Sanchez & Pereira outstanding: United US tour ratings
As Man United's pre-season might have left more questions than bright spots, Samuel Luckhurst & Manchester Evening News take a look at every Red Devil's display
David de Gea 6
"Linked up for the Real Madrid game and was steady despite the Champions League winners regularly threatening".
Lee Grant 7
"Impressed in games and on the training pitch. Joel Pereira appreciated his professionalism and experience".
Joel Pereira 6
"Made some decent stops but was over-confident with his squandered penalty against AC Milan".
Antonio Valencia 3
"Played less than an hour and had ‘too much holiday’, in Mourinho’s words".
Matteo Darmian 5
"Enjoyed plenty of playing time as the only established right-back. Looked uninterested up until a creditable display against Madrid".
Timothy Fosu-Mensah 7
"One of the few positives in the Liverpool defeat. Vinicius Junior embarrassed him but he recovered and Fosu-Mensah’s defending was often secure".
Axel Tuanzebe 5
"Looked awkward in a back three and is in need of a season-long loan".
Chris Smalling 5
"Missed the last two games through injury and was shaky in the AC Milan draw. Might miss out on starting the season".
Luke Shaw 6
"Effectively had a free run at the left-back role but suffered a few wobbles. Solid, if unspectacular".
Andreas Pereira 8
"Played the most minutes on what could be remembered as a breakthrough tour. Scored a stunning free-kick against Liverpool".
Ander Herrera 6
"Took time to get going but was particularly proactive against Real Madrid and scored the winner".
"Was eager in his brief bow against Liverpool and enjoyed an accomplished first start in the win over Real Madrid".
Scott McTominay 5
"Might have dropped down the midfield pecking order in the wake of Pereira’s progress. Barely impressed despite plenty of game-time".
James Garner 6
"Didn’t disgrace himself in a risk-aversive start against San Jose. Got to come on and see out the game with Madrid".
Juan Mata 7
"Had to double as a striker in the wake of Anthony Martial’s departure and developed an encouraging telepathy with Alexis Sanchez".
Anthony Martial 3
"Was woeful in his two appearances before he left for the birth of his son. His partner and baby's health was his priority but Martial’s attitude was poor before the tour".
Tahith Chong 6
"Excelled in the opening draw with Club America but was overawed in his only start against San Jose. Restricted to cameos in the remaining games".
Alexis Sanchez 8
"Looked like a man with a point to prove. United's best player on the tour, scoring goals and creating others. Will be vital to any success that United have this season".
