Player Ratings: Manchester United 4-2 Manchester City

David de Gea – Made some superb saves, and turned into a wonderful sweeper keeper. 7

Chris Smalling – Grew into the game. Took his goal superbly and on the whole did well. 7

Phil Jones – Looked nervy, but improved. 6

Daley Blind – Kept Zabaleta silent from minute one. Offered Young a constant outlet on the left. 8

Michael Carrick – He makes United tick. Kept the ball moving forward, and was at the heart of everything good. 8

Ander Herrera – What a class act. Kept United in the driving seat whilst keeping the threat of Silva quiet. 8

Juan Mata – Typical Juan Mata. Kept United in possession and took his goal superbly. 8

Ashley Young – Grabbed a goal and two fantastic assists. Man of the Match. 10
