David De Gea 8/10

Didn’t have much to do but was very reliable when called upon. Made some very good saves during a spell of pressure from the hosts.

Aaron Wan-Bisakka 8.5/10

A positive performance from the young full-back. Played Greenwood in to score and was a presence on United’s right.

Victor Lindelof 7.5/10

A decent performance from the Swede. Tracked Brighton’s forwards well and looked very composed throughout.

Harry Maguire 8/10

Strong performance overall from the skipper. Organized the defence well and was good with his distribution.

Luke Shaw 7.5/10

Had a good game defensively and showed excellent movement and link-up play with Marcus Rashford on United’s left flank.

Nemanja Matic 9/10

Another excellent performance from the Serb. He provided a perfect outlet from defence into midfield and played a brilliant ball to find Greenwood in the build-up to United’s third goal.

Paul Pogba 8/10

The latest in a string of steady performances from the Frenchman. Was a presence in midfield and set up Bruno Fernandes to score.

Bruno Fernandes 9.5/10

An excellent physical performance from the Portuguese fan favourite. Concerns about his physical condition were immediately dismissed as he put in a fantastic performance, scoring two brilliant goals.

Marcus Rashford 7/10

Didn’t score but did some excellent work on United’s left linking up with Shaw. The wait for his 20th goal of the season continues.

Anthony Martial 5.5/10

A stark contrast to his last Premier League outing. Didn’t pose a threat to Brighton’s defence and failed to register a single shot.

Mason Greenwood 9/10

His best performance in a United shirt till date. Took his goal brilliantly and picked out Fernandes with an inch-perfect cross for United’s third. An exciting prospect and he seems to be making that third spot in United’s front three his own.


Brandon Williams 7/10

Scott McTominay 6.5/10

Odion Ighalo 6.5/10

Daniel James 6.5/10

Andreas Pereira 5/10
