Manchester United player ratings as Lindelof and McTominay poor vs Brighton – Samuel Luckhurst

Well beaten by Danny Welbeck for the first goal and Pascal Gross for the second. Could arguably have done better for the third goal. 5

Diogo Dalot

Vindicated his switch to right-back and shadowed Kaoru Mitoma diligently. Crossed for Marcus Rashford to have a chance. 6

Victor Lindelof

His sloppiest half for a while, Lindelof seemed thrown by Brighton&aposs fluid movement. Can&apost be assured of keeping his place. 4

Lisandro Martinez

Still nowhere near his level of last season and that may only return when Raphael Varane returns. Fell for Pascal Gross&aposs dummy. 5

Sergio Reguilon

Started superbly but Brighton exploited his eagerness to go 1-0 up and Reguilon&aposs rustiness was apparent in the second half. 5

Scott McTominay

Occupied an undefined role as United effectively played without a right winger. His limitations were obvious and he offered little. 3


Sprayed the odd fine pass but he was also too slow to react at times and he failed to track Welbeck. 5

Bruno Fernandes

Tried to cover every blade of grass and that was his problem. Tried too hard and ended the first half with a booking. 4

Christian Eriksen

Started well but faded and once Brighton went ahead, Eriksen struggled to have any influence on the game. 5

Marcus Rashford

Had close to 10 shots and his tendency to overdo it literally denied Rasmus Hojlund a full debut goal. His body language was too negative at times. 5

Rasmus Hojlund

Thought he had scored but Rashford had taken the ball over the line. Put himself about and could have connected with Rashford&aposs cross at 0-0. 6


Anthony Martial

Had to be told to get ready quicker. 4

Hannibal Mejbri

Fine first goal for United. 7

Alejandro Garnacho

Got too much wrong in the little time he had. 4

Facundo Pellistri

Unfortunate not to start. 5

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Late arrival. 5
