2016/17 Player Ratings: West Brom 0-2 Manchester United – Zlatan Ibrahimovic masterclass

David de Gea – Did not have a single save to make which emphasises just how dominant United were. 6/10

Antonio Valencia – Nice to see Valencia back following his suspension. Did very well to deal with the pace of Phillips. 6/10

Phil Jones – Forming an excellent partnership with Rojo and willing to protect him at all costs as shown with the Rondon incident. 7/10

Marcos Rojo – Didn’t give the WBA attack a sniff throughout, and his physicality and energy amongst that back line is brilliant. 7/10

Matteo Darmian – The Italian didn’t have an awful lot to do, but as the game wore on he found it tough to stop the West Brom attack. 5/10

Michael Carrick – In typical Carrick fashion, he just rolled through the game relatively easily and offered the back four that extra protection. 7/10

Ander Herrera – Lively, full of running and always the first to press. Played very well. 6/10

Paul Pogba – Drifted in and out of the match and tried to pull the strings. A real force in the midfield. 6/10

Wayne Rooney – That hunger is definitely back, and he was at the heart of everything good for United. A real driving force. 7/10

Jesse Lingard – Played brilliantly. His ball into Ibrahimovic for his opener was inch-perfect. He ran the channels throughout and did really well. 7/10

Zlatan Ibrahimovic – What an outstanding footballer. Held the ball up outstandingly and more than deserved two wonderful goals. 9/10 Man of the Match.

Subs:

Marcus Rashford – Looked lively and made some super runs.

Chris Smalling – Nice to see him back on the pitch after injury.

Marouane Fellaini – Came on and helped see the game out.
