THE LATE LATE SHOW from Scott McTominay spared Erik ten Hag’s blushes as Man United came out on top against Brentford.
McTominay came off the bench to cancel out Mathias Jensen’s first half goal with two of his own in added time.
And here are the United players rated in a game that could prove pivotal in their season.
ANDRE ONANA -2
How on earth did Inter Milan get to the Champions League final with this bloke in nets? Another error as he let a shot slide through his hand
DIOGO DALOT – 6
Did well to stop Brentford from getting a second when he sensed danger and retreated to the goalline to whack Christian Norgaard’s header clear.
HARRY MAGUIRE – 6
Credit to the former captain for being fit, ready and available after the way he has been treated. Solid enough performance. 6.

McTominay the hero as he comes off bench to score twice
JONNY EVANS – 7
The Northern Irishman showed no rustiness in his first start back at United when he was man of the match at Burnley and looked similarly assured here. It was his first start at Old Trafford since February 2015.
VICTOR LINDELOF – 5
Asked to play at right back as the back four was reshuffled. Gave the final ball away for Brentford’s goal and finally subbed as United went chasing an equaliser.
CASEMIRO – 2
There is one thing for having belief in your own ability, but in Casemiro’s case this season it has led to him being far too sloppy. Gave the ball away twice for Brentford’s goal. Hooked at half-time.
SOFYAN AMRABAT- 4
Shifted out of the left-back position which he clearly cannot play in. Mind you he was hardly a world beater in midfielder on this occasion.
