David de Gea

Conceded his 21st successive penalty and positioning for Edin Dzeko’s goal was suspect. Had little goalmouth action otherwise. 6

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Boggled the mind why he did not get back into position to plug the gap Henrikh Mkhitaryan found for Roma’s second. Not troubled in the second-half. 6

Victor Lindelof

Drawn out of United’s backline and Roma capitalised to go 2-1 ahead. Isolated a few times but kept Dzeko reasonably quiet before and after the goal. 6

Harry Maguire

Failed to cover the near post for Lorenzo Pellegrini’s cross for Edin Dzeko. Did well to deny Dzeko at 2-2. 6

Luke Shaw

Caught on his heels when Dzeko got in ahead of him but was a key cog in United’s attacks down the left. 7

Scott McTominay

Retaining McTominay and Fred was logical but McTominay’s subdued spell continued. Gave United a better platform in the second-half. 6

Fred

Lost the ball for the move that resulted in Roma’s penalty and caught ball watching when Mkhitaryan split the defence. 6

Marcus Rashford

Loitered with intent and looked to spin off the removed Leonardo Spinazzola. Never truly got into any rhythm, though. 5

Bruno Fernandes

Back to his best. Finished fabulously to put United ahead and teed up Edinson Cavani cannily. Scored a penalty and crossed for Paul Pogba. 9

Paul Pogba

Influential for the opener but continues to be a danger to his own side inside his own area. Recovered to dominate the game and score. 8

Edinson Cavani

Set up Fernandes with a perfect pass but squandered a one-on-one and too greedy on the rebound. Atoned with an excellent equaliser and put United ahead. 9

Subs

Mason Greenwood

Freshened up the attack with a goal. 7

Nemanja Matic

Protected three-goal advantage. 6

Juan Mata

Late cameo. N/A

Manager

Vindicated by going with Cavani over Greenwood and made the right substitution at the right time as United tried to cut loose. 9
