Player Ratings:

You might also like

David de Gea: 6 - Had little to do. Made a good stop at the end to help United claim victory and showed some good distribution at times.

Ashley Young: 8 - A menace going forward. Was given a lot of freedom down the right flank and made Swansea pay by putting in some quality crosses. Assisted Martial's opener.

Phil Jones: 6 - Was substituted at half-time after picking up an injury. Had very little to do in the first-half as Swansea sat very deep.

Chris Smalling: 6 - A quiet game. Did some things well but was also a little sloppy at times. Form has dipped after a brilliant 12 months. Could have done better to defend the Swansea goal.

Daley Blind: 5 - Not as effective on his flank as Young was on the right side. Had trouble with Swansea's pace in the second-half and was a little lost defensively at times.

Morgan Schneiderlin: 6.5 - Showed good energy by pressing the ball relentlessly. Was a little poor in possession considering how defensive Swansea were early. Decent but could have done more.

Bastian Schweinsteiger: 6 - Was relatively anonymous as the game drifted around him. Did not really stamp his authority on the match. Decent, but still not at the level he should be playing at.

Ander Herrera: 6 - Showed some decent touches but it was a pretty quiet match for Herrera.

Juan Mata: 6.5 - Was better than he has been lately but still lacking that final bit of quality. Tested the Swansea 'keeper often but had little power behind his efforts.

Anthony Martial: 8 - A goal and an assist to top off a very good performance. Did lose the ball at times but is a constant threat with his positive running. Still the bright spark in a dour United team.

Wayne Rooney: 7 - Still looked slow at times but a classy finish which shows he can still score goals when he has the confidence. Has been better lately after a poor start to the season.

Substitutes:

Matteo Darmian: 5.5 - Was shifted around the entire defence after he came onto the pitch. Was a little bit slow to try and block the cross for the Swansea goal.

Michael Carrick: N/A - Was given no time to impose himself on the game

Paddy McNair: 5 - Did not have much to do in his brief appearance.
