De Gea – A massive performance from the Spaniard to silence his doubters once again. Made a series of excellent saves to keep us ahead. 8

Rafael – Yet another admirable performance from my contender for Young Player of the Season. His assist for our second would have made Scholes proud. 8 (MOTM)

Vidic – A proper captain’s performance as he lead the defence through bombardment from the Everton wingers. Dealt with the aerial threats brilliantly. 8

Evans – Equally as good as his captain, young Jonny was strong in the air and prepared to fight for every ball till the final whistle. 8

Evra – A relatively quiet day for Patrice who has been in rich form coming into today. Think I’ll let him off though as he just did enough. 5

Valencia – First time in a while he’s looked comfortable on the ball and actually capable of playing football. Hopefully the first step to a long recovery. 6

Cleverley – Always involved in the first half but faded away as the game drew to a close. Had a fantastic effort tipped over. 6

Jones – A colossal performance from someone who should play a crucial role in us trying to keep Ronaldo quiet. Did all the rights things today so here’s to hoping he can continue this level of performance on Weds. 8

Giggs – What more is there left to say about him? 8

Van Persie – He actually had a pretty bad game and yet somehow ended up with an assist and a goal. Now that is world class. 6

Rooney – Worked hard all game and looked to be on a mission to make amends for our team’s disappointing 4-4 game last season. He showed balls. 8

Subs:
Carrick – Brought on to keep possession and add his usual calming influence to our midfield. 7

Smalling – N/A
