Brilliant Rooney – Manchester United Player Ratings From Their 3-1 Win Over Bournemouth

The Red Devils grab three points in their last game against AFC Bournemouth but failed to surpass Manchester City, finishing in the top-four due to goal difference. A very improved display by the team saw them leading in the first half with Wayne Rooney scoring his 100th Old Trafford goal.

Goals from Wayne Rooney, Marcus Rashford and Ashley Young sealed the three points for Louis van Gaal’s side in the rearranged fixture from Sunday. A Chris Smalling own goal took the gleam off the win in injury time.

 

David De Gea: 7

De Gea had nothing much to do against Bournemouth. Did his job well when needed to.

 

Antonio Valencia: 7

Vanlencia has certainly improved his game a lot this season. He was quick on the right flank and also assisted Marcus Rashford’s goal.

 

Chris Smalling: 7

Again a very decent game by the English defender. Strong and composed at the back, Smalling called it a day. Except for the own goal, of course.

 

Dailey Blind: 6

The Dutch international seemed more comfortable against the Cherries. Blind was beaten many times but managed to get back into the game well.

 

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson: 6

The youngster had a fine game after returning to the starting XI. Was quick on the left side and supported Anthony Martial throughout.

 

Michael Carrick: 6

The English midfielder was steady and exactly the man his team needed against a pacy strike force.  The veteran player showed a decent display against Bournemouth which included a stunning 25-yard long shot which unfortunately hit the crossbar.

 

Juan Mata: 7

The Spanish playmaker had a decent game as he was well involved in most of the attacks. He had his part in United’s first goal. Mata showed some great signs of aggression in the game which he lacked before.

 

Wayne Rooney: 8

100th Old Trafford goal for the skipper was the highlight of Tuesday’s game. Other than that too, Rooney played tremendously well. Wayne Rooney also setup Ashley Young’s goal.

 

Jesse Lingard: 6

Lingard worked hard against the Cherries and made a few great runs forward. He has seen much better days.

 

Anthony Martial: 8

The Frenchman was dangerous for the opposition as usual. Assisting a goal and creating chances at Bournemouth’s penalty area, Martial’s performance was his business as usual.

 

Marcus Rashford: 7

Rashford managed to get a goal off of a fine pass. His finish and dribbles are much more mature than a player of his age is capable of. His dummy for Rooney’s goal was very impressive as well.

 

Substitutes:

Ander Herrera: 4 (Mata, 75’) – No impact.

Memphis Depay: 3 (Rashford, 78’) – No impact

Ashley Young: 6 (Martial, 83’) – Came on late and got a goal to his name.
