Player Ratings: Sunderland 0-3 Manchester United – Magical Mkhi

Sergio Romero – Did very well in David de Gea’s absence. Made some great saves and distributed brilliantly. 7/10

Matteo Darmian – Started as the right-back and defensively he was excellent. 6/10

Eric Bailly – Aside from a couple of shaky moments he was very calm and composed. 6/10

Marcos Rojo – Not really tested, to be honest. Did what he had to do. 6/10

Luke Shaw – Subbed off after the hour mark with an apparent injury. Credit to him, though, he was superb. 7/10

Marouane Fellaini – Gave the captain’s armband by Mourinho, and he was alright. Didn’t really set the world alight, though. 5/10

Ander Herrera – Very lively, and began to pull the strings as the game wore on. 6/10

Paul Pogba – Drifted in and out of the match in the first 45, bossed it in the second half as the opposition were a man down in midfield. 6/10

Henrikh Mkhitaryan – Had a very, very, quiet first half but in the second half he was electric. Scored an absolute stunner. 7/10

Jesse Lingard – Ran the defence ragged for an hour and then was rightfully subbed off. Produced very little in the way of end product. 4/10

Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Pretty much mirrored his whole season. Does nothing for 30 minutes and then creates a wonderful goal out of nothing. 7/10

Subs:

Daley Blind – Deputised well for the injured Shaw.

Marcus Rashford – Shown a real turn of pace and finally got his goal! Well done, young man!

Anthony Martial – Injected even more pace into proceedings. Did well.
