Some pretty weak performances from the Red Devils this evening…
- 01 De Gea – 6
Shaky moments in the first half.
- 12 Smalling – 6
Got forward regularly, but lacks the ability on the ball to create anything worthwhile in final third.
- 03 Evra – 5
Didn’t offer much going forward, although made no mistakes at the back.
- 31 Fellaini – 3
Especially, especially dire. The Belgian midfielder looked completely off the pace, and anything but the £27m midfielder United thought they were buying in the summer.
- 05 Ferdinand – 6
- 15 Vidic – 6
Like his partner, didn’t have much to do, and can’t be blamed for what went on in front of him.
- 25 Antonio Valencia – 6
Arguably United’s brightest spark in the first-half, but tired in the second as he toiled down the right flank.
- 11 Giggs – 5
Merely weeks off his 40th birthday, Giggs showed his age in Spain this evening.
- 26 Kagawa – 7 ( Jones 91′ – n/a )
Did some decent work in the final third, and managed to tick possession over nicely down the left.
- 14 Hernández – 5 (Young 63′ – 3)
Comes alive in the final third, but missed an open goal. His replacement’s dive was embarrassing.
- 10 Rooney – 6 ( Van Persie 63′ – 5)
Rooney worked hard, but failed to link up nicely with Chicarito who had a bit of a stinker. His replacement Van Persie missed a penalty, too.
