Manchester United v West Ham United Player Ratings



Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United got their Premier League campaign off to the perfect start with a convincing 4-0 win over West Ham United at Old Trafford today. Lets see how the players fared …


Manchester United 


De Gea 7

One decent save in first half, quiet afternoon for the Spaniard.


Valencia 7

United’s captain was solid and dependable as always.


Bailly 7

Continued last seasons solid form, dominant.


Jones 7

Composed at the back, will be hoping he can stay fit for a sustained period in what is surely a break-or-break season for the defender.


Blind 7

Such an intelligent footballer, passed well and carried out his defensive duties adequately.


Matic 9 ( MOTM ) 

A Beast. What a performance from the big Serb, brought such authority to United’s midfield play. A bad weekend for Antonio Conte must have got even worse when he saw how seamlessly Matic fitted into The Red’s team.


Pogba 7

Some sublime touches and brilliant passes mixed with some poor decision-making at times. Took goal brilliantly though.


Mata 7

Intelligent movement caused West Ham a lot of problems in the first-half, a yard of pace short of being world-class.


Mkhitaryan 7

Flashes of brilliance, another for which this season could be career defining.


Rashford 8

Struggled initially, but came alive after assist for opener, ran Zabaleta ragged in second-period.


Lukaku 8

Took both his goals well, areas to improve, but still the perfect start to his Old Trafford career.


Fellaini 6

Kept possession well when brought on, exactly as instructed, probably why managers keep picking him.


Lingard N/A

No Impact.


Martial 7

Looked hungry in brief cameo, composed finish for third goal.


West Ham United


Hart 6

Not a happy return to Manchester for England’s number one.


Zabaleta 6

Had his hands full against the youth of Rashford and Martial, stuck to his task well however.


Reid 6

Tough day at the office for West Ham’s defensive leader.


Ogbonna 6

Like so many of the Wets Ham side, seemed to turn off a notch after United’s first goal.


Masuaku 4

Caught on camera laughing and joking in the build up to United’s all-important third goal, muppet.


Noble 7

Worked hard and tried to get his side going, lacks the dynamism of a younger player but experience will be useful for the Hammers throughout the season.


Obiang 5

Not his best display in Claret and Blue, gave the ball away in lead up to United’s opener.


Ayew 5

Anonymous, needs to do more.


Fernandes 5

Chasing shadows for most of the afternoon, will learn from the experience.


Arnautovic 6

Set piece delivery really poor, has plenty of talent though and will have better days.


Hernández 7

Never got the chance that the tireless effort he put in deserved.




Cresswell 6

A instant upgrade on Masuaku.


Rice 7

One of the few positives for Slaven Bilic, looked really composed.


Sakho 5

Either wasn’t fully fit for just doesn’t care, was pedestrian up-front after coming on the hour-mark.
