Player Ratings: Romelu Lukaku firing again as Manchester United limp past WBA

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

Antonio Valencia – Came off with a hamstring injury after having a good hour. 6/10

Phil Jones – Defended well for the most part. Looked nervy towards the end, though, when WBA were pressing to draw level. 5/10

Chris Smalling – Put his head on absolutely everything. Led the back four and remained calm. 7/10

Ashley Young – Not his best outing when going forward, but still comfortably our best option at left-back. 5/10

Nemanja Matic – Excellent as per usual. Not only did he protect our back four, but he also drove United forward in the other direction. Super. 8/10

Ander Herrera – Had a poor first-half. Gave the ball away far too often. 4/10

Jesse Lingard – Looked threatening in the second 45 as the game wore on. Scored the all-important winner. 6/10

Marcus Rashford – Just not his day. He became embroiled in a personal battle with Hegazi and that seemed to take away from his attacking performance. 5/10

Juan Mata – Showed moments of genius and class but drifted out of the game too much. 5/10

Romelu Lukaku – Scored a perfectly placed header to get United on their way. Held the ball up well. 6/10

Subs:

Marcos Rojo – Came on for the injured Valencia.

Anthony Martial – Killed the game with some nice play by the corner flag.

Scott McTominay – Won a couple of key tackles.
