Man United player ratings vs Istanbul Basaksehir: Marcus Rashford and Donny van de Beek good – Manchester Evening News

David de Gea

His selection would have been controversial if United had not won so handsomely. Excellent save to deny Edin Visca but culpable for goal. 6

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Marcus Rashford was the right winger in name only but Wan-Bissaka did not offer additional support. He did not need to, mind. 6

Victor Lindelof

Avoided any dramas during a serene 45 minutes before he made way for Axel Tuanzebe to protect his back problem. 6

Harry Maguire

A stress-free evening for the United captain who is showing something like his best form after a rocky period earlier in the season. 6

Alex Telles

His corner led to the first goal though Telles’ positioning vexed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Michael Carrick. Looked at ease again. 7

Donny van de Beek

A steelier performance from the Dutchman in a deeper role he looked more than comfortable in next to Fred. 7

Fred

The Brazilian’s selection reinforced his importance and United are simply a better side with Fred as one of the midfield two. 7

Marcus Rashford

A threat almost from the off and might only be disappointed not to have scored from open play. Not shackled by starting on the right. 8

Bruno Fernandes

His thunderous half-volley is maybe his best goal for United and Fernandes was selfless in letting Rashford take the penalty. Deservedly rested. 8

Anthony Martial

Moved to accommodate Cavani and had Rafael da Silva on toast. The debate will rage on over whether he is better on the left. 7

Edinson Cavani

His deft touches brought teammates into play quickly and United benefited from having an out-and-out striker up top. 8

Subs

Axel Tuanzebe

Booked and misses the Paris Saint-Germain match next week. 5

Mason Greenwood

Greedy and his decision-making annoyed some teammates but assisted Daniel James. 6

Daniel James

Did not offer much of a threat until he scored in added time. 6

Brandon Williams

First appearance in nearly two months. 5

Nemanja Matic

Came on to shore things up. 5

Manager

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Limited the number of changes with a top-heavy side that took Basaksehir to the cleaners and won the game with a half to spare. 8
