Player ratings: Manchester United 1-1 West Ham United

Herrera shone as Darmian struggled David de Gea: 6 There wasn’t much that de Gea could have done to prevent Cheikhou Sakho’s goal. He was a bystander for most of the game but made one key save to keep the score level late on. Antonio Valencia: 6 Got forward well and offered natural width down the right, allowing Juan Mata to cut inside, although his delivery was inconsistent. Defensively, coped fairly well with his marking duties on Dimitri Payet. Marcos Rojo: 7 He’s a car wreck at left-back, but in the centre of defence Rojo is perfectly serviceable. He was thoroughly decent again...
