Manchester United brought back the gap at the top of the table to 11 points after their 2-1 win against West Brom at the Hawthorns. The win though was anything but comfortable.
Here are the Manchester United player ratings:
David de Gea: 6.5/10
Did not have much to do throughout the game and was helpless during the West Brom goal.
Phil Jones: 7/10
Stuck to his defensive job pretty well.
Ashley Young: 7.5/10
Played both as a left-back and a right-back during the game. Also, put in the cross through which Lukaku scored the first goal of the match.
Antonio Valencia: 7/10
Put in a good shift but had to be substituted in the second half with an injury.
Chris Smalling: 7/10
No major talking points. Stuck to his job.
Jesse Lingard: 7.5/10
Scored United’s second goal of the night through a deflection.
Marcus Rashford: 7/10
Was eventful down the flank and made some good runs. Other than that did not have anything special to offer.
Juan Mata: 7.5/10
Had the license to roam around the opponents penalty box and made good use of it by linking to both Lingard and Rashford.
Ander Herrera: 5/10
Was another below average performance from the Spaniard. No creativity whatsoever.
Nemanja Matic: 7.5/10
Typical Matic performance.
Romelu Lukaku: 7/10
Scored the first goal of the game but other than that was invisible as usual.
Marcos Rojo: 6.5/10
Came in the second half in place of the injured Valencia and played as a left-back. No major talking points.
Anthony Martial: N/A
Scott McTominay: N/A
