How did Manchester United players Memphis, Andreas Pereira and Anthony Martial get on against Shrewsbury Town?

Sergio Romero 7/10

A perfectly reasonable performance, starting one counterattack with an early, intelligent throw. There wasn't a great amount of work for him to do, which is probably for the best.

Guillermo Varela 6/10

An easy match to make a return to fitness. Relatively untroubled, as he should have been. What is there to say about a game against awful opposition?

Daley Blind and Chris Smalling 6/10

Miscellaneous

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson 6/10

He was an injury doubt before the match, and left at half time. He probably shouldn't have been risked, and obviously that's the case in retrospect. Nevertheless, more minutes for a young player is always handy. There's no return date for him, though, which is certainly worrying.

Ander Herrera and Morgan Schneiderlin 6/10

More of this please. Though the concerning thing is if this is their level.

Jesse Lingard 6/10

Yet another injury. There is a rumour that United's physio team have given up hope of ever getting Phil Jones into shape to be a reliable first-team player, and unfortunately that must be the case for Lingard soon. His pace his useful, but better players can be bought this summer, such as Felipe Anderson.

Juan Mata 6/10

Hi, Juan. Mr 6/10.

Memphis 6/10

At least he didn't get injured. In truth, these games against easy opponents are probably what he needs to reassert his confidence and make sure he finishes the season strongly.

Anthony Martial 6/10

Never leave us.

Substitutes

Joe Riley 6/10

He didn't look out of place on his debut. Which is promising in that he wasn't overwhelmed, and bad, because looking out of place in United's side might make you quite good.

Will Keane 7/10

Ah. Oh dear. When Michael Owen takes pity on you for your injury record, you're in trouble. He was good for the minutes he was fit, though.

Andreas Pereira 6/10

One day he will get to start a game and we'll actually know whether he's worthwhile or not.
