David De Gea – 7.5

Manchester United almost made sure of a place in the knockout stage of the Champions League by beating Benfica 2-0 at Old Trafford on Tuesday to make it a perfect four wins in Group A.

An own goal by Benfica's 18-year-old keeper Mile Svilar on the stroke of halftime and a spot-kick from Daley Blind in the 78th minute were enough for United who struggled at times to find their fluency.

Svilar, the youngest keeper in Champions League history, was unfortunate as a Nemanja Matic shot struck the post and bounced into the goal off his back.

Earlier Svilar, whose error had gifted United a 1-0 win when the teams met two weeks ago in Lisbon, had saved a weak penalty from United's French forward Anthony Martial to keep his team on level terms.

United's Dutch defender Blind made no such mistake with his spot kick after substitute Marcus Rashford was brought down by Andreas Samaris.

But who impressed for Manchester United against Benfica?
