How we thing the Red Devils fared against the Tigers.
United showed that they can still turn on the style when they want to, and there was no stopping them once they got going. Some stood out more than others, but this was a strong team performance that saw everybody pull their socks up and bring their A game to the table.
GK: David de Gea – 7
Didn’t have much to do, but what he did he did well.
RB: Antonio Valencia – 7
Had a tough afternoon dealing with Robertson and Ben Arfa, but did well.
CB: Chris Smalling – 8
Kept things together at the back whilst chipping in with a goal to open the scoring.
CB: Marcos Rojo – 7
Did well on his return, stood up well to the physicality of Jelavic.
LB: Ashley Young – 7
Broke forward well, but is quite clearly not cut out to play defensively.
