Antonio Valencia 6.5 – Kept Mark Albrighton at bay on the right hand side and surged forward with purpose but needs to improve his crossing.
Eric Bailly 7.5 – An absolute rock. Tackled with power and hardly gave Jamie Vardy an inch of space all afternoon. Solid in the air.
Nemanja Matic 7.5 – Another elegant, commanding performance at the base of midfield. Ensured that Wilfried Ndidi and Matty James had little influence.
Paul Pogba 7 – Placed himself at the heart of proceedings and duly ran the game with purpose. Occasionally caught cold on the ball and needs to improve his shooting from range.
Juan Mata 7 – Produced a subtle, positive performance on the right hand side, always looking to move play forward. Dropped in influence in the second half.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan 7 – Produced yet another assist from the corner spot, and it was exactly what he deserved. The Armenian was, once again, majestic on the ball.
Anthony Martial 7.5 – Confidence is running through his veins. Made life hell for Danny Simpson all afternoon and forced a penalty. Supporters will be glad to see that his mojo is well and truly back.
Romelu Lukaku 6.5 – Held up the ball brilliantly and battled hard against the formidable defensive pair of Harry Maguire and Wes Morgan, only to forget his shooting boots.
Marcus Rashford 7 – Came on and provided a crucial opening goal within minutes. Injected energy, purpose and a decisive moment.
Jesse Lingard 6.5 – Buzzed across the surface as soon as he came on and did brilliantly to sneak in behind the back four in the lead-up to United’s second goal.
Marouane Fellaini 7 – A brilliant player to introduce when defending a lead: powerful, disruptive and immensely hard to stop. Scored a goal by simply letting the ball hit him – and that, ladies and gentleman, is what you call genius.
