David de Gea  – Suppose blame him defence for West Bromwich Albion’s goal and he try wella to make some saves from the hosts as they been dey pressure United late in the second half. Unlucky not to collect another cleansheet. I give am 6.5.

Antonio Valencia – He deserve standing ovation for him performance at right-back. Been dey solid through out and hardly wey im be dey out of position. He comot because of hamstring problem after 65 minutes. We hope say he go recover soon. I rate am 7.
