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

Anders Lindegaard:

The Dane enjoyed a mixed game, making a magnificent early save from Aguero but then spilling the Argentine's shot for City's second goal.

Phil Jones: Took an early clattering from Smalling and seemed slightly shaken thereafter. Made a few errors in possession but his energy up and down the right flank was vital.

Rio Ferdinand: The veteran defender was given a rough ride by the impressive Sergio Aguero, but made some vital interceptions, especially late on when they were needed most.

Chris Smalling: A welcome return after a bout of tonsillitis, and linked up well with Ferdinand. Looked calm and composed for the most part, and will now hope for a run of fitness to nail down a starting berth.

Patrice Evra: The skipper led by example by throwing himself into challenges and charging forward in support of Nani wherever possible.

Antonio Valencia: The Ecuadorian dominated Aleksander Kolarov down their flank, flinging in a brilliant cross for Rooney's opener. Somehow referee Foy declined to award Valencia a second-half penalty after his marker's blatant foul.

Michael Carrick: Once again, the cool, collected head in the centre of midfield. Kept possession at key times and dictated the Reds' attacking tempo in tandem with Giggs.
