Blackburn v United - Player Ratings

Blackburn v United - Player Ratings

Edwin van der Sar: Two great and very important saves ensures that we must say thanks to him. 7

Wes Brown: Seeing Rafael starting ahead of him in Gary's absence must have been tough but he responded with a great performance. Faultless at the back, scored a goal and played a big part in the second. 8

Rio Ferdinand: Strolled through the game after some early difficulties. 7

Nemanja Vidic: Was at the centre of attention at United's goal but it's blown out of the water. Otherwise a solid display and a vital clearance after a great save by Edwin. 7

Patrice Evra: Unspectacular but kept Pedersen totally quiet and contributed to our attacking play. 7

Anderson: Well that was more like it. Had the bit between his teeth and fought for every ball. Also passed it well so a good performance all round. Could have scored but for a Brown save. 7

Darren Fletcher: Solid but unspectacular. Did his job well but should have taken his easy chance. 6

Wayne Rooney: Brilliant. One assist, one goal and a tremendous influence during the entire 78 minutes he got. He's on song - it's a great shame that international games are coming up. 8

Ryan Giggs: Fine performance. Unlucky with his chance but his passing was of top quality and his technical ability unsettled Blackburn very much. 7

Cristiano Ronaldo: Difficult to evaluate to be honest. Fine work at the second goal and could have set up a third but overall he was quite poor. Too selfish and missed easy chances, especially in the second half. 6

Dimitar Berbatov: Long way to go and still no league goal to his name but this was a fantastic showing. His guile and creativity was evident. His ability to spot a little space and send a perfect pass there is absolutely wonderful and should give us plenty of chance to celebrate in the future. 8

Carlos Tevez: Nothing special but worked hard and had a great chance to score but he was unlucky with that. 6

John O'Shea: Replaced Evra with 20 minutes to go and did well. 6

Ji-sung Park: It was all over when he came on but kept the ball well and immediately settled in our passing game. 6

I was amazed by Rooney. He looked in abit of pain against Aalborg, and for Wayne that usually means something serious. I'm still not sure he's 100% but I bet he demanded to play. Anyway, he was fantastic - easily his best display of the season. And, no coincidence - United's too.
