Player Ratings: Chelsea 1-0 Manchester United – Brilliant Rojo display

David de Gea – Made some brilliant saves in the first half. Although Chelsea had the better of the play, our keeper wasn’t really tested as the game wore on. 7/10

Antonio Valencia – Played outstanding and never gave in. He’s really turning into a guy our boss can rely on. 7/10

Player Ratings: Manchester United 1-1 AFC Bournemouth

David de Gea – The Spaniard didn’t have anything to do except pick the ball out of the back of his net. 5/10

Antonio Valencia – Decent. The way he fizzed that ball into the box for Rojo’ goal was great. Looked to be struggling with an injury late on. 5/10

David de Gea – Quiet. Made a couple of decent saves, perhaps could’ve done better with Southampton’s first. 5/10

Antonio Valencia – Average. Bombed down the right-hand side but he didn’t have that quality in the final pass. 4/10

Player Ratings: Saint-Etienne 0-1 Manchester United – Mkhi scores winner

Sergio Romero – Wasn’t really tested but did alright for the most part. Could distribute better, though. 6/10

David de Gea – Was a bystander in the game right until the death, when Hull City struck the post and left the keeper helpless. 5/10

Antonio Valencia – Nice to see him back involved, he literally had no defending to do. His final ball wasn’t great, though. 4/10

2016/17 Player Ratings: Hull City 2-1 Manchester United

David de Gea – Made a few decent saves in the first half, but couldn’t stop the penalty. His distribution was decent. 5/10

Matteo Darmian – Weirdly, he looks more comfortable out on the left than he does on the right. His positioning was awful at times, and he was at fault for Hull’s second. 3/10
