A Look Back At The Game At Old Trafford – Manchester United Player Ratings vs Leicester City

Manchester United Player Ratings vs Leicester City

Manchester United and Leicester City played out a tense 1-1 draw which didn’t help either side out. The Foxes needed all three points to wrap up the title while United needed the win to have a chance of getting into the top four of the Premier League and to make it into the Champions League.

The fact that Leicester had Danny Drinkwater sent off should have given Manchester United the impetus to attack more and get the three points but that did not happen. An early Anthony Martial goal was cancelled out by Wes Morgan.

We look back at the game at Old Trafford and provide the player ratings for the Manchester United team.

David de Gea – 7/10

The Spanish goalkeeper didn’t have to do much in the game but could not be faulted for conceding the goal that Wes Morgan scored.

Antonio Valencia – 7/10

Valencia was good going forward and attacked Leicester really well but he could not provide much of an end product in the game.

Chris Smalling – 6/10

The English defender had a few tough squabbles in the game but was decent overall.

Daley Blind – 6/10

Daley Blind also had to deal with the likes of Ulloa and Okazaki but did just about enough to keep the duo at bay.

Marcos Rojo – 5/10

Rojo didn’t have the greatest game and looked a little off the pace which would be a worry for many United fans.

Michael Carrick – 6/10

Carrick didn’t really do much in the game but was caught out a couple of times and lost possession once which led to his booking.

Jesse Lingard – 5/10

Lingard had a good rasping shot in the first half but apart from that and his tussle with Simpson; the English attacker didn’t do much.

Marouane Fellaini – 6/10

Another day, another tussle, Fellaini did cause Leicester problems but was lucky not to be sent off for an elbow on Huth.

Wayne Rooney – 5/10

Wayne Rooney couldn’t really put his stamp on the game and he too was lucky not to be sent off for two yellow card offences.

Anthony Martial – 7/10

The youngster did score a pretty good goal but didn’t have a lot of other chances to increase United’s lead.

Marcus Rashford – 5/10

Rashford felt out of place in the game and couldn’t really do much for the side.

Substitutes:

Juan Mata – 5/10

Was brought on in the second half but was highly ineffective.

Ander Herrera – 6/10

Not an outing Herrera would be proud off, he came off the bench but it felt like he was missing a bit of pace.

Memphis Depay – NA
