GK- David De Gea 6
Didn’t have much to do, but should have done better with Sturridge’s goal despite the slight deflection.
RB- Antonio Valencia 6
Solid performance from Valencia, after a tough few weeks.
CB- Chris Smalling 7
Decent display from the England defender. He was a strong influence on the defence.
CB- Phil Jones 6
Booked for a challenge on Jordan Henderson, but played well alongside Smalling.
