United player ratings v Chelsea

Marcus Rashford’s sensational free-kick secured United a 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea, and a passage to the Carabao Cup quarter-finals.

Alex Seymour covered the game for the United End and posted his player ratings after a superb away win in London.

Sergio Romero – 6
Not really tested but coped well with a couple of dangerous crosses. Could do very little about the goal.

Victor Lindelöf – 6
Organised and cool in defence. Came off with an injury in the second half.

Harry Maguire – 6
Was beaten to the header by Michy Batshuayi who went on to score Chelsea’s goal. Looked like he might be carrying an injury towards the end of the game.

Marcos Rojo -6
Small signs that he’s improving. Can never doubt his commitment

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 7
Another solid performance and as ever, really good at getting the better of his direct opponent.

Scott McTominay – 8
Good in possession, read the play well, and covered when necessary. He was everywhere. Really starting to mature.

Fred – 6
A positive contribution from Fred who appears to be improving.

Brandon Williams – 7
Another solid performance for the first team. Not heavily involved in the crucial attacking moments, but showed his worth in attacking and defensive areas.

Jesse Lingard – 4
What’s happened to Jesse? Looks like a passenger.

Daniel James – 7
Won another penalty. Exciting when moving forwards. Always looking to create when he’s in possession.

Marcus Rashford – 7
On an otherwise quiet night he took his penalty chance and then scored an absolute worldy of a free-kick! That’ll take some beating not just this season but throughout his career.

Substitutes

Anthony Martial (Lindelöf ) – 6
Took the game to Chelsea as soon as he was introduced. Had a couple of attempts on the break.

Andreas Pereira (Lingard) – 5
Confident in possession, but unable to create many chances.

Ashley Young (Rashford) – 6
Supported Maguire when he looked injured and helped keep the defence calm in the closing stages.
