I've watched almost every single game he played for ManUtd and I've seen some really bad tecnical displays from him. Also his speed is overrated as he is nowhere near as quick as Rooney.
So I suggest:
Dribble Accuracy: 77
Long Pass Accuracy: 75
Long Pass Speed: 77
Ball Control: 76
Top Speed: 83
His ball control could be a tad lower, as could his long pass accuracy. His dribble accuracy is surely lower than this also?
His top speed, however, is massively underrated by you. He's much, much faster than Rooney. If you watched him against Real Sociedad you would see him outpace Griezmann and against Arsenal he showed similar pace to Gibbs. On a long run he caught up with a ball that seemed impossible. I recall him keeping up with Agbonlahor and he outpaced Sturridge earlier this season (and straight after Evans lost a very similar run against Sturridge).
Rooney looks lighter and quicker than before, but against Arsenal it became clear that he's on Sagna's level.
