Man United 3 Tottenham 0: Player ratings as Marouane Fellaini impresses

Player ratings as Manchester United are emphatic 3-0 winners against Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford

By Sid Selant

Manchester United

David De Gea The United keeper will not have a quieter game in the remainder of the season. 5/10

Daley Blind Posed a threat every time he went forward. Linked up brilliantly with Young. 7

Chris Smalling The England international enjoyed a very comfortable game and was hardly tested. 7

Phil Jones The centre-half partnered Smalling at the back and the former Blackburn man had a commanding game. 7

Antonio Valencia The United full-back ventured forward and stopped Rose from attacking. 7

Ander Herrera The Red Devils midfielder held the ball well and his distribution was excellent. 7

Marouane Fellaini (Man of the match) Best game in the red of United. Scored the first and assisted the second. Constant aerial threat and gave Dier a nightmare. 9

Michael Carrick First start in a while and he showed why he is missed. Controlled the midfield with his calm and confident play. 8

Juan Mata A menace down the flank. Plenty of energy going forward and created chances. 7

Ashley Young Gave Walker an absolutely torrid time in the first half with his pace. He was quieter second half. 7

Wayne Rooney All-round was play truly outstanding, and he got a well-deserved goal for a splendid display. England manager Roy Hodgson would have been impressed. 8

Radamel Falcao N/A

Andreas Pereira N/A

Tottenham Hotspur

Hugo Lloris Hardly made a save in the entire game but picked up the ball from the net three times. 5/10

Kyle Walker Could not handle the pace and creativity of Young and Fellani. Ran ragged in the first half. 3

Eric Dier The England Under-21 international out-paced and out-muscled far too easily. 4

Jan Vertonghen The experienced centre-half didn’t offer much protection and looked vulnerable far too many times. 4

Danny Rose Unable to provide any width. Kept busy trying to stop the home side’s attacks. 4

Andros Townsend Torrid time down the right. He showed no creativity. Replaced after 31 minutes. 4

Ryan Mason Outclassed and looked vulnerable in the middle of the pitch. 5

Nabil Bentaleb Lost possession which led to Rooney’s goal. Unable to get any hold on the game. 5

Nacer Chadli He didn’t make much of a contribution going forward and had a game to forget. At fault for two of the goals. 3

Christian Eriksen Creative midfielder unable to get hold of the ball and dictate play. 4

Harry Kane In-form striker hardly got any chances. Well marshalled by the United defence. Frustrating afternoon. 5


Mousa Dembele Showed energy and determination but to no avail. 5
