Man Utd ratings: Defensive mayhem from Maguire and De Gea cancels out McTominay header in mad draw

MANCHESTER UNITED fluffed their lines against Everton as a late Dominic Calvert-Lewin goal snagged a surprise 3-3 draw at Old Trafford.

The Toffees barely got going on Sunday night and yet, at 2-0 down and without a shot to their name after 40 minutes, pulled back level by the 52nd minute.

Scott McTominay popped up to head home Luke Shaw’s ball in – only for hesitant defending to allow Calvert-Lewin to slip in for a 94th-minute equaliser.

Here, SunSport's Marc Mayo rates and slates the individual performances from a mad draw.

David de Gea – 4

Didn’t face a shot for over half an hour but pulled out a poor parry to allow Abdoulaye Doucoure to make it 2-1. Glued to the turf as Calvert-Lewin poached a point at the death.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 5

Kept a good enough lid on the dangerous Lucas Digne and was reasonably decent in attack himself. Struggled to hold United’s offside trap for balls over the top.

Victor Lindelof – 4

Gave a glimpse of a silly error when caught in possession for Everton’s first attempt on goal. Nowhere to be seen as the visitors snatched a point.

Harry Maguire – 5

You know it’s worrying when the opposition set up their entire game plan to make use of your foibles. Everton's balls in behind finally caught out Maguire’s lack of pace for the first goal and he was busy waving his arm at the lino as Calvert-Lewin made it 3-3.

Luke Shaw – 5

Embodied his team’s disparate performance with a perfectly strong attacking display – and awful defensive display. Almost scored with a 20-yard scorcher and set up McTominay’s goal, yet was caught flat-footed for the first reply and was far too casual for the second.

Scott McTominay – 7

Probably the only United player who looked assured at both ends. Did well to keep Everton in front of him in the first-half and scored what seemed to be a vital header for 3-2, although the keeper should have done better.


Paul Pogba – 6

On track for a decent performance as the deep-lying set-up guy having sat out the Southampton drubbing – but was forced off injured after 38 minutes.

Mason Greenwood – 6

Showed great energy and put together a number of good attacks down the right wing. Seems to be enjoying his football once again, which is great to see, but faded in the second-half.

Bruno Fernandes – 7

Lacked incision for much of the game but there was no lack of inspiration for his cracking finish from 20 yards for 2-0. 

Marcus Rashford – 7

Relatively quiet until he delivered a great cross for Cavani’s opener. Perhaps struggled to translate his dynamic runs into end product afterwards.

Edinson Cavani – 8

Netted a poacher’s finish to maintain his scoring run versus Everton and even popped up with a number of defensive interventions. With Cavani, United finally have a proper spearhead for the attack.


Fred – 5

On for Pogba, 38 mins. Took over the James Rodriguez marking job and looked pretty clueless for the Colombian's goal.

Axel Tuanzebe – N/A

On for Greenwood, 90+2 mins. Gave away the free-kick that led to the late leveller.
