De Gea – Saved well on two occasions and desperately unlucky to finally concede after a string of clean sheets. 7

Jones – Left for dead on a few occasions at the back but offered even less when attacking. Wasteful crossing and an even worse touch. 3

– Often found covering for three positions, he did his best to minimise the damage from his right hand side as well as try and help the attackers out with some runs up the field. 7

Rio – Insured the loss didn’t turn into a battering by making multiple interceptions and important challenges throughout the game. 7 MOTM

– Average in every sense of the word. He didn’t have a bad game but didn’t really offer anything going forward either. 5

Valencia – Poor. He did himself no favours with his unwillingness to take in his opponent and to cross the ball in first time. 4

– Completely overran in midfield, he was unable to break up play as per usual due to him covering for his partner. 5

Giggs – Probably his worst performance all season which says a lot. Careless, sloppy, lazy – you name it. Incredible he was allowed to finish the 90 minutes. 2

Young – Never really got going but even then, he hardly had any time to make an impression before being substituted. 5

– As poor as he was, and he was really poor, it still is mind-blowing as to why he was taken off. Only player on the pitch that looks like they can always get you a goal. 4

Hernandez – Quiet and lethargic but unlucky to be on the end of as much criticism as he was. The boy received no service what so ever from his midfield. 4

Subs –

Cleverley – Produced one half-decent chance in 45 minutes of play. Expected much more from him as our ‘creative outlet’. 5

Welbeck – Played up top on his own and worked hard to close down the ball and rush the defenders. Tested the keeper. 6

Nani – Typical performance that we’ve grown to love from Nani. Beat two men then lose the ball with a 4 yard pass. 3
