Manchester United progressed to the quarter finals of the FA Cup with a 2-0 victory over Premier League strugglers Huddersfield. Here’s how the players rated:
Jonas Lossl – 5
Nothing to do apart from pick the ball out of his net twice.
Jonas Hadergjonaj – 8
Great display from the right-back, causing constant problems, especially in the first half.
Zanka – 6
Beaten for pace and strength by Lukaku for both his goals.
Christopher Schindler – 5
Turned easily by Lukaku for the opener, and didn’t do much better for his second.
Terence Kongolo – 6
Did well down the left, but not as effective as Hadergjonaj on the opposite flank.
Phillip Billing – 7
An energetic and industrious display in the middle of the park, dominating the Man Utd midfield three.
Danny Williams – 7
Alongside Billing in midfielder, his energy levels helped the Terriers’ keep up constant pressure on United.
Colin Quaner – 7
Threatening down the right, combining well with Hadergjonaj, and causing problems for Luke Shaw.
Tom Ince – 5
Busy, but couldn’t display his qualities.
Rajiv van la Parra – 7
Another hard working performer, and kept the Man Utd back line busy, especially Ashley Young.
Steve Mounie – 6
A handful for Lindelof and Smalling throughout, with his energy levels and pressing,
Malone 5, Smith 5, Sabiri N/A
Sergio Romero – 6
A few nervy moments, but stopped everything in his direction…somehow.
Ashley Young – 4
Didn’t have a great game and only got forward on rare occasions.
Victor Lindelof – 4
Struggled to cope at the back with some heavy Huddersfield pressure. Seemed to panic in possession.
Chris Smalling – 5
Marginally better than at Newcastle last week, but that wouldn’t have been hard. Did relatively well in the air, but couldn’t find a teammate with his passing.
Luke Shaw – 5
Probably the best of a bad bunch at the back. Got forward well, especially in the first half.
Nemanja Matic – 4
Didn’t get forward enough. Out passed, out fought and out worked by Huddersfield’s energy.
Michael Carrick – 6
The only one who seemed to be able to pass a ball at times as United gave the ball away time and time again.
Scott McTominay – 4
Worked hard but surrendered possession far too often.
Juan Mata – 6
Perfectly-weighted pass to set Lukaku free for United’s opener – then showed great composure for what looked like a second before it was ruled out by VAR.
Alexis Sanchez – 5
He was as quiet as he’s been in a United shirt in the first half – and left Shaw exposed on too many occasions. But that through-ball for Lukaku’s second was class
Romelu Lukaku – 8
Very little service, especially in the first half. But when he was given the ball, showed his continued recent improvement and composure to net two goals with two fine finishes.
Martial 5, Lingard 5, Bailly N/A
