United, with their makeshift midfield of Phil Jones and Ryan Giggs, secured their place in the knockout stages of the Champions League with a 5-0 victory and a commanding performance in Germany.
David de Gea – The Spaniard couldn’t do anything about either goal, but didn’t have much to do apart from that. 5/10 Chris Smalling – Great defender, but not a right-back. He struggles with the natural width […]
United travelled to Spain, knowing that a victory would take them within touching distance of the knockout stages of the Champions League. Instead, they jet back to Manchester after a dull, drab and disappointing 0-0 […]
Anders Lindegaard – The Dane didn’t have an awful lot to do. He kept Robert Snodgrass out from close range with a decent save. 6/10 Rafael – He was like a winger last night. He kept bombing forward […]

David Moyes secured his first Old Trafford victory with a 2-0 win yesterday. Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney provided the goals with a penalty and a free-kick respectively in a game Manchester United dominated […]
