S'land v United - Player Ratings!

S'land v United - Player Ratings!

Five straight wins. We scored the most goals in the Premier League (tied with Arsenal). We conceded the lowest amount. We won the most games. The best team lead the table. Now we rate their players.

Tomasz Kuszczak: One acrobatic save from Ross Wallace, otherwise almost nothing to do. 6

Wes Brown: A very, very good performance. Great pass to Rooney before the goal and a generally effective attacking contribution. 7

Rio Ferdinand:Chopra, Waghorn... did not matter, he dealt them with ease. 6

Nemanja Vidic: Facing with Sunderland's possibly most dangerous player, he did well to nullify Jones's threat. 6

John O'Shea:Provided good cover for Patrice Evra, not just at the back but in attack, too. 7

Cristiano Ronaldo: Brilliant pass to Rooney before the second goal, magnificent free-kick, mazy runs - nothing special, just his usual fantastic self. 8

Darren Fletcher: Made light work of Sunderland's midfielders, unusually composed in possession. 7

Michael Carrick: Kept the team ticking with launching countless attacks. Neat passing. 7

Luis Nani: Would have deserved a goal for his efforts. Embarassed defenders, linked up well with all of his attacking peers, played really well. 7

Wayne Rooney: Man of the match. Cool finish, incisive passing, great technique. Back to his best very soon again. 8

Louis Saha: A great finish and confidently dealt with long balls and short passes. Precise and sharp, cool with the penalty. 7

Ji-sung Park: Encouraging. His pace is still very much there and demonstrated hunger, vision and intelligence. 7

Gerard Pique: Bored in defence, he often stepped forward to midfield with good runs. 6
