Player Ratings: Crystal Palace 1-2 Manchester United

by Ben Topliss

David de Gea 7 Could he have done better with Jason Puncheon’s effort? But he made an excellent stop from Dwight Gayle in extra-time

Antonio Valencia 6 United needed him to be more marauding down the right hand side

Chris Smalling 1 Idiotic second yellow card saw him sent off in extra-time. Abysmal. Lingard rescued him big time

Daley Blind 6 Had a few nervy moments. Is a bit of composure too much to ask for?

Marcos Rojo 6 Should have offered more going forward

Michael Carrick 6 Too many sideways and backwards passes. Needed more penetration

Wayne Rooney 8 His sensational work led to United’s equaliser. Took on a number of Palace defenders before putting the ball into Mata

Juan Mata 7 Was quiet for large parts of the game but popped up with a massive equaliser

Marouane Fellaini 6 For a big lad he’s weak in the air. Should have done better with a few headers. And he should have put away a chance early in the second half. Instead, he hit the bar

Anthony Martial 7 You always felt like something would happen when he got on the ball

Marcus Rashford 7 The confidence is flowing through him and it shows. Excellent movement off the ball. But his afternoon was cut short when he was taken off in the second half due to injury


Matteo Darmian 6 Filled in well enough when Rojo picked up an injury

Ashley Young 6 Didn’t work up top but got on the ball more when played out wide

Jesse Lingard 10 Scored a massive, huge, gargantuan winner in added time. Outstanding. Absolutely outstanding. Give that man a knighthood. A statue outside Old Trafford? He deserves it. Legend
