Manchester United: Fall to defeat in Rotterdam

Jose Mourinho was left red-faced as his Red Devils were beaten 1-0 by Feyenoord in Rotterdam to open their Europa League group stage campaign with a defeat.


David de Gea: The Spaniard was not really troubled throughout the 90 minutes and was left high-and-dry for the goal. 6

Matteo Darmian: Made a steady start in his first game of the season but was also beaten a couple of times, which didn’t help a nervous defence. 5

Eric Bailly: Despite taking an early knock, he recovered well and was part of the reason United did not concede more on the night. 7

Chris Smalling: Jorgensen was quite a handful for the hosts up front, and Smalling did a solid job despite conceding.  6

Marcos Rojo: A very poor first half was compounded by a not much improved second half. Gave the ball away a lot and looked shaky tracking back. 4

Morgan Schneiderlin: Was actually the most impressive player on the field for United tonight. Looked accomplished in his role, often cutting out danger. 7

Ander Herrera: He tried and tried to make his stamp on the game, having more attacking freedom. Encouraging signs. 6

Juan Mata: Struggled to make his mark in a very physical game, something which resulted in his inevitable substitution. 5

Paul Pogba: Re-signed for Man Utd this summer

Paul Pogba: It was a better showing than the derby from Pogba, but he still isn’t displaying enough. At times looks behind the game, and needs the ball at his feet. 5

Anthony Martial: Started brightly and looked determined to dictate the pace, but then faded to obscurity. 6

Marcus Rashford: A really tough night for him thanks to Mourinho’s setup. Looked alone up top, and that simply doesn’t work. 5


Ibrahimovic (sub Rashford 63): Actually tested the opposition ‘keeper with a free-kick, but apart from that made no impact.  5

Memphis (sub Martial 63): The stage was set for him to wreak havoc back in Holland, but he didn’t really get chance. 5

Young (sub Mata 63): Missed a late sitter. 4
