David de Gea – Had a comfortable afternoon. Wasn’t really tested too thoroughly. 6/10

Ashley Young – Probably United’s poorest player on the day. He was careless in possession at times and his crossing wasn’t the best. 4/10

Phil Jones – He did quite well once again, and dealt with Glenn Murry relatively easily. 7/10

Victor Lindelof – Was pretty good. Played the ball out from the back nicely. He’s forming a great partnership with the aforementioned Jones. 7/10

Diogo Dalot – Called into the team late due to Shaw’s illness. He was good in the air, quick to the danger, confident and strong. An excellent outing. 6/10

Nemanja Matic – Broke up Brighton’s attacks on several occasions. Looked comfortable with the ball at his feet. He was outstanding. 8/10

Ander Herrera – Busy, active, always on the move. He didn’t give Brighton’s midfielders any space whatsoever and he also got United heading in the right direction when on the ball. 7/10

Paul Pogba – Scored the penalty and controlled the match from the middle. He made it look easy at times. 7/10

Jesse Lingard – Started brightly and hurried Brighton’s defenders when in possession. That final ball or shot was lacking, though. 6/10

Anthony Martial – Looked bright and threatening. Played some nice passes, took a few shots and tried to make things happen. 6/10

Marcus Rashford – The best player on the pitch by far. Scored an absolute scorcher, was unlucky to not have an assist to his name, too. He ran rampant. 9/10

Subs:

Juan Mata – Didn’t really get into the game.

Romelu Lukaku – Not enough time to mark.
