The Spaniard's heroics kept United in the competition as he delivered a solid performance again up against Bayern. Was well protected by his defenders but stood up when called upon.
Foolishly gave away possession to the visitors with needless long balls out of the back but was strong in defence, pre-empting a number of incisive Bayern passes.
Was trusted at right-back after an impressive run of form in the centre of defence and proved his full-back credentials with a number of lung-busting shuttles down the flank.
Is leaving the club at the end of the season and delivered a glimpse of why United will miss him. Was a towering presence at times, meeting almost everything in the air before opening the scoring with a stunning header. Heroic for the hosts.
Had the unenviable task of stopping Robben and delivered with a far more mature performance than many thought him capable of. A little sloppy in possession but defended well before going off with an injury.
Has lost more than a yard of pace but still retains all of the class. Provided United with a much-needed calm head on the ball before being replaced by Kagawa at half time.
Sat deep in midfield and looked to keep hold of the ball under relentless pressure from the Bavarians. Kept it largely neat and tidy and played Welbeck in with a fine long pass.
Pressed Alaba from the start and worked well with Jones on the right flank, looking to double up on the Austrian. Still too wasteful and was lucky to stay on the pitch after a rash challenge.
Always looked like he was struggling in the face of Bayern's pressing in midfield, losing possession from the 3rd minute. Played in Rooney with a nicely weighted ball on the edge of the area with the sides level but was otherwise muted, and should have been tighter to Schweinsteiger ahead of the equaliser.
Incredibly unlucky to have his fine strike past Neuer ruled out for an initial high boot only five minutes in but then incurred the wrath of his team-mates for wasting a one-on-one against Neuer, unbelievably opting to chip it into the keeper.
Chased down a weak backpass from Rafinha and nearly carved out a chance for himself. Was otherwise kept quiet until seeing a 20-yard effort blocked by Lahm on the 34th minute. Worked incredibly hard in the second half, turning defence into attack.
Forced into a desperate clearance early on with Rooney putting him under pressure and easily gobbled up a fairly simple effort from Welbeck on the 33rd minute. Stopped the striker again soon after to keep the sides level. Could do little to stop Vidic's stunning header.
The young Austrian dealt with the ongoing threat of Valencia and Jones well, holding his own physically against the pair. Got forward and linked up well with his midfield colleagues.
Nearly played Neuer into trouble less than 10 minutes in with an unconvincing backpass to the keeper in what was a nervy start from the Brazilian. Got forward again and again but couldn't connect with a cross.
Looks a transformed player deep in Bayern's midfield, holding the ball up and maintaining possession superbly. Blocked Rooney's powerful effort shortly before half time but lost Vidic for United's opener.
Struggled early on with Welbeck and nearly let the England striker in after only a few minutes. Should have been punished by the forward shortly before half-time after slipping under pressure, but just about got away with it.
Drifted away from Jones on the left channel and provided an option in the middle. Typically creative, the Frenchman peppered United's area with a number of dangerous balls but was left frustrated.
Looked to build from the back each time and won every long ball pumped forward from United's defenders. Kept Welbeck under control when the striker juggled the ball in the area shortly before the half hour mark. Will miss the second leg after a cynical foul on Hernandez late on.
Probably the visiting player United fans were most keen to see given the club's rumoured interest in the midfielder, and he delivered a typically classy performance, with plenty of movement off the ball to stretch the game from the middle.
Threatened early on with a dangerous whipped effort that just curled past De Gea's far post and ran directly at United. Very nearly gave the visitors a second but dragged his effort wide.
A near enough unstoppable presence in the centre of the park, the 29 year-old drove through midfield and added urgency to his side's possession play. Equalised with a stunning half volley and deserved the goal before being dismissed for two yellow cards.
Cut a frustrated figure early on as the hosts manfully kept the visitors at bay in and around the area. Was replaced by Mandzukic after an ineffectual showing.
