjaer. 5/10
Pogba: Seemed nervous, and wasn’t in his form, again. 5/10
Fred: Clueless, another poor match and inconsistent performance. Was at fault in the second goal after losing the ball to Lionel Messi. 4/10
McTominay: At least he was trying today and didn’t fear Messi. 6/10
Lingard: We barely noticed him. 5/10
Rashford: Made a couple of attempts, but not in his top form as well. 5/10
Martial: We didn’t notice that he’s on the pitch. 4/10
Dalot: He’s not a forward. 5/10
Sanchez: It was already too late. But he made some good impact and was close to scoring from a header. 5/10
Lukaku: We didn’t notice him. But was better than Rashford. 5/10
Ole Gunner Solskjaer ( manager): Weird starting line up, especially in the defense, and late substitutions. He has to focus on the top four right now. 5/10
