Manchester United Player Rankings: Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial great against Sheffield United – Samuel Luckhurst

David De Gea

He had almost nothing to do, but he was noticeably stronger than at Tottenham. He kept his sixth sheet clean in the last eight. 6 6

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

He was present if not threatening in the attacks until Anthony Martial finished his pierced cross for further assistance. 7 7

Victor Lindelof

Much more comfortable against the two Sheffield United strikers than on the reverse. Rarely concerned. 7 7

Harry maguire

Read the game well against your old team and made your voice heard by shooting Luke Shaw for a stunned moment. 7 7

Luke Shaw

Purpose, despite receiving a wake-up call from Maguire. I advanced enough times to push Marcus Rashford’s box. 6 6

Nemanja Matic

A resounding success upon his return to the lineup. Matic put things together in the title role and was adventurous with his passing. 8

Paul Pogba

Collected from where he left it in Tottenham. Pogba was athletic and creative in United’s smoother midfield. 8

Bruno Fernandes

Demanding from teammates in the first minute, Fernandes was overshadowed by Pogba this time around, but he was still a creative presence. 7 7

Mason Greenwood

He deserved to start and started brilliantly, but he wasn’t as involved in United’s attacks as Martial and Rashford. He had goal attempts. 6 6

Marcus Rashford

He found Martial with a low cross for the first but wasted good opportunities. Erratic again after poor performance at Tottenham but created third. 6 6

Anthony Martial

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


Odion Ighalo

Another impressive cameo but it should have scored. 6 6

Juan kill

Another running around. 6 6

Andreas Pereira

I have minutes 6 6

Daniel James

He stretched out his legs. 6 6

Scott McTominay

More minutes 6 6
