De Gea – It could have been a lot worse today if the young Spaniard wasn’t on full-alert. 8

Jones – Probably the worst I’ve seen him play in a Red shirt. Couldn’t pick up a United player with a pass to save his life. Woeful. 3

Ferdinand – Guilty for the first goal. A player of his experience shouldn’t be beaten that easily by his marker. Decent overall. 6

Vidic – A good performance over the 90 minutes but nearly cost us a second with a clumsy back-pass. Spared blushes by De Gea. 6

Evra – Offered much width going forward but disappeared completely as the game played out. 7

Giggs – I hate to say this but Ryan finally looked his age today as he failed to keep up with play. Shouldn’t have started as he’d have offered plenty late on. 3

Cleverley – Brought energy to midfield but lacked any creativity with the ball. Offered no penetration with the ball. 5

Carrick – Usually reliable, he lost the ball over and over again. Failed to get going, not just today, but so far this season. 5

Young – There have been farts which have offered more of a threat to opposition defenders than Ashley Young did today. Quite simply pathetic. The only reason he didn’t get a 1 is because he did us all a favour and came off. 2

Welbeck – Fast footwork and snappy passing, he was the most likely to get us a goal today. 7

Van Persie – Wasn’t to be his day. Never really looked like scoring but his frustration at the lack of supply was very evident. 5


Valencia – Anything was going to be an improvement on Jones today. Added some balance to our attacks. 6

Nani – If he’d have walked on to the pitch and had a heart-attack, he’d still have scored a better rating than Ashley Young. 5

Hernandez – N/A

    Nani on 10% is still better than Young.

    I have commented before on United’s very poor and non creative midfield. SAF in a bid to build an English national team at Old Trafford bought mediocre English players at exorbitant prices and gave them more playing time than others who are far better. David Moyes has followed suit. Why keep Anderson with a lot of energy and drive and Kagawa with creativity on the bench? Where is Fabio? If DM wants to succeed at Old Trafford, he should realize now that Young, Carrick, Cleverly, Jones, Welbeck and Ferdinand are at best average players. He cannot deliver the trophies with such.
