Manchester United player ratings vs Man City: Andre Onana does his best amid woeful team display

Manchester United fell to a 3-0 defeat in the derby with Manchester City on Sunday.

City led through Erling Haaland after Rasmus Hojlund hauled down Rodri off the ball from a free-kick, which VAR spotted to hand the visitors a first-half spot kick.

Erik ten Hag made a change at half time to bring Mason Mount into the game yet it mattered little when Haaland was quickly given a free header at the far post to make it 2-0.

Andre Onana kept the Norwegian at bay a couple of times but his efforts were futile.

Phil Foden made it three late on after a deflected shot was parried into Haaland's path.

Andre Onana - 8

Yes, he always has a mistake in him and he did flap at an early Foden header. But he bounced back well, often rushing off his line at vital moments. Made a brilliant stop to deny Haaland late in the first half but couldn't repeat such a heroic feat for the second goal. Saved a one-on-one to prevent the City striker's hat-trick.

Diogo Dalot - 6

Was regularly caught on the overlap with his flank targeted but that was more based on his lack of support. Needed much more help.

Harry Maguire - 5

Largely solid from balls into box but couldn't hold out amidst the bombardment.

Jonny Evans - 5

Made his first derby start since a red card in the 6-1 defeat of 2011. Didn't impress and was caught in two minds for the second goal, choosing the wrong option to leave Haaland free to score.

Victor Lindelof - 5

Played out of position but even so struggled with balls into the box as attackers regularly ran off his shoulder.

Sofyan Amrabat - 5

Gave away niggly fouls in the first half, one of which led to the City penalty incident, but was then booked having won a foul for some perhaps needless terse words to Foden. Hooked at half-time.

Scott McTominay - 5

Good hustle and a regular threat breaking into box down middle. Broke into the box at the start and the end of the first half with good direct runs. But failed to track Bernardo Silva in goal, his defensive work wasn't great.

Christian Eriksen - 4

Simply not good enough at commanding the midfield and keeping hold of possession, which is what United needed of him in the 4-3-3 today.

Bruno Fernandes - 4

Tracked back badly and offered little in attack situated on the right wing. Not his position, of course, but he made the worst of a bad situation.

Rasmus Hojlund - 5

As often happens with quiet-but-threatening strikers like Hojlund, his inactivity can be debated: is it down to the service or the striker? Either way, today he committed a silly foul for the penalty and yet indicated his threat immediately afterwards with a run at goal and supreme piece of skill. Did little else of note, though.

Marcus Rashford - 5

Drifted around the flanks and fired in a great ball for McTominay late in the first half. Broke in behind for a chance to make it 2-1 but dragged a shot wide.


Mason Mount (for Amrabat, 46') - 4

Came on to change the game and did very, very little of that. Sure enough, that's a hell of a task for one player in such a game.

Sergio Reguilon (for Lindelof, 74') - 6

Shored up the left flank as the natural option in defence.

Alejandro Garnacho (for Hojlund, 74') - 5

Couldn't get his pace into the game.

Antony (for Rashford, 85') - N/A

Petulantly booked.

Anthony Martial (for Eriksen, 85') - N/A

Did nothing.
