Player Ratings: Burnley 0-2 Manchester United – Magical Martial

David de Gea – Didn’t really have anything to do except watch. That tells you just how well the back four played. 5/10

Ashley Young – Played as a makeshift full-back one again and played well. Very solid defensively. 6/10

Eric Bailly – Growing into a brilliant player. His sheer pace gets him out of so many sticky situations, and he didn’t give Andre Gray a sniff. 7/10

Daley Blind – Did alright for the most part, but he’s just not a centre-half. 5/10

Matteo Darmian – His great form continues. Defensively, he’s just superb to watch when he’s playing well. Credit to him. 6/10

Ander Herrera – Rapidly turning into our most important player. Once again, his tireless work rate helped drag Manchester United through the match. 7/10

Marouane Fellaini – Is now a regular in the side and more often than not he puts in a good performance. 6/10

Paul Pogba – Definitely one of his better days. He controlled the game from the get-go and won the midfield battle pretty easily. 7/10

Jesse Lingard – Put in a shift as per usual. Made intelligent runs and kept Burnley’s defenders on their toes. 5/10

Wayne Rooney – Scored the goal that killed the game off and it was nice to see him back. Did alright considering he hasn’t played in a while. 6/10

Anthony Martial – Led the line wonderfully, and you feel this is a great opportunity for him to send a message to the manager. He scored a cracking team goal and had a hand in everything good about our play. 8/10


Marcus Rashford – Lively when he came on.

Michael Carrick – Not enough time to mark.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan – Not enough time to mark.
