United v Chelsea: Ratings
Edwin van der Sar: He was commanding throughout the game and might have even blocked Carvalho's header had Saha not tried to head it out. 7
Gary Neville: He worked well with Ronaldo on the right and gave Ashley Cole a hard time. Kept Robben quiet after the Dutchman's introduction. 7
Rio Ferdinand: He was solid and confident but it must be said that Shevchenko did everything to make his life easy. 7
Nemanja Vidic: The Serbian defender was impressive again, he simply took Drogba off the park. 8
Gabriel Heinze: I was suprised he had got the nod ahead of Evra but lived up to the task. Shame that Ronaldo failed to convert his fine cross. Faded in attack for the latter part of the match. 6
Cristiano Ronaldo: The Portuguese winger was figthing an enthralling battle with Ashley Cole but we must admit, regretfully, that the former gunner came out on top. No end product again... 6
Paul Scholes: Influential in the first half, faded after the interval as Chelsea took the game to United. He did not pose a threat to the goal. 6
Michael Carrick: Man of the Match for me. He managed to handle Ballack and Lampard on his own and disposessed the latter in the build-up to our goal. His tackling was impressive this time. 8
Ryan Giggs: He was torturing Geremi in the first half and picked out Rooney before Saha's goal. In the second period, he tucked into the middle supporting Carrick and offered very little in attack. 6
Wayne Rooney: His pass to Saha was just perfect and he was influential in our best attacks. He failed to dribble his way past Carvalho and Terry, though. 7
Louis Saha: The Frenchman put his Glasgow woes behind him with an inch-perfect shot but spurned very good chances at 1-0. I can't decide whether he was wrong to try head out the ball at the equaliser. 7
Darren Fletcher (sub): Late introduction, no impact.
John O'Shea (sub): Same goes for him.
