On-form Anthony Martial was the standout performer for United and that meant that Seamus Coleman was given a torrid afternoon at right-back.

There are mitigating factors; the Irishman was not offered a great deal of protection from Theo Walcott and faced an opponent who can give any full-back a torrid time.
