MANCHESTER United ended their US tour with another defeat, losing 3-2 to Borussia Dortmund.
And it’s their own fault, because individual mistakes led to every Dortmund goal in Las Vegas.
This sparked some heated arguments between the Red Devils players.
Donyell Malen had no complaints, however, and took advantage of the chaos in Man Utd’s game to score two quick goals late in the first half before Youssoufa Moukoko struck the decisive goal.
The Red Devils have a lot to think about with the upcoming new Premier League season, as the defeat was the third in a row in this pre-season.
But who stood out and who fought for Man Utd? Damian Burchardt rates everyone Allegiant Stadium single player…
He stayed focused despite not having much to do at the start and fended off some confident saves. Heaton didn’t have much to say as Donyell Malen struck twice in the space of two minutes and put Dortmund ahead in the first half.
DIOGO DALOT – 7
Looked dangerous from the start and it was Dalot who opened the scoring with a shot on target from outside the box. He was also probably United’s most reliable defender on Sunday.
Maguire clearly struggled to clear the ball throughout the game, giving Dortmund a few scoring chances. He could also have done more to stop Karim Adeyemi’s pass before Donyell Malen equalised.
VICTOR LINDELOF – 3
Lindelof looked calm and showed some good passing skills early on. But he was directly to blame for Dortmund’s second goal, foolishly dropping the ball close to the penalty area and looking unsteady going forward.
Really good start from the 22-year-old, who protected the left wing well while United kept going back three in attack. But his all-in move helped Adeyemi get past the full-back and then set Malen up for his first goal.
Calm but solid.
DONNY VAN DE BEEK – 7
The Dutchman was particularly active on Sunday and caused problems for Dortmund with high pressing. His passing and vision led to some promising chances – including Dalot’s goal which van de Beek set up.
Got off to a strong start and was instrumental in United’s attacking play. But then Forson lost his composure and got into a brief scuffle with Adeyemi, which earned him a yellow card and resulted in ten Hag taking the 19-year-old off with seven minutes remaining in the first half.
Did a good job for the Red Devils and contributed to their possession dominance early on.
FACUNDO PELLISTRI – 6
Good performance from the Uruguayan, who often posed a threat on the field – although that didn’t translate into much.
Sancho did his best to impress while being the focal point of United’s attack against Dortmund. He showed flair and creativity and met van de Beek in the last third.
ANTONY – 7
Messy at first but then he showed attention and determination that allowed Antony to capitalize on Dortmund’s error and equalize.
ANDRE ONANA – 7
Came out focused in the second half, repelling some strong saves. When Youssoufa Moukoko settled the score, there wasn’t much he could do.
LUKE SHAW – 5
A little wobbly at the back after changing in.
AARON WAN-BISSAKA – 5
Wan-Bissaka’s poor pass started Dortmund’s counter-attack, giving them a 3-2 lead.
More could have been done to prevent Dortmund from taking the lead again.
When Dortmund made it 3-2, it seemed lost and slow.
CASEMIRO – 6
Solid after checking in on both sides.
BRUNO FERNANDES – 6
As always, great playmaking from the Portuguese.
Mason Bracket – 5
Worryingly for Hag, it was another quiet cameo from Mount this preseason.
Substituted, Rashford posed a real threat on the left wing.
Not played enough to get a rating.
