Manchester United: David de Gea rated as pick of the bunch v Dynamo Kiev

Wayne Rooney again failed to impress the media at CSKA Moscow on Wednesday, with Ander Herrera rated as Manchester United’s best outfielder.

Anthony Martial gave away a penalty but later scored a diving header to earn United a 1-1 draw in the Russian capital which moved them to four points after three games of their Champions League Group B campaign.

David de Gea was rated as United’s best performer overall, earning an average rating of 7.5 from the Daily Mirror, Daily Mail, Daily Telegraph and ESPN FC having made a crucial save to prevent CSKA from going 2-0 ahead having already saved Roman Eremenko’s spot-kick only to be beaten by the rebound.

Herrera was the only other player to gain an average rating in excess of 7/10, with Rooney one of three players, along with Marcos Rojo and Bastian Schweinsteiger, that failed to even break the 6/10 mark.
