Manchester United player ratings vs Wolves as Marcus Rashford and Raphael Varane good.

December 31, 2022

Man United beat Wolves in their final game of 2022 and here are how the players rated at Molineux..

David de Gea

Made a fine save from a Ruben Neves free-kick at 0-0. Big save in added time. 8

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

The right-back’s upward curve continued with a solid defensive display. Not as present in attack as fellow full-back Tyrell Malacia. 7

Raphael Varane

Dominated the aerial duels on the ground where he made his United debut in another commanding performance from a world-class defender. 8

Luke Shaw

Passed an early examination by Diego Costa and the Spaniard only lasted a half. Asserted himself imposingly at centre half again. 8

Tyrell Malacia

Offered decent support in attack and crossed for Antony to head straight at Jose Sa in the first-half. Kept up with Adama Traore. 7


A more testing examination than against Forest, his influence was limited by Wolves’ intensity and he was reduced to some cynical fouls. 6

Christian Eriksen

Did not come close to picking the lock on an afternoon so toiling he was replaced by Fred on the hour. 5


Guilty of failing to protect Aaron Wan-Bissaka against Hugo Bueno and blunt when Anthony Martial’s miscued header rolled to him. 5

Bruno Fernandes

On the periphery and struggled to have an influence. Hit an awful free-kick and an awful shot (or was it a cross?) in the second-half but claimed an assist. 5

Alejandro Garnacho

For the second week running, he showed the ‘keeper mercy in a one-on-one at 0-0. It cost Garnacho as he was replaced at half-time. 4

Anthony Martial

Showed why United need a new No.9. Often caught on his heels, Martial glanced a presentable header away from goal. 4


Marcus Rashford

Dropped due to an “internal disciplinary”, United were more intense with Rashford on and he took his goal terrifically. Harshly had a second chalked off. 8


Brought some verve to the midfield but got booked. 6

Donny van de Beek

Was about to come on at 0-0 and still came on. Inconsistent. 5

Harry Maguire

Came on in added time. N/A

Anthony Elanga

Came on in added time. N/A
