David de Gea
Got the finest of touches to tip Karlan Grant’s deflected effort wide. Made one of his classic toe saves from Conor Townsend seconds before United won a penalty. 8
Non-existent in attack too often again despite the reticent approach from West Brom. Just does not do enough going forward. 5
Did not appear to be hampered by his back problem and helped United to a clean sheet. 6
The only one who acted like a proper United player from start to finish and started the breakaway Anthony Martial should have finished. 6
Took some time to adjust to the demands and there were some loose moments and his speculative shooting was awry. 6
Suffered the ignominy of a nutmeg but did little wrong. The trouble was United did not needed two steely midfielders against the 18th-placed side. 5
Tidy enough with the ball and tried to get United on the attack but rarely played a memorable pass. 6
Too passive too often in the first-half but his cross was handled and earned United a penalty. Made way for Cavani on the hour. 5
Set up Martial for an easy chance but became so frustrated he withdrew into a deeper role. Lucky not to have the penalty conceded stand and lucky he got to retake his saved spotkick. 6
Rusty after coming back from injury and wasted a great opportunity to all but kill the game in the second-half. 4
Had an early header saved before he squandered a gilt-edged chance soon after. Was going through the motions at times. 5

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
Overestimated West Brom by starting Matic with Fred and should have made a change at half-time. Cavani for Mata was an adventurous move. 6
