GK) David De Gea, 7

Solid again from the Spaniard, but had less to do than he usually does.

CB) Chris Smalling, 6

Dealt well with the old fashioned approach that the Toon took.

CB) Marcos Rojo, 7

Fast becoming the best centre-back at Old Trafford, and continued that progression here.

CB) Jonny Evans, 3

Didn’t play especially poorly, but the spit on Papiss Cisse means that he is likely to get a ban in the next few days.

RWB) Antonio Valencia, 5

Was unable to whip the crosses in for Marouane Fellaini when the Belgian was on the pitch.

LWB) Ashley Young, 8

Doing well enough to keep Luke Shaw out of the team on merit, also scored the winner.
