Hamann rates both sides

MAN UNITED


GOALKEEPER

David de Gea was under pressure when he arrived at Man United, but now, the Spaniard is the best goalkeeper in the Premiership by a 
long way.

Hamann's rating: 
9 out of 10

DEFENCE

They have a lot of injuries, and the young defenders don't look too solid.

Rating: 5

MIDFIELD

Ander Herrera is doing okay but Michael Carrick has made the big difference. His return is why United are getting the 
results now.

Rating: 7½

ATTACK

Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie are back in form. I wouldn't say they are the best in the Premier League but they are very strong.

Rating: 9

LIVERPOOL


GOALKEEPER


Simon 
Mignolet 
looks 
shaky and 
lacks
confidence.

Rating: 6





DEFENCE


Players keep getting changed, which contributes to the porous defence.

Rating: 6

MIDFIELD

No structure 
there, really.

There are not enough players who can make a difference going forward or backward.

Rating: 6

ATTACK

How many 
goals have the forwards scored among them? 
I'm being very generous with 
my rating here.

Rating: 3
