Ratings by Nick Coppack

David De Gea: Made a fine reflex save in the first half and then was kept on his toes throughout the second period without ever having to stretch himself. A confident, competent performance.

Phil Jones: Perhaps United's brightest spark. His bustling forward runs remain a real highlight of his play, as do his wholly-committed, crunching tackles. Looked hungry to impress.

Rio Ferdinand: Rarely tested on the ground against a Galati side whose best chances came from set pieces. Did well to recover and get a touch on a goalward-bound shot in the first half.

Jonny Evans: A solid showing for much of the match from Evans, who played as big a part as anybody in United's clean sheet. Unlucky to be booked in the first half.

Fabio: Stormed forward when he could, including one particularly memorable first-half run that saw him reach the goal-line. Improving all the time.

Antonio Valencia: Scored United's first goal and seemed to enjoy a licence to roam across the front line in the early stages. Often cut inside, allowing Phil Jones space to charge down the flank.

Anderson: With Wayne Rooney often dropping deep, much of the attacking responsibility fell on Anderson's shoulders. That's a tough ask for anybody in the Champions League and the Brazilian struggled to assert himself on the game.
