David de Gea – Didn’t have an awful lot to do but made a crucial stop with his feet. 6/10
Ashley Young – Tried his best to bomb forward but his final ball was lacking. 5/10
Chris Smalling – Made an outstanding block at 0-0 to keep United on level terms. What a player he is turning into this season. 8/10 Man of the Match.
Daley Blind – Wasn’t tested whatsoever. Kept united moving in the right direction. 6/10
Marcos Rojo – Pushed forward wherever possible. Not troubled defensively. 6/10
Michael Carrick – His range of passing was excellent to see tonight. By far his best performance of the season. 7/10
Bastian Schweinsteiger – Controlled the middle of the park as per usual. 6/10
Juan Mata – Had a fairly quiet one. Made some nice passes but you expect more from the Spaniard. 5/10
Wayne Rooney – Took his goal well, but on the whole his performance still needs work despite his efforts. 6/10
Jesse Lingard – Unafraid to have a go. Made some nice runs and linked the play up wonderfully. Grabbed a superb cushioned assist for Rooney’s winner. 7/10
Anthony Martial – Perhaps his quietest game in a United shirt. Subbed just after the hour. 5/10
Marouane Fellaini – Won some headers, offered a different type of threat.
Memphis Depay – Came on and played poorly.
Ander Herrera – Not enough time to mark.
