Player Ratings

Man Utd 1-1 Villarreal (10-11 pens) Player Ratings: Rashford and Fernandes struggle

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer failed to pick up his first silverware as Manchester United boss after a marathon penalty shootout.

David de Gea missed the crucial spot-kick as Manchester United lost out to Villarreal on penalties after a 1-1 draw in the Europa League final.

The Red Devils fell behind to Gerard Moreno's 30th goal of a remarkable season in the first half but levelled things up through Edinson Cavani in the second period.

However, they were unable to capitalise on their subsequent dominance of possession before missing out in a lengthy penalty shootout that finished 11-10.

See how the players rated in Gdansk below.

Much has been made this week of comparisons between Bruno Fernandes and Eric Cantona in terms of the galvanising effect both players had on the Manchester United teams they joined.

But, playing in his first major final for the club, the Portuguese struggled to make his mark, managing two off-target shots and zero key passes and the Red Devils struggled going forward.

In fairness to Fernandes, it was too easy for Villarreal to shut down United by simply staying tight to him, which suggests he could do with more creators around him so that stopping him becomes more difficult.

It has recently come to light that Marcus Rashford has spent most of this season playing through various injuries.

And, unfortunately for the Englishman, this outing in Gdansk looked a game too far in terms of playing through the pain as he struggled to have any impact whatsoever.

Such was the anonymous nature of his performance after what has been a tricky campaign on the pitch, you wonder whether Rashford's starting place at the Euros for England is now under threat.

  • One man who definitely did not deserve to end up on the losing side.

    Scott McTominay was a dominant presence in the middle of the park, making four tackles, regaining possession 15 times, and winning an incredible 67% of his 21 duels.

    If his United teammates could have matched that level of performance, they would have ended the night picking up the trophy.
