Leicester City 0-3 Manchester United: Player ratings

Leicester City 0-3 Manchester United: Player ratings

David de Gea 6 – Didn’t have to make any monumental contributions but dealt comfortably with whatever came his way.

Antonio Valencia 7 – Completely marshalled the right hand side of defence all game and provided a sumptuous assist for Manchester United’s second.

Eric Bailly 7 – A wonderfully commanding, unruffled performance from the Ivorian on his return from international duty. Dealt magnificently with Jamie Vardy’s pace going forward.

Chris Smalling 6 – Recovered from a shaky start to produce a far more composed display to what supporters saw during recent games against Hull City.

Marcos Rojo 6 – Made a number of stay passes early on but grew into the game as Jose Mourinho’s men started to dominate. Came off at half time.

Ander Herrera 7 – Almost cost Man United an early goal with an under-hit back-pass but recovered well and ultimately took control of proceedings in midfield.

Paul Pogba 6 – Struggled to muscle his way into the game during the early stages but clearly benefitted from Mourinho’s decision to swap from a 4-4-2 to a 4-2-3-1 system after 20 minutes.

Juan Mata 6 – Atoned for a substandard first half with a wonderfully taken goal minutes after the break. Made an array of smart passes and turns as United entered cruise control.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan 7 – Ripped Leicester’s back four open with a sumptuous run in the first half and, in turn, ripped open the entire encounter after being placed at No.10.

Marcus Rashford 7 – Provided a constant threat on the left hand side all afternoon, bombing forward with reckless abandon and working hard defensively. A proper winger’s performance.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic 7 – Bulled Leicester’s back four all game, producing a number of smart flicks and turns. Powered home his 20th goal of the season in the first half.

Substitutes  

Daley Blind 6 – Came on for the second half and occasionally struggled to combat Leicester’s pace on the left hand side. Managed to ease into the game and produced a number of smart passes.

Marouane Fellaini
