After a nail-biting finish at Wolverhampton Wanderers in mid-week, Manchester United registered a comfortable 3-0 win over West Ham on Sunday afternoon.

Erik ten Hag’s men were on the front foot from the get-go, and this while his forwards didn’t let many chances go to waste. Rasmus Hojlund opened the scoring in the 23rd minute before Alejandro Garnacho bagged a second-half brace to seal United’s fourth win in five games in all competitions this year. Here’s a rundown of how United’s players fared in the game:

Andre Onana – 7.0

The game could’ve unraveled in a very different fashion had he not made an incredible save to deny Edson Alvarez from close range very early in the game. Kept a well-deserved clean sheet.

Diogo Dalot – 8.5

As always, heavily involved in build-up by drifting inside. Defensively solid and made a great goal-saving block to stop Jarrod Bowen. Most impressively, picked forwards from deep with eight accurate long balls. Man of the Match.

Harry Maguire – 6.5

Was one of the most composed players on the pitch in the first half, but had a few moments of lapse in concentration after the break.

Lisandro Martinez – 7.5

Started off well to help United gain control. Unfortunately, the 26-year-old was forced off in the second half with a knee injury.

Luke Shaw – 7.0

Spent little time in the final third than usual but was solid to keep Ben Johnson quiet.

Kobbie Mainoo – 7.5

Won three ground duels and completed 25 out of 30 attempted passes. Withdrawn early in the second half to receive a much-deserved standing ovation from the home crowd for another tidy display and *that* winner against Wolves.

Casemiro – 6.5

Brilliant interception to recover the possession which ultimately led to Hojlund’s goal. Played some eye-catching passes. Still, the Brazilian looked out of place and pace in several transitions.

Bruno Fernandes – 8.0

Brilliantly carried out his creative duties and registered assists in back-to-back league games for the first time this term.

Alejandro Garnacho – 8.5

The teenager looked so assured in everything he did, including when celebrating his first goal with Hojlund and Mainoo.

Marcus Rashford – 6.5

Lively in the first half and could’ve got on the scoresheet with luck on his side.

Rasmus Hojlund – 8.0

Got his goal tally into the double figures with a ferocious strike from his weak foot. Confidence is a wonderful thing for a striker!


Scott McTominay – 7.5

Even when he’s not starting, he finds a way to add to his goal contribution tally. The Scot assisted Garnacho’s second.

Raphael Varane – 7.0

Helped his side comfortably see out the game after replacing Martinez.

Victor Lindelof – N/A

Antony – N/A
