The Red Devils' opener came through a set-piece when Bruno Fernandes' corner corner found Harry Maguire, whose headed it to Rasmus Hojlund.
And many Man United supporters are loving the way the former skipper has been playing lately after enduring a barrage of criticism and abuse at the start of the season.
T00lsh3d (All reactions via RedCafe): "I'd love him to get Player of the Season. It'd be due reward for coming through the absolute hammering he had over summer and playing so well."
DJ_21: "Maguire keeps going from strength to strength. Takes a lot for someone to take all the criticism and come back stronger. Was viral in the win. Won a lot of headers in both boxes."
SAFMUTD: "Gotta give it to him. He seemed done at the club after the captaincy was stripped out but he's been really solid. I think it actually helped him to be out of focus a little bit."
roonster09: "Taking away captaincy and making him a rotational player has helped him very much, he looks like a player who was rated highly and not the poor one we had over last 1-2 seasons."
17Larsson: "Well done Harry, he's got his limitations but he's really done well the last few games he's played. Fair play to him, you can see he really wants to win."
Ludens the Red: "Fair play to him, he's turned it around. You'd argue he's more important than Varane ATM. I think the biggest thing that's changed is he's no longer defending likes he's trying to avoid making a mistake."
