Manchester United Player Ratings vs Bayern Munich - Fellaini off the pace, Vidic excels

Fellaini United

How did Manchester United's players fare in their 1-1 Champions League draw with Bayern Munich? Here are the ratings for David Moyes' side...

David de Gea 7 - Another good game from the Spaniard, who made a number of decent saves but no more impressive than when he made a superb stop to keep out Arjen Robben's curling strike in the first half.

Phil Jones 7 - Performed admirably first at right back up against Franck Ribery, and then as a makeshift left back against Arjen Robben after Alex Buttner was taken off injured.

Rio Ferdinand 7 - Was able to outmuscle Thomas Muller in the Bayern attack and was generally solid throughout despite the pace and movement of the German's attack.

Nemanja Vidic 8 - Dominated in the air and made a number of important blocks before coming up with a stunning header to put United in front in what could have been his final Champions League game at Old Trafford.

Alex Buttner 7 - Didn't offer a huge amount going forward and had a couple of nervy moments up against his compatriot Robben, but played well in tricky circumstances.

Michael Carrick 7 - Kept possession relatively well when United managed to wrestle the ball back from Bayern, and offered much needed protection to the United back line.

Ryan Giggs 6 - Barely touched the ball in the first half as Bayern had most of the ball, and was substituted at half time with a suspected groin injury.

Marouane Fellaini 5 - Too slow, too cumbersome and just not up to the speed of Bayern. Was guilty of giving possession away on a number of occasions before completely losing Bastian Schweinsteiger for the equaliser.

Antonio Valencia 7 - Got up and down the right flank admirably to track the overlapping David Alaba, but also posed a few problems for the Austrian in the final third.

Wayne Rooney 7 - Not his finest night but a solid display from Rooney, who was asked to play on his own as a central striker and worked tirelessly throughout.

Danny Welbeck 8 - Should've buried his one-on-one chance in the first half, but Welbeck was key to United's counter-attacks, offering pace and athleticism that Bayern struggled to deal with at times.

Subs:

Shinji Kagawa 6 - was introduced at half time for Giggs, but failed to really threaten the Bayern defence.

Ashley Young 6 - put in a couple of half decent crosses but didn't have enough of the ball to really hurt Pep Guardiola's men.

Javier Hernandez - wasn't on the field long enough to make an impact.
