United v Fulham - Player Ratings!

United v Fulham - Player Ratings!

Edwin van der Sar: One fine save from Danny Murhpy, otherwise (and I have to write the following phrase exruciatingly often) rarely troubled. 6

Wes Brown: Those crosses again... Did quite well down the right but for heaven's sake, he should really find someone with at least every fifth cross. And by someone I mean one of his teammates. 6

Rio Ferdinand: A quiet evening for him, dealt well with Kuqi. 6

Nemanja Vidic: Another good, er, night at the office. 6

Patrice Evra: Solid but unspectacular. Got substituted at the interval, reports suggest he's got some illness - that would explain an unusually quiet performance. 6

Cristiano Ronaldo: Paul Konchesky was no match for him on the right and his brace sealed the points for United. Irresistible once again. 8

Owen Hargreaves: This guy is getting better and better. He's much more confident in possession than most English players, has got tremendous energy and a good pace, too. Effective performance yesterday with some nice passing displayed. 7

Anderson: Destined for great things, that's looking more and more obvious. His short passes were combined with brilliant over-the-top balls, all precise and accurate, carving open the opposing defence. 7

Ryan Giggs: His best performance for a while now. One particularly brilliant cross to Tevez should have resulted in a goal but for Niemi's intervention. 7

Carlos Tevez: Difficult to judge. Constant threat for Fulham, the defenders simply could not cope with his pace, aggression and mobility. Yet his finishing left a lot to be desired: after all, he could have scored four or five goals. 7

Wayne Rooney: Quiet for a while than growing visibly frustrated. A bit rusty after his latest injury and guilty of missing two very good chances. Will get better. 5

John O'Shea: Replaced Evra at the interval. His cross to Ronaldo for the second goal was brilliant, he deserves a high rating for that. He was willing to go forward on the left though the end product wasn't exactly pure gold in most cases. 7

Louis Saha: Replaced Rooney. He looked a lot less rusty than at Bolton or against Sporting yet missed a great chance to add a third goal. Getting sharper and sharper. 6

Michael Carrick: In for Ferdinand, he made no real impact. 5
