Manchester United were rescued by teenage sensation Mason Greenwood who came off the bench to score a late equaliser during a 1-1 draw against Everton on Sunday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s conceded to a controversial Victor Lindelof first half own-goal. Appeals for a foul on David de Gea were ignored by VAR.

United pushed forward in the second half and Greenwood’s clinical strike salvaged a point.

Here, we rate United’s players.

STARTING XI (4-2-3-1)

De Gea 5 – Unfortunate not to get the foul for Everton’s goal. Was good otherwise, making a couple of decent saves.

Wan-Bissaka 6 – Seven tackles in this one and some of them were truly exceptional. Crossing woeful again though.

Lindelof 4 – A tough game for the Swede. Unfortunate own goal to concede and made a couple of clumsy fouls. Passing was wayward too.

Maguire 6 – Good on the ball and calm at the back. Needs to pose more of a threat from set-pieces though.

Shaw 5 – His dreadful clearance led to the corner from which Everton scored. Had a good effort in the second half but well below par.

McTominay 7 – He’s the ‘Scott tape’ holding United’s midfield together at the moment. Several defensive contributions but even lead the way for key passes with four.

Fred 6 – The Brazilian had three key passes of his own and showed glimpses of good play but wasn’t anywhere near as strong as his midfield partner.

James 6 – Bagged the assist for the goal and shot wide in the first half. Didn’t capitalise on his match-up with Leighton Baines though.

Lingard 3 – Should’ve done better with an effort 18 seconds into proceedings. Four unsuccessful touches were the most among United players. Completely ineffective with many promising moves dying at his feet.

Rashford 6 – Was the only bright spark for United in the first half. Some stinging shots but a little bit selfish at times.

Martial 4 – Another anonymous game from the Frenchman. Struggled to lead the line. Should be concerned by the Erling Braut Haaland speculation.


Greenwood (65′) 8 – United have lightning in a bottle with this teenage talent. Scored an excellent equaliser after his brace in midweek.

Mata (86′) N/A – Only had a few touches but even those were underwhelming.
