David de Gea: 6
Made a good save in the first half and again in the second to deny Idrissi.
Diogo Dalot: 4
Not very good.
Victor Lindelöf: 5
Like most of the United players, Lindelöf struggled with the artificial pitch. Broke down a couple of AZ’s counter attacks nicely.
Marcos Rojo: 4
Incredibly sloppy in possession.
Brandon Williams: 5
Solid performance in his first start for United.
Nemanja Matic: 2
The midfielder lost about every 50/50 ball there was to be won, even when he had a better starting point. Could not handle the heavier bounces due to the pitch and was once again completely overrun. It’s just way too easy for opponents to breeze past Matic.
Awful performance from Fred on the evening. It seemed like every other pass was misplaced.
Juan Mata: 2
Backwards, sideways, backwards. The Juan Mata way.
Daniel James: 5
Played in a good ball for Greenwood and did well with what he had, which was next to nothing.
Angel Gomes: 3
Didn’t click tonight for Gomes.
Mason Greenwood: 4
You’d think the younger players would find it easier playing on the astroturf but Greenwood did not have an easy time at all. Should’ve scored after connecting with James’ cross.
Pulled his hamstring chasing a lost cause just 10 minutes after coming on.
