Ratings & Highlights : Man Utd 4-1 Leicester

Manchester United overwhelmed Leicester City with a strong first half performance that decided this game at Old Trafford. Wayne Rooney was dropped in what was the pre-game headline, and that was not all that was unfamiliar about United as they scored three goals from set pieces.

Below are ratings and highlights from the victory. You can consider the marks for the forward players to be a .5 extra for their part in the ten minute spell which blew the Foxes away.

De Gea : 6 – Couldn’t be blamed for goal

Valencia : 7 – Surely made the right back slot his own now

Bailly : 8 – Dealt with Leicester’s forwards with class and ease

Smalling : 7 – Faultless

Blind : 8 – Dead-ball play was outstanding and crucial to United’s win

Pogba : *8 – His best performance yet for the club and this could easily have been a nine, but he took his foot off the gas after being heavily influential in the deciding period of the game

Herrera : 7 – Steady and disciplined, allowing Pogba the space to shine

Mata : 8 – With pressure on the Spaniard, he delivered in the early stages, scoring the goal which tipped the scales in United’s favour

Lingard : 7 – Did okay as the others around him took the limelight

Rashford : 8 – Another red-letter day for the local lad who is now a must-pick for the front line

Ibrahimovic : 7 – Desperate to score a goal but his presence in United’s front line is always threatening, and his link up play never less than intelligent

Subs : Carrick, Rooney, Young (not enough time to rate)
