Edwin van der Sar - The Dutchman looked comfortable and confident in a relatively quiet game. With just a handful of half-chances to deal with, a clean sheet was never far from reach.
Rafael - The Brazilian looked confident on the ball and was typically ambitious in his attacking play. His cross to set up Chicharito’s goal was excellent. The youngster has made the right-back his own.
Rio Ferdinand - Cool, calm and confident. Three words to describe Rio in a nutshell. The England captain barely broke a sweat as he continues to rekindle his outstanding partnership with Vidic.
Nemanja Vidic - The United captain was typically bullish in the tackle and showed his strong aerial presence from free-kicks and corners.
Patrice Evra - The left-back was typically ambitious going forward, showing excellent movement and awareness to score at the back post in first half added time.
Nani - Showed flashes of brilliance on the wing, from where he regularly cut inside with one eye for a shot on goal. Will be happy with a good days work.
Michael Carrick - Looked confident and combative, inter-changing passes with Fletcher in the heart of the midfield. Substituted for Chicharito after 65 minutes.
