United v Chelsea - Ratings!

Here are the marks for United players after today's 2-0 win over Chelsea.

Edwin van der Sar: Had nothing to do, nothing at all. Chelsea could not trouble him in the first half hour so what chance did they stand with ten men? None at all. 6

Wes Brown: Solid defensive display and got forward well, playing a part in the first goal. 7

Rio Ferdinand: Confident and relaxed throughout the game though it's true he did not face much difficulties. 7

Nemanja Vidic: Solid and reliable as ever. 7

Patrice Evra: Should have won a penalty and John Obi Mikel was sent off after a challenge on him. Should have got forward more often. 6

Cristiano Ronaldo: Not his best game but he was a threat to Chelsea. Malouda and Ashley Cole were both playing deep to deny him and they were largely successful. 6

Michael Carrick: A very, very good display. Tackled a lot and at least two of his passes should have ended with a goal, only his teammates wasted the chances. Man of the match methinks. 8

Paul Scholes: Not bad but should have been a bit more courageous with his passing. He always chose the safety option. 6

Ryan Giggs: Could have scored two so he's guilty of profligate finishing but his assist was of real quality. 7

Carlos TÚvez: Well-taken goal, full of running, always a threat. His best game yet. 7

Wayne Rooney: Frustrated throughout and lucky not to sent off. Should have opened the scoring with a brilliant curling effort though. 6

Louis Saha: Won a penalty, converted it and could have scored another. He missed that chance and his fall was too theatrical for a better mark than 6.

personally i think Brown deserved to be MoTM, an excellent display from him

you cannot deny saha dived for the penalty, then missed an easy chance to slide rooney in for 3 - 0....4/10

I would like to hear any objections to the statement the Saha dived for the penalty. Even with that you were denyed a clear cut penalty when Joe Cole took down Evra.

cry as much as you like everyone...your just scared that united is winning while not playing that well, and the best is yet to come, unlike chelsea who've been promising this for the last 2 years...i guess theirs isnt coming... joe cole shouldnt be on that field today, and the saha thing, there was contact on the foot and with the extended arm of ben haim. he did overreact but it was a penalty with the contact made. if you ask me he could even stay on his two feet. that doesnt mean its not a foul.

I think the 12th player deserve a full 10 pts for the red card and the penalty decision. Great job to him for ruining an entertaining match.
YagamiRED
It was entertaining but one-sided until the red card. From then on, it was simply one-sided.

joe cole on evra was not a penalty at all gunnerkid
daspecial1
not a penalty? the Joe cole on evra tackle??? for heavens sake daspecial1....
alexpant
joe cole on evra was a defo penalty, then his foul on ronaldo should have been a red, bt i have to admit saha DID dive, there was minimal contact, but we still should of had a peno in the first half so it was fair.
