Anders Lindegaard - The Dane might have spent the 90 minutes in an armchair, turkey sandwich in one hand, snifter of sherry in the other; he had that quiet an afternoon. Had no shots to stop and scarcely a counter-raid to launch.

Antonio Valencia- Revelled against Wigan's narrow defensive formation, repeatedly raiding down the right wing in support of Nani. Defended well, but really caught the eye going forward and haunted his former side with a belting goal.

Jonny Evans - Had a comfortable afternoon sweeping up behind makeshift partner Michael Carrick, and looked assured before he was removed at half-time to ensure his fitness. Booked for a hefty challenge on Jordi Gomez.

Michael Carrick - Peerless, even in a makeshift role in defence. His anticipation, coolness and ability on the ball made him a commanding presence at the heart of the Reds' backline.

Patrice Evra - Did well in both defensive roles - left flank in the first half, central in the second - and popped up to play a key role in Park's opener to continue his recent resurgence in terms of assists.

Nani - Worked well in tandem with Valencia down the right flank. Unselfishly opted to pass, rather than shoot, on many occasions, and was removed midway through the second period to preserve him for the rest of the festive period.

Darron Gibson - His first Premier League start of the season, but the Irishman slotted in neatly alongside Giggs. Had one goal-bound effort deflected wide in the first period, but largely kept it simple throughout.
