Doing a Manchester United Player Ratings from a game becomes even harder when very few of The Red Devils superstars had a game to remember. Crystal Palace must still be trying to figure out why they did not score against a shaky Manchester United team, who were lucky to walk away with a point from Selhurst Park tonight.
As Louis Van Gaal dwells on his tactics for the next game, we look to assess the performance of United players in our Crystal Palace vs Manchester United Player Ratings, which sees high praise for the Palace wingers, in particular Yannick Bolasie.
Manchester United Player Ratings vs Crystal Palace
David De Gea – 7.5 – Best part about United today with 4 crucial saves.
Matteo Darmian – 5.5 – Given a torrid time by Zaha, booked and taken off in second half.
Chris Smalling – 6.5 – Zaha had Smalling booked as well, apart from that United man had a solid game.
Daley Blind – 5.5 – Ran riot by Dweight Gayle on aerial duels.
Marcos Rojo – 6 – Bolasie gave him a lesson on dealing with powerful and skilled wingers.
Bastian Schweinsteiger – 5.5 – One of his quietest games in United jersey so far.
Morgan Schneiderlin – 6 – Cabaye had his numbers, made crucial tackles late in the game.
Juan Mata – 6 – Crated two chances for his teammates, but they failed to capitalize.
Ander Herrera – 6 – Had a brilliant chance to finish a chance in first half but he missed his kick.

Wayne Rooney – 6 – One of his brightest games in recent weeks, yet far from effective.
Ashley Young – (66′) – 6.5 – Made 3 crucial clearance playing at right back.
Marouane Fellaini – (69′) 6 – He was a factor in United’s attack but wasn’t enough.
Jesse Lingard – (79′) – 5 – His movements threatened to create chances, but did not come through.
