'If It's Football, It's Vital'

United v Newcastle - Player Ratings!

Edwin van der Sar: Easy game, a couple of confident saves. 6

John O'Shea: Had a couple of shaky moments, especially when passed the ball to Milner inside the box... he got away with it and supplied a decent cross before the sixth goal. 6

Rio Ferdinand: Solid at the back and great attacking contribution with a wonderful finish. 8

Nemanja Vidic: Too easy for the big Serbian. 7

Patrice Evra: Dealt with Milner with ease, had a good day in the office without overexerting himself. 7

Cristiano Ronaldo: Dazzling, magnificent, brilliant, unstoppable. Richly deserved his first hat-trick of his United career. 9

Michael Carrick: A lot of criticism came his way but his precise, crisp passing and great vision made up for it yesterday. He could have even scored had Jose Enrique not made an unlikely clearance after Nani teed our midfielder up. 8

Anderson: His passing was not flawless as usual but played his part. 6

Ryan Giggs: Faded as the game went on but he was behind most of our best moves in the first half. 7

Wayne Rooney: Had he taken half of his chances, he could have outscored Ronaldo. Inventive, sharp, he passed the ball well and set up countless attacks. 8

Carlos Tevez: A well-taken brace, his pace and skill troubled Newcastle throughout. 8

Danny Simpson: Should have scored a goal from one of the couple of chances that went his way. Good attacking contribution after replacing Evra. 7

Darren Fletcher: Played quite well in the last 20 minutes. 6

Luis Nani: Penetrating crosses and good runs, it was what we expect of the talented winger. Hopefully he'll pick up some consistency. Could have scored. 7

I agree with you here, Ronaldo was brilliant last night. I think Tevez could get a 9, he performed verywell, I really like his style.

We also hope we can keep him away from Real, at least for another 5-6 years. I think he got only a nine because it was a totally hilarious Newcastle defense.
