Man United 2-1 Chelsea – Player Ratings

Manchester United defeated Chelsea 2-1 in a tightly fought encounter at Old Trafford earlier today. Let’s see how the players rated …

De Gea 6

There is no denying the world’s best goalkeeper should have done a lot better for Chelsea’s goal.

Valencia 7

A workman like performance by United’s captain. Particularly strong in the closing stages.

Smalling 7

Won his battle with Morata, and has bounced back well from some heavy criticism lately.

Lindelöf 7

Apart from one erratic moment in second-half, the Sweden international put in a relatively composed display.

Young 6

Given a tough day by Victor Moses, and should have done better when in possession in attacking areas.

McTominay 7

Lost Willian for the goal, but all in all another really promising display by the youngster.

Matic 9

Did a superb job as his teams defensive screen. his best performance in some time.

Pogba 7

Still looks a little sort of confidence, but grew into the game in the second-half, showing some nice touches and forward passes.

Sánchez 6

Worked hard, but doesn’t look to have fully settled into his new team yet.

Lukaku 9 ( MOTM )

Finally got his first goal in a big game with a tidy finish, and excellent crossed assist for the winner.

Martial 7

Brilliant assist for Lukaku goal. Did not impact the much apart from that however.


Lingard 7

Added some much needed energy to his teams play, and scored the winning goal with a well taken header.

Bailly N/A

No impact.

Courtois 7

No chance with either goal, and made a couple of decent saves.

Azpilicueta 7

Solid defensively as always, and his distribution from the back continues to impress.

Christensen 5

Been a tough week for the youngster after his mistake against Barca,  and could have done better for both of United’s goals.

Rüdiger 6

Lacked composure in defence and possession.

Moses 7

Probably just shaded his battle with Young, although he could have done better when in attacking area’s on a couple of occassions.

Kanté 7

Got through a mountain of work in the centre, although he is not dominating games like he did last season anymore.

Drinkwater 7

Worked hard and passed well.

Alonso 7

Unable to get forward as much as usual, but did very little wrong.

Willian 8

Continued his recent razor sharp form, with another excellent display and scored his sides goal with a powerful finish.

Hazard 8

A constant danger when in possession, it was a massive error by Conte to take him off with 20  minutes remaining.

Morata 5

Poor. Looks a shadow of the player we saw early this season.


Pedro 5

Unable to make any impact.

Giroud 6

Received no quality service after his introduction.

Fàbregas N/A

No impact.
