Player Ratings: Manchester United 2019-20 season player ratings so far

Sports Mole gives every Manchester United player who has turned out for the club this season a mark out of 10 for their form up until this point.

Manchester United will not be back in action until April 4 at the absolute earliest with the coronavirus seeing all Premier League action postponed until the start of next month.

The Red Devils beat LASK Linz 5-0 in the first leg of their Europa League last-16 clash on March 12 and had been due to take on Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on March 15.

The clash with Spurs was suspended, though, and as it stands United's next fixture will be away to Brighton & Hove Albion on April 4.

There are huge question marks surrounding the rest of the 2019-20 campaign and it remains to be seen whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side will be given the chance to challenge for a top-four finish.

As it stands, the 20-time English champions are fifth in the Premier League table, while they are due to face Norwich City in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

As mentioned, they are also present in the Europa League round of 16 but lost out to bitter rivals Manchester City in the semi-finals of the EFL Cup.

There is a chance that United have played their last competitive football this season, and with that in mind, Sports Mole looks at how each player has performed for the Red Devils thus far.


David de Gea: The club's number one goalkeeper has made 32 appearances in all competitions this season, conceding 33 times, keeping 10 clean sheets in the process. He has had some excellent games for United, particularly in recent weeks, although it would be fair to say that the Spaniard has not been at his terrific best. (6/10)

Sergio Romero: The Argentine's record this season is terrific, keeping 11 clean sheets in his 14 appearances in all competitions, conceding just three times in the process. There is arguably not a better back-up goalkeeper in English football. (7/10)

Lee Grant: Grant's only first-team action this term came against Astana in the Europa League back in November, where he conceded two goals. The 37-year-old has signed a new contract until the end of next season, though. (N/A)


Harry Maguire: Maguire had some dodgy moments in the early stages of the season but has been key to United's excellent form in recent weeks. The England international was appointed the club's full-time captain after Ashley Young left in January and has chipped in with two goals. (7/10)

Aaron Wan-Bissaka: Like Maguire, Wan-Bissaka has been criticised during stages of the season, but the 22-year-old has been defensively excellent for the last couple of months at least. Raheem Sterling particularly struggled against the right-back in the recent derby. (7/10)

Victor Lindelof: Many remain unconvinced by the Swede but like a number of his teammates, the centre-back has improved as the season has progressed. (6/10)

Eric Bailly: Injuries have restricted the Ivorian to just five appearances in all competitions, but he returned from a knee problem with an outstanding performance against Chelsea last month. That said, the Ivorian is behind Lindelof in the pecking order. (6/10)

Luke Shaw: Much, much better from Shaw this season. The 24-year-old has made 26 appearances in all competitions despite having his injury problems, and he has particularly impressed when operating on the left of a back three. (7/10)

Diogo Dalot: Like a number of his teammates, has struggled with injury this season, being restricted to just 10 appearances. The 20-year-old is certainly a talent, though, and will fancy his chances of challenging Wan-Bissaka over the next 12 months. (6/10)

Brandon Williams: Williams is still just 19 but does not look at out of place at this level. The defender has made 26 appearances in all competitions and has shown his versatility by operating as a left-back and a wing-back during the current season. (7/10)

Marcos Rojo: Currently on loan at Estudiantes, Rojo has made just nine appearances this season. It is unclear what the future holds for the Argentine, who has also struggled with injury. (5/10)

Axel Tuanzebe: Injuries have really harmed the 22-year-old since he returned from a loan spell at Aston Villa. There is no question that he has potential, though, and the centre-back has still managed 10 appearances in all competitions this term. (6/10)

Phil Jones: It has been a tough season for Jones. The 28-year-old has one goal in his eight appearances this term but has featured just twice in the Premier League. (5/10)

Ethan Laird: The 18-year-old, who is highly regarded by United, has made two Europa League appearances this season, operating as a right-back against Astana and AZ. (N/A)

Di'Shon Bernard: The centre-back also turned out against Astana in November and scored an own goal as the Red Devils suffered a 2-1 defeat. (N/A)


