Manchester United hosted Burnley at Old Trafford on Saturday, in what was their 10th league game of the season.
Despite putting in a dominant performance, Jose Mourinho’s men were left completely frustrated at full-time, after failing to break the Burnley defence. The game ended goalless, with both teams sharing the spoils.
Here’s how the United players fared in the 0-0 draw:
DAVID DE GEA: 6
Was hardly tested. Spent most of the game on the offensive, by creating from the back.
MATTEO DARMIAN: 6
Successfully replaced Valencia at right-back, and was industrious both in defence and on offense. Almost won United a penalty.
DALEY BLIND: 6
Commanded the defence and created from the back.
MARCOS ROJO: 6
Did the job in both Bailly and Smalling’s absence.
LUKE SHAW: 6
Failed to contribute much in the attack, but made a crucial tackle on Andre Gray to prevent a one-on-one situation.
ANDER HERRERA: 6
Pulled strings from midfield and orchestrated several attacks. Got sent off in the second half rather unluckily.
PAUL POGBA: 7
Attempted several shots on target, but failed to score. Whipped in some dangerous crosses late in the game – the best of which was completely wasted by his Swedish friend.
JESSE LINGARD: 4
Missed a good chance to score by heading the ball off target. Far from good enough to justify his selection over a certain Armenian playmaker.
JUAN MATA: 8
Put in a captain’s performance. Created numerous chances, had some decent attempts at goal, and managed to hit the post once. Did everything right, but got bizarrely subbed off when he was needed the most.
MARCUS RASHFORD: 6
Was a live wire on the left; not so much when moved to the right. Another player to get taken off for no logical reason.
ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC: 4
Poor and wasteful. Missed a sitter. Needs to be dropped.
MAROUANE FELLAINI: 4
Failed to get into the game.
WAYNE ROONEY: 4
Slowed down United’s tempo. Could’ve won his team all 3 points, but failed to hit the target from a well-worked free-kick.
MEMPHIS DEPAY: 3
Didn’t do much other than helping his teammates mount a protest around Clattenburg after the full-time whistle.
