Manchester United sank to a new low as Burnley left Old Trafford with a comfortable 2-0 Premier League win on Wednesday night.
James Robson runs the rule over Solskjaer’s squad on a bad night for United…
David de Gea: 5
Could he have done better with Rodriguez’ strike? It was a stunning goal, but De Gea seemed to be on his heels.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka: 7
United’s most potent force. On four occasions he picked out red shirts with crosses before Burnley opened the scoring. Every chance was wasted.
Phil Jones: 5
Gave away the free kick that led to Wood’s goal. Important challenge on Rodriguez early in the game, but part of a ragged United defence.
Harry Maguire: 4
Failed to do enough to stop Wood from scoring – and then didn’t get anywhere near close enough to Rodriguez for his second half thunderbolt. Not good enough.
Brandon Williams: 5
One of his less effective nights, with United offering little threat down the left-hand side.
Once again provided the majority of United’s thrust in midfield. Always looking to drive forward, but couldn’t break down Burnley’s block.
Nemanja Matic: 5
Beaten too easily by Mee in the build-up to Wood’s goal. Earlier he provided an incisive pass, which Martial had to convert – but didn’t.
Juan Mata: 6
Found pockets of space that really troubled Burnley in the first half. Really should have done better when connecting with Wan-Bissaka’s early cross.
Andreas Pereira: 4
Totally ineffective. Burnley were happy to give him plenty of possession in the first half, but he failed to make the most of it.
Daniel James: 4
It was always a big ask to expect him to maintain his early season form and it’s no surprise he hasn’t. Another frustrating night for the winger.
Anthony Martial: 3
Two big first half chances and failed to hit the target with either. We’ve seen the good Martial in recent weeks – but this was very much the bad one.
Mason Greenwood (for Pereira, 46′): 5
Not even the boy wonder to rescue a wretched night.
Luke Shaw (for Williams, 69′): 4
Gave United another option on the left.
Jesse Lingard (for James, 69′): 4
Couldn’t make any difference.
Romero, Bailly, Dalot, Gomes
