(A score of 6 is around average)
David de Gea 4.5 – Made a few good saves, breaks Schmeichel’s long-time record for clean sheets at United. Almost cost his side a goal in the opening minutes of the second-half with some terrible passing.
Diogo Dalot 6 – Lacklustre first-half display. Rattled the crossbar in the second-half with a venomous drive.
Harry Maguire 6.5 – The captain was commanding on his return. Made up for his own error in the first half by adeptly recovering the ball after he was initially robbed of possession by Jack Harrison.
Luke Shaw 8 – Slotted in seamlessly at LCB, winning several headers. Moved to LB in the second half and delivered a stunning cross for the first goal.

Jadon Sancho 6.5 – Created United’s best chances in the first-half. Withdrawn for Garnacho in the second-half.
