United v Spurs - Player Ratings!

United v Spurs - Player Ratings!

Edwin van der Sar: Perhaps could have done better at the goal but produced a vital, stunning save against Jenas at the end of the first half. 7

John O'Shea: Closed down Malbranque when Evra failed to hold Lennon so deserves praise. His crosses were awful though. 7

Rio Ferdinand: Did his job flawlessly, often did Brown's job as well... 7

Wes Brown: Pique is better in this position it seems. But I still think Brown can play a lot better than this even at centre-back but today he was downright terrible. Two mistakes almost gifted Jenas two goals and could have scored an own goal but luck saved him in the end. 4

Patrice Evra: Started well but then deeply troubled by the lively Lennon's pace. At one point he even slipped, allowing Lennon in and he was quite subdued in attack. A rare off game I think. 5

Cristiano Ronaldo: He was involved in most of our attacks and when he started taking on Lee, the Korean begged for mercy and looked crackered when finally Ramos brought him off. Cool penalty, lucky second, 25 goals in the season so far... Jesus. 8

Owen Hargreaves: Tackled a lot, he launched countless attacks after retrieving the ball. Allowed Jenas in at the start of the first half though. 7

Michael Carrick: Supported the attacks well and he was probably United's best passer but went missing too often. A good performance but he must do more. 6

Ryan Giggs: Wayward at times, his corners were frustrating again but always wanted the ball and tried to dictate the rhythm. 7

Wayne Rooney: A mediocre game. His first touch did not let him down and the penalty was largely down to that, his passes were good but was almost always tackled when he was taking on defenders. His movement was much worse than usual thus he was deprived of goalscoring opportunities. 6

Carlos Tevez: Impressive. Cool finish with the equaliser, fine, crisp passes and good awareness. 7

Paul Scholes: Great to see him back! The ginger wizard passed the ball well and had a promising shot. 6

Anderson: Not much impact. A mistake almost allowed Spurs to equalise but tried to make up for it with running and trickery, launching counter-attacks at the end. 6

Danny Simpson: Brought on to run down the clock, no impact.
