2016/17 Player Ratings: Northampton Town 1-3 Manchester United

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

Subs:

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.
