Check out our assessments of the United players' performances in the 2-1 triumph at Carrow Road..

David De Gea: A truly accomplished display from the Spaniard, who was flawless from the first whistle. Tested early on by a muscular challenge by Grant Holt, he caught a number of crosses. There were vital saves, too, as he denied Anthony Pilkington with his foot and made diving stops to thwart Grant Holt and Aaron Wilbraham.

Phil Jones: Capable of supplying teasing crosses from the right, he picked out Ryan Giggs twice for openings - one that the veteran smacked against the bar. Also defended with style and steel, it could be argued that the versatile performer's best position at present is at right-back.

Jonny Evans: Showed great composure when placed under pressure by Holt and was unflappable throughout. Harshly booked for a foul on Wes Hoolahan, when the substitute had clearly handled the ball, he won countless challenges and glided forward to start attacks.

Rio Ferdinand: Made important headers away from the danger zone in the first half and cleared following a muddle inside the box from a David Fox free-kick. After his rest in midweek, put in a tireless shift and continues to look every inch a top-quality centre-back.

Patrice Evra: Although he managed to get forward to provide a couple of driving runs, he was largely kept on the back foot by Anthony Pilkington and the winger escaped his attentions to fire against De Gea's foot in the first period. One burst into Norwich territory set up a chance for Danny Welbeck in the second half while one diving header to Paul Scholes showed his commitment to the cause.
