Here is how their players matched up…
GK) David De Gea, 7
The Spaniard had little to do, but was solid as always.
CB) Marcos Rojo, 7
Since arriving in the summer the 24-year-old has fast become the best centre-back at the club.
CB) Chris Smalling, 6
The England international looks a lot more comfortable when opposition teams play the ball in the air.
CB) Jonny Evans, 3
He didn’t play particularly poorly but the stupidity of spitting on Papiss Cisse gets the defender marked down.
RWB) Antonio Valencia, 5
Failed to get the balls in to the box that were needed to service Marouane Fellaini.
LWB) Ashley Young, 8
Scored the winner, and has been a revelation at wing-back this year.
