Manchester United travelled to the South Coast earlier this afternoon to face-off against the in-form Southampton in a game which dramatically ended 2-3.

Two stunning set pieces from midfielder James Ward-Prowse helped gift the Saints with an early 2-0 lead, but an inspired second-half appearance from new-striker Edinson Cavani ensured the Reds took all three-points.

In light of today’s game, we have rated every United player who featured.

David De Gea

United’s number-one saw his goal come under fire during a first-half which saw Jan Bednarek score from a corner and James Ward-Prowse curl home a perfect free-kick.

Clattered into the post whilst trying to save Ward-Prowse’s free-kick and consequently forced off through injury at half-time for Dean Henderson.

Rating: 2/10

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Not much the right-back could have done to prevent Southampton’s two goals during the first-half but Saints’ winger Moussa Djenpo did cause him problems all afternoon.

Wan-Bissaka did look fairly competent throughout when going forward though.

Rating: 6/10

Victor Lindelof

Looked weak in defence throughout the first-half but did make a handful of key recovery passes throughout the second 45-minutes..

Rating: 6/10

Harry Maguire

Pulled all over the place during the first-half but looked much improved during the second-half.

Judged when to cover and when to step forward to break-up play well.

Rating: 6/10

Alex Telles

Whipped in several good looking balls but wasn’t the most commanding at the back.

United’s new attacking left-back still has some way to go before he can consider his position nailed down.

Subbed off late on for Brandon Williams.

Rating: 5/10

Donny van de Beek

United’s best player throughout the first-half. Kept possession well, found space even better and always looked to go forward.

Faded from the game slightly during the second-half but nevertheless, it’s going to be tough for his manager to demote him back to the bench again.

Rating: 7/10

Bruno Fernandes

Didn’t go the Portuguese Magnifico’s way during the first-half. Struggled with Southampton’s physical midfield and was frequently out muscled in the middle of the park.
