Manchester United produced yet another second-half comeback to beat West Ham 3-1 on Saturday evening.

Here’s how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side rated at the London Stadium

Dean Henderson 7

Could do little about the goal he conceded and played part in equaliser with terrific long ball - even if it may have gone out of play. Fine showing on rare league start, if a little unsure under high ball.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka 6

Overrun at times but crucial trademark recovery denied Bowen chance to double the lead on stroke of interval.

Harry Maguire 6

Invited pressure with loose play out from the back in first-half, but helped lift tempo with surges into midfield and solid enough defensively.

Victor Lindelof 6

Marshalled Haller well but like his partner was lax in possession.

Alex Telles 5

Terrorised by the terrific Bowen and switched off to lose Soucek at corner for the opener. Made some amends with cross for Greenwood goal.

Scott McTominay 4

Played a simple pass straight out of play on five minutes which set the tone for United’s sloppy display. Hardly improved.

Paul Pogba 7

Part of a midfield that was overrun in first half, but did good defensive work in his own box and showed all his quality with a stunning equaliser.

Donny van de Beek 4

Tasked with shouldering the creative burden in Fernandes’ absence but completely nullified by Rice. Dragged at half-time.

Anthony Martial 4

In a woeful run of form, but did at least force Fabianski into only meaningful save of a tepid first half. Could take little credit for second-half turnaround.

Mason Greenwood 6

Virtually anonymous in the first-half and fortunate not to be replaced when Rashford sent on. Justified manager’s decision with better showing after the break, capped by magnificent touch and finish for winner.

Edinson Cavani 5

The pick of United’s forward players early on, dropped in and linked play nicely, but faded. Still unlucky to be the one sacrificed at half-time.


Marcus Rashford (Cavani 46’) 8 | Star man

Dragged United back into it after half-time introduction with moments of individual skill and drive from the left. Hit the post before sealing win with cool finish.

Bruno Fernandes (Van de Beek 46’) 7

Planned night off never looked likely to materialise but changed the game when he came on, with a major hand in first two goals. United are a different team with him in it.

Juan Mata (Martial 62’) 6

Not as influential as other substitutes but played one of the passes of the season to set up Rashford.

Unused: Grant, Williams, Tuanzebe, Matic.
