Manchester United player ratings: Luke Shaw one of many to shine as Reds score nine vs Southampton

David de Gea

Furious as he thought United had relinquished clean sheet before nonsensical VAR reprieve. Good save denied James Ward-Prowse from midfielder’s specialist position in first-half. 6

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Fantastic run and finish opened the floodgates early on. Incredible recovery tackle denied Ings despite offside flag. 8

Harry Maguire

Another clean sheet as Saints consolation was controversially revoked. Led well on the front foot. 8

Victor Lindelof

Operated in Southampton’s half for virtually the whole game. Second clean sheet in three days. 8

Luke Shaw

Stunning deliveries for Wan-Bissaka and Cavani as he effectively operated as an extra left-winger. Outstanding attacking intent from a man in the form of his life for United right now and earned a welcome rest. 9

Scott McTominay

Fifth goal of the season struck as sweetly as they come. Fortunate to escape serious injury after Jankewitz’s horror tackle but he enjoyed his freedom thereafter. 9


Helped United move ball quickly as they immediately capitalised on man-advantage. Filled in at left-back with no qualms after the break and played number of excellent passes. 8

Bruno Fernandes

Afforded far more space than at the Emirates and a clear threat from distance. Glorious through ball for Martial allowed Frenchman to crash home United’s fifth and took penalty well. 8

Marcus Rashford

Took 15th goal of the season well and forced Bednarek to bundle in United’s third. Good hour’s work after a quiet few weeks. 7

Mason Greenwood

Superb assist for Rashford’s goal after timing run to perfection and unfortunate not to have a goal of his own. 7

Edinson Cavani

Dispatched Luke Shaw’s perfect cross with predictable expertise. Solskjaer’s luxury to take him off at half-time means he will almost certainly lead the line against Everton. 8


Anthony Martial

Ended eight-game goal drought in fine style by smashing past Mccarthy after bringing down Fernandes’ pass. Won the penalty for United’s seventh and thrashed home the eighth. Fine return albeit in favourable circumstances. 9

Donny van de Beek

Will be disappointed not to have started but was fairly effective from the bench. 6

Daniel James

Rare run out highlight United’s dominance in the game and got his goal. 7
