Manchester United: World Cup matchday 1 player rankings – Which United star sits on top?!

1 of 6

Manchester United’s finest are battling it out on the global stage at this year’s World Cup. But after the first round of fixtures, who is on fire and who can’t take the heat?

Eleven Manchester United players have jetted off to Russia for this year’s World Cup. That is excluding the recent signing of Brazilian Fred as the deal is yet to be finalised.

Many of the players will be coming up against each other in recent weeks when friends suddenly become foes. And with the first round of fixtures complete, we’ve seen a mixed bag of performances from the boys in red.

David De Gea came under the spotlight after his error against Portugal for Spain. Contrastingly, there are cries for Academy-graduate Marcus Rashford to be given the nod ahead of Raheem Sterling in an England shirt. But where do they all rank in the player rankings?

N/A: Marouane Fellaini, Victor Lindelof, Phil Jones

You can’t give these three players a rating as they all sat out of their respective World Cup opener. Marouane Fellaini for Belgium and Phil Jones for England were unused substitutes in their games. Whilst Victor Lindelof had to sit out of Sweden’s opening match due to illness.
