Martial scores again!

A look at player performances after an impressive visit to Carrow Road

David De Gea: A pedestrian afternoon for the Spaniard with little to do throughout the game. Unfortunate not to keep a clean sheet however. – 7

Wan Bissaka: Yet another impressive display from the young right back and looks to have made great improvement in his game going forward. The only downside from his performance being the yellow card after a late challenge. – 7.5

Maguire: Looking to get back to his commanding best, the imposing centre back took control of the back line and shut down almost all of Norwich’s advances on goal. – 7.5

Lindelof: Now a fixture at the back alongside Maguire, the Swede looked as composed as ever, one would be forgiven for thinking he had ice running through his veins. Calm and collected on the ball and often looked to play out of defence. – 7.5

Young: Much to the ire of many United fans, Young started ahead of the promising Brandon Williams. However the veteran may have put in his best shift of the season to date, although he was seen to be left compromised on a handful of occasions as Norwich’s Max Aarons got the better of him. – 6.5

Fred: He may have given the ball away on a few occasions but the Brazilian looks to finally be finding his footing at United with a string of impressive performances. Made a number of good challenges in midfield and was often the pivot from defence to attack. – 7

McTominay: Without a doubt the Man of the Match for many, the young Scotsman opened United’s account with a wonderful strike from the edge of the box. Despite the error that led to the Norwich goal, McTominay continues to look every bit the leader United have been crying out for in midfield for years. – 8.5

Pereira: Often scrutinised by United fans who question what he brings to the team, the Brazilian midfielder showed once again why this scrutiny may be unjust. His work rate off the ball is second to none in the team and his constant press looked to force Norwich into difficult positions when trying to play out the back. – 7

James: Somewhat of a quiet afternoon for young Danny James, this by no means however suggests an unproductive games. Having won a penalty and provided an assist, he still had a significant impact on the match. – 7.5

Rashford: After weeks of sub-par perfomances, Rashford looks to finally be getting over the slump he was in. Despite having his penalty saved, he managed to get a goal and provide an assist for Martial. He also ran at the Norwich defence with a confidence his game has lacked for weeks now. – 7.5

Martial: Slowly getting back into the groove of things after returning from injury, Tony grabbed his 2nd goal in 2 games for United and looks like the Devils most prolific option down the middle. Unlucky to have his penalty saved. – 7


Greenwood: Coming on after the game had been secured, there was little for the young forward to do. Despite this he still looked to make the most of his time on the pitch and put his name into contention for a starting spot. – 6.5

Lingard: Had little time to make any significant impact on the game but still looked hungry with the few minutes he was given on the pitch. – 6.5

Garner: Also had little time to make any impact on the game, looked more to come on and add fresh legs to the middle of the pitch and help United see out the game. – 6
