Onana’s United teammate Diogo Dalot also recorded his best performance so far this term at Goodison Park, as he provided the assist for Alejandro Garnacho’s sensational overhead kick after just three minutes. Dalot also made a total of six tackles and interceptions combined, as well as two clearances, a block and three key passes to earn a WhoScored rating of 8.15.
Former United defender Teden Mengi played a pivotal role as Luton picked up their second Premier League victory of the season. The 21-year-old put the home side ahead after 72 minutes, and also contributed defensively with four tackles and interceptions combined, 10 clearances and a block to land a WhoScored rating of 7.82.
