Manchester United player ratings vs Burnley: Pogba outstanding as Reds top Premier League

David de Gea

Untroubled on a night his defence stood stall. Wasn’t forced into a save of note on his return despite late scramble. 6

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Uneasy at times in first-half but grew into the game and played some purposeful passes. 7

Eric Bailly

Justified selection ahead of Victor Lindelof again with fine showing. Nullified threat of Wood and Barnes and his pace complements Maguire. 8

Harry Maguire

So unfortunate to have his headed goal ruled out after contact with Pieters. Crucially avoided punishment so is available for Anfield showdown on Sunday. Marshalled the defence superbly. 8

Luke Shaw

Fortunate to avoid red card for follow through on Gudmundsson but not otherwise rarely tested. Did enough to retain his spot against Liverpool on Sunday and was brave late on.  6

Nemanja Matic

Stood firm at base of midfield and played key role in United sustaining attacks. Controlled display. 8

Paul Pogba

Predictably not as potent in withdrawn role in axis with Matic in first-half. Cut loose after the break as he inspired the assertion of dominance. His technique for the winner was delightful. 9

Bruno Fernandes

Started quietly and booked after showing discontent at VAR decisions. Brighter in second-half as he was afforded more space in between the lines. 6

Anthony Martial

Forced fine save from Nick Pope and spurned other chance in first-half. Looked more dangerous providing for Cavani from the left but hesitant with chance to kill the game late on. Possible hamstring injury is a concern. 6

Marcus Rashford

Not on the same wave length as teammates and less comfortable on the right. Not as effective as other forwards and predictably substituted. 5

Edinson Cavani

Found some great positions in the area without decisive touch. Not at ruthless best on his return after three-game ban. 6

Substitutes

Mason Greenwood

Brought on for ineffective Rashford. 5

Scott McTominay
