Check out our assessment of each Red in the 4-0 win over Aston Villa...

David De Gea: Tested in the opening exchanges by Andreas Weimann but had little else to do, apart from showing his concentration levels are always high by tipping over a header by Villa substitute Emile Heskey.

Rafael: Didn't feature at Wigan but returned with his usual vim and vigour, with one backheel to Antonio Valencia straight from the Copacabana beach. A cut-back supplied Wayne Rooney with a chance and his only blip was allowing Weimann to muscle him off the ball for a Stephen Ireland opportunity. Otherwise outstanding, his tackling was sharp and he combined superbly with Valencia down the right.

Jonny Evans: Composed from the outset and his passing out of defence was largely spot-on. Did overhit one cross from an unfamiliar right-wing position but a fine ball to Valencia for another Rooney chance provided further evidence of his assured distribution and, of course, Paul Scholes would have been proud of Evans' pass that allowed Nani to slip in a late fourth.

Rio Ferdinand: Never seems to have a bad game and remains one of the classiest performers in the Barclays Premier League. Reads the game tremendously and always a calming influence, he was in control throughout. A sublime interception and run forward led to Valencia going close to adding to the scoreline.

Patrice Evra: Supplied the centre that allowed Danny Welbeck to get the crucial second goal before half time. Also delivered an inviting cross into the path of Valencia, only for the winger to get his shot all wrong. Displayed bravery and passion for the occasion by winning a battle with Ciaran
