Manchester United Players Rated And Slated In Their Loss Against Chelsea

Manchester United had to bow out of the FA Cup against the hands of Chelsea as a hotly contested tie was decided by an emphatic Kante goal.

Let us take a look at the Manchester United player ratings.

GK: David De Gea – 7.5/10

Made two fantastic double saves of Hazard and Cahill and kept United in the game when Chelsea stepped on the pedal.  The only terrific player for Man United on the night.

RWB: Antonio Valencia – 6.5/10

Started on a very positive note but defensive duties beckoned as Chelsea prowled. He couldn’t add a dimension attacking wise but was good as expected in the defence.

CB: Phil Jones – 6/10

Had to work his boots off to keep Hazard in check. Gave away cheap fouls but kept the pressure on the Belgian. A tough night but not at all a bad one.

CB: Chris Smalling – 4.5/10

Didn’t crumble under pressure as he’s learnt from the earlier defeat but he had an extremely difficult night and was made to look like a joke when Hazard twisted and passed him with ease.

CB: Marcos Rojo – 7/10

Made his presence felt at the back, wasn’t at all shy of making challenges and going for the ball. Rojo completely impressed today and on a better day, he would have ended being a part of the winning team. He got done by Willian but he kept Costa down and out.

LWB: Matteo Darmian – 5/10

He struggled tremendously even while having Young to cover him up. Showed aggression but gave away fouls as well. Needs to up his game and keep the aggression intact.


CM: Ander Herrera – 5.5/10

Unfairly sent off. The topic is very debatable but the red card was harsh. Completely spoiled the day for the Spaniard and his team.

CM: Paul Pogba – 6.5/10

Managed to do a very good job till he had Herrera beside him but got overrun in the second half. He really really needs to get a grip and work on his shooting. Shooting is atrocious!

LM: Ashley Young – 4.5/10

Rusty and ineffective. Got beaten by Moses on the night. Terrible.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan – 5/10

Subbed off early after the red card. His work-rate looked good and he maintained the intensity but sadly for the team’s cause he had to leave the pitch.

Marcus Rashford – 8/10

He was ill but he was courageous enough to make it to the pitch and the young Englishman was simply inspiring. He chased down every ball, gave his best till the 90th minute and it’s gutting that he leaves the Bridge without a reward.
