Arsenal v United - Player Ratings!

Today's, well, let's face it, disappointing draw against Arsenal is analysed here in terms of player performances.

Edwin van der Sar: Made a fine save from Gallas and did his utmost to prevent the goals. Strange to say but rarely troubled despite Arsenal's attacking intents. 7

Wes Brown: Did well at the opener and dealt impressively with Tomas Rosicky. Should have done better at both goals. 7

Rio Ferdinand: Would have been an impressive performance but for the two goals as he was culpable for both. 6

Nemanja Vidic: Would have been an impressive performance but for the two goals as he was culpable for both. 6

Patrice Evra: For me United's best performer. Eboue could not get the better of him and apart from nearly scoring an own goal, he was solid throughout. Represented an attacking threat, too and deserved his assist. 8

Owen Hargreaves: After such a long spell on the sidelines it was an impressive performance against one of the best midfields in the Premiership. 7

Anderson: Another impressive performer as he harassed and chased Arsenal players all afternoon and rarely gave the ball away. However, his behaviour should be improved, he was shouting at the referee and at the opponents all afternoon. His rolling theatrical was shameful, too. 7

Ryan Giggs: Often looked lost in midfield but produced the odd moments of brilliance. Rooney should have scored from one of his great passes. I would have brought him off around the 70th minute. 6

Cristiano Ronaldo: He was largely kept quiet by Clichy but when he got rid of his marker he wreaked havoc: an assist and a goal ensures he can't be really criticised. 7

Carlos Tevez: Totally quiet, he was completely lost between Toure and Gallas. With Rooney out wide he had little support though. 5

Wayne Rooney: Shame he wasn't credited with the goal as that would have made it seven consecutive scoring games for him. Still, a decent enough performance, the ball was always safe at him. Should have scored with that header. 6

Rooney would have deserved the goal and a 7 mark. Brown looked rusty for me so I wouldn't have given more than six. I agree that Anderson was out of order but it's annoying that the media quickly jumped on it and wagged their fingers at him. Other teams' players do not get criticised this way. Think of mighty Gerrard: he's a diver and he always berates referees yet he's a national hero and a champion of honor.

you don't think they will write anything bad about saint steven of england? much easier to slate an 19-year-old brazilian boy who happens to play for united... but he still shouldn't behave that way, even if gerrard and tons of others also do.

How can Vidic and Ferdinand both be at fault for both goals? Thought you should have won though.

dazza: i think our central defenders were nowhere to be seen at the first goal which is unbelievable and they watched with their mouths open as the ball bounced around at the second goal... so i agree that they were at fault with both
