Player ratings: Manchester United 3-0 Ipswich Town

by Sid Choudhary

David De Gea 7 Barely had a save to make but kept his distribution tidy

Antonio Valencia 7 Got up and down the right wing well while not neglecting his defensive duties

Chris Smalling 7 A quiet night for the centre-back, as he was rarely troubled and always seemed in control

Daley Blind 8 Had time on the ball and showcased his passing ability on numerous occasions, most notably for Rooney’s goal

Andreas Pereira 13

Ashley Young 6 Seemed slightly out of sorts playing at left-back but was always an outlet going forward

Bastian Schweinsteiger 8 Another commanding performance, the German barely put a foot wrong and constantly kept the ball moving

Ander Herrera 6 Struggled to get involved from a deeper role but linked up well with Mata and Valencia throughout

Juan Mata 7 Heavily influenced the game the more he came infield and kept United ticking and moving forward

Marouane Fellaini 6 Never imposed himself on the game, both in the air and on the ground, while not being able to partner up well with Rooney

Andreas Pereira 9 The most exciting player on the night, he capped off a brilliant display with a sublime free-kick. The keeper didn’t even move

Wayne Rooney 7 Took his goal very well, showing good strength and control, but ultimately couldn’t plunder more from a weak Ipswich back line

Bastian Schweinsteiger40

Substitutes

Phil Jones 6 A bit reckless in his first game back but an important 20 minutes on his road to recovery

Anthony Martial 8 Another goal for the Frenchman! He’s in dreamland at the moment

Memphis Depay 7 Registered the assist for Martial’s late goal. Encouraging to see the pair link up
