Man Utd player ratings: Aaron Wan-Bissaka has horror show but Jesse Lingard impresses on return

MANCHESTER UNITED suffered a humiliating 4-2 defeat by Championship side Queens Park Rangers on Saturday afternoon.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was without several first-team players, although few would have predicted this scoreline.


QPR ran riot in West London as goals from ex-Premier League striker Charlie Austin, trialist Moses Odubajo and a brace from Scotland centre-forward Lyndon Dykes secured an emphatic victory.

The Red Devils' goals came courtesy of a third-minute opener from Jesse Lingard and a late consolation from youngster Anthony Elanga.

Here's how SunSport's Dan King rated the United flops on a dreadful afternoon at Loftus Road.

Tom Heaton – 6

Couple of nervy moments with the ball at his feet but commanded his box well.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 4

All QPR’s success came down his side. Slow to react in untidy build-up to hosts' second goal.

Axel Tuanzebe – 5

Solid enough one on one and bringing the ball out, but could have helped Wan Bisska more.

Teden Mengi – 5

Completely lost Austin for the QPR equaliser but otherwise didn't do a lot wrong.

Brandon Williams – 5

After being United’s most convincing defender by far in the first half, he had a 'mare in the second.

Andreas Pereira – 6

Competent, but no more. Again made you think he could be a decent for someone, just not United.

Nemanja Matic – 5

For every good thing he did, there was a misplaced pass or error. Turns 33 next week and looks it.

Facundo Pellistri – 6

Neat assist for Lingard’s goal but did not make much of an attacking impact otherwise.

Jesse Lingard – 7

Lively from the off and took his goal well. Remained busy but could not make another decisive contribution.

Daniel James – 5

Struggled to get into the game and did not make the most of the opportunities he did have in the final third.

Mason Greenwood – 7

Started brilliantly, with a key role in opening goal, but faded. Through ball should have led to Elanga goal.

SUBS

Lee Grant – 5

Little he could do about any of the three goals that rattled past him soon after he came on.

James Garner – 6

Found his feet after the whirlwind 15 minutes and did a better job than Matic had.

Juan Mata – 5

Second-half skipper found himself surrounded by youngsters and could not stem the tide.

Anthony Elanga – 7

Dangerous runs gave him great chances that he couldn’t take, but a fine finish to make it 4-2.

Ethan Galbraith – 6

Shored things up down the United right, which was what they desperately needed.

Dylan Levitt – 6

Alongside Garner, helped United to stabilise the game and avoid further embarrassment.

Hannibal Mejbri – 6

His shock of hair was visible all over the pitch as he put in an energetic half hour’s work.

Shola Shoretire – 5

Made little impression up top on his own and also struggled to impose himself in midfield.

Will Fish – 5

Almost let in QPR for a fifth but it was a tough assignment. Otherwise solid enough.

Di'Shon Bernard – 6

Had less to do as Rangers lost their momentum a little, but did it competently enough.

Joseph Hugill – 5

Had a chance to score for 4-3 and make things interesting. Ran around gamely.
