Lindegaard – Really poor with the ball at his feet. Not much he could do about the goals though. De Gea in goal from now on please, Fergie. 6

Rafael – Should have done better for the first goal we conceded. Did try to attack and get the team back in the game with some runs into the opposition half but crosses lacked accuracy. 5

Rio – Stupidly played the opposition onside during the first goal build up. Redeemed himself by bagging an assist for the equaliser. 6

Vidic – No silly mistakes this time from the captain. Made some important tackles as the team went up looking for a goal, thus leaving the defence exposed. 7

Evra – Genuinely looked forward to writing a positive thing about him today after a decent first 50 minutes. Then he slipped and ruined it for himself. Idiot. 5

Valencia – Got a quality assist for our first but too often he took the ball, ran across the touch line and crossed it to nobody. 6

Carrick – He’s now our main midfield man so he’s got to do better than that. We know it, Fergie knows it too. Let’s just hope Michael does as well. 5

Cleverley – Half decent. Tried speeding the tempo up after we went a goal down but it just didn’t happen for him today. 5

Kagawa – Another midfielder who couldn’t do much right today. Touch looked off and creativity was lacking. He’ll be back to his best soon though. 5

Welbeck – Isolated out wide. He’s not a winger so I obviously don’t like to see him there. Worked hard to make up for it. 6

Van Persie – Scored three very good goals but his penalty will not go down well with the manager. He’s got to sort himself out because on another day we could have lost this and it would have been his fault. 8

Subs:

Scholes – Nearly got an assist with his first touch. Took control of the game better than our three man midfield could. 8

Nani – Set up the winner with a wonderful cross. Who knew he could take corners? 8

Hernandez – Really impressed me with his touch and movement today. Lovely. 7
