Roma v United - Player Ratings!

Roma v United - Player Ratings!

Edwin van der Sar: Made one crucial save from Vucinic's header and he was confident throughout. 7

Wes Brown: Sometimes negligent a bit, he wasn't at his best but nullified the threat of Mancini. 6

Rio Ferdinand: Though he's been lauded as the man of the match, I think he was uncertain in the first half, looked shaky and committed some mistakes. In the second half, he was faultless though. 7

Nemanja Vidic: Absolutely superb - until he had to be substituted due to injury with only 30 minutes gone. 7

Patrice Evra: The usual assured performance. Taddei was nowhere to be seen and his awareness meant that nobody got behind him. 7

Paul Scholes: Brilliant. I thought he should not start - how very wrong I was. His range of passing was vital in our possession play and he provided the assist for Ronaldo with a sweet cross. 8

Michael Carrick: Has a hugely understated role which he performed to perfection yesterday. Wonderfully disciplined in defence, precise and sharp in passing. Should have scored. 8

Anderson: Disciplined and hard-working but far from his best. Maybe the occasion was still too big for him. 6

Ji-sung Park: An incredible amount of running and work, he provided cover for the defenders and support for the attackers. Nothing spectacular but did his job finely. 6

Cristiano Ronaldo: Relatively quiet game until his wonderful header. What a goal! As Roma opened up in the second half, he set out to torture them and could have scored another. 8

Wayne Rooney: Showed admirable patience and discipline on the left, occasionally wandering inside and creating havoc as was demonstrated at the first goal. His second was a poacher's goal and he rarely scores one of those. Should have scored another and was vital to our defensive set-up and in keeping the ball so effectively. 8

John O'Shea: Replaced Vidic and, surprisingly, played at the centre - surprisingly well. In fact, he was faultless. 7

Owen Hargreaves: His introduction simply killed Roma, they didn't have a really threatening attack afterwards. Huge work on the right side of midfield. 7

Carlos Tevez: Apart from a scuffed shot, not much impact in the 10 minutes he got. 6

Very harsh ratings. Rio was immense last night and thoroughly deserved at least a 9. Why did OShea get just a 7? Park did the hard work which is why he was in the team. However how did Anderson get a 6. He was very poor and how did Vidic get the same as Rio, Evra and OShea when he only played 20+ mins.
