Picture: Sole Manchester United star named in BBC’s Team of the Week

As we all know too well, Manchester United dropped a couple of points at the weekend, with AFC Bournemouth holding us to a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford. Sadly, this type of thing has happened far too many times this year and it could well be what costs us a spot in the top four.

On the day, there was only really one Manchester United player who walked away from the Theatre of Dreams with any credit – and that was defender Marcos Rojo.

Now, his efforts have been rewarded with a spot in Garth Crook’s BBC Team of the Week and he more than deserves the inclusion in my opinion.

The Argentine managed to get on the score-sheet with a lovely little finish in the first half, and defensively he was very solid throughout. It’s just a shame he wasn’t helped all that much by his Manchester United teammates.

Check out Garth’s full team here:

The centre-back deserves massive credit for turning things around this season. Under Louis van Gaal he looked lost and his days at Manchester United looked numbered, but under Jose, he’s been absolutely sensational.

Unfortunately, Rojo is joined in the team by none other than Bournemouth goalkeeper Artur Boruc, who was brilliant in between the sticks against us. Jamie Vardy, Harry Kane and David Silva were also included.
