Man United 2-1 Villarreal – Champions League Player Ratings

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is in deep trouble after Man United’s latest Champions League against Villarreal at Old Trafford. Even though he’s improved over the last few years, he hasn’t been up to standard with the club’s recent upgrade. Arrivals of players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane, or Jadon Sancho only evidence his lack of quality as a manager. Today, he again ordered his players to offer a defensive performance. Perhaps it was last season’s Europa League final defeat that keeps haunting him.

But this Villarreal side was superior to Manchester United despite the Red Devils’ star-studded lineup. Cristiano Ronaldo is lost as a lone striker if no balls come to find him. Villarreal played a fantastic first half with David De Gea’s multiple saves that prevented United from going to the break with a disastrous result. Ole needed to make some important modifications but he wasn’t able to comply. The second half started with another disaster at Old Trafford.

Player ratings
Manchester United: De Gea (9), Telles (8), Varane (7), Lindelof (6), Dalot (4), McTominay (6), Pogba (7), Bruno (7), Sancho (5), Greenwood (5), Ronaldo (9).
