How Albion players rated against Manchester United.

Maty Ryan 6

Conceded three but actually had very little to do. Confident with the ball at his feet.

Ben White 6

Found Rashford too hot for the second United goal but also did some good work going forward.

Lewis Dunk 6

An unfortunate afternoon on the first two United goals. Generally did okay but has not been quite as commanding as we normally expect so far in these very early days.

Adam Webster 7

Continued his assured start to the season on the left of the three and went close to a goal with a header.

Tariq Lamptey 7

It says so much for his sensational start to the season that this actually felt like quite a quiet match by his standards. He was particularly bright in the first half, capped by his run to win another penalty.

Adam Lallana 7

His longest appearance yet for the club and effective too in central midfield. Links things together so well with his quick feet and might be better suited to this role in this team.

The Argus:

Steven Alzate 8

Good first touch and ease on the ball make him ideal for this team and he is enjoying playing in his favoured midfield role. Lovely foot work and reverse pass to set up one of Trossard’s near misses.

Solly March 8

One of his best performances for the club in many respects - and certainly most exciting. Found so much room, even after Bailly went on as an extra defender, and could easily have scored before the one which went in.

Leandro Trossard 7

Such a threat again as he continued his bright start to the season. Should have converted the third shot which hit the woodwork and the one he prodded at De Gea and the fact he didn't is reflected in a mark which might seem a little low. He is such a livewire and, with more luck and accuracy with his finishing, would be attracting rave reviews around the Prem. 

Aaron Connolly 7

Caused United problems when he got in behind them and his afternoon will be remembered for the penalty which was cancelled. Might easily have forced another spot kick when Maguire seemed to drag him down.

Neal Maupay 7

Surprised everyone, including De Gea, with his penalty style. Got well involved in build-up play but put an arm up when, these days, he shouldn’t have right at the death and it cost dear.


Alireza Jahanbakhsh

Looked quite bright on the right and played a precise ball for one of Trossard’s near misses as well as the March goal.

Pascal Gross

Some nice stuff in the midfield role.
