Manchester United

Fantasy Points User Rating Our Rating Your Rating
De Gea

Easily saved long-range shots from Oscar and Hazard. Only one corner to deal with.

7 6.2 6

Jones

Kept going after injuring his back in first half. Cole tried to win penalty off him, but to no avail.

7 5.9 7
5
Ferdinand

Never seriously threatened by Chelsea's 'mobility'. Occasional wayward long-range passing.

7 6.1 7

Vidic

A tower of strength for the hosts. Ensured Chelsea barely got into the area all night.

7 6.9 8
5
Evra

Typically energetic display, both in attack and defence. Contained De Bruyne effectively.

7 6.1 7
5
Carrick

Shielded United's back four well, but perhaps could have offered slightly more going forward.

2 6.1 7
5
Cleverley

Appealed for a penalty after volleying into Lampard. Decent-enough midfield display.

2 5.8 6
5
Valencia Off '67

Looked enthusiastic and willing, and ensured Cole had an uneasy night at left-back.

2 5.8 7
5
Rooney

Final ball wasn't quite there, but not for the want of trying. Always wanted the ball and tackle on Ramires brought cheers.

2 7.4 7
5
Welbeck Off '78

Presented with United's best chances of the night and wasted them. Good approach play, however.

2 5.6 6

van Persie

Had scraps to feed upon, but by his usual high standards this was a forgettable outing.

2 5.8 6

Giggs On '78

Little chance of making an impact in final 12 minutes.

Young On '67

First league appearance since April and didn't look overly rusty.

Cech

Dependable when called upon to save or claim, on a night with several long gaps of inactivity.

7 6.2 6

Ivanovic

Blues had few set-pieces at which he could threaten, but did as much as Cahill to ensure clean sheet.

7 6.4 7

Cahill

Concentration levels seemed improved after dodgy England outing. David Luiz may struggle to get back in.

7 6.3 7
5
Terry

Marshalled Chelsea's defence well and positional sense was very good, keeping United chances to a minimum.

7 6.8 8
5
Cole

Given a stern workout by Valencia and penalty appeal seemed optimistic to say the least.

7 5.9 6
5
Ramires

Wasteful in possession and looked uncomfortable in Mourinho's formation.

2 5.2 5
5
Lampard

Couldn't get impose himself on the game and might have given away a penalty when Cleverley's shot hit him.

2 5.6 6
5
De Bruyne Off '60

Shackled well by Evra for an hour. Was unlucky to be booked after tangle with van Persie in the first half.

1 5.4 6
5
Oscar

Long-range shots didn't worry De Gea but was creative and hard-working in midfield.

2 6.3 7
5
Hazard Off '90+4

Flitted in and out of the game from a wide position as Mourinho's attacking formation failed to spark.

2 6.0 6
5
Schurrle Off '87

Played furthest forward and didn't see much of the ball. Was offside when put through, but hit bar anyway.

2 5.7 6
5
Torres On '60

Preferred to Lukaku for final half hour but didn't hold the ball up well, which is what Chelsea needed.

0 5.1 5

Mikel On '87

Came off the bench and blocked a van Persie shot, which resulted in another failed penalty appeal.

Azpilicueta On '90+4

On the pitch for barely a minute.
