|1||Van der Sar|
Edwin van der Sar – The big Dutchman had very little to do, other than pick the ball out of his net twice. Given little protection by his defence for either goal.
Rafael – Put in plenty of effort and played on manfully, despite suffering a painful dislocated finger during the second half, but the Brazilian was unable to provide the telling final ball when United needed it most.
Nemanja Vidic - Given a tough time by Kevin Doyle, who continues to catch the eye as one of the best lone strikers in the league.
Jonny Evans – Thrown into the match in tough circumstances, and was subjected to a constant aerial barrage from the hosts before retiring injured.
Patrice Evra – Hurtled forward at every opportunity and gave his all in pursuit of an equaliser, but endured a frustrating afternoon.
Nani – Head and shoulders above everyone else. A constant danger to Wolves, and opened the scoring with a superb early finish; his ninth goal of an impressive season.
Michael Carrick – Started brightly, with plenty of positive passing early on, but was soon penned back by Wolves' dominant midfield. Made way for Scholes at half-time.
Darren Fletcher - Another busy display from the Scot, who gave his all alongside Carrick and latterly Scholes, but regularly found himself under heavy pressure.
