be proud to have skippered the side in a match like this.

Nani
Some fans groaned when he failed to convert an Ashley Young cross soon after producing a poor chip when better options were placed in the middle. They'd do well to understand the nature of flair players like Nani, who are always asked to produce something special. That's precisely what he did with the most arrogant of finishes that had the crowd purring prior to being given a rest by the boss after a performance that also included some impressive work in winning possession back.

Tom Cleverley
A spiky display from the midfielder who was often too strong for the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Francis Coquelin. An unfussy footballer, he helped make the side tick with a mature showing that should ensure another place in Capello's England plans for the Euro qualifiers.

Anderson
Always plays the game with a smile on his face - his distracting tactics from free-kicks even raised a smile from the under-siege Wojciech Szczesny. He'll think he deserves too exists for Rooney's bullet set-pieces and will argue the striker was off target with another after he'd left the field.

Ashley Young
So unlucky not to win man-of-the-match as this was a sensational display by the confident winger. Always willing to take on, and beat his man, he carved out numerous openings and was unlucky not to get a treble himself. His two firecracker finishes were his first goals for United - he'll do well to hit one as sweet as the opener which was a goal the very second it left his boot.

Wayne Rooney
Talk about hitting the ground running. Has scored in each of the three league games so far and yet United's leading marksman often drops
