2016/17 Player Ratings: Manchester United 1-0 Manchester City

David de Gea – Literally had nothing to do. City didn’t have one shot on target, and all De Gea had to do was to pass the ball to his teammates. 6/10

Antonio Valencia – Played a blinder. Ran their left-back ragged and didn’t stop all game. Top performance. 8/10

Marcos Rojo – To his credit, the Argentinian did very well. Looks much more comfortable as a centre-back rather than out on the left. 7/10

Daley Blind – Cool, calm and collected. Back to his usual self after a poor performance against Chelsea. 6/10

Luke Shaw – Got burned by Navas a few times in the first half, but made the adjustment in the second and didn’t give him a sniff. 7/10

Michael Carrick – Once again ran the show. His ability to protect the back four and get United on the counter attack is amazing. 8/10

Ander Herrera – Becoming undroppable at the moment. His energy, leadership and pure belief seem to get the whole team going. 7/10

Paul Pogba – Struggling in the first 45, but grew into the game. Greatly improved in the second but you still want more from him. 5/10

Juan Mata – Always makes intelligent decisions and the right run. Took his goal superbly, and earned a standing ovation as he was subbed. 7/10

Marcus Rashford – Tried his best down the flank but struggled at times. That work ethic and energy never dwindled though. 6/10

Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Very similar to Pogba. Struggled in the first half but as the game wore on, his performance levels improved. Held the ball up brilliantly. 6/10

Subs:

Morgan Schneiderlin – Came on and strengthened the midfield. Did well and it was nice to see him.

Jesse Lingard – Not enough time to mark.
