Here are the marks out of 10 for each player in what turned out to be a very comfortable win for United.


Manchester United

David de Gea - 6 - Hardly had anything to do, distribution was good.

Antonio Valencia - 6 - Played further forward due to Herrera marking Hazard. Cool head on the ball.

Eric Bailly - 7 - Did well to keep Costa out and always looked mobile enough to cut off Hazard when he cut inside.

Marcos Rojo - 8 - Shackled Diego Costa well as the battle threatened to boil over.

Matteo Darmian - 7 - Solid display at left back from the Italian who is taking his chance.

Ander Herrera - 8 - Had Hazard in his back pocket, plus grabbed a goal and an assist.

Paul Pogba - 7 - Much more disciplined display from Pogba who made a great tackle in the first half on Hazard.

Maroaune Fellaini - 6 - Did a great defensive job but didn’t get chance to do much in attack. Steady.

Ashley Young - 6 - Did plenty of dirty work and was solid defensively. Stopped Chelsea’s full backs playing.

Jesse Lingard - 6 - Perfect foil for Rashford as he chased Chelsea’s defense down and was always on hand to link up.

Marcus Rashford - 9 - Splendid display as he finished superbly for the first, then ran Chelsea’s defense ragged.

Subs
Michael Carrick on for Jesse Lingard - 6
Zlatan Ibrahimovic on for Marcus Rashford - 5
Fosu-Mensah on for Ashley Young - 5


Chelsea

Asmir Begovic - 5 - Positioning could have been better on the first goal but not much he could do about the second.

Kurt Zouma - 5 - Shaky on the ball and looked like a man thrust into the starting lineup at the last minute due to Alonso’s injury.

David Luiz - 5 - Let Rashford go for United’s first goal and was out-muscled by the youngster time and time again. Tough afternoon.

Gary Cahill - 6 - Tried to help Chelsea’s backline together but it didn’t work.

Victor Moses - 4 - Hauled off in the second half after Conte switched him from the left flank to the right.

N’Golo Kante - 6 - Kept battling hard but had little impact on the game with Paul Pogba matching up well in the battle.

Nemanja Matic - 5 - Subbed out for a more attacking option. A decent display but not much more.

Cesar Azpilicueta - 6 - Kept trying to push forward whenever he could from wing-back but looks much more comfortable at center back.

Pedro - 4 - Wasteful in the final third and couldn’t get on the end of a chance at the back post.

Eden Hazard - 5 - So often the go-to guy for Conte but Herrera shackled him and his flashes of quality were all too rare.

Diego Costa - 5 - Lost the physical battle to Rojo and never had a sniff at goal. Shackled.

Subs
Cesc Fabregas on for Victor Moses - 5
Willian on for Nemanja Matic- 5
Ruben Loftus-Cheek on for Kurt Zouma - 5
