Player Ratings: West Brom 0-3 United

David de Gea: Blocked everything that came his way, which wasn’t a great deal to be fair. 6/10

Rafael: On form today, got forward at every chance, almost scoring a first half header. Played in a superb ball for Rooney’s goal. Replaced by Vidic late on. Man of the match 8/10

Phil Jones: Back from injury, at the heart of the defence. Had a solid game and scored the opening goal from a set piece. 7/10

Chris Smalling: Solid at the back. 6/10

Patrice Evra: Decent game at the back, got forward too. 6/10

Michael Carrick: Efficent in midfield alongside Fellaini. 6/10

Marouanne Fellaini: Broke up play but also made some clumsy challenges. Was fairly busy and had a good game overall. 7/10

Juan Mata: Relatively quiet although did prevent a West Brom goal in the second half. 6/10

Wayne Rooney: Decent game, scored a header at the back post from Rafael’s cross. Laid on a well weighted ball for Welbeck to finish. 7/10

Adnan Januzaj: Booked early on for a handball and had a quiet game. Replaced by Kagawa. 5/10

Robin van Persie: Played in a fine ball from the free kick which resulted in the opening goal, however he was a red card waiting to happen. Flew into several challenges and didn’t test the keeper once. 4/10

Substitutes

Danny Welbeck: Came on for RVP and bagged himself a goal that was well taken. Kept hold of the ball well. 6/10

Shinji Kagawa: Decent cameo from the Japanese playmaker 6/10

Nemanja Vidic: Replaced Rafael late on, not a lot to do for the departing Serbian.
