Player Ratings: Stoke City 2-0 Manchester United

by Sam Peoples

David de GeaMade a couple of good saves (really struggling to find positives after this game…)

Ashley YoungHad a bad first half but a much better second half.

Chris Smalling 5 Think he was just as average as Jones today. 

Phil JonesAs described above, his performance was average. Stoke ran rings round us.

Daley BlindHe was shocking today.

Michael CarrickNot as bad as Herrera but still simply not good enough.

Ander HerreraEveryone was delighted to see him back in the team but he played as if he was hungover.

Juan MataAnother invisible performance from Juan.

Marouane FellainiMissed another six yard sitter and generally was so poor at winning headers which was pretty much the only reason he was on the pitch.

Memphis DepayWhat a disgraceful performance from Memphis. No other way to describe it.

Anthony MartialBright spark as usual but Jack Butland was there to stop everything.

Substitutions

Wayne RooneyPlayed pretty well when he came off the bench. Rooney without the captain’s armband is a good thing.

Andreas Pereira N/A
