David de Gea 6 – Had virtually nothing to do aside from picking the ball out of his own net in the first half.
Antonio Valencia 6 – Endured a rocky start against the left flank combination of Erik Pieters and Marco Arnautovic but quickly asserted himself in characteristically powerful fashion as the game went on. Lacked a notable level of final product.
Chris Smalling 7 – A physically imposing influence at the back all afternoon, successfully combating the aerial threat posed by Peter Crouch.
Phil Jones 6 – Looked comfortable at the back alongside Smalling, making several important interceptions and headers. Struggled to impose himself early on.
Daley Blind 6 – Displayed his usual levels of calmness and poise on the left hand side but couldn’t offer much going forward.
Marouane Fellaini 6 – Provided plenty of physicality and control in midfield but struggled to impose himself going forward. Subbed off early in the second half.
Ander Herrera 7 – A true warrior’s performance: interceptions, crunching tackles, headers, tactical fouls and precise passes all game.
Paul Pogba 6 – Displayed signs of his usual bombastic self after recovering from a nervy opening ten minutes.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan 7 – A simply effervescent force on the left hand side, constantly finding space in behind Stoke’s midfield and creating innumerable problems going forward.
Juan Mata 5 – Had something of a shocker all afternoon: missed an open goal and deflected a Pieters cross into his own net. Never really managed to make amends before being hooked off for Rooney
Zlatan Ibrahimovic 6 – Held up the ball well and linked up nicely with teammates but didn’t display his usual potency in front of goal.
Marcus Rashford 7 – Immediately added urgency and power going forward after coming on. Never stopped running at Stoke’s back four.
Wayne Rooney 7 – Beat the goal-scoring record in style as he helped Mourinho claim one point from the clash with a fabulous free-kick in the closing minutes of the game.
