Player Ratings from Everton 0-2 Manchester United

David De Gea (7)

Not troubled by Everton’s stagnant attack. Took on a tourist type role in the match as United dominated the midfield.

Victor Lindelof (6)

Forced to play right back after Ashley Young’s suspension. Troubled by Bolasie’s pace but recovered well.

Phil Jones (7)

Vocal at the back. Passing range is limited and could be a bit more adventurous.

Marcos Rojo (8)

Brilliant last-ditch tackle denied Niasse in the first half. Performance against Burnley was so bad that he was lucky to be in the side. Yet Rojo proved that he was mentally and physically able to compete.

Luke Shaw (7)

United must realise that Shaw should be their first choice left-back next season. Excelled down the left. Final delivery could’ve been cleaner though.

Nemanja Matic (5)

Neat positioning shut out any potential Everton attacks but the Serb’s passing range was surreally all over the place. Needs a break.

Ander Herrera (6)

First game in four and lacked composure. Almost too eager to impress. Improved in the second half.

Paul Pogba (9)

Best performance in a United shirt this season. Ran the show and flummoxed the home side with his power, presence and potency. United must play 4-3-3 in every game for the rest of the season.

Juan Mata (7)

Out on the right in an attacking three, he lacked the pace of Valencia behind him to be a real threat. Resorted to long shots and was unlucky to see one cannon across the post.

Jesse Lingard (8)

The definition of a player in a purple patch. Yet another goal for the Red Devils, and this one was crucial as it sealed a vital away win.

Anthony Martial (7)

The main man up-front after Lukaku’s injury. Lacked decisiveness until the goal but the composure was a mark of a man who needs to play in a front three.


Marcus Rashford (6)

Gave the home side a problem with his pace.

Daley Blind (5)

Shored things up at the end.

Axel Tuanzebe (N/A)

A two minute cameo appearance.
