2016/17 Player Ratings: Manchester United 0-0 Burnley FC

David de Gea – Literally had nothing to do except catch the ball and distribute it to the players in front of him. 6/10

Matteo Darmian – Played very well, and took his chance to start in Valencia’s absence. Jose Mourinho will be pleased. 7/10

Daley Blind – Didn’t give Sam Vokes a sniff. However, his passing was a bit wayward at times today. 6/10

Marcos Rojo – Wasn’t bad to be fair. Looks to be forming a solid partnership with Blind.  6/10

Luke Shaw – Played well defensively, sometimes you want him to bomb forward more and take that gamble though. 6/10

Ander Herrera – Picked up a needless booking in the first 45 and that came back to haunt him as he slipped and got himself a second yellow. 5/10

Paul Pogba – Grew into the game, and in the second half he absolutely bossed things. Should have had about five assists if his teammates knew how to finish. 7/10

Jesse Lingard – Linked up well with his teammates at times, but when given time on the ball he tends to overthink things and pick the wrong option. 5/10

Juan Mata – Pulled the strings throughout but wasn’t helped by his teammates. Deserved the captain’s armband, but I have no idea why he was subbed off. 7/10

Marcus Rashford – Didn’t really have any real impact despite all his talents. 5/10

Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Very poor. Could have, and should have had a hat-trick. His all-round game wasn’t all that bad, but how he didn’t get a goal is beyond me. 4/10

Subs:

Wayne Rooney – Didn’t improve the situation. His touch wasn’t great…

Marouane Fellaini – Won headers, but his natural game doesn’t fit United’s play.

Memphis Depay – Not enough time to impact the match.
