Player Ratings: Manchester United 3-1 Real Madrid

David de Gea – Made some solid saves, including a stop from a Gareth Bale overhead-kick. Distributed the ball superbly. 7/10

Michael Keane – At fault for the penalty. As you’d expect he struggled marking one of the best players in the world in the form of Gareth Bale. 6/10

Phil Jones – What a warrior. He’s a class centre-back with a run of games under his belt. Put his body on the line whenever needed tonight, and made some class tackles. Man of the Match 8/10

Jonny Evans – Looked comfortable all night. Made some key interceptions and got the ball moving forward quickly. 7/10

Antonio Valencia – Full of pace, but thats about it. He’s very one-footed and his crossing was poor. 3/10

Darren Fletcher – Bossed the midfield. Kept it simple, and played some nice passes. Did well in the build-up to Young’s frist goal. 8/10

Ander Herrera – Shown glimpses of what he can do. Linked up superbly with Darren Fletcher and a nice bond is forming with Juan Mata. 6/10

Ashley Young – Stole the show with an excellent goal. Rounded off a twenty pass move with a calm finish, and looked very good in his new wingback role. 8/10

Juan Mata – What a player in the #10 spot. He pulled the strings early on and caused his boyhood club all sorts of problems. 7/10

Wayne Rooney – Looked full of energy, and was involved with most of United’s attacks. Superb. 7/10

Danny Welbeck – Pace and power is what Danny Welbeck is about, and once again Real Madrid looked unable to cope with him. Unfortunate to go off with an injury. 6/10

Subs:

Wilfried Zaha – Looked lively, but didn’t really threaten the Real Madrid goal. 6/10

Luke Shaw – Bombed forward and put in some excellent crosses. 7/10

Tyler Blackett – Dealt with Ronaldo very comfortably when he came on. Looks strong and full of talent. 7/10

Tom Cleverley – Kept it simple and played the safe passes. Did ok on the whole. 6/10

Shinji Kagawa – Grabbed himself an outstanding assist for Manchester United’s third. Seems to thrive in the coveted #10 role. 7/10

Jesse Lingard – Played a delicious ball across the box, but I’m not really sure a right wingback role is suitable for Jesse. 6/10

Javier Hernandez – Took his goal very well, but perhaps should’ve had another one or two. 6/10
