Manchester United player ratings: Tom Heaton and Facundo Pellistri good vs Derby County

Man United started their pre-season schedule with a 2-1 win against Derby County at Pride Park and here are how the players rated.


Tom Heaton

Made a routine save and then a great save. Does not move like a third-choice goalkeeper. 8

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

The standard steady defensive work and non-existent attacking output. 6

Teden Mengi

Lasted beyond the hour at the club he was at on loan last season. Dithered on an occasion but otherwise fine. 6

Axel Tuanzebe

Stayed on beyond half-time due to the callow centre halves on the bench and had a serene hour. 7

Brandon Williams

Needless foul warranted a talking-to from the referee. 5

James Garner

Not as influential as he can be and one of the nine substituted at half-time. 6

Dylan Levitt

Quiet next to Garner on his first first-team involvement in 18 months. 5

Tahith Chong

Scored scruffily in an otherwise timid performance. 6

Juan Mata

Did got on the ball enough but started growing into the game towards the end of the first-half. 6

Anthony Elanga

Lacked the physicality against second-tier defenders and his half passed him by. 5

Mason Greenwood

Switched from centre forward to the right flank. Anonymous until a late run reminded everyone of his class. 5

Chong made it 1-0
Chong made it 1-0

Subs

Lee Grant

A rare first-team appearance blemished by Colin Kazim-Richards' goal. 5

Ethan Galbraith

Filled in at right-back. 6

Alex Telles

Not particularly intense. 5

Nemanja Matic

Passed prudently. 6

Andreas Pereira

Suffered some mishaps. 4

Jesse Lingard

Started the move that was finished by Facundo Pellistri and hit the bar. 7

Joe Hugill

Provided the focal point aged just 17 for 30 minutes. 5

Facundo Pellistri

Scored clinically to crown his maiden first-team appearance. 8

Shola Shoretire

Had the awareness to play Pellistri in. 7

Will Fish

Tidy on the ball. 6

Dishon Bernard

An invaluable return to the first-team fold. 6

Hannibal Mejbri

Took a dive but then duped a defender. 6
