David de Gea 7 – Couldn’t do much about goals from Casemiro and Isco but produced clever stops to prevent Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale.
Antonio Valencia 7 – Produced a series on imposing runs early on and defended sensibly. Rarely pulled out of position by a brilliant Real Madrid attacking arsenal.
Victor Lindelof 6 – One of his better games on the ball, moving the ball out of defence nicely. Positioning was once again a point of concern – especially for Casemiro’s goal.
Chris Smalling 7 – Occasionally clumsy but always dedicated to the cause. Put his head, feet and pretty much anything on the line and largely kept Benzema at bay.
Matteo Darmian 6.5 – Another disciplined performance fro the Italian. Found himself in a few awkward positions chasing after Isco but dealt with Bale when the Welshman moved to the right hand side.
Nemanja Matic 7.5 – The best player in a red shirt by a long way: utterly solid, effortlessly composed positionally and on the ball. Set up Lukaku’s goal.
Ander Herrera 6 – Ran hard and made a number of smart interceptions but couldn’t have his usual effect at the centre of proceedings.
Paul Pogba 6.5 – Battled relentlessly against a brilliant Madrid midfield, producing flicks and turns at will, but could have had a more direct influence going forward.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan 6.5 – Showed early signs of promise down the centre, linking up nicely with Lukaku on a several occasions. Lacked the support he needed up the pitch as Madrid dominated.
Jesse Lingard 5 – Couldn’t really get into the game. Saw little on the ball and picked up a yellow card for one too many fouls on Isco.
Romelu Lukaku 6.5 – Worked tirelessly at the masthead of attack. Held up the ball nicely. Wasted a brilliant chance after Madrid’s second but atoned with a poacher’s finish soon after.
Marcus Rashford 7 – Came on and had an immediate influence, injecting some much needed bite into United’s attack with some powerful runs past Dani Carvajal. Wasted a brilliant one on one chance with Keylor Navas, who saved smartly.
