Man Utd player ratings: De Gea bounces back in style, Tuanzebe comes of age and Rashford the matchwinner again
MARCUS RASHFORD will take the plaudits after his rasping finish led Manchester United to a 2-1 away win at Paris Saint-Germain.
But United had heroes all over the pitch in a far cry from the 6-1 home collapse to Tottenham a couple of weeks ago.
Here, Martin Blackburn rates United's players on stunning night in the French capital.
DAVID DE GEA – 8
Repaid the manager’s faith in him by making stunning stops to deny Kurzawa and then Mbappe. Had no chance with the own goal though.
AARON WAN BISSAKA – 8
Showed why they call him the ‘Spider’ by pulling out two outstanding tackles on Mbappe when the French ace looked set to pull the trigger.

AXEL TUANZEBE – 9
First game for 10 months and up against one of Europe’s most feared forward lines – yet showed huge maturity and composure.
VICTOR LINDELOF – 8
His place looked in doubt recently but now he was the senior centre back and the Swede led the back line well, keeping the Paris superstars in check
LUKE SHAW – 7
Will see his left-back slot under threat from Telles but filled in as an emergency centre back for the first hour and did exactly what the manager asked of him.
ALEX TELLES – 7
Big night to make his debut for the £13.6m full-back and showed all his experience to help keep PSG’s front three quiet before making way for Pogba.
FRED – 7
Given the nod ahead of Pogba and helped United take control of the first half against a lethargic home team. Seems to have a good understanding with McTominay.
SCOTT MCTOMINAY – 8
Scotland international showed great maturity in the middle of the park, taking control of the middle and overshadowing his former team-mate Herrera.
BRUNO FERNANDES – 8
Given the armband and seemed to relish the extra responsibility. Showed great character to step up and slot home the re-taken penalty.
MARCUS RASHFORD – 8
Had wasted a couple of chances when he created space on the edge of the box and slammed a shot past Navas. Another memorable moment in Paris for the England youngster.
ANTHONY MARTIAL – 6
Won yet another penalty for his team when he turned Diallo but then inexplicably headed the equaliser into his own net.
Pogba for Telles 67 – 6
James for Martial 88 – 6
Van de Beek for Fernandes 88 – 6
