Starters

Sergio Romero: 7/10

Not tested a lot, but had a couple very good saves.

Ashley Young: 8/10

Solid showing from Young, who also finished well from a tight angle to start the second half scoring spree.

Axel Tuanzebe: 7/10

Not a lot to do, but solid pairing with Maguire.

Harry Maguire: 7/10

Not a lot to do, but solid pairing with Tuanzebe.

Brandon Williams: 8/10

Williams continued his excellent start to his Manchester United career with another confident performance.

James Garner: 7/10

Decent performance in midfield, good to see him get a full 90 in the first team too.

Nemanja Matic: 6/10

Didn’t make any costly mistakes on his return from injury, but looks like the same aged midfielder we remembered.

Juan Mata: 8/10

Very good work from Mata initiating offensive play. He’s still got a good eye for the game even if his physicality isn’t what it used to be.

Mason Greenwood: 10/10

Two fantastic goals from Greenwood today. He’s an excellent finisher, and showing that he deserves more meaningful minutes in the first team.

Andreas Pereira: 7.5/10

Actually had a pretty good outing, particularly in the second half. Very clever trickery on the build up to the first goal.

Anthony Martial: 6/10

Whiffed on a couple good chances. Decent work in the second half, but not his best display.

Substitutes

Tahith Chong: 6/10

Worked to get involved, but

Ethan Laird: 6/10

Brought some energy to the game, but it was all settled by the time of his arrival. Not much for him to do.

Phil Jones: N/A

Didn’t have much to do in his time on the pitch.

Manager

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: 7.5/10

A really poor first half turned into an emphatic win shortly after the restart. The mixed lineup took a while to settle into the game, but Ole managed to light a fire, get the win, and bring on a couple more academy graduates
