De Gea – Didn’t have much to do besides the occasional back pass. 5

Jones – Really impressed today with a display shadowing his early season form. Quality cross for the winner as well. 7

Evans – Dealt with the Sunderland strikers well and was excellent late on a we tried to hold on to possession. 7

Rio – Commanding at the back as always, his experience was key in us securing yet another clean sheet. 7

Evra – A real captains performance. Lead from the back, won every challenge and drove his team forward with every attack. 8

Valencia – Beat his marker almost every time and criminally unlucky not to go away with an assist. 6

Carrick – Instumental in the middle. He dictated play to his liking and even looked to go forward himself on a few occasions. 7

Scholes – Magnificent as always. His class was especially highlighted late in the game as he kept hold of the ball. 8

Young – Quiet and sloppy with the ball, his consistent wayward shots from outside the box were his only real notable highlights. 5

Giggs – A brilliant performance which saw him keep hold of the ball instead of his usual silly flicks and tricks. More of the same please. 8

Rooney – Scored the winner with a decent finish but missed another open goal. The story of his season. 6


Nani – Came on and kept hold of the ball. Nothing fancy. 6
