Sergio Romero 7 – Made a crucial save from Victor Anichebe soon after Manchester United took the lead. Provided impetus from the back with some smart throws out wide.
Matteo Darmian 7 – Had Anichebe in his pocket all game. Studiously went about his business on the right-hand side of the defence.
Eric Bailly 6 – Could have easily given a penalty away in the first half but looked increasingly comfortable as the game went on.
Marcos Rojo 7 – Another powerful, composed display from the Argentine: marshalled the back four all afternoon.
Ander Herrera 7 – Once again placed himself at the heart of proceedings in midfield, emphatically dominating the likes of Lee Cattermole as the visitors controlled the game from start to finish.
Marouane Fellaini 6 – Responded to receiving the captaincy with a highly physical, dedicated performance, but could have been far tidier on the ball.
Paul Pogba 6 – Struggled to impose himself during the early stages but managed to stretch the game following Man United’s second goal, quickly turning defence into attack with a series of marauding runs.
Jesse Lingard 6 – Responded to his new contract by invoking plenty of energy, bursting forward whenever he got the chance, only to fall short in the final third.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan 7 – Spent the first 20 minutes trying to find his accuracy before eventually pulling the home side apart with a mesmerising array of passes all across the pitch. Put the game to bed with a wonderful finish at the far post after 46 minutes.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic 7 – Powered United into the lead with a typically thunderous strike on the edge of the box after 30 minutes. Improved his link-up play as the game went on and set up Rashford in the closing minutes of the game.
Marcus Rashford 7 – Worked incredibly hard after he was introduced and managed to find the back of the net after linking up well with Ibrahimovic, absolutely deserved it.
