Man Utd player ratings: Dean Henderson prevents Man City from scoring more as Anthony Martial falls flat in attack

MANCHESTER UNITED missed out on a place in the Carabao Cup final with a 2-0 defeat to Man City.

John Stones and Fernandinho scored at Old Trafford to book City's place at Wembley against Tottenham.

It marks yet another semi-final defeat for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men.

But the Norwegian will now look to move clear at the top of the Premier League table instead.

Here, SunSport's Anthony Chapman delivers his Man Utd player ratings.

DEAN HENDERSON – 7

Made a number of fine saves to keep United in the game and prevent the scoreline from being bigger, including a brilliant dive to deny a scorcher from Riyad Mahrez.

But he could have done better when John Stones snuck in to fire home City’s winner and was slow to react to Fernandinho's effort.

AARON WAN-BISSAKA – 6

Recovered well after being targeted by Raheem Sterling early on.

But couldn’t really get out of his own half to make an impact up the other end.

VICTOR LINDELOF – 6

Held his defensive line fairly well to keep City’s slick passers at bay.

But looked tired as the game went on after returning from injury.

HARRY MAGUIRE – 6

A commanding presence, he orchestrated his fellow defenders well.

Once or twice a bit forgetful in his pressing duties though.

LUKE SHAW – 5

Was given a tough battle against Mahrez, who constantly cut inside on his left foot.

As a result, he found himself tucked in centrally and was often a passenger on the break.

FRED – 5

Tenacious as ever but lacking that extra bit of quality to get a real foothold in the middle of the park.

Showed his frustration at times as the likes of Ilkay Gundogan and Phil Foden passed him by with precise passes.

SCOTT McTOMINAY – 5

Ran hard for his side to keep the pressure on City’s midfielders.

But looked awkward at times in a technical battle against Kevin De Bruyne and Fernandinho.

PAUL POGBA – 5

Wasn’t able to work his usual magic as he kept getting pulled out wide.

Looked slow at times but was always available for a teammate’s pass.

BRUNO FERNANDES – 6

Clever passing and movement as he put in a typical performance as the No10.

Was targeted constantly by Fernandinho and made sure the ref knew about it, eventually resulting in the City veteran getting a rare yellow card.

MARCUS RASHFORD – 5

Found space well between the channels to split City when going forward.

But didn’t create too much for his team when he did get a go on the ball.

ANTHONY MARTIAL – 4

Stayed very central but was always half a second off the pace.

Couldn’t get the better of Stones or Ruben Dias, who tiki-taka’d their way around his pressing and looked blunt throughout.

SUBS

Mason Greenwood (for McTominay, 74') – 5

Came on to change shape of United's attack but was fairly anonymous on the right flank.

Donny van de Beek (for Fred, 87') – N/A
