Scott McTominay: 6

Looked energetic and calm but was often run out by the opponents.

Had a good game and scored a goal only to be ruled off side by VAR. Looked solid at the right and connected well with Lukaku and Sanchez besides setting the Belgian up for the opener.

Alexis Sanchez: 7

Made an assist for Lukaku in the 2nd half and looked good after the break after a quiet 45 minutes.

Romelu Lukaku: 9

Scored two good goals and showed his attributes of hold-up play beside the work and energy.


Anthony Martial: 5

Looked to bring some energy down the left and made some decent impressions going forward.

Jesse Lingard: 5

Tried hard to break into the Huddersfield box but did not have much luck.

Eric Bailly: 3

Came on at the final seconds of the injury time.
