Player Ratings: Swansea City 0-4 Manchester United – Magical Mkhitaryan

David de Gea – The Spaniard didn’t really have a save to make, although he gave Ayew a big target when he hit the bar in the first half. 6/10

Antonio Valencia – Didn’t get forward as much as usual, but defensively, he was untested. 5/10

Eric Bailly – Was brilliant to see him get his first United goal. He defended well. 7/10

Phil Jones – Put in another quietly excellent performance. He was first to everything once again. 6/10

Daley Blind – He’s quite limited going forward, and if there is one area of the team we can improve upon, it’s the left-back position. 5/10

Nemanja Matic – Mopped up absolutely every 50/50 challenge that he was involved in. What a monster. 7/10

Paul Pogba – Endured a frustrating first 45 minutes, but my he turned on the style in the second half. He was outstanding. 8/10

Juan Mata – Played those intelligent passes forward and made the right runs. 6/10

Henrikh Mkhitaryan – Had a quiet match, but still finished the game with two assists. He came to the fore when it mattered most. 7/10

Marcus Rashford – Lightning quick and gave Swansea a problem, particularly on the counter-attack. That final ball or shot was lacking today, though. Should have scored in the first half. 6/10

Romelu Lukaku – Didn’t really get into the game but still found the back of the net. He’s paid to score goals, so he has to be happy. 7/10

Subs:

Marouane Fellaini – Changed the game once again, mostly due to his combative style of play.

Anthony Martial – Scored another priceless goal. He’s forcing his way into Jose Mourinho’s plans.

Ander Herrera – Not really enough time to make an impact.
