Cudicini (5) â€“ A few smart saves but couldâ€™ve done better with all three goals particularly the first when his step/sway to the right as the free-kick was struck meant that he couldnâ€™t adjust in time as the ball disappeared past him to the left.
Corluka (6) â€“ Sound defensively, unable to get forward to help Lennon as he normally does.
Assou-Ekotto (6) â€“ Looked a class act a lot of the time but again didnâ€™t do much going forward.
King (6) â€“ Doesnâ€™t seem as comfortable on the right as when on the left of the centre pairing. Poor clearance for second goal.
Bassong (7) â€“ Much more assured than of late, probably because Rooney and Berbatov provide less of a physical encounter. Great block on the line in first half.
Lennon (6) â€“ One excellent run that included a penalty shout but otherwise subdued. Didnâ€™t give Evra his normal runaround.
Palacios (5) â€“ Very low-key for him with mistimed tackles and passes. Most un-Wilsonlike.
Jenas (7) â€“ Replaced Palacios at half time and immediately played with authority and composure. Will threaten Huddlestone for his place next week.
Huddlestone (5) â€“ Struggled with the pace and aggression of Scholes and Anderson, played at too low a tempo and seemed to require an extra touch too often.
Keane (5) â€“ Hard to be too harsh on him as he was played well out of position and had Oâ€™Shea and Fletcher double teaming him most of the time but having said that, he had no influence on the game whatsoever.
Defoe (6) â€“ Great goal but found space rarely even when dropping deep.
Crouch (7) – Caused most of our problems to them, almost all in the air inevitably. Hit the bar with one header and put another just wide.
