West Ham United 0-2 Manchester United: Player ratings

by Leo Nieboer

David de Gea 7 – Dealt with everything that came his way. Made a vital save from Michail Antonio minutes before United’s opener.

Antonio Valencia 6 – Powerful going forward and reliable at the back, displaying superb levels of stamina throughout. Should have buried his chance in the first half.

Phil Jones 5 – Never really settled after his clash with Sofiane Feghouli. Cheaply gave the ball away too often and failed to provide much assurance whenever West Ham poured forward.

Marcos Rojo 6 – Another reliable, solid performance from the Argentine. Looked shaky early on but settled as Jose Mourinho‘s men took hold of proceedings.

Matteo Darmian 6 – Provided energy and control on the left hand side but had to come off at half time after picking up an unnecessary booking.

Michael Carrick 7 – Took complete control of the game after West Ham went down to ten men, providing his usual control and balance in abundance.

Ander Herrera 6 – Looked out of sorts in the first half but managed to impose himself more as the game went on.

Paul Pogba 7 – Another effervescent, commanding display from the Frenchman, who continues to assert himself as an indispensable member of this side week by week.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan 6 – Couldn’t provide his usual panache against a dedicated West Ham back four but still managed a series of smart touches.

Jesse Lingard 5 – Looked busy out on the right hand side but his influence was next to non-existent.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic 6 – Looked lethargic and distant all afternoon but still managed to put the game to bed with a thunderous strike


Juan Mata 7 – Asserted himself well, producing several nice touches and netting United’s opener.

Marcus Rashford 8 – Simply brilliant: completely changed the game after being introduced in the second half, injecting speed and panache whilst providing a superb assist for Mata’s goal.
