Player Ratings: Manchester United 3-0 Cambridge United

David de Gea – Wasn’t tested at all. Claimed a few crosses, but didn’t have to do an awful lot. 6/10

Paddy McNair – Switched to right-back and did a superb job. Looked a real threat offensively and linked up well with the midfield. 8/10 Man of the Match.

Chris Smalling – The back line didn’t have an awful lot to do. Expected more from him at set pieces though. 6/10

Jonny Evans – Nice to see him back involved, and although there wasn’t really an offensive threat he did ok. 6/10

Marcos Rojo – Lept superbly for his first-half goal, and once again put in an excellent performance full of energy. 7/10

Daley Blind – Made an early almost-fatal error. After that he kept the ball moving just as you’d expect. 5/10

Marouane Fellaini – His height and power posed Cambridge a real problem. 6/10

Juan Mata – The #10 kept cropping up in great offensive positions and he more than deserve his goal. 7/10

Angel di Maria – Looked lively as he reverted back to the middle of the park. Those whipped crosses of his are really dangerous. 7/10

Wayne Rooney – Full of energy, desire and drive, but didn’t really cause the League Two side enough problems. 5/10

Robin van Persie – Struggled to get into the game. Had a couple of decent chances which he should have taken. 4/10


Ander Herrera – Grabbed an assist for James Wilson’s superb strike.

James Wilson – Took his goal brilliantly, and kept the Cambridge defence on their toes.

Ashley Young – Great to see him back involved.
