Player Ratings: Manchester United overcome resilient Huddersfield 2-0

David de Gea – Pretty much a bystander throughout. Barely touched the ball. 5/10

Antonio Valencia – Made some nice runs forward, but his delivery into the box was lacking. 5/10

Chris Smalling – Bounced back well. Dealt with everything that came his way, but tougher tests will come. 6/10

Marcos Rojo – Defended excellently, however, his distribution was poor. 5/10 

Luke Shaw – Great to see him back involved, he certainly offers us more in an offensive capacity. 6/10

Nemanja Matic – Didn’t really have an awful lot to do in terms of defence. He just kept things ticking over nicely. 6/10

Scott McTominay – The young man got absolutely clattered for a stone-wall penalty that wasn’t given in the first 45. He got up and kept working hard, though. 6/10

Jesse Lingard – The Warrington-born attacker was lively and had a few good chances in the first half. Quietened down in the second 45, though and was rightfully subbed. 6/10

Juan Mata – Pretty quiet. He tried to make things happen but his final ball was often lacking. 5/10

Alexis Sanchez – Got kicked off the park for 90 minutes but never stopped working and more than deserved his goal. 7/10

Romelu Lukaku – Took his goal excellently and grew into the game, despite a quiet first-half. 6/10

Subs:

Marcus Rashford – Looked menacing down that left-hand side.

Paul Pogba – Probably our best player despite barely getting 20 minutes under his belt.

Anthony Martial – Not enough time to mark.
