Here are the ratings from Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the EFL Cup.

Starters

Sergio Romero: 7/10

Some scary moments where he didn’t hold onto the ball, but overall another solid performance from the best backup in Britain.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka: 8/10

Excellent defensively today, and was active in shutting down a scary spell for Chelsea near the end of the first half.

Victor Lindelof: 6.5/10

Should have done better dealing with Michy Batshuayi on his solo goal, but other than that had a good defensive performance.

Harry Maguire: 6.5/10

See above.

Marcos Rojo: 5/10

Rash tackling at times, and Chelsea found a lane down United’s left on more than one occasion. Also was the last man in front of Batshuayi on the equalizer.

Brandon Williams: 7/10

Looked a bit indecisive at times, but overall a nice performance at wing-back in a big game.

Fred: 6/10

Still looking a bit rushed on the ball, but was able to get into some dangerous positions today. Won the free kick that Rashford converted, and sent in a dangerous cross that just missed Martial.

Scott McTominay: 8/10

McTominay is continuing to develop into a really nice midfielder. Did some good work bossing it against Kovacic and Jorginho today.

Jesse Lingard: 5.5/10

Failed to make an impact, still not sure what role he is able to play in Ole’s system.

Daniel James: 7/10

Won the penalty for the opening goal, and kept up the energy throughout the match. Chelsea had their hands full with him nearly all game.

Marcus Rashford: 9/10

Great performance from Rashford today. Exorcised his penalty demons, sent in an absolute screamer of a free kick, and was influential in giving momentum back to United after Chelsea equalized.

Substitutes

Anthony Martial: 6/10

Was able to get involved, but didn’t make a real impact. Had a clever effort near the end that went just wide.

Ashley Young: 6/10

Gave some fresh legs for the defensive effort down the stretch.

Andreas Pereira: N/A

Didn’t really have time to make an impact.

Manager

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: 8/10

Did well getting the team ready today, and the 3 centre back formation appears to be working. The team has continued to recover well from a very difficult run of draws and losses, and have now won 3 straight away from home. Also looks smart giving Brandon Williams the start.
