Other than a couple of comfortable catches, seeing one shot hit the post and picking the ball out of the net after Fernandes’ penalty, the Frenchman had little else to do. 6
Defended superbly and topped it off with an assist for Son and then his own clinically finished goal for Spurs’ fifth. One of his best performances in a Spurs shirt. 9
Marshalled the backline well on the day and no need for a toilet trip which is always a bonus. 8
Clumsily brought down Martial after just 25 seconds to gift Fernandes the chance to score from the spot, but he recovered well and little else got past him. 7
The answer to the left-back question. He’s going to be a Premier League star. Pace to burn and can defend as well as he gets forward. 8
A real leader out there on the Old Trafford pitch and brought everything Mourinho hoped he would. Mopped up everything behind the rampant Ndombele and got in on the act with a brilliant ball which split United’s defence apart for Aurier to score. 9
Dominant along with Hojbjerg in the centre of the pitch and United’s attacks often struggled to get going, particularly after the went a man down. 8
In the right place to equalised for Spurs four minutes with a deflected shot. Involved in the visitors’ third goal as well with a little flick and was involved in everything Tottenham did. Confidence through the roof with his turns and flicks and the growing fitness to back it up. Came off after 70 minutes for Alli to a round of applause from the Spurs subs and coaching staff. 9
Played his part in the early equaliser by battling for Maguire’s poor header back and helping force the ball into Ndombele’s path. Played a terrific ball for Son which the South Korean ran through with but lost control at the vital moment. Then he was involved in Martial’s sending off with an over the top reaction but he was slapped. Got a yellow himself for his own push beforehand, which ensured he came off at half-time in case United attempted to even things up. 8
Back in the team and back on the scoresheet, running on to Kane’s quick free-kick before deftly flicking the ball over the diving De Gea. He then set up Kane for the third goal and nutmegged the keeper for his own second. Set up Son for another big chance before coming off with 15 minutes to go. What a return and he’s hitting all new heights now. 10
Clever quick free-kick to put Son away to register another assist in their remarkable partnership and then fired home himself in the first half with a clinical finish. Had opportunities in the second half, including a shot on the run that De Gea saved. Finally added his second with a powerful penalty. Who said he wouldn’t score under Mourinho? 10
