Manchester United player ratings: Arsenal (H)
Manchester United confirmed their place in the top four thanks to a late win against Arsenal at Old Trafford.
Champions League football is now a certainty for the Red Devils ahead of next season after goals from Marouane Fellaini and Paul Pogba secured a vital win.
The returning Henrikh Mkhitaryan also netted on the day but Fellaini was brought on in the second half to give Jose Mourinho’s side a key three points.
United were dominant throughout the game and just about deserved their victory as they now look to secure a 2nd place finish in the Premier League with three games remaining.
Their attention now turns to a trip to Brighton in the Premier League on Friday night as they look to nail down their position as runners-up and build on it ahead of next season.
Here is how we rated the United players following the late win against the Gunners.
David de Gea - 8
Couldn’t have done too much with the goal but made a couple of key saves.
Antonio Valencia - 7
Defended well throughout the game and often got down the wing with great effect.
Chris Smalling - 8
Is continuing to have a fine season and put in another solid performance at the heart of the United defence.
Victor Lindelof - 6
Was an assured performer throughout the game and looked solid on the day.
Ashley Young - 8
Another fine showing from the player and even got the assist for the crucial second goal.
Nemanja Matic - 7
Ran the midfield well throughout and looked solid on the ball.
Ander Herrera - 5
Not his best game as he failed to do much in the middle of the park.
Paul Pogba - 7
A fine showing from the Frenchman in the midfield and he got the crucial first goal in the game.
Jesse Lingard - 6
Wasn’t quite at his best and was taken off just past the hour mark in the game.
Alexis Sanchez - 6
Found it tough to make much of a difference against his previous club on a quiet afternoon.
Romelu Lukaku - 8
A strong performance from the forward until he was forced off with an injury in the second half.
Marcus Rashford – 7: Was a real livewire when he was introduced, causing Arsenal all sorts of problems.
Anthony Martial – 8: Was putting in great work down the United left when his side were chasing the winner.
Marouane Fellaini – 8: Made a brilliant impact when he came on, scoring the game’s crucial winning goal.
