David de Gea: 6/10
Should have done better for Ashley Westwood’s free kick goal. Looked a bit shaky but made a decent stop to deny Benteke.
Gave away the free kick leading to Westwood’s goal and, as usual, was booked. Bombed up the right flank at will but always looked a little suspect defensively. Replaced at half time by Carrick.
Alexander Buttner: 5
Put in a shift at left back with plenty of willing running but struggled to cope with Marc Albrighton and seems unsure of the offside rule. United fans need to hope Patrice Evra faces Bayern instead.
Phil Jones: 5
Not his most impressive display. The England man looked a little clumsy at times, but it’s hard to blame him when he’s shifted from position to position so frequently. Started at centre half but switched to right back at half time.
Nemanja Vidic: 7
The captain was United’s best defender on the day, but still looks a shadow of his former self.
