Well protected by his team-mates for most of the game, at fault for Son's late winner. 5 Delivered some dangerous balls into the box in the second half. 6 Very settled in United's back five after recovering from long-term injury. 7 Led the defence well on an afternoon when United didn't see much of the ball. 7 Made a superb goalline clearance to deny Eriksen and defended well all afternoon. 7 Got up and down all game before his late withdrawal, comfortable now as a wing-back in Benitez's system. 7 Competed well alongside Longstaff after being told he couldn't leave the club on deadline day. 6 Calm and composed again in midfield, kept it simple and rarely gave away possession. 7 Had some bright first-half moments, but wasn't able to deliver a telling ball for Rondon. 6 Had a first-half shot blocked, caused Tottenham some problems in and around the box. 6 Struck the post with a second-half header, but was isolated for long periods. 6
