Much better from the reds today so let’s go through the player ratings
David De Gea – 8
Brilliant from our keeper today. Kept plenty of shots out and without him as usual the score would have been much different.
Antonio Valencia – 8
A typical Valencia performance. Defended brilliantly and was involved plenty going forward. Just a shame he still can’t cross a ball.
Chris Smalling – 6
He did okay, but he did make a few mistakes that could have been worse, had our other defenders not bail him out.
Phil Jones – 8
Made plenty of tackles and interceptions and rushed back to defend when needed. Was reliable as ever.
Luke Shaw – 8
He had a brilliant game. Got forward and made so many good runs and was very lively. Also did well defensively. Just needs to keep this up.
Nemanja Matic – 8
Defended brilliantly and was there when needed to keep Bournemouth from progressing too far too often. He was good on the ball as well.
Scott McTominay – 8
For only his second start he sure did play it like it was his 50th. Did everything right and nothing wrong. Very Darren Fletcher like performance from his very compatriot.
Juan Mata – 7
Was tidy on the ball and got involved plenty. Picked the perfect pockets of space to exploit. Definitely looks better on the right.
Jesse Lingard – 6
Wasn’t great from Jesse today but he did put his usual shift in and played some tidy passes
Tony Martial – 6
He had an okay game but he missed a sitter and I can’t forget that.
Romelu Lukaku – 7
Put himself about and was a nuisance for the defenders. Build up play was brilliant but no one was making runs to give him options.
Marcus Rashford – 7
Was very lively and had one great shot saved from the woodwork
Ander Herrera – 7
Put himself about and was the best he’s played in a long time
Ashley Young – 5
Wasn’t on long enough to rate.
