We evaluate the United players' derby displays at the Etihad Stadium..

David De Gea: Could do nothing about the close-range winner from Vincent Kompany and was a virtual spectator otherwise. Made one safe catch from a Gael Clichy cross and made a late diving save to thwart the same player.

Phil Jones: Given a severe examination at right-back and was muscled off the ball by Yaya Toure on a couple of occasions but he also made fine interceptions at times. Overhit one cross when afforded a rare amount of space and was booked for a lunge on Gareth Barry but made a goal-saving tackle to deny Samir Nasri late on.

Chris Smalling: Lost Kompany for the vital goal from a corner which was a shame considering his all-round performance. Blocked a David Silva shot and made fearsome tackles on Carlos Tevez and Pablo Zabaleta. Skinned by Toure in the closing stages but deputised for Jonny Evans with a lot of heart.

Rio Ferdinand: Headed balls away all night and nodded the first corner out with determination. Showed composure to control and fire one pass wide to Nani but was caught a couple of times in the frantic finale, with one error letting in the powerhouse Toure for a chance. Handled Sergio Aguero well.

Patrice Evra: Forced a corner in the first minute and another seven minutes later and played with fire. Unable to repeat those forward forays until the closing stages but displayed courage to fly into a couple of aerial duels. Beaten by the slippery Nasri on a couple of occasions but wasn't often caught out defensively.
