in Match Coverage by

How Manchester United’s players rated after this evening’s 0-0 draw at Anfield.

De Gea – 8 – Two outstanding saves after a mostly quiet game. Outstanding concentration.

Valencia – 7 – Sensational recovery tackle to deny Firmino; steady at both ends.

Bailly – 7 – Solid performance, considering it was his first exposure to this game.

Smalling – 7 – Imperious when dealing with headers, but careless with the direction of all of them.

Blind – 7 – Selected for his composure and was a calm head as United dominated the early stages.

Fellaini – 7- The kind of game a spoiler like the Belgian features in; did exactly as you’d expect.

*Herrera – 8 – The game’s best player. Combative, useful on the ball, and a dictator of the pace of the match.

Pogba – 5 – Wretched game from the world’s most expensive player.

Rashford – 6 – Provided decent width but struggled to make usual impact.

Ibrahimovic – 5 – Fluffed United’s best chance to win it. Contributed little.

Young – 6 – Surprise selection, but did all the necessary responsible grafting.

Subs : Rooney (Rashford), Shaw (Young)

Mourinho – 7 – Got the selection right; United dominated the first half and, if they were not so sloppy in possession, could have had a lead. When Liverpool’s expected wave of pressure came, the manager had selected a cool headed team to deal with it.
