hour, but it was a destructive hour’s play from the 37-year-old and a fine finish for his goal.
Wayne Rooney Very lively. He deserved a goal because his creativity and effervescence was crucial to this convincing victory. Approaching his best? Certainly. Just needs to add goals. But he was devastating here.
Dimitar Berbatov When he’s this good there’s no stopping him. An all-round performance, he didn't just bag the goals. Fully deserved his hat-trick and orchestrated almost every United attack.
Darron Gibson (on for Carrick 25) Stepped in and helped keep United’s constant attacks ticking over. Solid display.
Fabio (on for Evra 46) He did well coping with David Bentley when he came on at half-time. Never looked threatened.
Michael Owen (on for Giggs 56) Lively and always sought to be involved.
