Player Ratings: Manchester City 0-0 Manchester United – Bailly brilliance

David de Gea – Had to save a few shots, but most of them were straight down his throat. Wasn’t really stretched. 6/10

Antonio Valencia – Nice to have him back. Defensively he was great. Unfortunately, he wasn’t allowed to get forward much. 6/10

Eric Bailly – What a warrior. He didn’t give the City front line a sniff, and when things were getting sketchy, he was there to clean things up. 8/10

Daley Blind – He isn’t a natural defender but he did a supreme job this evening. Fair play. 7/10

Matteo Darmian – He wins the ball back, but the thing that frustrates me most is he doesn’t have any composure and just hoofs it up field. 5/10

Michael Carrick – Cool, calm and composed. It was an excellent decision to bring him back into the mix. 6/10

Marouane Fellaini – Played well for the most part, but what on earth what he thinking when he got sent off? Absolutely lost his head and he let his teammates down badly. 3/10

Ander Herrera – Started brightly, but faded as the game went on. We needed more from him when we were in possession. Also had a golden chance to win it. 5/10

Henrikh Mkhitaryan – Quiet, very quiet. Dispossessed far too easily and just didn’t get going. Should have been subbed earlier. 3/10

Anthony Martial – Made a couple of nice runs early on and left Zabaleta for dead. When City got going, he was dragged back and had to defend more. 6/10

Marcus Rashford – His pace stretched City for the first 20 minutes but he became far too isolated. 5/10


Jesse Lingard – Didn’t really do an awful lot.

Tim Fosu-Mensah – Came on to sure up the point.

Ashley Young – Did he even get a touch?
