Edwin van der Sar


Probably his quietest afternoon of the season as Stoke failed to trouble United's defence.

Patrice Evra
Not much to do at the back, Evra bombed forward in the second half as the visitors tired in the face of United's dominance.

Nemanja Vidic
Stoke's powerful strikers have troubled more than a few Premier League defenders this season, but they've rarely faced a centre-back of Vidic's quality.
 
Jonny Evans
His best performance in a Red shirt. Unflappable alongside Vidic, and not afraid to mix it with Stoke's big forwards. Sir Alex will have been delighted with his confident display.

John O'Shea
Filling in at right-back to help deal with Stoke's aerial threat, Sheasy enjoyed a busy opening 45 minutes more in attack than defence but nearly scored an own goal following Delap's first monster throw-in.

Michael Carrick
Quietly effective first half that burst into life with a clinical left-foot shot to put United two up before the break. Asserted his authority after the interval as he took up more of an attacking remit.

Darren Fletcher
Dominant in midfield, Fletch enjoyed a highly industrious hour on the pitch and thoroughly deserved the standing ovation afforded him by the Stretford End.
