GK) David De Gea, 6
The goalkeeper could do little on the goal, and generally didn’t have to do much in what was an uninspiring match until the final fifteen minutes.
CB) Phil Jones, 4
Was part of the back line that was woefully out of shape for the Saints’ goal, and had no chance to make up for it later on.
CB) Chris Smalling, 4
Similar to Jones in that he was part of the poor defending for Tadic’s strike, but had little else to do.
CB) Daley Blind, 5
Played an important part in passing the ball out from the back three, but the fact that United looked so drab has to go against the pass master.
LWB) Luke Shaw, 6
Tried his best going forward against his old team, but was unable to make any inroads despite the effort. Taken off for Tyler Blackett on 64′.
RWB) Antonio Valencia, 6
Same as Shaw, the pair’s failure showing how important the wing-backs are when you play with three/five at the back.
