Manchester United hosted Reading at Old Trafford in the third round of the FA Cup, in what turned out to be an easy 4-0 win for the Red Devils, thanks to goals from Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, and a record-equalling strike from captain Wayne Rooney.
Here’s how the defending FA Cup Champions fared against Jaap Stam’s men:
SERGIO ROMERO: 6
Was hardly tested properly until the 90th minute.
ASHLEY YOUNG: 7
Filled in well for Valencia at right-back, and helped offensively by whipping in a few dangerous crosses.
CHRIS SMALLING: 6
Did well at the back.
MARCOS ROJO: 6
Created a chance for an early opener with a terrific long pass for Rooney, before getting subbed off due to injury.
DALEY BLIND: 6
Did the job at left-back.
MICHAEL CARRICK: 7
Influential as always in the middle of the park, and the fact that United have remained unbeaten whenever he has started this season says a lot.
MAROUANE FELLAINI: 8
One of his best games in the famous Red shirt – dominated the midfield with his aggressive tackling and flawless passing.
JUAN MATA: 7
Created chances and was dangerous throughout, but forgot his shooting boots on the night.
WAYNE ROONEY: 8
Could’ve easily broken Sir Bobby Charlton’s record, but only managed to score the one. Created numerous chances, and was terrific for the entire 90 minutes. Man of the Match.
ANTHONY MARTIAL: 8
Tormented the Reading defence, and netted a delightful finish that clearly impressed Mourinho.
MARCUS RASHFORD: 8
Regained his goal scoring touch with a brace, but could have scored many more. Getting his form back.
PHIL JONES: 6
Came on for Rojo early in the game, and helped keep the defence stable.
TIMOTHY FOSU-MENSAH: 6
Energetic cameo for the young Dutchman.
BASTIAN SCHWEINSTEIGER: 6
Filled in well for Carrick.
