Sergio Romero – Didn’t have an awful lot to do. Could’ve gave away a second penalty at the end of the first half. 6/10
Timothy Fosu-Mensah – Nice to see the young man start at right-back. Didn’t play anywhere near his best, though. Subbed. 5/10
Chris Smalling – The Englishman didn’t have much to do, but when a threat arose he dealt with it. 6/10
Daley Blind – Cool, calm and collected for the most part. Left his foot dangling in for Northampton’s penalty, though… 5/10
Marcos Rojo – Made a shaky start. Played a hand in conceding the penalty. He’s just not good. 3/10
Morgan Schneiderlin – Protected the back four nicely, and even got United moving forward. Was great. 6/10
Michael Carrick – Great to have his experience back in the team. He repaid Jose’s faith in him with a lovely goal in the first half. 7/10
Memphis Depay – His first start of the season. Looked bright without showing any real cutting edge. Unlucky to be subbed. 5/10
Ander Herrera – His usual self. Lively and always picked the right pass. Scored an absolutely brilliant goal to put United back in front. Man of the Match. 8/10
Ashley Young – The forgotten man of United. Had a quiet first half. Didn’t improve much in the second. 5/10
Wayne Rooney – Looked sluggish for the most part. Just not good enough to start at the moment. 3/10
Marcus Rashford – Picked out Herrera wonderfully for United’s second goal. Did well. Capitalised on an error to score the third.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Held the ball up nicely, but didn’t have any runners in-behind him.
Marouane Fellaini – Pressed high and won the ball back on numerous occasions.
