Player Ratings: Manchester United 1-0 West Ham

Manchester United 1-0 West Ham (AET) | FA Cup 5th Round | Player Ratings

Dean Henderson: 6

Strong performance in goal, nothing to really challenge the Henderson but the English keeper did get involved with some accurate distribution.

Defence

Aaron Wan-Bissaka: 6

Wan-Bissaka didn’t play the full 120 minutes for what seemed to be a slight injury. The right-back lacked in his offensive freedom of recent games but defensively he remained strong with some crucial blocks and recoveries.

Victor Lindelöf: 6

The Swede narrowly missed out on the chance to put United ahead due to Fabianski heroics. Lindelöf did find himself progressing play with some direct runs from the back.

Harry Maguire: 6

The Man of the Match according to the BBC but really his game wasn’t extraordinary, a solid performance following his weekend blues against Everton.

Alex Telles: 7

Competition at left-back is heating up. Telles was fantastic in the 90 minutes that he played. He was positive, sharp and involved in everything positive that United mustered in the 90 minutes.

Midfield

Nemanja Matic: 5

The game passed Matic by in all honesty. There was an effort in his passing but didn’t affect the game from deep.

Fred: 4

Fred saw a lot of the ball playing as the quarterback in a similar way to Pogba but failed to put together a string of passes. The difference in quality between the Brazilian and West Ham’s Declan Rice was there for all to see.

Donny van de Beek: 3

A disappointing performance and one of a player devoid of any confidence. Van de Beek seemed insistent on playing the ball simply and not keeping possession to really cause problems for the opposition.

Attack

Mason Greenwood: 7

Another performance where Greenwood showed that he’s more than a finisher. From switching play to leaving Mark Noble in the mud, the forward displayed another complete performance.

Anthony Martial: 7

Anthony Martial is always going to be judged on goals but he worked extremely hard for the team with his interplay and holding up of the ball. However the forward did miss a host of chances.

Marcus Rashford: 5

Rashford assisted the winner and deserves great plaudits for his deft touch for McTominay to finish off but overall he wasn’t great. His decision making was off and his finishing much better.

Substitutes

Scott McTominay: 7

The match-winner. Scott McTominay has really developed his game and turned into an admirable goal scorer for United. Three goals in three games says it all.

Bruno Fernandes: 6

Luke Shaw: 7

Edinson Cavani: 6
