Sergio Romero – Had a quiet evening barring picking the ball out of the net as the first half wound down. 5/10
Antonio Valencia – Got himself forward where possible. Didn’t have much defending to do. 5/10
Victor Lindelof – Another calm and composed night for Lindelof. He’s growing into the role nicely. 6/10
Chris Smalling – Led the back line excellently. Won headers aplenty. Kept things tight. 6/10
Daley Blind – Hasn’t been involved recently, but his reading of the game was exceptional tonight. 6/10
Luke Shaw – What a night for the young man. Started his first game in 219 days and put in a Man of the Match performance. Offensively, we don’t have a better left-back. 8/10
Ander Herrera – Did alright. Subbed off as soon as United took the lead, which is perhaps an indicator he’ll play on Sunday. 5/10
Paul Pogba – Bossed it as per usual. He’s at the heart of everything good about United’s attacking play. 7/10
Juan Mata – His touch is exceptional. Mata tried some tricky passes, but unfortunately, they didn’t come off for him tonight. 5/10
Marcus Rashford – Scored a vital goal to end his drought and give United a victory. He just keeps improving. 6/10
Romelu Lukaku – A’la Rashford. He scored at a vital time and will be in confident mood ahead of the derby. 6/10
Scott McTominay – Sured things up in the middle.
Axel Tuanzebe – Nice to see him back involved.
Anthony Martial – I’m not sure why Jose risked him for the last fifteen minutes, but he came through unscathed.
