United v Liverpool - Player Ratings!

United v Liverpool - Player Ratings!

Edwin van der Sar: Had an easy save from a Gerrard shot at the start of the second half but I struggle to remember anything else. 6

Wes Brown: Embarassingly skinned by Babel on one occasion, he handled the threat of the Dutchman quite well. And he scored a GOAL! I mean, Wes Brown SCORED!8

Rio Ferdinand: Really stupid yellow but there you go. Put Torres in his pocket again. 7

Nemanja Vidic: Did what he always does: did not let anyone go past him. 7

Patrice Evra: Composed, focused, solid. Took Kuyt off the park though that's not a great achievement in itself. 7

Cristiano Ronaldo: Difficult to mark. Contributed little to the build-up but could have had a hat-trick and eventually scored the all-important second goal. 8

Anderson: Could have had an assist but his shooting needs a lot of work. Not at his best but still passed the ball around superbly, working seamlessly with Scholes and Carrick. 7

Michael Carrick: Showed Gerrard how do dictate from the midfield. Probably had one bad pass, no more, good tackling, brilliant passing, fantastic sense of rhythm. Not good enough for England? You'r e having a laugh. 9

Paul Scholes: I thought he would be useless in such a tight, intense game with his fading stamina and pace. Then he goes on to be man of the match, along with Carrick. His passing was a joy to behold. 9

Ryan Giggs: Quiet though Reina almost fumbled one of his crosses into his own net. Did a solid job. 6

Wayne Rooney: Ended up with two assists after missing about 35 chances to score, yet again. Brilliant all-round work, shielded and passed the ball well, beat defenders with ease but just could not get past Reina. Should have had a penalty in the fifth minute when Carragher kicked him from behind as he missed his chance. 8

Luis Nani: Replaced Giggs. An assist and a goal and a wonderful piece of acrobatics again. He can do the job when it matters most. 8

Carlos Tevez: Replaced Anderson. Missed a great chance but not much impact. 6

Yeah Brown was alright, I think a 7 would seem more realistic but I guess its his first goal in 3 years. Nani's gol was beautiful.

He deserved that 8, an opener against Liverpool is worth the triple of other goals.

Anderson needs to start scoring. Man U's midfielders always score.

Ronaldo could get a 6, he wasn't good enough, like Rooney.
