De Gea 8
Pulled off a fantastic save from James Maddison to preserve United’s lead in the first half.
Was sloppy to start the game, and got dominated by Ben Chilwell and Demarai Gray. Looked more comfortable in the second half.
One of his best performances in a United shirt. Looked unstoppable. Did not deserve to end the game without a clean sheet.
Looked comfortable alongside Bailly, especially during the second half.
Similar to Bailly, came up with one of his best performances in a United shirt, and was rewarded for his performance by his first ever goal in senior football.
Looked comfortable in the holding midfield role, and looks like he can challenge Nemanja Matic for a starting berth.
Despite only training for 4 days, did not miss a beat. Controlled the middle of the park for United, and was solid defensively.
Gave the ball away cheaply at times, but switched the ball well and complimented Pogba’s game.
Despite winning the penalty that led to Pogba’s opening goal, he was very poor in possession and gave the ball away far too cheaply. Looked the complete opposite to the Sanchez we saw in preseason.
Did well to help Darmian defensively, and kept possession of the ball, but was still unable to impact the game going forward.
Lost the ball every time the ball came to his feet. Does not look comfortable as a striker
