Fernandes 9, Sancho 8: player ratings from Manchester United 2-0 Everton

Manchester United have made it back-to-back wins in the Premier League after Brentford and Everton were both dispatched at Old Trafford, with Erik ten Hag’s men comfortably beating the latter by two goals on Saturday.

After being dragged into the fight for the Champions League places through a string of poor results, United are now back to third in the Premier League and six points clear of fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

Scott McTominay opened the scoring in the first half after United spurned a flurry of chances and it looked like it could be a nervy afternoon at Old Trafford.

A mistake from Everton defender Seamus Coleman allowed United to kill the game off, however, as Anthony Martial scored the second goal minutes after coming on.

Man United Player Ratings

David de Gea – 8
He was rarely called into action but stopped one or two shots and almost registered an assist when he put Antony through on goal with a fantastic 80-yard pass.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 9
Back in the side after missing the last two games and what a return, what a second half of the season. Looked to be completely out of the picture halfway through the campaign but is now Ten Hag’s first-choice right-back.

Harry Maguire – 8
A rare fixture on Ten Hag’s teamsheet but he did well.

Lisandro Martinez – 9
One of United’s most consistent players and today was another stunning display.

Tyrell Malacia – 8
Given the nod after Luke Shaw sustained a minor hamstring injury earlier this week. Has proven himself as a more than capable backup.

Scott McTominay – 9
Endured a challenging afternoon at Newcastle last weekend but he responded to that with a great outing against Brentford and that form continued today. Top drawer.

Marcel Sabitzer – 8
Played in a slightly more advanced role and his runs into space were great.

Bruno Fernandes – 9
In a quite surprising tactical tweak, Fernandes dropped into the position Sabitzer was expected to play. Fernandes controlled the game masterfully and once again proved why he’s the heartbeat of this team.

Antony – 8
United’s greatest danger threat in the first half. Will be kicking himself for not scoring any of the chances he had.

Jadon Sancho – 8
Involved in the important opening goal and looks to be hitting some decent form now.

Marcus Rashford – 8
Like Antony, he will be kicking himself for not finding the net but it was another good performance as he assisted Martial’s goals. Ten Hag will be praying his injury isn’t a bad one ahead of a gruelling end to the season.
