conjure up some magic but it was a tough ask on this occasion.

Wayne Rooney: Came in for some rough treatment from the centre-backs, with Kompany booked for one foul, but held the ball up well with little support. Always looking to spin and move forward, he did his job effectively but, surprisingly, was unable to profit from the additional space when Danny Welbeck came on.

Substitutes:

Danny Welbeck (for Park, 58): Energetic and looked a man on a mission until a crude foul by Nigel De Jong lessened his impact.

Antonio Valencia (for Scholes, 78): Another who was unlucky to lose his place in the starting line-up, he spent much of his time on the pitch in his own half, helping to defend and trying to get the ball back off City when they were keeping it in the corner.

Ashley Young (for Nani, 83): Looked as likely as anybody to work an opening even though he was only on for a short space of time. Immediately fouled to bring jeers from the home fans but he'll be as disappointed as anybody that his injury-time corner failed to reach the danger zone.
