An afternoon a very low scores as the Red Devils were beaten at Vicarage Road
Manchester United suffered a new low in an up and down season as they were beaten 2-0 at bottom side Watford.
David de Gea 2
His hologram hands gifted Watford an unlikely lead and sparked United ’s pitiful collapse. His annus horribilis continued.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka 4
A par-for-the-course performance from Wan-Bissaka in the first-half until he finally cracked with a sliding tackle that gifted Watford a penalty.
Harry Maguire 4
In matches where United are devoid of a reliable creative midfielder against fodder, Maguire needs to step up – literally – to enhance attacks. He didn’t.
Victor Lindelof 4
Occasionally looked uncomfortable against the physical Troy Deeney and the speed of Watford on the counter-attack.
Luke Shaw 3
Had to be told to push further up again and was booked again. Still a long way short of what a modern full-back looks like.
Scott McTominay 3
Solskjaer urged him to calm down his passing and for the second week running McTominay’s limitations against fodder were exposed. Substituted.
All effort and no effect. Against another side that denied him pace Fred failed to pick the lock and United called for Paul Pogba earlier than planned.
Daniel James 3
Provided an early cross for Anthony Martial but was nigh-on anonymous after that. Substituted before the hour mark.
Jesse Lingard 2
Missed a pivotal one-on-one at 0-0 when he casually opted for the dink. It epitomised the complacency of this United side. Substituted for Pogba.
Marcus Rashford 4
Never got the measure of the 33-year-old Adrian Mariappa. Another day where the regular played like a rookie.
Anthony Martial 4
Fashioned openings in the drudgery that was the first-half but was too often isolated and faded into anonymity after the opener.
Mason Greenwood 5
Paul Pogba 6
United’s best player.
Juan Mata 4
