Manchester United player ratings after 3-2 win over Newcastle

Manchester United hold on for three points in our final home game of the season.

Kobbie Mainoo’s opener was the difference at the break before a second half that had no shortage of goals.

Newcastle winger Anthony Gordon caused problems for Aaron Wan-Bissaka and equalised within minutes of the half-time restart.

We had lead again through Amad Diallo’s stunning strike, just before the hour, and Rasmus Hojlund scored minutes after coming on.

Lewis Hall curled home from distance to make for a nervy ending.

United hung on to win 3-2.

Without further ado, here are our player ratings:

Andre Onana

Made two saves but his distribution was questionable at times, especially for Gordon’s goal. 6

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Struggled against Gordon. 5

Casemiro

Much better tonight than in his two previous outings. Made a goal line clearance at 1-0. 7

Jonny Evans

Cool as a breeze against Alexander Isak. 7

Diogo Dalot

Decent performance. Didn’t put a foot wrong, but didn’t pull up any trees either. 6

Sofyan Amrabat

That’s two decent displays back-to-back from the Moroccan. Protected the defence and kept us ticking in the middle. Could make a surprise argument to start the FA Cup final against Man City. 8

Kobbie Mainoo

Opened the scoring and linked up superbly with Fernandes in the middle. Great maturity on the ball. 7

Bruno Fernandes

Made a huge difference to the team as expected. He brought the creativity that we lacked against Crystal Palace and Arsenal. 8

Scott McTominay

Combative without doing a lot. 5

Amad

A threat on the right flank, which is not something we’ve had very often this season. He assisted Mainoo before scoring a beauty. 8

Alejandro Garnacho

Didn’t threaten Trippier enough. 5

Subs

Lisandro Martinez

First appearance in three months. It didn’t take him long to win some aerial duels. 6

Marcus Rashford

Got some much needed minutes under his belt. 5

Rasmus Hojlund

Scored minutes after coming on with a well-taken finish. 7

Christian Eriksen

Didn’t have enough time to have an impact on the game. 5
