2016/17 Player Ratings: Chelsea FC 4-0 Manchester United

David de Gea – The Spaniard was part of a comedy of errors for Chelsea’s opening goal. Couldn’t really do anything about the other three. 3/10

Antonio Valencia – Probably United’s best player in the first half, which doesn’t say much. Bombed down the right where possible. 4/10

Chris Smalling – The worst performance from a centre-back we’ve seen in recent years at United. At fault for three goals, and his game as a whole was truly shocking. 0/10

Eric Bailly – Picked up a needless yellow card. Made some key tackles, but had to be subbed off due to injury. 4/10

Daley Blind – Not his best outing. The first goal was his fault and he made Pedro look like Lionel Messi. 2/10

Marouane Fellaini – I don’t really remember him having a touch on the ball. Just couldn’t get into the game. 3/10

Ander Herrera – Looked lively. Made some nice passes and tried to dictate the tempo but couldn’t. Kante had the better of him as the game wore on. 4/10

Paul Pogba – Once again went missing in a big match. Made too many errant passes and his decision making was awful. 2/10

Jesse Lingard – Was given the start due to his ability to track back and defend. He didn’t do it well enough. 3/10

Marcus Rashford – Was far too isolated to produce anything this afternoon. Worked hard, but that’s about it. 3/10

Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Again, not great from our big man up top. He didn’t hold the ball up well, and had a great chance to score with a header in the first half. Didn’t take it. 2/10


Juan Mata – Given the nod at the start of the second half, but couldn’t really get going.

Marcos Rojo – Came on as a sub for the injured Bailly. Did ok.

Anthony Martial – Not enough time to have an impact on the match.
