Rating: De Gea rates higher than Ronaldo as United thrash Villareal

David De Gea — 9

The United first choice goalie was solid in the first half and absolutely incredible after the break. Kept the score at 0–0 with several world-class saves, allowing Manchester United to score.

Harry Maguire — 7

A return to form for the Old Trafford skipper after a few truly abysmal performances. Maguire was outstanding tonight, good on the ball and defended calmly.

Fred — 8

Fred superb after the break following a quiet first 45 minutes. The Brazilian’s two crucial interventions helped set up two goals for the Red Devils.

Donny van de Beek — 5

It was rather a disappointing night for Van de Beek who was included in the starting XI ahead of Bruno Fernandes. Barely had a kick before he was replaced in the second half.

Anthony Martial — 2

It was Martial’s forth start of the season, leading the fans to ask why he was starting for the fourth time. You couldn’t even tell that the Frenchman was involved.

Cristiano Ronaldo — 8

The GOAT, the Mr Champions League delivers again to no one’s surprise, scoring in his fifth consecutive Champions League game for Man United.
