Manchester United vs Stoke City 5-0 Players Rating


Van der Sar: 6.0-
Did not look convincing coming off his line but really had nothing to do between the posts today.

Evra: 6.5-
Gave away possession far too easily in the first half but rebounded with a good showing in the last 45 minutes.

Vidic: 6.5-
Could have had an undisturbed picnic at the back today in what was a relaxing afternoon.

Evans: 6.5-
The youngster made his second start of the season and looks like a keeper with his solid, steady play.

O’Shea: 6.0-
Looked shaky deputising for Gary Neville this afternoon as he almost headed Delap’s throw into his own net in the 11th minute.

Park: 7.0-
He was a bundle of energy down the flanks today was dangerous whenever he touched the ball.

Carrick: 8.0-
Took his goal extremely well as he blasted the ball past a helpless Sorensen in the 45th minute.

Fletcher: 7.0-
Flexed his muscles in the midfield and controlled the lanes in which Manchester United attacked through.

Ronaldo: 8.5-
Was fortunate that his first goal inexplicably went straight through Sorensen’s grasp to open up the scoring but his second was a real beauty. He was absolutely devastating from set pieces today.

Tevez: 7.0-
Failed to find a goal today although not through any lack of effort but his goal drought extends to seven matches.

Berbatov: 7.5-
A hint of handball on his goal in the 49th minute but did well to beat Sorensen at the near post.

SUBS: Welbeck (63”) 7.0, Gibson (63”) 6.0, Manucho (75”) 6.0


Sorenson: 4.0-
A howler by the Stoke City goalkeeper gifted Man Utd’s first goal of the match and he never looked comfortable after that.

Abdoulaye Faye: 4.0-
His needless foul on Tevez led to Ronaldo’s goal early in the match and set the stage for United’s onslaught.

Shawcross: 5.0-
Was overrun by Berbatov and Tevez and was caught out of position on a regular basis.

Higginbotham: 5.0-
The former Man Utd trainee was second best all evening and had no answer for the Red Devils quick fire attack.

Griffin 5.0-
The captain was run ragged by Ronaldo all afternoon and failed to inspire his team when they fell a goal behind early in the game.

Amdy Faye: 5.0-
Lost the midfield battle to Fletcher and Carrick and will not be pleased with his performance.

Diao: 4.0-
Ballooned a shot over the crossbar from just outside of the area in the 10th minute when the match was still in reach.

Delap: 5.0-
A one trick pony who caused a problem or two in the first half but really is a below average midfielder at best.

Olofinjana: 5.0-
He never really got into the match and was substituted off in the 31st minute due to an injury.

Sidibe: 5.0-
He was anonymous for long stretches of the match and made no impression whatsoever.

Fuller: 5.0-
The Jamaican international was starved of service upfront and never really threatened the United goal.

SUBS: Cresswell (31”) 5.0, Kitson (68”) 5.0, Wilkenson (79”) 5.0
