United v Barcelona - Player Ratings!
Edwin van der Sar: His kicking is suspect but still confident with crosses. Rarely troubled though. 6
Owen Hargreaves: Wonderful defensive job, even had the strength to go forward occasionally. Kept Iniesta and Henry totally quiet. 8
Rio Ferdinand: Yet another brilliant performance. Eto'o could hardly breathe between our centre-backs, not a single mistake. 9
Wes Brown: Magnificent. I never realised he's capable of playing at such a level. Crucial tackles, interceptions, headers. Faultless. 9
Patrice Evra: He had trouble containing Messi but there's not a single full-back in the world who would have done better in that task. Bombed forward at will. 8
Ji-sung Park: Tireless. He's like that Duracell rabbit. And he should have scored. 8
Paul Scholes: He fired us into the final of the Champions League. Enough said. 10
Michael Carrick: Underrated job which he did well. Looked a bit tired though, otherwise he would have exerted more authority on the game. 6
Luis Nani: Always a threat though his decision-making needs to improve a lot. Should have scored at least twice, he had really good chances. His corners were dangerous throughout. 7
Cristiano Ronaldo: Kept and passed the ball well, he was quite selfless. Sometimes ran into blind alleys, that's true but a composed display. The others should have converted one of his crosses or passes. 7
Carlos Tevez: Fergie described him as a 'terrier' and that's what he was. Ran, ran and when he had enough of that, he ran a bit more. Kept the ball magnificently and set up chances for others. He could have scored after a magnificent one-two with Ronaldo. 8
Darren Fletcher: Added steel to our midfield in the closing stages. 6
Ryan Giggs: Hardly ever touched the ball, I can only remember a carelessly given away ball. 6
Mikael Silvestre: No impact.
