Barclays Premier League 21 December 2011 – Fulham 0-5 Manchester United

Anders Lindegaard 7 – The Dane had little to do in the first period but produced a series of fine saves after the break. He continues to impress when given the opportunity.

Phil Jones 6 – A hugely disappointing night for the young defender after coming off early after a blow to the face.

Chris Smalling 7 – The ex-Fulham man was fantastic on his return to the club, made some vital blocks in the second-half.

Jonny Evans 7 – Another efficient performance from the Northern Ireland international who continues to grow in confidence.

Patrice Evra 6 – The French defender was rarely troubled but we did not see much of him as an attacking threat.

Antonio Valencia 7 – Another lively display from the Ecuador international who looked bright in attack and adapted well to his defensive duties.

Ryan Giggs 8 – The veteran midfielder ran the game from the middle of the park and looked as fit as any player on the pitch. Scored.

Michael Carrick 7 – The Red’s in-form midfielder produced another fine defensive performance from the middle of the park.

Nani 7 – Always a threat with his ability to create and score goals. Scored

Wayne Rooney 7 – Rooney produced another lively performance and rounded off a great display with a fine long-range effort. Scored

Danny Welbeck 7 – The home-grown striker was full or running and added another goal to his tally for the season. Scored.

Subsitutes:

Ashley Young 5 (Jones 20 min) – A frustrating night for the winger who failed to get into the game before hobbling off before the hour mark.

Ji Sung Park 5 (Young 58 min) – Offered good support in the midfield.

Dimitar Berbatov 7 (Welbeck 76 min) – The Bulgarian added class to proceedings and produced a fine finish in the last minute of the tie. Scored.
