Player Ratings: Brilliant Victor Lindelof as Man United beat Brighton

David de Gea – Untested. The defence did a good job of protecting him in turgid conditions. 6/10

Antonio Valencia – Defended well, but it’s these types of matches where you expect more from him in an offensive capacity. 5/10

Victor Lindelof – Brilliant. He’s slowly beginning to find his feet as a Manchester United player. He put in a brilliant tackle to get the crowd going. 7/10 

Chris Smalling – Solid alongside Lindelof. Won several headers to keep Glenn Murray at bay. 6/10

Ashley Young – He’s a great asset for Jose Mourinho and once again he proved it with a good outing. He scored the all-important goal (albeit via a deflection). 6/10

Nemanja Matic – I still can’t believe Chelsea let us have this guy. He’s just superb and a player that we can rely upon. 6/10

Paul Pogba – Got 90 minutes under his belt as he continues to work his way back to full fitness. Comfortably our most talented player. 6/10

Marcus Rashford – Moved to the right which doesn’t suit his game as much as he can’t cut in. 5/10

Juan Mata – Slow in possession, sloppy with his passing and lacks any real pace to do damage on the counter. Not a good day out. 3/10

Anthony Martial – Couldn’t get going. Had a few chances to go at his man, but things just weren’t coming off for him. Not his day. 4/10

Romelu Lukaku – Quiet. Didn’t really carve out any opportunities but he kept working his socks off for the cause. 4/10


Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Brought that calming presence to the pitch.

Marouane Fellaini – Threw his weight around and won some key tackles.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan – Looked a bit sulky, as if he feels he should have started.
