Player Ratings: Swansea City 2-1 Manchester United

by Ben Topliss

Sergio Romero 4 Awful distribution throughout and a glaring error for Swansea’s winner

Matteo Darmian 6 Couldn’t get himself up the pitch but was solid defensively

Chris Smalling 7 Decent performance again but will be hugely disappointed to not get across and cover Gomis for the second goal

Daley Blind 6 Struggled with the opposition’s physicality all game and seemed to lose the positioning that has been so impressive this season

Sergio Romero 5

Luke Shaw 8 United’s best player by a country mile, a constant outlet on the left and an assist for Mata’s goal

Bastian Schweinsteiger 7 Dictated play in the first half but seemed to wilt away as the pressure grew

Morgan Schneiderlin 6 Picked up a needless booking for a poor challenge and never got in his passing rhythm

Juan Mata 7 Gave United the lead early in the second half but should have done so earlier

Ander Herrera 7 Good energy and some nice interplay with the forward players when he found himself in the final third

Memphis Depay 5 Couldn’t beat his man and his final ball never seemed to find the target. Was barely a threat

Wayne Rooney 4 Seemed almost reluctant to shoot, gave the ball away for Swansea’s first goal and gave United nothing up front

Wayne Rooney 45

Substitutes

Michael Carrick 6 Never got into the game like he did against Newcastle so couldn’t provide the forward drive the Reds needed

Ashley Young 7 Brought some impetus and penetration when he came on, taking on his full-back and trying to get the ball in the box

Marouane Fellaini 6 Came on as a target man but barely won the ball in the final third, more due to a lack of service
