Player Ratings: Rampant Romelu Lukaku as Man United down Chelsea

David de Gea – Had a couple of routine saves to make. There was huge power in Willian’s shot, but I always say that keepers shouldn’t get beat at their near post. 5/10

Antonio Valencia – He was pretty solid defensively, but his final ball wasn’t great. I’d like to see him offer himself as an outlet when going forward more, too. 5/10

Chris Smalling – Put his head on everything. Dealt with Morata well for the most part. 6/10

Victor Lindelof – Looked quite calm and composed. Seems to be growing into his role with each passing game. 6/10

Ashley Young – When he got in position to whip in a ball, he did one or two too many cut-backs and fake-crosses for my liking. 4/10

Nemanja Matic – His best display in 2018. He bossed the midfield from start to finish, winning tackles aplenty. 7/10

Scott McTominay – On the whole, his game was hugely positive. However, he did let Willian go for Chelsea’s goal, but he’ll learn from it. 6/10

Paul Pogba – Grew into the game. Playing in a three certainly helped him, but you still expect better from a man with his qualities. 6/10

Anthony Martial – Drifted in and out of proceedings, but his movement and passing in the build-up to Lukaku’s goal was crucial. 6/10

Alexis Sanchez – Pretty quiet for the most part. Sometimes I feel he’s trying too hard to make an impression. Probably should have scored in the first-half as well. 5/10

Romelu Lukaku – What a stunning second-half this lad had. His hold-up play, passing and willingness to work was an absolute joy to watch. Took his goal well, too. 8/10

Subs:

Jesse Lingard – Took his header brilliantly. His movement gave Chelsea nightmares.

Eric Bailly – Nice to see him back in action.
