Van der Sar – 8. Rarely tested, but tidy when called upon, and prevented the
home side going 1-0 up after Evra’s lazy pass.
Rafael – 7. Didn’t put a foot wrong, a player really growing in confident and
Smalling – 7.Has impressed in every game since joining the club.
Vidic – 7. Solid, but never 100% without Ferdinand’s guidance at his side.
Evra – 6. Ineffective going forward, and almost gave away a goal.
Scholes – 8. Calm, assured, at his ease anywhere in world.
Carrick – 7. Much improved recently, defensive midfield may turn out to be
his best position.
Nani – 6. Lacked usual threat, and didn’t last long.
Fletcher – 8. Energy, guile, vision and the opening goal. This position
seemed to suit him. Man of the match.
Obertan – 8. Another youngster discovering confidence and his own style of
play. Scored a cracker!
Berbatov – 6. Isolated as the lone striker, grew increasingly frustrated. May
still not have forgiven Fergie for substituting him against Spurs.
Park (for Nani, 29) – 7. Bright, assisted Obertan’s goal. Continued from
very impressive weekend display.
Bebe (for Fletcher, 62) – 7. Full of running, and took his goal well.
Fabio (for Evra, 80) – 6. No time to make an impact.
Not used: Kuszczak, Brown, O’Shea, Hernandez.
