Player Ratings: Norwich City 0-1 Manchester United

by Ben Topliss

David de Gea 7 Was there to save Cameron Jerome’s header during the opening exchanges

Antonio Valencia 6 Tried his best to get United going down the right hand side

Chris Smalling 6 Almost scored from a header in the first half

Marcos Rojo 6 Dealt with Norwich easily enough after some early wobbles

Matteo Darmian 5 Made a minimal impact due to the ankle injury he picked up very early on

Michael Carrick 5 Some neat passing… but that was just about it. Much more should be expected of a United midfielder

Ander Herrera 5 Failed to establish control in the middle of the park

Juan Mata 6 Anonymous in the first half but popped up to score a crucial goal for United in the second

Jesse Lingard 5 Lack of incisiveness was glaring

Memphis Depay 5 Underwhelming. Some poor touches and his finishing was off

Wayne Rooney 6 Looked isolated up top for the majority of the game but he showed good presence of mind to tee up Mata for the winner


Cameron Borthwick-Jackson 6 Worked hard but no real quality

Morgan Schneiderlin 6 Missed a presentable opportunity in the dying minutes

Timothy Fosu-Mensah N/A
