How did we rate the United side during their Premier League trip to the Emirates Stadium this evening?
Manchester United heaped the misery on Premier League rivals Arsenal this evening as goals from Wayne Rooney and Kieran Gibbs, at the wrong end, handed Louis van Gaal’s men a deserved victory.
This is how we rated the inexperienced United team in North London:
GK) David de Gea 8 – De Gea was in fine form all afternoon, making a string of impressive saves as Arsenal created chances and forced the Spaniard to be at the top his game.
CB) Paddy McNair 7 – As with most of his teammates, started shakily, but was absolutely superb as he grew into the game.
CB) Chris Smalling 7 – An impressively solid return to the team by Smalling after his disastrous showing in the Manchester derby.
