Manchester United entertained Chelsea at Old Trafford earlier tonight as they looked to earn a good result at home in the Premier League. The Red Devils made a quick start to the game and got their noses ahead in the sixth minute thanks to Casemiro’s goal. Anthony Martial doubled his team’s advantage just before the half-time break.

Bruno Fernandes killed the game off from the penalty spot in the 73rd minute before Marcus Rashford added another goal just five minutes later. Joao Felix scored a late consolation goal for the Blues but the contest finished with Man United earning a comfortable 4-1 win at the Theatre of Dreams.

Let’s take a look at how each Manchester United player fared during the match against the Blues.

GK: David de Gea – 7/10

The Spanish talent made some important saves at the back but will be disappointed after conceding a late goal.

RB: Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 7/10

He did his fair share of defending but offered very little going forward.

CB: Raphael Varane – 6.5/10

Varane made a couple of crucial clearances at the back but failed to keep a clean sheet.

CB: Victor Lindelof – 7/10

He got stuck in with a few crunching tackles and gave a good account of himself on the defensive third of the pitch.
