Red Devils pick up first win in four with 2-0 win over the Eagles…
Manchester United player ratings
- 01 David de Gea – 7
Made a very good save from Cameron Jerome when the score was still 1-0, and was very solid during the rest of the match, too.
- 12 Chris Smalling – 5
Doesn’t offer anywhere near the same attacking threat down the right as Rafael, and rarely ventured forward – even when United were dominating possession.
- 03 Patrice Evra – 8
Crucially won the penalty that RVP converted, and also assisted Wayne Rooney for United’s sublime second.
- 05 Rio Ferdinand – 7
Granted, Ferdinand badly lacks pace, but his ability to read the game defensively was on show for all this evening. A very composed, classy performance.
- 15 Nemanja Vidic – 6
Relatively poor. His passing was weak, but he did contribute to his side keeping the crucial away clean sheet.
