Man Utd player ratings vs Man City: Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho poor
Man United were hammered by Man City in the Premier League at the Etihad Stadium and here are the player ratings from the match.
David de Gea
Made the odd save and could do little about any of the goals as he was badly let down by United’s poor defensive organisation. 3
Booked in the second minute and never really recovered against the tricky Jack Grealish and City punished United from crosses. 2
The dam burst after Varane succumbed to an October injury. Off the pitch when Erling Haaland made it 2-0, the Norwegian eluded him to make it 3-0. Came off injured. 3

City dominated United from crosses but Martinez was not obviously culpable and more a victim of the naive approach of his manager.
Was alarmingly distant from Phil Foden off the ball and never got close to him on it. A chastening derby debut where he did little right. Substituted at the pause.
Blocked heroically to briefly keep the game at 0-0 but was easy pickings for the best midfield in the league. A reminder he is a stop-gap, not a specialist, in defensive midfield.
Failed to track Foden for the opening goal and was inexplicably tasked with handling the monstrous Haaland at the game-killing corner. Poorest performance since Brentford.
A luxury in the first-half but rallied and scored brilliantly to make it 4-1 with more than half-an-hour to play. Then City responded.
Ineffective with and without the ball. City were not remotely startled by any of United’s pressing and Fernandes regressed against the world-class
Kevin de Bruyne
Carelessly lost the ball and United were soon losing. Did little to protect Malacia and did not do much more to test Kyle Walker or Joao Cancelo.
Even against City’s two back-up centre-backs, he provided no presence through the middle and made way for Anthony Martial shortly before the hour.
Subs Victor Lindelof
Was never going to halt Haaland.
Played Foden onside for his hat-trick goal.
Had no impact.
His shot was parried by Ederson and converted by Anthony Martial.
Scored his first goal for United in a year and then converted a penalty.
The line-up was set in stone and that was part of the problem. Ten Hag refused to integrate Casemiro into the team and United were as porous as a sieve.
