David De GeaHis selection would have been controversial if United had not won so generously. Excellent save to deny Edin Visca but guilty of the goal. 6

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Marcus Rashford was only the right winger in name but Wan-Bissaka did not offer additional support. He didn’t need it, mind you. 6

Victor Lindelof

Avoided any drama for 45 serene minutes before giving way to Axel Tuanzebe to protect his back problem. 6

Harry Maguire

A stress-free night for the United captain who is showing something like his best form after a tough period earlier in the season. 6

Alex Such

His corner led to the first goal although Telles’ positioning upset Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Michael Carrick. Looked at ease again. seven

Donny van de Beek

A more steely performance from the Dutchman in a deeper role in which he looked more than comfortable alongside Fred. seven

Fred

The selection of the Brazilian has reinforced its importance and United are simply a better team with Fred as one of the two midfielders. seven

Marcus Rashford

A threat almost from the start and could only be disappointed not to have scored in open play. Not chained starting from the right. 8

Bruno Fernandes

His thunderous half volley is perhaps his best goal for United and Fernandes was selfless in letting Rashford take the penalty. Well rested. 8

Anthony Martial

Moved to welcome Cavani and had Rafael da Silva on a toast. The debate will rage over whether he is better on the left. seven

Edinson Cavani

His skillful touches got his teammates to play quickly and United took advantage of a flawless striker at the top. 8

Subs

Axel Tuanzebe

Booked and misses Paris Saint-Germain’s game next week. 5

Mason Greenwood

Greedy and his decision making annoyed some teammates but helped Daniel James. 6

Daniel James

Didn’t offer much threat until he scored in extra time. 6

Brandon Williams

First appearance in almost two months. 5

Nemanja Matic

I have come to consolidate things. 5

Director

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Limited the number of changes with a very heavy team which took Basaksehir to the cleaners and won the match with half to lose. 8
