Player Ratings: United 2-2 Fulham

David de Gea – Couldn’t do anything about the first goal. If we’re being picky he could’ve pushed the initial shot that led to Darren Bent’s goal a bit further out. 5/10

Rafael – His crossing was woeful. Bombed forward at every opportunity but struggled when tested. What happened to the Rafael of last year? 3/10

Chris Smalling – Very poor for both goals. He didn’t seem to gel with Vidic and communication was at a minimum. 3/10

Nemanja Vidic – No pace. The Fulham attackers just left him for dead when they countered. 4/10

Patrice Evra – Perhaps our best player today, especially when Januzaj came on. He overlapped at every opportunity and got to the byline on numerous occasions. Final ball let him down though. 6/10

Michael Carrick – Had a shocking first half and couldn’t seem to find a red shirt. Played slightly better in the second and took his goal well. 5/10

Darren Fletcher – Struggled and lacked creativity. Always looked for the easy five yard pass and didn’t get stuck in enough. 4/10

Ashley Young – Woeful and far too predictable. Always looked to cut back inside and use his left-foot which made it easy for defenders. 3/10

Wayne Rooney – Didn’t get on the ball anywhere near enough. He struggled to influence the game like we know he can. Played well in centre-mid when he dropped back. 5/10

Juan Mata – Average. He managed to bag an assist but that was about it. 5/10

Robin van Persie – Scored but offered little else. Similar to Rooney; He needed to get on the ball far more and have an effect on the game. 5/10

Subs:

Adnan Januzaj – Looked dangerous when he came on, and at least he tried to beat his man. Should’ve started/ 5/10

Antonio Valencia – Bombed forward but he didn’t really get an opportunity to get the ball into the box. 4/10

Javier Hernandez – Didn’t offer anything. He struggles to hold the ball up. 4/10

De gea is also costing the team with no saves he used to make.all the players lack aggressiveness apart from Rooney who is always running around without plan.He should be sold these are Senior players that have no profit in the team.carrick tried 2 shots of which he should keep up.eNGLAND PLAYERS WILL NEVER ASSIST MANCHESTER UNITED.
