Sergio Romero 6 – Could have possibly positioned himself better for Blackburn’s opening goal but redeemed himself with a number of smart grabs from set-pieces.
Matteo Darmian 6 – Generally solid at left bak, holding the ball well and maintaining his position all afternoon. Once again lacked any attacking impetus going forward.
Chris Smalling 6 – Completely lost Danny Graham in the lead-up to Blackburn’s opener and looked uncomfortable against Marvin Emnes during the first half. Enjoyed a much stronger second half.
Marcos Rojo 6 – Endured a couple of shaky moments early on, clearly flustered by playing against two strikers, but managed to adjust as the minutes ticked by.
Ashley Young 7 – Without doubt Manchester United’s most composed influence at the back. Brought a valuable mixture of discipline and verve going forward.
Ander Herrera 6 – Provided plenty of energy and dedication but struggled to assert himself going forward.
Jesse Lingard 5 – Another performance hallmarked by a strong work ethic but ultimately very little in the form of end product.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan 6 – Provided a sumptuous, defence-splitting assist for Rashford’s opener and displayed his usual verve at No.10, only to then fade away as the game went on.
Anthony Martial 6 – Came up with some smart touches in the first half but couldn’t replicate the heroics seen against Saint Etienne.
Marcus Rashford 7 – Did brilliantly to guide home his seventh goal of the season and led the line with bucketloads of energy. Continued to cause problems when shifted to the left hand side.
Paul Pogba 7 – Completely altered the tempo of the game after coming on and produced a sublime assist for Ibrahimovic.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic 7 – Came on and wasted no time with getting his name on the scoresheet. 24 and counting for the seemingly unstoppable Swede this season.
