Man Utd player ratings vs Watford: Bruno Fernandes shines but midfielder gets a 4

Manchester United have climbed to fifth in the Premier League table after a convincing win against Watford.

Bruno Fernandes won and converted a penalty before the half-time break while Anthony Martial doubled the lead with a superb solo effort in the second half. 

Mason Greenwood put the icing on the cake with a fierce finish in the 75th minute after good build-up play with Fernandes. 

Express Sport brings you the player ratings from Old Trafford on a brilliant day for United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 

David De Gea – 6

Good reactions to deny Doucore on half hour mark. Little to do otherwise.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 6

Poor effort with goal gaping early and given the runaroujd a couple of times by Deulofeu

Harry Maguire – 6

Shaky start but got more solid as the game progressed. Missed decent chance on 69 minutes

Victor Lindelof – 5

Positionally suspect at times but no lack of commitment, crunching challenege on Doucore on 70 minutes

Luke Shaw – 6

Mixed bag defensively affording Watford bags of space wide but there when it mattered to clear lines

Fred – 6

Tidy enough in middle and broke the gain line on occasions but not an attacking threat

Nemanja Matic – 4

Lack of pace exposed but couple of early mistakes fortunately not punished by Watford

Bruno Fernandes – 8

Struggled to get on ball early but grew into game as it progressed, cocky finish for penalty

Anthony Martial – 7

Largely anonymous until audacious piece of skill netted United’s second

Daniel James – 7

Probably United’s most persistent threat involved in all their good forward movement

Mason Greenwood – 6

Forced Foster into a couple of blocks either side of half time and sublime finish for United’s third
