De Gea: A fantastic double save in the first half. Unlucky that the defence were sleeping for the first Sheffield United goal, could do nothing about the second and did his best for their third. He didn’t do anything wrong. 7/10

Jones: The less I talk about him the better. He gets a 1 for his old-fashioned strong tackle in the first half. Otherwise, shockingly poor, again. Ole rightly subbed him at half time. 1/10

Maguire: Captained the side. Distribution wasn’t the best. Should have closed down Mousset for his goal, but otherwise, especially second half, grew into the game and was a calming figure. Jones made him nervy in the first, but that wasn’t his fault. We are yet to see the best of Harry yet though. 6/10

Lindelof: Again, like Maguire, much better second half once Jones was off. Again, distribution wasn’t the best, wasting possession. Nowhere to be seen for the second goal. Very debatable if he or Axel should be starting. 4/10

Wan-Bissaka: Brilliant defensively but needed more product going forward. A calming figure in that back line and wasn’t at fault for any goal. If he works on his attacking intent, he could be world class nonetheless. Got a yellow card for a late challenge. 6/10

Andreas: His worst game of the season by a country mile. Lost the ball every time he had it. Clumsy and rushed. Didn’t play well at all and was rightly subbed. 2/10

Fred: Again, shocking in possession. Got better in the second half but couldn’t find a teammate in the first. Getting a good run in the side, but today was one to forget. 4/10

Williams: First half was his poorest performance we have seen from him. Came out second half and showed his worth. Scored a great goal, and started the comeback. Received a silly yellow card. 7/10

James: Very, very quiet in the first half. Second half, like most of the players, much better. A big part of all three goals, and was a threat with his electric pace. United need to play from wide positions more and more, it is where we are most dangerous. 7/10

Martial: The Frenchman was poor today. Couldn’t hold the ball up, and didn’t look interested until midway through the second half. Good interplay with James for the third, but that was the best it got. Looked angry to be subbed. 4/10

Rashford: Had spells where he shone, but others where he was frustratingly wasteful. Took his goal well and put it on a plate for Greenwood but didn’t start playing until the 70th minute. 6/10


Lingard: Brought energy to the team in the second half in what was a positive substitution. One of his best performances of the season. Very positive on the ball. 6/10

Greenwood: Looked lively when he came on. Took his goal very well. People forget just how young he is. 6/10

Tuanzebe: Strange sub by Ole but that’s nothing against Axel. Look comfortable in the centre midfield role and calmed us down. 6/10
