(4-2-3-1)

David De Gea - 6

Nothing he could have done about the first-half goals and let down by those ahead of him.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 5.5

Struggled with Raheem Sterling’s movement and could have been more careful when picking passes.

Victor Lindelof - 5

Unsure on the ball and unsure when to attack loose possession or drop off. A very rocky evening.

Phil Jones - 5

Looked like a man who’d played once since November. Nobody can afford to be rusty against City.

Brandon Williams – 7

A rare bright spark for United. Stuck to his task against Riyad Mahrez and forayed forward when possible.

Fred - 5

Outclassed. Too many City runners to cope with and not enough help from those around him.

Andreas Pereira - 4

The game completely passed him by. City were too quick in midfield. Own goal summed the night up.

Daniel James - 6

Starved of quick ball out to the right after initially causing problems for Benjamin Mendy.

Jesse Lingard - 5

One of very few willing to put his foot in but nothing really came off for Lingard in an attacking sense.

Marcus Rashford - 7

Captain for the night was largely reduced to chasing shadows but took his only chance with precision.

Mason Greenwood - 6

Hard not to feel sorry for the teenager. Kept coming deep in an attempt to affect the game to no avail.
