Player Ratings: Leicester City 5-3 Manchester United – Di Maria tops a bad bunch

by Sam Peoples

David de Gea 5 – When a goalkeeper concedes five goals, it’s a bad day. However, De Gea wasn’t particularly at fault or any of the goals.

Rafael 4 – Not to blame for the penalty that turned the game around, it was a shocking decision by Mark Clattenburg. However, overall, part of a United defence which was terrible on the day.

Jonny Evans 5 – Ever since Evans went off, United looked vulnerable. Will be a blow if he is out injured.

Tyler Blackett 4 – For the most part, Blackett was United’s most composed defender but he lost his marbles at the end after being caught behind the ball to give away a penalty and get himself suspended needlessly.

Marcos Rojo 3 – As good as his debut was, this performance was very poor. Consistently United’s weak link on the day.

Daley Blind 5.5 – Average day for Daley. Could have done more to protect his defence and also could have added more to the attack.

Ander Herrera 6 – Two goals in two games from a central midfielder? United haven’t seen that sort of return for years. Positive going forward but not in defence.

Angel di Maria 7 – The Argentine’s goal will be in contention for Goal of the Season and overall, he was always a threat to Leicester’s defence.

Wayne Rooney 5.5 – Hustled, bustled but overall didn’t do enough in the No.10 role to warrant a start ahead of Juan Mata.

Radamel Falcao 6 – Improved performance from the Colombian who is getting better with each game.

Robin van Persie 5 – Scored a goal but that was the high point of his game. Still not involved enough.
