Didn't do anything drastically wrong which counts as good for him this season.

Your rating: 5.19

Willian (90+1 minutes)

Your rating: 5.43

Manchester United

No chance with Hazard's penalty. Quiet game but a big save from Marcos Alonso in the second half.

Antonio Valencia (right-back)

Phil McNulty's rating: 5

Troubled by Eden Hazard and delivery poor in attacking positions.

Your rating: 5.02

Chris Smalling (centre-back)

Phil McNulty's rating: 5

Not at his best and his partnership with Jones looked vulnerable.

Your rating: 4.83

Phil Jones (centre-back)

Phil McNulty's rating: 4

Poor. Exposed by Hazard to concede the decisive penalty and uncertain throughout. Missed a good first-half chance.

Your rating: 3.10

Ashley Young (left-back)

Phil McNulty's rating: 6

Did his best to get forward to provide an attacking threat but not his day.

Your rating: 4.71

Nemanja Matic (central midfield)

The former Chelsea player drew a block from Courtois in the second half but another who was below par.

Phil McNulty's rating: 5

Anonymous and unable to influence affairs.

Your rating: 4.33

Paul Pogba (central midfield)

Phil McNulty's rating: 5

Only came to life after the break following a strolling first 45 minutes. Should have equalised with a header late on.

Your rating: 4.62

Jesse Lingard (forward)

Phil McNulty's rating: 5

On the fringes and unable to make the impact that he often does on the big occasion.

Your rating: 4.52

Alexis Sanchez (forward)

Phil McNulty's rating: 4

Looks jaded, out of sorts and still nowhere near the player United thought they were getting. Extremely poor.

Marcus Rashford (forward)

Phil McNulty's rating: 5

Looks short of confidence and struggled to get into the game - but nearly equalised only to be denied by Courtois.

Your rating: 4.38

Anthony Martial (73 minutes)

Your rating: 4.66

Juan Mata (87 minutes)
