Player Ratings: Man United 1-0 CSKA Moscow – King Chris Smalling

by Sam Peoples

David de Gea 7 Stunning save which was then cleaned up by Chris Smalling.

Marcos RojoThink he played very well right up until his final delivery. Still needs a lot of work.

Chris Smalling 11 Marry me please, Chris. What an interception that was.

Daley Blind 7 Love Blind’s over-the-top through-balls.

Ashley Young 6 He was a bit ineffective on the right, especially in comparison to Rojo.

Michael Carrick 7.5 Thought he looked like the Carrick of old tonight and he was inches away from a stunning volleyed goal.

Bastian SchweinsteigerLovely and composed all game, deserved his standing ovation at the end.

Juan Mata 6 Like Young, was pretty ineffective.

Wayne Rooney 7 Deserved criticism over the last few weeks and deserves praise tonight. Desperately important goal.

Jesse Lingard 7 Very impressed by Lingard for most of the game. Over zealous at times but he and Rojo caused lots of problems.

Anthony Martial 6 Was marked out of the game by literally 2-4 CSKA defenders every time he had the ball.


Marouane Fellaini 6 Not much to say about him.

Ander Herrera N/A Don’t think it’s fair to judge, wasn’t on for long enough.

Memphis Depay N/A Don’t think it’s fair to judge, wasn’t on for long enough.
