United v Villarreal - Player Ratings!
Edwin van der Sar: I was worried he might get cold though the weather wasn't too bad. Nothing to do, absolutely nothing. 6
Gary Neville: Very active but I don't think he had one really good cross... 5
Rio Ferdinand: Stroll in the park for the big man. 7
Jonny Evans: Looked confident and had little trouble with Villarreal's rare attacks. What a shame he hasn't scored. 6
Patrice Evra: Good game, his pace and dribbling caused endless problems for the Spanish side but his end product lacked on occasions. 7
Ji-sung Park: The Korean was twice fouled inside the area - no penalties given. He missed a good chances and drifted inside far too often, leaving Gary Neville alone on the wings. 6
Darren Fletcher: Dominated the midfield, he put on yet another good Champions League showing. Faded a bit for the second half but still tackled everyone, everywhere. 7
Owen Hargreaves: Timely interceptions and good passing. Seemed to be a bit short of match fitness so Fergie was right to substitute him after an hour. 7
Luis Nani: Very inconsistent. Made a few bad decisions, especially in the second half after a good display in the first half. 6
Wayne Rooney: Pulled the strings finely and it is not his fault that Tevez missed the perfect chance presented to him by our Wayne. 7
Carlos Tevez: One brilliant shot aside it looks like the Anfield experience shook him. He was far too uncertain in front of goal and everywhere else. 5
Cristiano Ronaldo: One great pass, one great chance and injected a lot of momentum. 7
Anderson: His positioning when Villarreal were attacking was quite poor and though he used his pace to relatively good effect his passes were often astray. 6
Ryan Giggs: Too little time to make a real impact after brought on for Tevez. 6
