Edwin van der Sar: A spectacular save from a Danny Murphy effort is the pick of some fine saves. Good solid job. 7

John O’Shea: Played a part in the third goal and comfortably accomplished his defensive duties. 7

Rio Ferdinand: Solid afternoon’s work. Reliable. 7

Wes Brown: Shaky. Looked a bit uncomfortable at centre-back despite this being his supposedly preferred position. 6

Patrice Evra: Good crosses, good tackles. The usual assured performance. 7

Ji-sung Park: Quality goal and his pace and aggressivity troubled Fulham all afternoon. Hopefully getting back to his best. 7

Owen Hargreaves: Spectacular free-kick, precise passing, important tackles. What we expect of him and a bit more. 7

Paul Scholes: Man of the match I thought. His passing was accurate and could have scored three times had he taken his chances. 8

Luis Nani: He did not let them a moment’s peace. Dribbling, pace, crosses, shots, everything. He’s in fine form. 7

Louis Saha: Missed a great chance. A bit quiet but his workrate allowed the others to find space. 6

Carlos Tevez: He was fouled before the first goal. Great movement, lots of quality passes, he relished Rooney’s usual role. 7

Wayne Rooney: Replaced Saha and clearly enjoyed the game. Not much impact though. 6

Cristiano Ronaldo: Replaced Tevez. Tricks, tricks and more tricks but as with Rooney, very little impact. 6

Anderson: Came on for Nani. Had very little time. 6
