2016/17 Player Ratings: Manchester United 4-1 West Ham – Mkhitaryan stars

David de Gea – The Spaniard made an error which allowed West Ham to get back level. Quiet putting that aside. 3/10

Antonio Valencia – Playing like a man possessed. He’s been an absolute joy to watch down that right, and it continued this evening. 7/10

Phil Jones – Credit to the young Englishman. He’s playing some solid football right now, and Jose will be thrilled to have another option. 7/10

Marcos Rojo – His no nonsense defending has been refreshing to watch. Taking his chance and giving the gaffer something to think about when Bailly returns. 7/10

Luke Shaw – His torrid season continues. Made a couple of mistakes early on, and was then forced off with an injury. 4/10

Michael Carrick – Makes us tick and offers the back four that extra protection. 6/10

Ander Herrera – Lively in midfield and that’s what we need to keep our tempo up. Played well again. 6/10

Henrikh Mkhitaryan – What a player. Grabbed two excellent assists at the start of each half, and his link-up play throughout was an absolute joy to watch. 8/10

Wayne Rooney – Ran the show. Picked the right pass and was tireless throughout. Unfortunate to get carded and will now miss Everton due to suspension. 6/10

Anthony Martial – Scored a brace, and deserved it. Played some fantastic football and looked back to his best. 8/10

Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Scored early on and held the ball up well. Added a second as the game drew to a close. Played superbly. 8/10

Subs:

Daley Blind – Did a job at left-back and kept West Ham quiet down his flank.

Bastian Schweinsteiger – Got a massive ovation from the Old Trafford crowd. Nice to see him back on the pitch.

Marcus Rashford – Not enough time to mark.
