Man Utd players rated and slated after Leeds demolition job

Manchester United smashed six goals past Leeds en route to a dominant victory over their rivals at Old Trafford.

Scott McTominay scored twice in the opening three minutes to give the hosts the dream start, while Bruno Fernandes and Victor Lindelof netted to extend the lead to four goals after 37 minutes.

Liam Cooper pulled one back for Leeds before half-time but United were relentless on their charge to victory.

Daniel James scored the Red Devils' fifth – with McTominay registering the assist – and Fernandes ensured Leeds were hit for six with a penalty after Anthony Martial was brought down in the area.

Stuart Dallas made the scoreline slightly more respectable for Leeds with a 73rd-minute strike, as Raphinha picked up his second assist of the evening.

Here are the player ratings from Old Trafford.

Man Utd

De Gea 8

Twice denied Raphinia, the second a stunning reflex stop. But unable to keep out Cooper's header.

Wan-Bissaka 7

Beaten in the air by Bamford midway through the first-half, although the header went over.

Lindelof 7

A bit casual early on, but improved thereafter and scored United's fourth prior to half-time.

Maguire 7

As vocal as ever, read the game well and was assured bringing the ball out from the back.

Shaw 7

His bursting run through the middle in the first-half was indicative of United's industry and intent. Replaced by Telles.

McTominay 9 MOTM

Two goals and two stunning finishes inside three minutes to set United on their way. Set up up James for the fifth.

Fred 8

His lung-busting run through the middle made possible United's third goal, scored by Fernandes.

James 7

Played a part in United's third, with a deft flick early in the build-up. Deserved his goal, UNIted's fifth.

Fernandes 8

Provided assist for McTominay's early opener. Got on the scoresheet himself with United's third and sixth.

Rashford 8

Caused panic in the Leeds defence whenever he was on the ball, with his quick feet and mind.

Martial 8

Two assists and a constant threat up front with his clever movement, pace and link-up play.

Subs:

Telles 6 (Shaw, 60)

Cavani 5 (Rashford, 71)

Van de Beek 5 (Fernandes, 71)

Who is your pick Manchester United's man of the match? Have your say here.

Leeds

Meslier 6

A miserable afternoon picking the ball out of his net. Allowed the fifth to go through his legs.

Dallas 6

Lucky to escape a booking for a late challenge on Rashford. Fine strike late on to make it 6-2.

Ayling 5

A tough afternoon. Caught out on more than one occasion by the pace and trickery of United's attackers.

Cooper 6

Gave Leeds hope of a comeback with a headed goal and made a couple of important defensive interventions in over-run Leeds defence.

Alioski 5

Afternoon of struggle for the Leeds left-back with too much on his plate from United's formidable forwards.

Phillips 5

Had his work cut out in midfield, with McTominay and Fred outclassing him. Subbed at the break.

Klich 5

Strangely subdued. Failed to pick up McTominay's run for United's second goal. Subbed at the break.

Raphinha 6

His delivery from a corner yielded Cooper's headed goal, while he also provided the assist for Dallas's strike.

Rodrigo 6

Gave the ball away cheaply for United's third. Fine cross for Raphinha, who was denied by De Gea.

Harrison 5

His threat was nullified by Wan-Bissaka. Swapped flanks but found Shaw equally difficult to beat.

Bamford 5

Shot wide of the target when the game was still within range for Leeds, with the score 2-0.

Subs:

Struijk 5 (Phillips, 46)

Shackleton 5 (Klich 46)

Davis (Cooper, 72)
