David de Gea – The Spaniard had to pick the ball out of his net three times. He as at fault for none of them. 5/10

Ashley Young – Probably United’s biggest threat in the first 45.  Struggled in the second half. 4/10

Victor Lindelof – He always looks so shaky which rubs off on the rest of the defence. The second West Ham goal bounced off him into the back of the net. Poor. 3/10

Scott McTominay – Played at the heart of the back three… He just doesn’t have the positional sense to play in defence. He was exposed several times. 2/10

Chris Smalling – The Englishman was ok, although it took him a good half-hour to find his way into the system. Not helped by the shaky mess that was going on around him. 5/10

Luke Shaw – At fault for Anderson’s goal as he didn’t track the run. He spent far too much time sitting back from that point onwards, it was tough for him to move forward. 4/10

Nemanja Matic – A bystander at times. Mark Noble ran rings around him and the rest of the midfield. Not good enough. 3/10

Marouane Fellaini – Showed some fight and spirit. Would have scored on another day thanks to some excellent goalkeeping. 5/10

Paul Pogba – Poor. Careless. Gave the ball away. Just didn’t look interested. Rightfully subbed. 3/10

Romelu Lukaku – Not great. Just didn’t get himself into any real goalscoring positions. 3/10

Anthony Martial – Looked busy, tried to influence the game. Things just weren’t coming off. 4/10

Subs:

Marcus Rashford – Scored a super goal to give United brief hope.

Juan Mata – Didn’t do anything to change the game.

Fred – Not enough time to mark.
