Manchester United held on for a 0-0 draw against Sevilla in their Champions League Round of 16 first leg tie in Spain.

Here’s how Jose Mourinho’s men fared during the crunch encounter against their La Liga opposition.

David de Gea: 9

Contender for the best save of the season after denying Luis Muriel’s on-target header from close range at stoppage time of first half. Made a brilliant save earlier as well.

Antonio Valencia: 5

Not a convincing game for the United skipper in both attack and defence.

WATCH: What Sevilla player did after David de Gea’s unbelievable save

Chris Smalling: 6

Had a solid show at the back and made some crucial interceptions. Was culpable once for Muriel’s on-target header, as he failed to mark the forward.

Victor Lindelof: 5

Looked vulnerable at times with hesitations on the ball, but managed to hang on.

Ashley Young: 7

Made some good runs going forward and defended diligently.

Nemanja Matic: 7

Was cynical at times for clumsy fouls, but did a good job in breaking up the play.

Ander Herrera: 6

Looked to influence the game for the 17 minutes he lasted until the hamstring injury.

Scott McTominay: 7

Mature performance from the 20-year-old, with his passing game being solid. Had a curling shot saved by the Sevilla keeper.

Juan Mata: 4

Lacked the zeal and influence he showed in the previous match over the weekend.

Alexis Sanchez: 5

With nothing going forward, the player was seen doing more run-ins defensively and left Lukaku isolated.

Romelu Lukaku: 5

Missed a glaring chance after glancing the ball high with his left foot. Lacked touches after being cut a lonely figure.

SUBSTITUTIONS –

Paul Pogba: 5

Was absent for most of the game, before showing some skills right in the end and laying a beautiful ball for Rashford.

Anthony Martial: 5

Brought energy on the left side after being brought on.

Marcus Rashford: 6

Saw his well taken free-kick curling away from the post. Missed the target after good work by Pogba.
