Manchester United Football Club head into the international break in buoyant mood, following the 4-0 drubbing of Crystal Palace. Jose Mourinho’s men are looking in ominous form right now, and that certainly bodes well for the remainder of the campaign.
For their performances in the aforementioned game against Palace, a trio of Manchester United stars have been named in WhoScored’s Team of the Week.

First up, we have Ashley Young. The Englishman scored an 8.1 with WhoScored, largely due to the clean sheet that he picked up and the assist he gave to Marouane Fellaini. His all-round play was calm and assured, and Mourinho will be absolutely delighted with him.
Then, we have our young starlet Marcus Rashford. The man from Wythenshawe has started this season in insane form. He scored an 8.8, thanks to the assist he gave Juan Mata in the early-goings of the game. He terrorised Palace for the duration of the match although he didn’t get himself on the scoresheet on this occasion.
Onto the star of the show; Marouane Fellaini. The big Belgian picked up a 9.3, making him the joint-highest scorer on the week. He scored two goals, both of which were tap-ins, but it was a Man of the Match performance put in by the 29-year-old.
