David De Gea -

The Spaniard had few opportunities to showcase his shot-stopping skills, and instead demonstrated admirable communication and handling, as well as starting plentiful attacks with excellent distribution.

Chris Smalling - Impressed in a busy display. Very solid against the ever-dangerous Shaun Wright-Phillips and always willing to lend support to Antonio Valencia down the right flank.

Jonny Evans - Superbly dealt with the hosts' aerial menace and looked excellent throughout. Evans will, however, rarely get a better chance to open his goalscoring account than the header he sent against Radek Cerny's crossbar.

Rio Ferdinand - Picked up a rare booking for dissent, but demonstrated magnificent reading of the game and was always first to the ball. Showing the benefit of a sustained run of involvement.

Patrice Evra - Endured a tricky first half against the energetic Jamie Mackie, but dusted himself down and put in a far better shift after the interval.

Antonio Valencia - Game by game, the Ecuadorian gains form and menace. Flung in a fine cross for Rooney's headed opener and terrorised Armand Traore with his physicality and pace.

Phil Jones - The boy's cult hero status continues to grow. He may be a moonlighting defender, but Jones dominated midfield in tandem with Michael Carrick, pouring forward in attack and thrice coming close to a third goal of the season.
