If you were to give Manchester United a school report-style grade for their season so far, it would probably be somewhere between C to D.
It hasn’t been great, but there have been some good moments – especially in recent months.
The coronavirus pandemic suspended the season at the worst possible time for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side. They were just beginning to play some good football while picking up results in the process.
United’s upturn in form coincided with the arrival of Bruno Fernandes, who immediately gave everybody at Old Trafford a huge lift.
The Portuguese midfielder has only played nine games for the Red Devils so far – but has he already done enough to be considered a Player of the Year contender?
The guys at FullTimeDEVILS have ranked all of United’s players this season into five different categories: ‘POTY Contender’, ‘Played Well’, ‘Ordinary’, ‘Under Par’ and ’Sh*t!’.
You can watch the video here…
And here’s how they’ve ranked the players…
Phil Jones is only Man Utd player who has been “sh*t” this season, apparently. Not too sure about that.
David de Gea
Jesse Lingard and Andreas Pereira can both consider themselves very lucky to have made the ‘Under Par’ category, rather than the ’Sh*t’ one.
David de Gea hasn’t been at his world-class best this season, but putting him in the same category as Lingard and Pereira feels a bit harsh to us.
Victor Lindelof can also feel a little hard done by.
Hard to disagree with too many of the selections here.
Luke Shaw has looked impressive in games this season. Perhaps he should be in the ‘Played Well’ category. The rest look pretty spot on.
Again, it’s difficult to argue with most of these selections.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka possibly could have made the ‘POTY Contender’ category, while Daniel James has been rather inconsistent since his rip-roaring start to life at Old Trafford. The Welshman could easily have found himself in the ‘Ordinary’ category.
Four excellent shouts, for our money.
Fred has been superb in recent months, Fernandes has made an extraordinary impact as we already mentioned, Scott McTominay keeps getting better and better, while Marcus Rashford was enjoying the best season of his career so far until he suffered that unfortunate back injury in January.
