Tomasz Kuszczak - A quiet night for the Pole, who endured a couple of nervy moments but scarcely had a shot to save.
Ritchie de Laet - Impressive stuff from the 21-year-old, who enjoyed plenty of action, prevented Wolves' rare forays down the flank and also made a seamless switch to the centre of defence.
Michael Carrick - The midfielder-turned-central-defender was outstanding. He couldn't have wished for an easier evening, but his cool head and passing out of defence was a joy to behold.
Nemanja Vidic - Enjoyed his running battle with gargantuan striker Stefan Maierhofer, and popped up with a powerful header to grab his first goal of the season.
Patrice Evra - Toiled up and down the left flank all evening, providing a threat to Wolves' beleaguered defence and allowing nothing to pass down his side.
Antonio Valencia - Another evening full of running for the Ecuadorian. While his crosses were frequently cut out, he atoned with a quite stunning third goal.
Paul Scholes - Neat, tidy and unflustered stuff from the little master, who pulled plenty of midfield strings without ever being sternly tested by the visitors.
Darron Gibson - Impressive work against his former loan club. Although he couldn't cap his display with a goal, his set-pieces set up the first two and his tough tackling dominated the midfield battle.
Gabriel Obertan - Plenty of trickery and pace from the Frenchman, who was denied an impressive first-half goal by Marcus Hahnemann.
Dimitar Berbatov - Although he endured much frustration with his final pass, Berba set up Valencia's strike with an outrageous piece of control and hooked pass.
