Manchester United v Everton player ratings

MANCHESTER UNITED

DAVID DE GEA: Not tested to a great extent but dealt well with a Rooney and Ramirez pile-driver. 6

ASHLEY YOUNG: Provided good attacking support on the right but was worked hard defensively by Martina. 6

PHIL JONES: Worked well in partnership with Bailly and limited Everton's attack. 6

ERIC BAILLY: Had some good duels with Rooney and, overall, shaded that particular battle. 6

ANTONIO VALENCIA: Lit up Old Trafford with a stunning half-volley after just four minutes and did a sound job thereafter. 7

NEMANJA MATIC: Found Valencia for the early goal with a well-weighted pass and gave United a lot of control in midfield. 7

MAROUANE FELLAINI: Provided his usual nuisance value in the box for United but otherwise quiet. 6

MARCUS RASHFORD: Struggled to make an impact in the game and was taken off just after the hour. 4

HENRIKH MKHITARYAN: Made some promising runs and, after meeting some frustration, eventually broke through to settle the game with United's second goal. 7

JUAN MATA: Got into some good positions, constantly looked to create and was unlucky with a free-kick which hit the post. 7

ROMELU LUKAKU: Spurned a gilt-edged chance in the first half but came to life in the latter stages, setting up a goal for Mkhitaryan and grabbing one himself. 7

SUBSTITUTES:

JESSE LINGARD (for Rashford, 61): Provided more spark than the man he replaced but was unable to hit the target with a couple of opportunities. 6

ANDER HERRERA (for Mata, 77): Helped give United the extra energy that brought them three late goals. 6

ANTHONY MARTIAL (for Mkhitaryan, 88): Got on the scoresheet after United won a late penalty. 6

EVERTON

JORDAN PICKFORD: Looked alert and and did not deserve to concede four times. 6

CUCO MARTINA: Made some good runs on the right and was able to find his targets with some incisive passes. 7

MICHAEL KEANE: Made some strong defensive contributions but was almost made to pay for one sloppy pass. 6

ASHLEY WILLIAMS: A commanding performance, winning plenty of headers and tackles, was marred by the late error which led to United's killer second goal. 6

PHIL JAGIELKA: Also looked sold alongside Keane and Williams, particularly when dealing with crosses. 7

LEIGHTON BAINES: Everton were unable to make the most of the width he offered on the left. 6

MORGAN SCHNEIDERLIN: Became a more forceful presence in the second half. 6

IDRISSA GANA GUEYE: An efficient performance without standing out. 6

TOM DAVIES: Showed plenty of commitment, especially in terms of winning back possession, but passing let him down. 6

GYLFI SIGURDSSON: Unable to influence the game as United strangled a lot of Everton's attacks. 5

WAYNE ROONEY: Provided a threat and worked hard but did not get the luck his effort warranted. 7

SUBSTITUTES:

SANDRO RAMIREZ (for Davies, 66): Unable to provide any late spark, although he did extend De Gea late on. 6

DOMINIC CALVERT-LEWIN (for Gueye, 76): Could only watch as Everton capitulated in the latter stages. 5

KEVIN MIRALLAS (for Rooney, 82): Had little influence as United ran riot in the closing minutes. 5
