Man United player ratings: Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial great

David de Gea

Had next to nothing to do but was noticeably louder than at Tottenham. Kept his sixth clean sheet in the last eight. 6

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Was present if unthreatening in attacks until his drilled cross was finished by Anthony Martial for another assist. 7

Victor Lindelof

Much more comfortable against Sheffield United’s front two than he was in the reverse fixture. Rarely troubled. 7

Harry Maguire

Read the game well against his former side and made himself heard by rollocking Luke Shaw for a moment of doziness. 7

Luke Shaw

Purposeful, despite getting a wake-up call from Maguire. Got forward enough times to push Marcus Rashford infield. 6

Nemanja Matic

A roaring success on his return to the line-up. Matic tied things together in the holding role and was adventurous with his passing. 8

Paul Pogba

Picked up from where he left off at Tottenham. Pogba was athletic and creative in a more fluid United midfield. 8

Bruno Fernandes

Demanding of teammates in the first minute, Fernandes was overshadowed by Pogba on this occasion but still a creative presence. 7

Mason Greenwood

Deserved to start and began brightly but was not as involved in the United attacks as Martial and Rashford. Had attempts at goal. 6

Marcus Rashford

Found Martial with a low cross for the first but squandered good chances. Erratic again after a poor performance at Tottenham but created the third. 6

Anthony Martial

Scored two instinctive goals in a classic poacher’s performance before he scored a classy third for a hat-trick. 9


Odion Ighalo

Another impressive cameo but should have scored. 6

Juan Mata

Another run around. 6

Andreas Pereira

Got minutes. 6

Daniel James

Stretched his legs. 6

Scott McTominay

More minutes. 6
