Manchester United were solid and experienced in their showing as they meted out a convincing 3-0 win over Derby County in the FA Cup on Thursday.
The Red Devils saw a goal from Luke Shaw and a brilliant brace from Odion Ighalo seal their victory as the home side was unable to muster even a consolation goal.
Here’s how the Red Devils fared on the night:
Sergio Romero – 9.0
Once more cementing his spot as the finest back-up keeper in English football. That save for Rooney’s late attempt was simply magical.
Diogo Dalot – 8.0
Prominent in his forward runs but often seemed to be left out in the build-up play.
Eric Bailly – 6.9
Wasn’t entirely convincing in filling up Harry Maguire’s gap. Needs to sure up his discipline.
Victor Lindelof – 7.0
Decent display from the centre-back who was great at relaunching the play from the back.
Luke Shaw – 9.0
Arguably the Man of the Match. A brilliant goal in the first half then went on to play a role in Odion Ighalo’s goal. Great forward presence.
Scott McTominay – 7.2
Scrappy and completed the most passes in the game. Just what United need.
Fred – 7.5
Remarkable yet again and had a brilliant pass success percentage.
Juan Mata – 8.3
Great showing from the captain, especially in the opening minutes.
Bruno Fernandes – 7.8
Did his role fairly well and ensured that the creative flair was kept up.
Jesse Lingard – 7.6
Still not fully convincing and could have scored on one occasion.
Odion Ighalo – 8.8
2 goals in this game, 3 goals in 2 starts. The Nigerian is loved at the side he loves and will be expected to score several more.
Andreas Pereira – 6.5
Fairly decent cameo, although a bit wasteful upfront.
Anthony Martial – 5.9
Didn’t much in the way of offensive contributions.
Brandon Williams – Brought on too late to make a tangible difference.
