Manchester United fell to a 3-2 defeat to Galatasaray at Old Trafford in the Champions League fixture on Tuesday night.

Rasmus Hojlund scored twice but United struggled defensively and former United player Wilfried Zaha netted on his return. United’s night went from bad to worse when Casemiro was sent off and conceded a penalty. Mauro Icardi missed the penalty but scored minutes later to atone for his blunder.

The Manchester Evening News’ chief United writer Samuel Luckhurst was in the press box at Old Trafford to cover the game and here are his player ratings from the match.

Andre Onana

Beaten by Wilfried Zaha’s deflected equaliser and very unconvincing with his hands again when he almost gifted Galatasaray an equaliser. He gifted Galatasaray a penalty and made it easy for Mauro Icardi. 3

Diogo Dalot

Got bullied by Zaha in his Palace days and this was worse as he allowed the ball to bounce twice before deflecting it past Onana. 5

Raphael Varane

Not at his most commanding and the centre halves went missing for Davinson Sanchez’s hoik that Zaha smuggled in. His distribution was poor. 5

Victor Lindelof

Made a key interception and block either side of the interval. An improvement on his general form this season. 5

Sofyan Amrabat

United suffered in the absence of a specialist left-back again. As determined as Amrabat was, he did not look a natural and it showed for Galatasaray’s second goal. 4

Mason Mount

Worked tirelessly and had two goalscoring opportunities in the first half. Forced a straightforward save from Fernando Muslera in the second. 6


Sprayed a fine pass for Marcus Rashford that led to the opening goal but off the pace too often again and his inability to track cost United another goal. Sent off trying to clean up Onana’s mess. 4

Bruno Fernandes

His night started with a casual flick towards goal and did not get much better. Wasteful with the ball and sought to blame others far too often. 3
