Player-by-player review by Steve Bartram...

David De Gea –

Will pick up some long-awaited credit for his display. No blame attached for any of Chelsea's goals, and capped a solid all-round display with two brilliant, point-saving stops in injury-time. The save from Mata's free-kick was staggering.

Rafael – United's best player in the first half; first to every ball and always positive with possession. Unhappy to be substituted as United chased the game, but can be proud of his contribution once again.

Rio Ferdinand – Inexplicably booed throughout by the home support. Unfortunate to deflect home Chelsea's third goal but rarely looked troubled by the home attack.

Jonny Evans – Helpless in scoring the opening goal at the wrong end, but otherwise looked calm and solid. Anticipated well and kept Torres quiet for the most part.

Patrice Evra – The Frenchman might have done better in Chelsea's opening goal, but always looked to make amends by powering forward and duly won the Reds' first penalty.

Antonio Valencia – A threatening outlet all afternoon, even when he moved to right-back. The Ecuadorian ran all day long in a sweat-soaked shift and played a major role in Chicharito's late leveller.

Michael Carrick – The calmest head in the United midfield as the Reds tried to pick their way back to parity. Seldom wasted possession and always gave his team-mates an option.
