Edwin van der Sar
Had little to do in the match, although claimed bravely at Robinho’s feet in the first half. Alert until the final whistle, he and Evra combined to keep out Dunne’s late shot.

Rafael
Unfazed by the occasion, Rafael didn’t temper his attack-minded game. Defensively he was sound, too, although he was rarely tested one-on-one. Unlucky to be booked for throwing the ball in the air.

Patrice Evra
Faced a tough test against lightning-fast Shaun Wright-Phillips but managed to contain the England winger well. Also bombed forward and threatened down the left flank.
