Manchester United 1-1 Fulham: Player Ratings as Red Devils falter at Old Trafford once again | Premier League 2020-21

Manchester United suffered a relatively disappointing end to the domestic Premier League on Tuesday, playing a 1-1 draw against Fulham.

Stunning goal from Edinson Cavani it wasn’t enough for Manchester United in front of their 10,000 supporters, as Joe Bryan’s equalizer in the second half was enough to get the relegation Cottagers taking a point.

Manchester United were convincingly the better side for 90 minutes and could have sealed second place in the evening had there been no dubious finish. However, this was not the case, and depending on the other results in the first four, they could be forced to wait until the last day of the season to secure their status as the best of the rest in the Premier League.

Cavani had to wait almost the entire campaign for his first experience playing in front of Manchester United supporters at the famous stadium, and it took him barely 15 minutes to enter the record in an astonishing way. The Uruguayan star honored the fans with one of the best goals of the season.

Cavani saw Alphonse Areola outside his line and jumped him from about 40 yards to emphatically bring his side into the lead, and his strike was celebrated with the roar of the fans. Ironically, the goal was scored just hours later Bruno Fernandes picked up a Manchester United goal of the season award for his wonderful curling attempt against Everton at home.

Manchester United pressed the second goal for quite some time, but failed to find it despite multiple attempts and majority possession.

Bruno Fernandes approached several times with an excellent free kick attempt and several hunters, which in truth did not bother Areol so much. Mason Greenwood also approached a nice opportunity from the counter, but failed to find enough space to get rid of the attacking Fulham defense and Areola.

In the end, their dominance in the game did not translate into a result Scott ParkerThe Cottagers made a great equalizer in the second half. Bobby Reid found the yard of the space to the left of Manchester United and threw a cross into the distance, and Joe Bryan scored from close range.

The lone point hosts move to 71 points in the season ahead of their last Premier League game for the 2020/21 game at Molineux.

Here’s how the Manchester United players fared during the game.


Manchester United player ratings

Manchester United v Fulham – Premier League

David de Gea – 7.10

The Spanish veteran is back in the XI and has proven his worth with several stunning reflex defenses, including a double save on his tripod. I couldn’t do much on goal. He also played a role in the opening of Manchester United. Top trip.


Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 5.5 / 10

He didn’t offer a full attacking presence on the flanks and failed to stop Joe Bryan in the equalizer race. Not his best night.

Victor Lindelof – 5.5 / 10

He almost gifted the hosts to enter the game before the end of the first half, because he was too weak to stop Fabio Carvalho. On several occasions he remained with his legs wrong and showed no authority in the back as a senior player.

Axel Tuanzebe – 7/10

With the exception of an unfortunate slip in the second half, he was reliable at the back. You read the match well and did enough to give Solskjaer a headache in the selection ahead of the upcoming UEFA Europa League final at Manchester United.

Luke Shaw – 6.10

He had a live half-time, but his influence began to wane as the game progressed. He wasn’t the sharpest in the final third. I should have better blocked Bobby Reid’s race for an equalizer.


Scott McTominay – 6.5 / 10

It was a much better depiction of a Scot who was late in questionable form. He set up a great chance for Bruno Fernandes in the first half and won ten of his 11 bouts, only better than Andre-Frank Zamba Anguisse 11. He picked up the injury and crashed the clock.

Fred – 6.5 / 10

Much like his midfielder, it was a more energetic and improved portrayal of the Brazilian, whose mistakes have cost him his side in the last few games. Worthy on the ball, but failed to create anything important.


Mason Greenwood – 6/10

The teenager has been in great shape for the past few weeks, but failed to deliver on Tuesday. He offered good movement from the ball and helped in defense, but he could not take risks, especially in the second half in the counter.

Bruno Fernandes – 7/10

He was not in his influential best result against Fulham, but he still managed to let Cavani with the slightest touch for an amazing goal. His efforts lacked the usual poison because Areola was comfortable dealing with them. He was still Manchester United’s biggest creative threat and finished more takeovers (four) than his teammates.

Paul Pogba – 6/10

Pogba did not have much influence against Fulham. He made a few smart moves in the first half, he wasn’t that much of a threat. He won just four of his 18 duels, and in the last 30 minutes he was returned to the midfield pivot.


Edinson Cavani – 8/10

Cavani stole the show with a great finish to introduce himself to Old Trafford fans for the first time since joining the club last summer. They put a solid shift on defense, winning more fights (three) than any Manchester United player, and created a great chance for Greenwood in the second half. Great.


Replacements

Marcus Rashford (62 ‘, McTominay) – 5/10

Pulled out unheard of elastic soon after he came in and won a free kick on the edge of the field, but failed to create much else. Silent cameo.

Amad Diallo (82 ‘, Greenwood) – N / A

He had a few nice touches towards the end of the game, but he couldn’t have any impact.

Donny van de Beek (87 ‘, Cavani) – N / A
