Ivorian defender Eric Bailly displayed a man of the match performance during the community shield match on Sunday, August 08, 2016. He ensured that Leicester City’s attacking force were contained throughout the game as well as making brilliant clearances to the delight of the United fans. Bailly who was playing his first competitive match for United since his transfer from Valencia this summer was regarded as the brightest spot through out the game.
Below are the individual player ratings.
David de Gea
Could have grabbed a deckchair and sunglasses until Marouane Fellaini assisted Jamie Vardy. Kept dependably whenever called upon. 6
Showed decent intent in the final third but frustrated until he picked out Zlatan Ibrahimovic for his fourth assist in eight days. 6
His best performance yet in a United shirt. Shackled Vardy commandingly with pace and power on what was his toughest test yet in red. Man of the match. 8
Steady alongside Bailly, who was the more physical of the two. His intelligence and quiet leadership helped the Ivory Coast international. 6
Another accomplished display from the left-back. His zip down the left was a welcome antidote to the plodding play up until Lingard broke through. 7
Prudent yet ponderous, which is hardly a surprise from a 35-year-old. Might have impressed had he been paired with a more suitable partner but was overwhelmed. 4
Performed with eagerness but was unlikely to effect the game for United from such a deep role and was booed by some United fans after he gifted Vardy an equaliser.
Scored another memorable Wembley goal with a run that illustrated the importance of speed in attack. Utterly unfazed by recent attacking signings and will hope injury is just minor. 7
Never really got going against Danny Simpson and is lacking sharpness. Began to show promise midway through second-half but was soon substituted. 6
Spirited, but careless. His first touch is still infamously heavy and Rooney remains a liability in possession. Leicester capitalised on his sloppiness. 5
Needs more dynamism around him if he is to thrive. Too often isolated yet showed just why United have made him their new figurehead with a fabulous and stooping header. 6
Lacked discipline. 5
Struggled to get involved. 5
Carelessly allowed Ahmed Musa a chance. 5
Energetic on the wing. 6
Came on too late.
