Manchester United and Arsenal produced a flat encounter, as both sides had to settle for a draw at The Emirates.

This isn't a game that will live long in the memory, and it was punctuated by poor performers on both sides.

✔️ GOOD PERFORMANCE

Aaron Wan-Bissaka: 7.7

The right-back was one of United's better performers on what was a mediocre game.

Wan-Bissaka offered his usual high energy and boundless desire to push forward and help his attacking teammates.

Defensively, Wan-Bissaka was also impressive, recovering the ball 10 times throughout the 90 minutes, and making three interceptions for his side.

BAD PERFORMANCE

Scott McTominay: 6.2

The Scottish midfielder only lasted 37 minutes on the pitch before he was unfortunately taken off after sustaining a knock.

However prior to his injury, McTominay struggled in alongside Fred in the double pivot.

It was telling that Paul Pogba, who had been playing higher up the pitch in the opening half of the game, then took McTominay's place and made United a more cohesive unit.

McTominay only attempted 28 passes in the 37 minutes he was on the field, with a completion rate of 89%.

Edinson Cavani: 5.7

The experienced striker was beginning to win over his critics following his free transfer in the dying moments of the last transfer window.

However his performance against Arsenal will only sharpen the knives of those same critics, who maintain the Uruguayan hitman is past his sell-by date.

Cavani missed several gilt-edge chances, despite getting into good positions. They were the sort of chances the Cavani of Napoli or PSG would've gobbled up. However he spurned them, and cost United what would've been a vital three points and keeping them in the title race.

Cavani in general had a poor game. He only touched the ball 27 games, despite staying on for the entire game, and looked remarkably off the pace. Furthermore, he only passed the ball 20 times, with a completion ratio of 80%.

Not his finest game.
