Man United's players ranked from worst to best based on their stats this season


Manchester United's season has been turbulent.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side struggled in the first-half of the season and at one point were no where near the top four.

However, the signing of Bruno Fernandes from Sporting in January has worked wonders.

His arrival gave United a boost and they had some brilliant results following his arrival.

Unfortunately, the Red Devils' good form came to a halt when the coronavirus pandemic paused the season.

But who has impressed for United so far this campaign? And who has struggled?

With the season currently in hiatus, we've looked at stats provided by WhoScored to rank every Man United player from worst to best.

Only performances in the Premier League have been taken into account.

Players who have played less than five full games (450 minutes) have been omitted as it would be unfair to include players with such a small sample size.

That means players such as Eric Bailly, Phil Jones and Odion Ighalo do not feature.

19. Jesse Lingard - 6.27

18. Juan Mata - 6.37

17. Mason Greenwood - 6.47

16. David de Gea - 6.49


15. Andreas Pereira - 6.59

14. Victor Lindelof - 6.67

13. Brandon Williams - 6.72

12. Daniel James - 6.73

11. Luke Shaw - 6.75

10. Ashley Young* - 6.76 (Young signed for Inter Milan in January)

9. Fred - 6.95


8. Nemanja Matic - 7.06

7. Paul Pogba - 7.09

6. Scott McTominay - 7.10

5. Harry Maguire - 7.12

4. Anthony Martial - 7.17

3. Aaron Wan-Bissaka - 7.21

2. Marcus Rashford - 7.34

1. Bruno Fernandes - 7.82


Lingard has struggled this season, having failed to record a single goal contribution in his 20 Premier League appearances.

De Gea has also been disappointing, with just three United players worse than him.

Fred has been having a decent season but fans may be surprised to see Matic having a higher average rating than him.

United's two big summer signings - Maguire and Wan-Bissaka - have both been highly impressive.

Rashford has had a breakout season, having scored 14 times from the wing. 

He suffered a long-term injury at the start of this year but, fortunately for United, he may be available if the Premier League restarts next month.

But way out ahead is Fernandes. The Portuguese has been incredible since joining in January.

He's yet to taste defeat in his nine games for United and has recorded five goal contributions in five Premier League games.

Time will tell whether he can pick up that form if the Premier League starts again in June.
