Scott McTominay and Cristiano Ronaldo shine at Old Trafford as Harry Maguire returns

MANCHESTER UNITED extended their unbeaten run under Ralf Rangnick to five games with a comfortable victory over Premier League contenders Burnley.

Scott McTominay and Cristiano Ronaldo own an own goal to make their mark 3-1 win over Burnley at Old Trafford – went 5 games without losing against their German caretaker boss.

And the victory over Clarets helped MU surpass Tottenham to 6th place in the Premier League table.

But who shined and who struggled? Here’s how SunSport’s Chisanga Malata rates the Manchester United stars:

David de Gea – 6/10

Was not tested for large parts of the game but was at one point at six minutes and was cut off with corners and a deep cross inside the box.

Could and probably should have done better with Aaron Lennon’s strike to reduce the deficit after United’s third win.

Aaron Wan Bissaka – 5/10

The first couple of times of the first half were fouled for losing position, which allowed Burnley to get some attacking play on his side.

Defensively better later in the first half and even better in the second.

Harry Maguire – 4/10

The Reds captain did little to soften his detractors with some less-than-stellar defence.

His aerial saves are far from convincing and he has been repeatedly bullied by Chris Wood.

Essentially, Lennon allowed Lennon the opportunity to reduce his debt by pulling out and not putting pressure on the winger.

Eric Bailly – 6/10

The Ivory Coast international was a lot tougher than teammate Maguire and made some important interceptions in the first half.

Rangnick will regret losing his service as he departs, once again, for the Cup of African Nations.

Luke Shaw – 7/10

The England international is solid when called upon to defend but is a constant threat going forward.

He would have provided an assist in the fifth minute had it not been for Ronaldo’s passing.

Almost doubled United’s lead in the 18th minute after a quick rush forward.

Jadon Sancho – 6.5 / 10

A winger’s brilliant header helped Man United double the lead in the 26th minute as he edged past the Burnley defense and shot into the far corner.

Other than that, the former Borussia Dortmund ace had little impact on the game.

Nemanja Matic – 6/10

He himself is usually tenacious in the middle of the park but offers little to move forward, unlike his counterpart in the middle of the park.

Scott McTominay – 8/10

Is a dominant force and presses the field in the middle of the park, up and down the field to perform its duties at both ends.

Put the Reds ahead in the eighth minute with a beautiful footwork from outside the box.

Mason Greenwood – 7/10

The game was lively from the start and kept Clarets full-back Matthew Lowton struggling on the left flank.

Sometimes his decision making is not the best but solid performance from the youngster.

Cristiano Ronaldo – 8/10

Wasted a great opportunity for the home side to take the lead after five minutes by slamming the ball over the bar.

But he made amends three minutes later by poking a slot for McTominay in the opening goal of the game – albeit with a clumsy touch.

Grab United’s third with a lukewarm touch ten minutes before halftime.

Edinson Cavani – 5/10

The former Paris Saint-Germain man was anonymous for large parts of the game, so observers would be forgiven for thinking he was not on the field.

Lived up in the second half but let himself down with some poor touches.
