|ANCHESTER UNITED RATINGS: David de Gea - 6. Super close range save with both hands from Raphinha when the ball spun on to the post. Was ready when Bamford was clean through early on. Got finger tips to Cooper’s header for Leeds' first and also to Dallas for Leeds’ superb second. EPA|
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's stars thrash Leeds 6-2 to bolster Premier League title hopes
Scott McTominay and Bruno Fernandes scored twice each as Manchester United crushed Leeds United 6-2 to move within five points of Premier League leaders Liverpool.
|Aaron Wan-Bissaka - 7. Looked a risk at the far post when Leeds attacked. Won headers at corners but still has not found the levels he was at last season. Getty|
|Victor Lindelof - 7. First goal of the season as Calvin Phillips failed to mark the Swede to make it 4-0. EPA|
|Harry Maguire - 7. Won’t be happy to concede two at home, but strong at the back and hard to beat as Leeds attacked in waves and won six corners in each half. Got forward himself too and had a late header saved. EPA|
|Luke Shaw - 7. Was ill for a few days before the game but started well, though a poor ball allowed the offside Bamford to score. Took corner which led to Lindelof’s goal. Came off after an hour. EPA|
|Fred - 8. Drove forward with ball to set up third. Superb although could have done better for Leeds' goal. Nearly scored as Leeds tired and he nicked the ball and beat a man. Shot when Cavani was free. Fine game. PA|
|Scott McTominay - 10. Full of energy. Drilled ball into bottom corner after driving forward after a minute. Then did it again a minute later. He used to be a striker but played more like an eight than a six as he continued to stride forward into space. The main man in setting up James for United’s fifth. Man of the match but soured by him leaving pitch holding his groin. AFP|
|Bruno Fernandes - 8. Teed up McTominay’s first then smashed ball in for United’s third after 20 minutes. Busy throughout and scored the sixth, another penalty, for his side’s sixth as Leeds were devastated. Remains the most creative force. Reuters|
|Marcus Rashford - 7. Lively again and his pace troubled the Leeds defence. Not the masterclass of Sheffield on Thursday night, but, like his team, he’s in form. AFP|
|Edinson Cavani - 6. On for Rashford. Nearly scored his first goal at Old Trafford after yet another attack but shot at the goalkeeper. EPA|
