Player evaluations: Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes shines with the game-winning goal, Jonny Evans is impressive, and Rasmus Hojlund was deprived of opportunities

With their hard-earned draw at Burnley, Manchester United got their season back on track. 

Just before halftime, the visitors took the lead thanks to a magnificent first-time volley from Bruno Fernandes.

From there, Erik ten Hag’s squad held on for a vital win that moves them up into the Premier League’s upper echelons.

It was a gallant effort from Vincent Kompany’s squad, but Burnley are still winless and narrow victories don’t matter in the standings.

Toffees (a 4-2-3-1)

No. 7 James Trafford

A master of distribution and handling for England’s U-21 team, Fernandes’s spectacular volley was too much for the star.Grade 7 Connor Roberts

Helped to keep Rashford quiet and get forward well, and his cross set up an early header by Amdouni.

Al Dakhil 7 Ameen.

Confident and assured performance from the center back, who was also able to make an important interception to thwart Hojland.

No. 6 Jordan Beyer

Overall solid defensively, but conceded a goal to Fernandes because of the quality of Evans’ pass.

Seventh Charlie Taylor

His teammates will be encouraged by his precise passing and his role in the team’s strong showing.

No. 6 Josh Cullen

Very orderly in possession, willing to get their hands Ԁirty, and persistently probing United.

In the 6th grade, Josh Brownhill

The Burnley captain performed admirably in the middle of the field, where he often excels.

It’s Joey Gudmundsson, number five

After 20 minutes, his bright start was cut short when he went down with an ιnjury and was replaced by Mike Tresor.

Ramsey, Aaron 7

Assisted Amdouni with a deft pass, and his intelligent running was a constant dаnger.

This is Luca Koleosho, number 7.

The winger’s lightning speed and deftness caused concern for Dalot and Reguilon.

Seventh Zeki Amdouni

Early on, he came near but was unsuccessful on two separate occasions. Onana saved his header, and his subsequent attempt struck the post.

Mike Tresor comes in for Gudmundsson. 20 mins – 6

The winger was just as deceptive as Koleosho.

Replace Amdouni with Jay Rodriguez 73 mins – 5.

73′ 5″ Jacob Larsen, Koloeosho.

Ramsey’s choice: Sander Berge 73 min – 5.

Brownhill 86’s Manuel Benson.

Muric (GK), Cork, Zaroury, and Delcroix were available as subs but were not used.

A.O.7 Andre Onana

Looked confident and made up for his mistake in Munich by saving Amdouni’s early header.

D. Dalot, VI

After being booked for tripping the evasive Koleosho early on, he kept his cool and successfully navigated the disciplinary minefield.

Lindelof, Victor, 7,

Becoming United’s go-to defensive anchor with yet another rock-steady performance.

No. 8 Jonny Evans

The veteran defender had an impressive outing: he played well defensively, set up Fernandes’ score, and had a ‘goal’ disallowed.

Sexteto Sergio Reguilon

Struggled to contain Koleosho when the winger moved sides, but was eager to forward and connect with Rashford whenever possible.

No.7 Casemiro

The Brazilian seems happier with McTominay as an engine room partner and reverted to his form from the previous campaign.

S. McTominay, Rank 7

Recalled to support Casemiro, and he enjoyed getting back into the rough stuff to disrupt Burnley’s play.

A. Bruno Fernandes, p.

At the deаth of the first half, he gave United the lead with a technically excellent volley and was the driving force behind their best оffensive play.

Ibn Mejbri 6 Hannibal

The teenager didn’t disappoint for United in only his second appearance in the Premier League.

Rashford, Marcus 6

Despite his efforts and the dаnger he posed cutting in from the left, Burnley was unable to get a shot off.

Hojland, Rasmus 6

The forward worked hard pressuring the Burnley defense, but he, like Rashford, was unable to create many scoring opportunities.

Raphael Varane comes on for Reguilon at the 80-minute mark (5-0).

At minute 88, Sofyan Amrabat replaced Evans.
