by Sid Choudhary

Sergio Romero 5 Made the comfortable saves but struggled with his distribution

Matteo Darmian 9 Up and down the right wing, a hugely impressive Old Trafford debut

Chris Smalling 8 Nullified the danger of Harry Kane quite comfortably

Daley Blind 7 Comfortable at the back against a solitary striker. Handled Spurs’ attacking moves with comfort and efficiency

United 15

Luke Shaw 6 Struggled slightly after a promising pre-season. Gave the ball away on occasion

Morgan Schneiderlin 6 Never settled into the game and his expansive passing game didn’t seem to work

Michael Carrick 7 Kept the ball well for United but struggled to get anything going forward

Juan Mata 7 Heavily involved but struggled to really penetrate a tight Spurs defence

Memphis Depay 6 Slightly disappointing first appearance at Old Trafford, tried his best to make things happen but couldn’t make a real impact

Bastian Schweinsteiger 19

Ashley Young 7 Made good inroads down the left hand side but found it difficult to get past Kyle Walker at right-back

Wayne Rooney 7 Didnt have much of an impact up front but his positioning led to United’s solitary goal


Bastian Schweinsteiger 7 Got United on the ball a lot more and brought control to the midfield

Ander Herrera 6 Started to make United drive forward more but couldn’t get as involved as he would have liked

Antonio Valencia 5 Gave the ball away often and never seemed comfortable after coming on for Darmian
