Club Brugge 0 Man United 4: Player ratings as Wayne Rooney nets hat-trick

Player ratings as Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney scores a hat-trick in a 4-0 victory over Club Brugge

Manchester United

Sergio Romero Shaky start but did well under pressure. Great save just before half-time. Proved himself as the game went on. 6/10

Matteo Darmian Important block in the first half to deny Brugge from scoring. Goes from strength-to-strength each game and is a force to be reckoned with in United’s new defence. 7

Chris Smalling Again his partnership with Blind proved important. Smalling continues to shine. 6

Daley Blind Defended well but almost conceded with a bad touch in the first half. United may need to work slightly more to convert Blind to a centre-half. Was quick in tracking back. 5

Luke Shaw Had a chance through on goal early on in the game but could not convert the chance. Defended well throughout. 6

Ander Herrera Given a yellow card early on. Scored to make it 4-0 and seal the tie for the Red Devils before being substituted. 6

Michael Carrick It is clear United still need their faithful player as he is commanding in the holding midfield role. Played well throughout the game. 7

Juan Mata Got the assist for the Rooney. Proves he is a vital player for United in the midfield as he controlled the game. 7

Adnan Januzaj Was no where to be seen in the first half. Was unfortunately subbed at half-time so could not prove himself in the second half. 4

Memphis Depay Kept on performing to a high standard and provided a slick pass for the assist for Rooney’s goal. He missed a fantastic chance to put the tie to bed but was defended well from Brugge. However, his wing play remains nothing short of spectacular. 7

Wayne Rooney (Man of the match) Eventually ended his goal drought with an opener in the 20th minute. Scored a hat-trick in the game. Could open the floodgates for the forward to continue scoring. 8

Substitutes

Ashley Young N/A

Bastain Schweinsteiger Had a chance to score but could not get his first goal for United. 4

Javier Hernandez Missed a penalty in the closing stages of the game as he shot wide. Also missed a glorious chance late on. 3
