Player Ratings: Manchester United & Sevilla play out dull 0-0, McTominay the highlight

David de Gea – Made a truly incredible save to preserve United’s clean sheet. 7/10

Antonio Valencia – Like most, Valencia was never really involved in the game. Kept his concentration though, and defended well. 5/10

Chris Smalling – Won the aerial battle, was physical, strong and tough to beat in the one-on-one situation. 6/10

Victor Lindelof – Made some excellent blocks and tackles, particularly when Sevilla were on the counter-attack. 6/10

Ashley Young – Positionally, he got caught out at times. His passing was wayward for the most part, too. 4/10

Nemanja Matic – Made one or two key interceptions. He didn’t release the ball quick enough at times, however. 5/10

Scott McTominay – Probably the only player to come away from the game with credit. He’s growing into the role as a Manchester United central-midfielder. 7/10

Ander Herrera – His match was over inside 15 minutes with a hamstring injury. A real shame.

Juan Mata – Couldn’t get into the game at all. He needs players to make intelligent runs, and it seemed as though United had been told to sit back. 5/10

Alexis Sanchez – Didn’t really show us an awful lot. He cut a frustrated figure. It’s going to take time for him to adapt to United’s style. 5/10

Romelu Lukaku – Got better as the match progressed and the game became stretched. Had a decent opportunity in the first-half, which he didn’t take. 5/10

Subs:

Paul Pogba – Came on early, but didn’t really control the game as you’d expect, particularly from a player of his quality.

Marcus Rashford – His speed seemed to cause concern to the Sevilla defenders.

Anthony Martial – Not enough time to make an impact on the match.
