Wes Foderingham 8: Excellent performance from the keeper today. End-to-end game and he had to be alert. Produced a great reaction stop to tip over Dom Hyam's header in the first half and then produced a superb double save to keep out Harry Pickering and then Brereton Diaz early in the second half.

Anel Ahmedhodzic 7: Steady from the Bosnian. Did little wrong on the right of the back three.

John Egan 7: Had no choice but to try and play offside for the second goal, stepping out but Szmodics was onside. Gallagher and Brereton Diaz were a real handful and caused United's defenders problems but Egan won his fair share of the battle.

Jack Robinson 7: Penalised for the penalty. Tried to get the block in on Sam Gallagher's effort but the ball hit his outstretched hand and VAR ruled penalty. Was his usual combative self and solid.

George Baldock 7: Defended well, cleared under pressure in the first half and also had a sight of goal after the break but hit the side netting.

Tommy Doyle 9: Kept his place after impressing at Sunderland and another good display. Workmanlike, good in possession and never stopped moving or showing for the ball and then capped off another cracking performance with a stunning winner.

Sander Berge 8: Some good feet in the first half to leave his marker standing and United managed to get him on the ball a lot, carrying the fight, keeping it simple and another good display from the Norwegian and was instrumental in the third, into the area and then finding Doyle.

James McAtee 7: Had two golden chances to find the net, denied in the first half and then clean through with just the keeper to beat moments before Rovers took the lead but his effort was saved. Had to score that. However, never hid and kept driving United forward.

Max Lowe 7: Slow start but worked his way into the game and brought United level with a deflected equaliser. However, was sloppy for Blackburn's second, giving the ball away cheaply and Rovers pounced. Made up for it with his effort to win the ball in the build-up for McBurnie's second.

Iliman Ndiaye 9: Blackburn will be glad they don't have to face him again this season. Another typical Ndiaye performance, was everywhere trying to bring his magic and create something. His effort in the third goal typified the performance. Immense.

Oli McBurnie 7: Looking to link up with McAtee and Ndiaye and lead the attack. Some good hold up play at times and his goal was typical McBurnie. He had not been his usual threat up to that point but he kept working, and then showed really good skill to turn his man and then fire home across the keeper and into the far corner.
