Tomasz Kuszczak Despite playing behind a makeshift back four, Tomasz only had to make one save, flying across his goal to tip over a free-kick. A confidence-boosting clean sheet.
Darren Fletcher Deployed at right-back and turned in a typically disciplined performance. Tackled and tracked well and wasn't scared to bomb forward on occasion.
Wes Brown Probably expected to be tested more by a Hammers side who have scored plenty of goals this term. Rarely stretched and never uncomfortable.
Gary Neville Did well to keep Zavon Hines quiet before his day was cut short by a groin injury and he was forced from the field. Hopefully he won’t be out for too long.
Patrice Evra A terrific performance from the left back. He was involved in many of the Reds’ best moments in the first half and came close to scoring after the break.
Antonio Valencia Grabbed his fifth goal of the season, an excellent return, and he was a constant menace down the right flank, particularly in the second half.
Darron Gibson Repaying Sir Alex’s faith, this was a solid display. But it’s his goalscoring – boy can he hit them – that sets him apart and his goal was excellent.
Paul Scholes A passing masterclass, and his first-half strike that set things off wasn’t too bad either. Says he’s not at his best, but on this form he’s still a gem.
