Player Ratings: Manchester United 3-0 Ipswich Town

David de Gea – Didn’t have an awful lot to do. 6/10

Chris Smalling – Marshalled the back four well as per usual. 6/10

Daley Blind – Kept it simple and moved United in the right direction. 6/10

Ashley Young – Got plenty of crosses in but not many were meaningful. Linked up nicely with Pereira. 6/10

Bastian Schweinsteiger – Controlled the game from minute one. This man is pure class. 7/10 Man of the Match.

Ander Herrera – Looked lively. Kept the ball moving and linked nicely with Juan Mata. 5/10

Juan Mata – Fairly quiet. Drifted in side more often than not and switched the play well. 5/10

Wayne Rooney – Took his goal superbly. Didn’t do an awful lot putting that aside though. 6/10

Marouane Fellaini – Won plenty of headers and played the ball off well. 6/10

Andreas Pereira – Scored a wonderful free-kick. Kept the Ipswich defenders busy. A debut where he didn’t look out of place alongside the likes of Wayne Rooney etc. 7/10


Anthony Martial – Came on, scored a cool finish. Four in four for the young man.

Phil Jones – Nice to see him back in action.

Memphis Depay – Not enough time to mark.
