2016/17 Player Ratings: Swansea City 1-3 Manchester United

David de Gea – Had a fairly quiet afternoon. Not much he could do about Swansea’s consolation. 6/10

Ashley Young – Played out of position at right-back and did the best he could in a bad situation. 5/10

Phil Jones – Nice to see him back, and played pretty good considering he hasn’t played for us since January. 6/10

Marcos Rojo – You feel he is a disaster waiting to happen, but did alright. 6/10

Matteo Darmian – Played left-back, and always seems to do better there than on the right-hand side. 6/10

Michael Carrick – What a player. Protected the back four wonderfully and picked the right pass more often than not. 8/10

Marouane Fellaini – Not bad, but didn’t really stand out. Just kept things ticking. 6/10

Paul Pogba – Top performance capped off with a wonderful strike in the first half. Things seem to be clicking into place for our Frenchman. 7/10

Juan Mata – Stuck back out wide where he is always less productive. Did well though. 6/10

Wayne Rooney – He was great, and picked up three assists. Controlled the game well. 7/10

Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Back to his brilliant best. Held the ball up excellently and scored two great goals. Sadly, picked up a yellow card and will miss Arsenal at home. 8/10


Jesse Lingard –  Not enough time to mark.

Morgan Schneiderlin – Not enough time to mark.

Tim Fosu-Mensah – Not enough time to mark.
