Edwin van der Sar - 7: Getting back to his best after a few disappointing performances at the end of last season and the beginning of this campaign. Made two smart saves in the first half and was reliable when called upon.

Gary Neville – 6: Still finding his feet after a long spell on the sidelines, Neville was solid and did his best to get up and down the right-hand side. Looked tired and was replaced by Brown in the second period.

Nemanja Vidic – 7: Steady and solid, Vidic led a United back-line which did not have too much work to do at Old Trafford this evening.

Jonny Evans - 7: Stepped in for Ferdinand and turned in a reliable display. Improving in every game for United and showing signs that he has as bright future at the top level.

John O’Shea – 7: The versatile O’Shea played well at left-back. He made the first goal after making something out of Nani’s near post corner and had some nice touches in possession throughout the match.

Cristiano Ronaldo – 7: Ronaldo is still some way from last season’s form, but he produced a lively display on the right wing. Key to most of United’s early attacks, his second half free-kick produced Berbatov and United’s second goal after Boruc parried the powerful effort into the Bulgarian’s stride.

Darren Fletcher – 6: Another steady performance from the Scotland midfielder, good in possession and always keen to get involved. Should have scored at the end of the first half but blazed an excellent chance over the crossbar.

Anderson – 6: A neat and tidy performance from Anderson. Not involved directly in any of the goals but rarely gave the ball away and consistently ensured the side’s other flair players saw plenty of the ball.

Nani – 7: Started slowly, but grew as the game progressed. His corner led to United’s opener and he was full of energy throughout the ninety minutes, central in many United attacks and putting some good balls into the box.

Wayne Rooney – 8: On fire at the moment, Rooney was desperate to be involved and is showing huge levels of confidence. After countless efforts on goal and with an effort wrongly ruled out for offside the England striker was not to be denied and he sealed the win with a well-placed third goal.

Dimitar Berbatov – 8: Berbatov is now coming into his own at Old Trafford. Scored two goals and although replays showed they should both have been ruled offside, he was in the right places at the right times and made no mistakes with his finishing. Also did a lot of all-round work for the team.


Tevez – 7: Came on full of energy and determination after his recent frustration. Laid on the third goal for Rooney. Brown - 6: Did not have much work to do as he came on at right-back with Celtic hardly pressing forward. Park – n/a: On for the last ten minutes to give Ronaldo a breather.


Artur Boruc - 4: It has been an inconsistent start to the season from Boruc and he put in a poor performance tonight. Should have done better with Ronaldo’s free-kick, but only parried which allowed Berbatov to tap the ball home. Also fumbled later in the half and Rooney almost punished him.

Mark Wilson - 5: Was given a torrid time by Ronaldo and Nani on occasions and still doesn’t look fully fit. Didn’t feature at all in an attacking sense, although it must be said, neither did his team for the whole second half.

Stephen McManus – 6: Despite not being directly at fault for any of the goals, McManus and his defensive colleagues were unable to prevent United from easing to victory.

Glenn Loovens - 6: Initially Loovens impressed me and for much of the game he looked composed and solid against United’s star-studded attack. He had a lapse when giving Rooney too much space for the third goal however, and at this level you get punished.

Lee Naylor - 6: Naylor put in a decent shift. He worked hard to get up and down the left to offer support and he did his best to curtail the efforts of Nani and Ronaldo, not a task any full-back in world football looks forward to.

Shunsuke Nakamura – 6: When Nakamura got on the ball he looked like the most likely player to create something for the Celts. Some neat passes when Celtic had their strong start early on, but like his team, faded as the game progressed.

Scott Brown - 4: Brown’s contribution to the ninety minutes did not feature much more than consistently fouling United’s players as they got close to the Celtic penalty area. His foul on Anderson led to the second goal and quite how he managed to avoid a yellow card for persistent fouling is beyond me.

Gary Caldwell - 7: A confident performance from Caldwell in the midfield holding role. Proved to be an excellent asset breaking up the play in front of the back four and was neat and tidy in possession. Probably Celtic’s best player, which says a lot for their all-round performance.

Barry Robson - 5: Anonymous throughout the game. Couldn’t get on the ball and spent the majority of the match behind the ball as United dictated proceedings for two-thirds of the ninety minutes.

Aiden McGeady - 6: Lively early on when the Bhoys started strongly. Tested Van der Sar with a good strike from the edge of the box and was not overawed by the occasion.

Scott McDonald – 5: Worked doggedly on his own up front but was left without any service or support from his team-mates.


Maloney – 5: Was unable to influence proceedings, a surprise non-starter. Hartley - 5: Main contribution was a petulant foul on Nani. Sheridan – n/a: On for the last ten minutes for the experience.

Man Of The Match: Wayne Rooney.

Berbatov Mulai Nyetel...!

Saat menjamu tim asal Skotlandia di Old Trafford, Manchester United menggunakan formasi 4-4-2, dengan memasukkan nama Dimitar Berbatov (foto, kanan) dan Wayne Rooney (foto, kiri) di lini depan, sementara Carlos Tevez duduk di bangku cadangan. Celtic harus tampil tanpa target man Jan Vennegoor dan Georgios Samaras. Karenanya, Scott McDonald tampil sebagai ujung tombak penyerangan.

Pertandingan berjalan tanpa ada gol untuk waktu yang lama, meski tetap diwarnai aksi saling serang dan mengancam. Kebekuan terpecahkan tepat pada menit ke-30 melalui kaki Berbatov. Gol ini bermula dari sepak pojok John O'Shea. Dan kedudukan bertahan hingga peluit babak pertama berbunyi.

Enam menit berselang sejak dimulainya babak pertama, Berba kembali memaksimalkan bola muntah tepisan Artur Boruc yang mencoba menahan laju tendangan Cristiano Ronaldo. Berba berhasil menyambar bola dan menggandakan keunggulan menjadi 2-0.

Rooney yang berkali-kali terus menyerang akhirnya memetik hasilnya. Kerja sama apik antara Nani, dan Berba berujung gol melalui kaki Rooney yang sudah berada pada posisi serang. Untuk ketiga kalinya, Boruc memungut bola dari gawangnya sendiri.

Dengan hasil maksimal ini, Manchester berhasil mengumpulkan tujuh poin dari tiga kali pertandingan, sementara Celtic baru memetik satu poin. Di grup yang sama, Grup E, Villarreal berhasil mencukur tim tamu AaB dengan skor 6-3. Meski sama-sama mengumpulkan tujuh poin, Villarreal berada di bawah MU.

Manchester United: Edwin Edwin van der Sar; Gary Neville (Brown '59), Jonny Evans, Nemanja Vidic, John O’Shea; Cristiano Ronaldo (Park '82), Darren Fletcher, Anderson, Nani; Dimitar Berbatov (Tevez '59), Wayne Rooney.
