Manchester United have been beaten by three goals to nil in yet another deflating performance and result.

Fans will have been hoping to see the team build on the great performance against Chelsea but it was the exact opposite against Bournemouth.

Player and manager ratings below.

Andre Onana – 4/10

Onana’s performance was less than steady from the start, narrowly avoiding conceding a penalty early on. While not directly responsible for any goals conceded, his impact in preventing them was minimal.

Diogo Dalot – 4/10

Dalot showcased a promising move with Antony, although it ended with his shot hitting the side netting. His defensive efforts were generally unremarkable.

Harry Maguire – 6/10

Maguire stood out as United’s top performer, but this accolade was not particularly noteworthy under the circumstances.

Luke Shaw – 2/10

Shaw struggled in the center-back position. His shorter stature was a disadvantage, as evidenced by Billing out-jumping him for the second goal. Shaw also lost possession during the build-up to that goal, and his passing was subpar.

Sergio Reguilon – 3/10

While Reguilon played with enthusiasm, his decision-making was questionable. A significant portion of Bournemouth’s attacking plays originated from his side.

Sofyan Amrabat – 4/10

Amrabat found it difficult to match the intensity of Bournemouth’s play.

Scott McTominay – 2/10

McTominay’s performance was disappointing, particularly in possession, frequently losing the ball and failing to find good positions for shooting.

Bruno Fernandes – 4/10

Fernandes struggled with his passing, often over-hitting or having his passes intercepted. He is now suspended for the next match against Liverpool after receiving an unnecessary booking for dissent.

Alejandro Garnacho – 4/10

Garnacho had limited space on the left and was effectively contained by Smith. An early injury might have impacted his performance.

Antony – 2/10

Antony was unable to replicate his impressive performance against Chelsea, reverting to a less effective role despite his efforts.

Anthony Martial – 1/10

Martial’s performance was lackluster, continuing a pattern of underwhelming displays as a starter. His play was slow and lacked strength or creativity.

Substitutes:

Rasmus Hojlund (3/10)

Hojlund showed a slight improvement over Martial, but it was marginal. He also received a booking for dissent.

Facundo Pellistri (N/A)

Pellistri entered the game in the 79th minute.

Jonny Evans (N/A)

Evans also came on in the 79th minute and appeared overwhelmed for the fourth goal, though VAR ultimately spared him.

Marcus Rashford (N/A)

Rashford, another late substitution at the 79th minute, encountered familiar challenges, unable to outmaneuver opponents.

Erik ten Hag – 3/10

Ten Hag’s decisions, particularly starting Martial and not substituting him earlier, are under scrutiny following the team’s performance.
