David de Gea 5.5 – Could have done much better with Aaron Mooy’s shot in the lead-up to Huddersfield’s opener and found himself caught out for the second. An unusually uncomfortable afternoon.
Antonio Valencia 6.5 – Another organised, energetic performance from the Ecuadorian, who made a series of important interceptions in the first half. Couldn’t offer much going forward when Manchester United desperately needed some thrust out wide.
Phil Jones N/A – Looked commanding during the early stages but, having only just come back from injury, once again pulled up early on. An all too familiar sight.
Chris Smalling 6 – Produced a physically imposing display at the back, replete with some important defensive headers, but often lacked composure and positional sense
Ashley Young 6 – The Englishman begun the game brightly, bursting into space and always searching for men in the box, only to fade dramatically in the second half, lacking quality in his delivery or any real pace.
Nemanja Matic 7 – Once again Man United’s best performer in an otherwise woeful display. Looked confident on the ball and always sought to make things happen. Needs Paul Pogba back alongside him as soon as possible.
Ander Herrera 6 – Displayed plenty of fight and intent alongside Matic but his inability to bring any forward impetus is worrying.
Jesse Lingard 6.5 – Produced plenty of good touches and smart runs, always asking for the ball, but one again couldn’t have much impact in the final third.
Juan Mata 5.5 – A day to forget for the Spaniard. Couldn’t create any momentum and needlessly gave the ball away for Huddersfield’s first goal. Subbed off at half time.
Anthony Martial 6 – Showed glimpses of his menace but found himself swamped by a hoard of blue and white shirts whenever he got the ball. A frustrating afternoon.
Romelu Lukaku 6 – Once again a blunt instrument in front of goal. Couldn’t forge any chances for himself but did provide a sumptuous assist for Marcus Rashford.
Victor Lindelof 4 – The worst possible first Premier League outing. Looked worryingly frail in the build-up to Huddersfield’s opener and his mistake for their second was something you’d expect to see on a Sunday league pitch.
Marcus Rashford 7 – Came on at half time and immediately injected life into United’s attacking display, nodding home his seventh goal of the season from Lukaku’s cross.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan 6.5 – Provided a more dynamic threat than Mata, picking up the ball in space and moving forward with intent, but once again couldn’t link up with United’s wide men.
