Edwin van der Sar – The Dutchman didn’t have a lot to do but he’ll be delighted with a late save low to his left which thwarted Jack Rodwell and ensured a clean sheet.

Rafael – The feisty right-back was possibly United’s best player early on, winning battles with Cahill, Saha and Fellaini, and almost creating a chance for Rooney.

Wes Brown – A solid display was summed up by a tremendous last-ditch tackle on Saha in the first half, denying the former Reds striker a one-on-one with van der Sar.

Nemanja Vidic – The returning centre-back was instrumental as United limited the threats from Saha and Yakubu. A timely boot frustrated Cahill’s bid for a consolation.

Patrice Evra – The Frenchman’s attacking flank-play helped to break down Everton’s dogged defence, especially when his deep ball to the far post led to the opening goal.

Antonio Valencia – Gave Leighton Baines problems, not least when his shot deflected off the left-back for 3-0. He created the first goal by heading down Evra’s cross.

Darren Fletcher – An industrious display at the heart of midfield was capped by arguably his best goal for the club, a stunning volley from Valencia's knock-down.

Michael Carrick – Looked good alongside Fletcher and also connected well with Rooney at times. He saved his best pass to link the ball with the back
