Here are the player ratings for Manchester United against Crystal Palace:
GK) David de Gea – 7.0
Difficult to rate as he barely had a single save to make. Dealt with every ball into the box perfectly and didn’t put a foot wrong.
RB) Antonio Valencia – 6.0
Was strong on the ball and tireless running the channels, but his final ball was atrocious.
CB) Patrick McNair – 6.5
Despite a mix-up with Daley Blind which almost allowed Fraser Campbell to score, the youngster was solid in defence.
CB) Daley Blind – 6.5
Did a fine job as a makeshift centre-back, but it’s clear he is more comfortable in the midfield.
LB) Luke Shaw – 7.0
His pace caused the Palace defence some real problems at times, and was rarely caught out defensively.
