Manchester United took on Chelsea in an FA Cup semi-final at Wembley on Sunday evening but they were well beaten by their opponents. David De Gea made two errors and Express Sport have taken a look at how every star performed for the Red Devils.
Man Utd player ratings vs Chelsea
GK: David De Gea – 3
This may well have been the end of De Gea as first-choice goalkeeper at Old Trafford after one error and one howler to gift Chelsea a 2-0 lead.
DR: Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 5
Was the man in the United defence Chelsea targeted and I’m afraid he didn’t pass the test. He has plenty to learn but the potential is there.
DC: Victor Lindelof – 6
Looked the most efficient in defence and bright with the ball at his feet. About the only person in the backline who can hold his head high.
DC: Eric Bailly – 5
Had his match ended early after two head collisions in quick succession, the second with Harry Maguire.

DC: Harry Maguire – 5
Not a great game for the United captain. That was underlined by a lack of communication with Bailly in a collision which saw his team-mate stretchered off with a head injury. Scored own goal.
DL: Brandon Williams – 4
Made an unforgiveable error for the second goal against Chelsea but he definitely has potential to challenge Luke Shaw in the future.
MC: Nemanja Matic – 5
Chelsea’s midfield dominated and Nemanja Matic did everything he could almost single-handedly.

- Two Solskjaer decisions which proved he could manage Man Utd
MC: Fred – 3
Performances like this underline the fact United need to add someone like Jack Grealish to their ranks. Fred has had a decent season but he makes far too many sloppy errors on the ball.
AMC: Bruno Fernandes – 6
Was at the centre of everything good United did albeit it wasn’t much. The Portuguese needed more help at Wembley.
ST: Daniel James – 5
Looks off the pace and it isn’t a surprise given how little football he has played since the restart. Failed to create much with his team-mates.
ST: Marcus Rashford – 5
Looked lively but needed more suuport going forward. Had a good opportunity at the start of the second half to get his side back into the game.

Man Utd substitutes
Anthony Martial – 6
Didn’t get into the game as much as he would have wanted but will be rightly annoyed he didn’t start.
Mason Greenwood – 6
Couldn’t make the difference although he gave the side more energy in the second 45 minutes.
Paul Pogba – 6
A marked improvement on Fred in the midfield but Chelsea stopped him pulling the strings as much as he would have wanted to.
Odion Ighalo – N/A
Tim Fosu-Mensah – N/A
