ManUtd.com assesses how each Manchester United player performed at Wolves...

David De Gea: A 10th consecutive start and the continuity is helping the young Spaniard to enjoy some consistency in his game. Not tested until diving to deny Michael Kightly and Steven Fletcher in quick succession in the second half, which showed his concentration levels are top notch.

Rafael: Tenacious and got forward at will to support Antonio Valencia down the right. Should have picked out Javier Hernandez when his early cross evaded everybody and survived half-hearted penalty appeals after showing more desire to win a 50-50 ball with Matt Jarvis inside the box. One first-time pass down the line to Valencia was excellent and it was his cross that allowed Javier Hernandez to head in his first goal.

Jonny Evans: Will be overjoyed with his first goal for the club after a long wait and he snapped up the opportunity like a seasoned striker. Alert throughout, composed in defence and a majestic pass to Valencia led to the third goal. His defensive work is his day job, though, and one clever reading of the play to snuff out Jarvis' pass was also impressive.

Rio Ferdinand: On guard from the very first whistle, he was in control against Steven Fletcher and resolute throughout. Able to play under no real pressure following the sending off and indulged himself with a fabulous crossfield pass to Valencia, United's main attacking outlet.

Patrice Evra: A quiet display from the skipper who did his defensive duties with minimum fuss and, although getting forward freely, he did not contribute too much of note in the attacking third. A neat header infield in the first half summed up his organisation and efficiency and he'll have busier afternoons.
