United v Boro - Player Ratings!

Find out who was our man of the match against Middlesbrough on Saturday!

Edwin van der Sar: Faultless at the goal and made a fine save at Cattermole's shot. Otherwise rarely troubled. 6

Wes Brown: Did well on the right, it's well worth noting that Downing had to drift in to the middle to make any impact on the game. 7

Rio Ferdinand: Mistake at Aliadiere's goal, otherwise a quiet afternoon for him. 6

Nemanja Vidic: Also guilty of sloppiness at Boro's goal, few problems otherwise. 6

John O'Shea: Found life difficult against a lively Tuncay Sanli. Should have claimed an assist but for Ronaldo firing straight at Schwarzer. 6

Luis Nani: Brilliant goal then put Downing under pressure and forced that tragicomical mistake that allowed Rooney to score. A menace all afternoon with good passing and anticipation. 8

Owen Hargreaves: A very encouraging return. Won the midfield battle against Rochemback and Cattermole hands down but sometimes guilty of giving the ball away carelessly. Will cut that out with picking up more match fitness. 7

Anderson: Always looked for and created space, usually exploited it effectively. Good passing but his tackling is not the greatest. Brilliant pass to Tevez before the third. 7

Cristiano Ronaldo: Often neglected good opportunities to play in teammates but his pace and trickery caused problems for Boro even though he wasn't his usual effective self. 7

Carlos Tevez: A brace though the second, coming off Taylor's arm, can be considered fortunate. He was always available and always wanted the ball though looked slow in thinking at times. 8

Wayne Rooney: Man of the match clearly and distinctly. Displayed predatory instincts at his goal and showed fantastic skill and awareness to set up Tevez for United's third and fourth. That back-heel was just magnificent, he was at his explosive best. 9

Darren Fletcher: On for Hargreaves, he played better than in Kyiv. He might start at the Emirates as Fergie will surely look for more steel in midfield so Darren should prepare himself. 6

Ryan Giggs: Not much impact really though his passing was flawless. I wonder if his experience will earn him the nod on Saturday. 6

Gerard Pique: No impact whatsoever, Boro did not look even remotely threatening when he replaced Ferdinand. 5
