Sporting v United - Ratings

United players will now receive their marks for their performance against Sporting. It's high time to do it as I forgot to rate them after the Everton game...

Edwin van der Sar: He had to deal with powerful shots but saved all with remarkable confidence and composure. 7

Wes Brown: Defensively solid and his only really good cross resulted in the winning goal. 7

Rio Ferdinand: Yet another confident display in the heart of the defence. 7

Nemanja Vidic: Nobody could get past him yesterday.7

Patrice Evra: Same as Brown, without a match-winning cross. Should develop an understanding with Nani to be effective. 6

Paul Scholes: A solid, reliable contribution but nothing special. Clinical pass to Brown before the goal. 6

Michael Carrick: In the absence of Owen Hargreaves, he had to do a mainly defensive job and was equal to it. Nothing special but it was enough... yesterday. 6

Cristiano Ronaldo: Subdued, quiet, lacklustre in the first hour. Sprang to life after his well-taken goal and could have earned himself a higher marking with a bit more luck. 7

Ryan Giggs: Offered very little in the middle, his usual sharpness and vision were nowhere to be seen. 5

Luis Nani: His return was less eventful than Ronaldo's. He's still very inconsistent and yesterday he wasn't on song, to put it mildly. 5

Wayne Rooney: Isolated but worked hard and from one of his passes Nani could have scored. Will be better if we play in a more attacking formation and deploy two strikers. 6

Louis Saha: Not a very successful cameo, he missed a gilt-edged chance to increase our lead. 5

Carlos Tevez: In for Ronaldo, he did very little to convince. He had very few time for it, of course. 5

And where is Anderson? He did not change the world but did as much as Tevez, deserves to be included here :-)

fair results, but i think vds was by far our man of the match, so perhaps an 8 to seperate him from the pack a little

still dont look like you have stepped up the gear you need need to do it soon and take advantage of chelsea's problems

muffdaddy, you're right, hopefully that will happen on Sunday! Would love a 3-0 victory but another 1-0 also suits me fine, to be honest.
