Express Sport rates Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

Man Utd player ratings vs Istanbul Basaksehir – Champions League

David de Gea – 6

Little to do first half, excellent save low to right to deny Visca shortly after the break. Couldn’t do much for the free-kick.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 5

Couple of lapses in concentration but caused a few issues overlapping going forward.

Victor Lindelof – 6

Solid and accurate route one to set up United’s third, subbed at half time.

Harry Maguire – 6

Strong in the air and couple of decent blocks to thwart Demba Ba in a professional display. Booked.

Alex Telles – 6

Couple of errors early but decent cross for United’s second and generally good going forward.

Fred – 6

Worked hard and mopped up well in the middle but not under a huge amount of pressure.

Donny van de Beek – 7

Put in a shift, granted acres of space and made use of it, initiating plenty of forward movement.

Anthony Martial – 6

Intermittent influence but at least looked happy enough cutting in after shifted wide.


Axel Tuanzebe (on for Lindelof 46) – 5

Struggled to get to grips with Ba after coming on at the break, booked and misses next match.

Mason Greenwood (on for Fernandes 59) – 6

A great ball into James to make it 4-1 in stoppage time.

Daniel James (on for Rashford 59) – 6

Side-footed in from close range late on. A big confident boost.

Brandon Williams (on for Wan Bissaka 59) – 5

Kept busy at the back.

Nemanja Matic (on for Martial 82) – 5

Helped shore things up.
