David de Gea – What a performance from the Spaniard. He made some outstanding saves to help United to victory. 8/10
Matteo Darmian – Looked poor at left-back and gave Liverpool way too much space. Much better on the right. 6/10
Chris Smalling – Once again another commanding performance from the centre-half. Superb. 7/10
Daley Blind – Did well against the extremely talented Roberto Firmino. 6/10
Ashley Young – Subbed early due to injury. 6/10
Morgan Schneiderlin – Protected the back four extremely well. I’d still like to see a bit more of an attacking threat from him though. 6/10
Marouane Fellaini – Started poorly but grew into the game. Played some nice passes, won plenty of headers and hit the bar leading up to Rooney’s goal. 6/10
Jesse Lingard – Very quiet. Couldn’t get past his man at all, and rightfully subbed in the second half. 4/10
Ander Herrera – Not his finest game in a United shirt. Drifted in and out of the action. 5/10
Anthony Martial – His pace gave Liverpool nightmares all game. What a player. 7/10
Wayne Rooney – Didn’t get all that involved, but took his chance when it matters. 7/10
Cameron Borthwick-Jackson – Did extremely well for a young man in a high pressure game.
Juan Mata – Came on and linked the play up nicely.
Memphis Depay – Not enough time to mark.
