Paul Pogba opened the scoring for United in the first half after a simple tap-in before Henrikh Mkhitaryan slotted home from a well taken shot. Fellaini scored with a header at the death to give United all three points.
Here’s how Jose Mourinho’s men fared during the crunch encounter against Wenger’s side at the Theatre Of Dreams:
David de Gea: 6
Had a calm first half with nothing much to do. Was helpless for the goal the side conceded.
Antonio Valencia: 6
Going forward, the right-back did not offer much precision despite getting into good positions. Was solid defensively.
Chris Smalling: 5
For a player who has been playing match after match, Smalling defied fatigue and put up a decent show. Needed to be a bit quicker as he missed a good chance to score in the 2nd half.
Victor Lindelof: 5
He showed maturity and leadership quality and was commendable in the first half. Was guilty for providing Mkhitaryan the space to shoot, as the ball went through his legs.
Ashley Young: 7
Looked to possess the threat when surging ahead and was lively throughout. Made an assist for Fellaini.
Ander Herrera: 5
The Spaniard aimed to do things and looked busy. Was prudent with the ball, but lacked the dynamism in the second half.
Nemanja Matic: 6
Was very disciplined and comfortable with the ball. Could be blamed for the goal United conceded.
Paul Pogba: 8
Gave a decent display about himself on the pitch and was in the right position to score the goal.
Jesse Lingard: 5
Tried too many things and looked careless at times. Was replaced rightly in the second half by Anthony Martial.
Alexis Sanchez: 7
Had a good game against his former club and almost scored the side’s opener. Created chances and got into strong positions.
Romelu Lukaku: 6
Was the architect for United’s goal, but was culpable for breaking down attacks. Was taken off after an injury scare.
Marcus Rashford: 5
Was energetic, but could not break down the defence. Scored, but his goal was ruled off-side.
Anthony Martial: 7
Ran direct and looked to determine the game. His cross almost found Fellaini, whose header struck the net, but Rashford’s follow through was offside.
Marouane Fellaini: 7
Had a shot sailing above the bar on the follow through. Hit the bar with a header, before scoring the winner.