Paul Pogba: Could and perhaps should have been Pogba's season, but a persistent ankle problem has seen him restricted to just eight appearances in all competitions. The 27-year-old could yet sign a new deal at Old Trafford, although his agent Mino Raiola has consistently talked up a move away from Old Trafford. Should the season resume, though, he could play a part. (5/10)

Bruno Fernandes: It has not taken long for the Portuguese to make his mark since arriving in January. A record of three goals and four assists in nine appearances shows his contribution, and the midfielder has also brought a real sense of leadership to the club. (8/10)

Scott McTominay: Arguably United's best player alongside Marcus Rashford in the first half of the season before a knee problem stopped his progress. He has returned in recent matches, though, and scored a brilliant goal against Manchester City last weekend. It has been a solid season for the Scot. (7/10)

Fred: Many questioned whether he would ever prove himself as a United player, but the Brazilian has been putting in good performances for some time now. Finally looks a player capable of turning out on a weekly basis in the middle of the park. (7/10)

Andreas Pereira: The 24-year-old has been given plenty of chances, making 37 appearances in all competitions. He has only contributed two goals and four assists, though, and has dropped out of favour since Fernandes arrived at the club. (5/10)

Nemanja Matic: Looked to be on his way out of Old Trafford in the early stages of the season, but the Serbian has been very, very important in recent months. Has not quite shown his best form, although he has improved at the same time as the team. (6/10)

Juan Mata: The Spaniard seems to enjoy playing alongside Fernandes but his overall contribution this term has been limited, managing just three goals and five assists in 31 appearances in all competitions. (6/10)

Angel Gomes: The 19-year-old has still not signed a new contract with United and his future remains up in the air. Has been used on six occasions in all competitions this season but has not really taken the chance to prove himself at this level. (5/10)

James Garner: It is perhaps a surprise that Garner has not been used by United since December having shown promise in the first half of the season. The 19-year-old has six first-team appearances to his name this term, though, and has looked very promising. (6/10)

Ethan Galbraith: The 18-year-old's only first-team appearance came as a late substitute against Astana in the Europa League. He has been a regular for the Under-23s, though, and will be hoping for more chances if he does not leave on loan next season. (N/A)

Dylan Levitt: Also featured in the Europa League match against Astana, playing the full 90 minutes in the middle of the park. The 19-year-old has captained the Under-23s this term, meanwhile, and certainly has promise. (N/A)

Jesse Lingard: It has been a really, really tough season for Lingard. A record of just two goals and two assists in 35 appearances is very disappointing, and it would not be a surprise to see him leave Old Trafford during this summer's transfer window. (4/10)

Tahith Chong: Chong recently signed a new long-term deal with United but has yet to really ignite his career at first-team level. He has contributed two assists in 11 appearances, though at the age of 20, he certainly has time on his side. (5/10)


Marcus Rashford: Out since January due to a back problem, United have really missed Rashford. The Englishman scored 19 times in 31 appearances before picking up his injury and was easily playing the best football of his career. (8/10)

Anthony Martial: Martial has faced a lot of criticism this season, but it is difficult to argue with a record of 16 goals in 34 appearances in all competitions. In his first campaign as an out-and-out number nine, the Frenchman has proved his class on a number of occasions. (7/10)

Mason Greenwood: A record of 12 goals in 36 appearances for an 18-year-old is exceptional. The Englishman has shown his class on a number of occasions and has all of the skills required to be a huge player for the football club moving forward. (7/10)

Daniel James: The 22-year-old has four goals and seven assists in his 37 appearances for United this season. The Wales international has found it difficult during spells of the campaign but has been trusted to play as a forward in some of the team's bigger games this term. (6/10)

Odion Ighalo: Can only be judged on his form since January and therefore a 7/10 rating is extremely fair. The Nigeria international has four goals in his eight appearances and scored a brilliant effort against LASK last time out. Could well join the club on a permanent deal this summer. (7/10)

Largie Ramazani: Also made his only first-team appearance of the season against Astana. The 19-year-old has nine goals in 13 Premier League 2 games this term, though, and could be one for the future. (N/A)

D'Mani Bughail-Mellor: The 19-year-old also featured in the Europa League contest away to Astana, playing the final 25 minutes. Like Ramazani, has shown good form for the 23s this term with four goals and six assists in 14 appearances. (N/A)
