A 10 for Scott McTominay, Bruno Fernandes 8; Patrick Bamford 6, Illan Meslier 4: Manchester United v Leeds United ratings

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's stars thrash Leeds 6-2 to bolster Premier League title hopes

Scott McTominay and Bruno Fernandes scored twice each as Manchester United crushed Leeds United 6-2 to move within five points of Premier League leaders Liverpool.

McTominay scored both his goals within the opening three minutes as Leeds failed to track his runs from midfield. Fernandes soon made it three off a loose ball in the penalty area, and Victor Lindelof scored a fourth when Leeds lost track of him at a corner.

Daniel James and Fernandes — from the penalty spot — added to the rout in the second half. Liam Cooper and Stuart Dallas’ goals for Leeds were little compensation.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team moved up to third with the win, with a game in hand on second-place Leicester and leaders Liverpool.
