Manchester United got back to winning ways after they secured a 2-0 triumph over Swansea City in the fourth round of the League Cup. The Red Devils scored a goal in either half – courtesy of Jesse Lingard, who had a fine game in the number 10 position.
Here are our ratings for the game….
Sergio Romero: The Argentine replacing David de Gea had a sound performance in goal. Romero tipped Tammy Abraham’s effort over the bar in the second period before making a point-blank save off Leroy Fer to secure his first clean sheet of the campaign – 7/10
Matteo Darmian: A disciplined performance from the Italian, who kept shape and position throughout the game. Provided a superb assist for match-winner Lingard in the second period – 7/10
Victor Lindelof: The Swede had the chance to redeem himself following an individual error in the defeat to Huddersfield. However, he looked nervous through the game and did not provide much of an assurance alongside Chris Smalling – 5/10
Chris Smalling: Captain on the night, the Englishman bossed the backline by taking care of the Swans threat. Undoubtedly the best performer in the central defensive three. – 7/10
Axel Tuanzebe: Looked nervous during the first period, where he nearly awarded a penalty. However, as the game went on, he produced a much-assured performance whilst playing his part in the build-up to Lingard’s second goal – 7/10
Daley Blind: The Netherlands international has provided a series of average performances for United this term, and Tuesday night’s game was no exception as he struggled to provide the perfect outlet – 6/10
Scott McTominay: The youngster came in for Nemanja Matic and did a credible job alongside Ander Herrera. Had the opportunity to score his maiden competitive goal for United – 7/10
Ander Herrera: The Spaniard produced his best performance in a few games after he stood to his task of breaking up play. Mourinho would undoubtedly want a similar focus against Tottenham – 7/10
Jesse Lingard: The man of the match…. Lingard produced a sublime performance with an impressive brace. Much better than the Huddersfield game, where he struggled to find a way through – 8/10
Anthony Martial: The Frenchman did not have much of an influence in the opposition box, but he looked to pose a threat to the Swans defence whenever offered the opportunity – 6.5/10
Marcus Rashford: Another excellent performance from the young Englishman. While Lingard earned all the plaudits for his performance, Rashford quietly did his business with an assist. Showed intent to attack with the ball -7/10
Nemanja Matic, Romelu Lukaku, Luke Shaw
