Sergio Romero – Made some excellent saves, further proving his case as the best back-up goalkeeper in world football. 8/10

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – What a joy it is watching this lad play. The timing in the tackle and the willingness to get forward. Picked up a lovely assist for the Greenwood goal. 8/10

Eric Bailly – Started sharply, but predictably, he was struggling with an injury as the first half drew to a close. 5/10

Victor Lindelof – Calm and composed on the ball. Made a sublime run forward to carve out an opening for Rashford. He’s improving all the time. 7/10

Marcos Rojo – He’s not a left-back and positionally that was all-too-obvious at times. 5/10

Scott McTominay – Solid. Mopped up well, won the ball high up the field and kept it simple. 6/10

Paul Pogba – Just sublime. His range of passing and execution of the pass is unreal. He was unlucky not to score. 8/10

Juan Mata – Led by example and kept things ticking over. Was on the receiving end of a hefty Kalvin Phillips tackle. 6/10

Mason Greenwood – Boy wonder scores his first goal for United against Leeds. He capped off a wonderfully worked move while looking a constant threat throughout. 8/10

Daniel James – Unfortunate to hit the post after a gut-busting run. He looked sharp once again. 7/10

Marcus Rashford – The first-half star. Scored a beauty as he sat down a Leeds defender in the process, while remaining a constant threat throughout. 9/10

Subs:

Joel Pereira – Wasn’t really tested but commanded his penalty box well. 6/10

Ashley Young – Pretty quiet throughout as the majority of the action was down the other flank. 6/10

Chris Smalling –

Phil Jones – Looked pretty good once again. Scored a powerful header to make it 3-0. 7/10

Diogo Dalot – Nice to see him play as a right-back. Will provide excellent competition for Wan-Bissaka. 5/10

Nemanja Matic – Kept things ticking over but I cannot help but feel the starting role is now McTominay’s. 5/10

Andreas Pereira – Excellent. His passing was superb, the energy was great and he won the ball back on several occasions. 7/10

Tahith Chong – Linked up well with Angel Gomes, made a couple of Leeds defenders look silly on the way to winning a penalty. 8/10

Angel Gomes – The talent this young man has is ridiculous. If he could do some work in the weight room, we’ll have an absolute star on our hands. 7/10

Jesse Lingard – Looked sharp. His movement was great as per usual. 5/10

Anthony Martial – Tucked away the penalty coolly. Looked lively. I think we could see more of Martial through the middle this season. 6/10

James Garner – Looked sharp once again. He’s an excellent tackler. Not enough time to mark.
