Manchester United Player Ratings as Diogo Dalot and Anthony Martial Superb vs Crystal Palace

David de Gea

Made a good save at 1-0 on his first full 90 minutes of the pre-season tour but conceded softly to Joel Ward’s header. 6

Diogo Dalot

Another fine performance from one of United’s best players on tour. Excellent assist for Anthony Martial and balanced his attacking and defending well. 8

Harry Maguire

Thrown by the boos early on but regained composure and contributed well at both ends, blocking a goalbound effort and finding the full-back. 8

Victor Lindelof

With the attention firmly on Maguire, Lindelof was allowed to defend with a minimum of fuss and had little bother from Palace. 7

Tyrell Malacia

His most accomplished appearance so far and he was in sync with his new attacking teammates. Committed in defence, too. 7

Scott McTominay

The biggest weakness in the front six and fortunate not to be booked for an unnecessarily crude foul. Came off for Donny van de Beek at half-time. 5

Fred

Dropped deep to receive the ball and used it well to start attacks as United perfected their proactive possession-based game. 7

Jadon Sancho

DOWNLOAD

Switched wings more often than in previous matches in the first-half but still lively on the ball. Side-footed in his second tour goal to make it 3-0. 7

Bruno Fernandes

Adapting really well to Ten Hag’s style. Whereas last season he would impulsively rush it he has been patient and proactive. Sprung the opening for the second goal. 8

Marcus Rashford

The quietest of the forwards until he bent it like Beckham with a cross that demanded to be put away. Scored coolly in the second and integral in move for third goal. 7

Anthony Martial

Had an excellent chance that was repelled by Jack Butland and finished the more difficult chance. Excellent work for the second goal. Another positive performance. 8
