Man United player ratings: Bruno Fernandes disappoints but Marcus Rashford conjures up late magic in crucial win

MANCHESTER UNITED rose to second after a late, late winner from hometown hero Marcus Rashford.

Nuno's side were quite happy to sit back and contain the Red Devils, particularly with talismanic striker Raul Jimenez still out.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's labouring side were finally able to unlock the orange door late on, via a deflection.

Here's how SunSport's Etienne Fermie rated each United star.

DAVID DE GEA – 7/10

Elected to punch a fierce Ruben Neves drive clear in the 13th minute, subsequently providing a stunning save to deny Romain Saiss following a dangerous Wolves set piece.

Made a decent stop to deny Rayan Ait-Nouri late on. Left winded after an accidental collision with Adama Traore.

AARON WAN-BISSAKA – 5

Fine defensively but offered very little quality going forward, when his side could have really done with some.

ERIC BAILLY – 6

Caught out by Adama Traore early on. Got back well to thwart a Wolves counter attack on the stroke of half-time.

Header brushed Conor Coady's arm, although no penalty was given, and Edinson Cavani's subsequent finish was ruled out for offside.

HARRY MAGUIRE – 6

Got his side on the front foot early on with some nice, crisp passes through the lines. Perfect defending to stop Pedro Neto after a dangerous Wolves counter.

ALEX TELLES – 5

Frequently looked to swing the ball into the box, but rarely found his team-mates.

Substituted for Luke Shaw at half-time.

NEMANJA MATIC – 6

Nearly found Edinson Cavani with a lovely 26th minute cross from deep.

Twice incredulous after felling Wolves stars. Put out some fires but at times could have been more progressive with his passing.

PAUL POGBA – 6

Tried his best to make things happen for United, but like his team-mates, struggled to provide a spark for large periods.

Brilliant, fizzing strike in the 75th minute, denied by Patricio. Influence began to grow late on.

MASON GREENWOOD – 5

Stunning cross that should have yielded a goal in the 34th minute, but Bruno Fernandes missed.

Couldn't quite impose his will on the game.

BRUNO FERNANDES – 5

Will be gutted that he didn't convert Mason Greenwood's sublime cross to give United the lead, with his effort saved by Rui Patricio.

Subsequently frustrated with himself after misplacing a return pass into Rashford.

Very little worked for the Portuguese playmaker – although he did find Rashford in stoppage time.

MARCUS RASHFORD – 7

Nearly set up Greenwood after a twinkle-toes early run. Was a bright spark in a relatively lifeless first-half with his willingness to drive at the Wolves defence.

Headed over the bar in the 64th minute. Booked.

Saw a deflected effort find the net to clinch a crucial late winner in stoppage time.

EDINSON CAVANI – 6

Buzzed around, looked to link play, but was starved of a clear-cut opportunity.

Provided a predatory finish in the 69th minute but was offside.

SUBSTITUTES

Luke Shaw (for Telles, 46) – 6

Great challenge to prevent Traore on the counter. Made a few decent passes.

Anthony Martial (for Greenwood, 64) – 5

Curled a reasonable chance over the bar when teed up by Pogba. Made little impression.

Scott McTominay (for Fernandes, 95) – N/A

Not enough time to make an impact.
