Player Ratings: Derby 1-3 Manchester United

by Sam Peoples

David de Gea 7 – Not much to do, not much to say about De Gea.

Guillermo Varela 8 – Put in a pretty good shift at right-back and would have earned quite a few admirers.

Chris Smalling 6 – A bit suspect for Derby’s goal but overall he kept Derby quiet.

Daley Blind 7 – Brilliant finish from Blind after he started off the move. Shame he can’t play in midfield instead of Marouane Fellaini.

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson 8 – Really enjoyed watching Borthwick-Jackson tonight. He had a good game.

Morgan Schneiderlin 6 – Not as composed as usual from Schneiderlin.

Marouane Fellaini 5 – He’s stealing a living as a central midfielder and has been for a few games now.

Jesse Lingard 5 – Andreas Pereira has every right to be frustrated that he can’t get some opportunities like Lingard given that Jesse isn’t in the best of form right now.

Juan Mata 5 – Was almost invisible for a lot of that game. Poor from Juan overall but did score.

Anthony Martial 8 – Was gliding past Derby’s defenders for fun and got a richly deserved assist late on.

Wayne Rooney A brilliant goal from Rooney in the first half akin to his old self.

Substitutions

Michael Carrick 6 – Good to see Mike back in action.

Ander Herrera N/A
