Player Ratings from Manchester United 0-0 Southampton

David De Gea (8)

Produced two vital saves from Romeu and Long to prevents the Saints from taking a shock lead at Old Trafford. Authoritative display.

Ashley Young (7)

A threat going forward but the unwelcome headline created was his elbow on Tadic.

Victor Lindelof (5)

Even though Long had not scored a goal since February he managed to unsettle the Swede throughout the 90 minutes.

Phil Jones (6)

One of the first names on the team-sheet when he is fit and firing. Needs to be more assertive within the box though.

Luke Shaw (6)

Offered a lot going forward but delivered little. Decision making became amateurish on occasions.

Nemanja Matic (5)

Wasteful with three long-shots and looked tired towards the end. Question is can United afford to rest him?

Paul Pogba (5)

Would’ve been higher if his ridiculous idea to tap in Matic’s legal effort never came off. Denied United the three points through that touch.

Juan Mata (6)

Predictably fruitful for the Red Devils in possession. Lacked the killer instinct.

Jesse Lingard (6)

Diverted a simple header wide and should’ve won a penalty off a Yoshida hand-ball.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan (2)

First league start in over two months and blew it. Talent is there to see. Head is not in the right place.

Romelu Lukaku (5)

Could’ve opened the scoring early on with a header from ten yards. Head injury in 14th minute overshadowed the miss.
