Edwin van der Sar - The big Dutchman's involvement was all about organising his defence and starting attacks until the last few minutes, when he made a superb save from Benni McCarthy.
John O'Shea - Had little to do defensively, so Sheasy was freed up to lend Antonio Valencia attacking support, which he did effectively and with plenty of gusto.
Jonny Evans - Under the microscope with both Rio and Vida injured, but the young Northern Irishman remained as unflappable as ever and turned in a superb performance.
Wes Brown - One of the Reds' outstanding performers. Unruffled by Rovers' attack and completely calm in possession, Wes' return to the centre of defence was a triumphant one.
Patrice Evra - Inadvertantly set up Berbatov's opener with an errant shot, but largely enjoyed a quiet afternoon as Blackburn rarely threatened down the flanks.
Antonio Valencia - Eye-catching work from the Ecuadorian, who turned in another sweat-soaked shift down the right flank and was a constant menace to Rovers.
Michael Carrick - Dictated much of United's attacking play as Anderson sat back, and the England international continued his upturn in form with an impressive display.
Anderson - Sat deep for long periods as he sought to kick-start United's tempo, and put in a great cross for Rooney to bag the killer second goal.
Nani - More frustration for the winger, who was constantly surrounded by visiting defenders and midfielders. In a sticky patch form-wise, but he continues to chance his arm.
Dimitar Berbatov - A frustrating first period for the Bulgarian, but he had the last laugh
