Player reviews v Sunderland

Check out our player reviews following the 1-0 win at Sunderland...

David De Gea: Had almost nothing to do during the course of the game, bar organising his defence and fielding a couple of long-range efforts from the hosts.

Phil Jones: Perhaps his best performance of the second half of the season. Looked sharp, alert and lively throughout, making a series of impressive challenges and curling a superb ball in for Rooney's all-important goal.

Jonny Evans: A surprise presence at the heart of defence after putting aside the pain of his ankle injury, and an outstanding performer against his former club. A powerful, proactive presence, as he has been throughout the season.

Rio Ferdinand: Despite limping from the early stages, the veteran defender turned in another fine display to cap a fine season to mark his 10th year at the club.

Patrice Evra: The Frenchman continued his fine run of recent form, defending resolutely and charging forward in attack whenever the opportunity beckoned.

Antonio Valencia: Gave John O'Shea a torrid time before the ex-Red's departure through injury, and remained a menacing outlet throughout the course of the afternoon.

Michael Carrick: Another typically unflustered, integral display from the midfielder, who dictated United's attacking tempo and kept the ball moving with great intent.

Paul Scholes: Like Carrick, the veteran was in fine form in the centre of the park and lent his attacking support at every opportunity - even crashing a low shot against the post in the dying stages
