Player Ratings: Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 Manchester United

Player Ratings: Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 Manchester United

David de Gea 6 Could do little about any of the goals

Timothy Fosu-Mensah 8 Made some powerful attacking runs down the right hand side of the pitch and two vital blocks in the first half. No coincidence that United fell apart when he went off

Chris Smalling 5 Couldn’t handle Spurs as they attacked at will during latter stages

Daley Blind 5 Needed to be closer to Lamela for his goal

Marcos Rojo 3 Not a good game for him. Spurs consistently got the better of the Argentine and he didn’t challenge Alderweireld for the second goal

Morgan Schneiderlin 7 Got stuck in against Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele

Michael Carrick 6 Too easily overrun in midfield

Juan Mata 5 Didn’t make enough of an impact. Goes missing all too often

Jesse Lingard 6 Worked hard but didn’t create enough chances

Anthony Martial 7 Bright and lively as ever but he should have scored at 0-0

Marcus Rashford 6 Tried his best but struggled up against an organised Spurs defence

Substitutes

Ashley Young 5 Bizarre move to play him up top. Full of running but no cutting edge

Matteo Darmian 4 Awful. In complete disarray compared to the superb Fosu-Mensah

Memphis Depay 5 Little point in putting him on. Got into a tussle with Walker late on
