Borussia Dortmund vs Manchester United: Player ratings

by Sam Peoples

Sam Johnstone 5 : Really will not be happy with Borussia Dortmund’s first goal. Poor goalkeeping. Did make a good save to stop Aubameyang. Taken off at half-time.

Antonio Valencia 5 : Bit harsh to have conceded a penalty for something he couldn’t avoid but just going to use this moment to make it clear Valencia shouldn’t play at right-back for us.

Eric Bailly 6 : Not as comfortable in the first half as he was against Wigan, down to the opponent and weather. Came out much stronger in the second, showed his raw pace a few times.

Phil Jones 4 : Was pretty bad in that first half. Come on Phil, need to do better than that to get in Mourinho’s plans.

Luke ShawMight have been 37 degrees but bombed it down the left in the first 45 minutes. Continued doing the same in the second.

Ander Herrera 6 : Started sharp, faded a little bit towards the end of the first half but still one of our better performers.

Daley Blind 5Played in his natural midfield position, sat deep and a lot of the game actually passed him by. Not sure he looked completely fit.

Juan Mata 6 : Was a bit isolated in the first half, came into it more in the second. Laid on the pass for Mkhitaryan’s goal. Such an unselfish player.

Jesse Lingard 5I’d love to know why Lingard side-footed a shot from outside the box in the first half when put clean through. Finishing has always been hit and miss.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan 7 : Up against his old club, Mkhitaryan wasn’t as influential as he was against Wigan. Missed a great chance when put through but

Memphis Depay 4Another first half that passed Memphis by. Some poor decisions from him.

Substitutes

Marcus Rashford 6 : Just love watching him. It’s impossible not to. Great dummy for Mkhitaryan’s goal to show his awareness

Ashley Young 4 : Can’t say he did much right or wrong really?

Sergio Romero 5 : Couldn’t stop Dembele’s cracker, didn’t do much else.

Marcos Rojo 3 : He’s an awful defender and needs to be sold.
