Given – 6 – Not much he could do for either.

Beye – 7 – Am liking the lad. Good raiding today.

Rozenhal – 4 – Rank. Bottled the first goal and looked a twat for the second.

Cacapa – 5 – Lucky not to be the villain after Marriner bottled the penalty decision.

N`Zogbia – 6 – Wasted where he is.

Smith – 4 – Never a midfielder, doesn`t suit 4-4-2 or 4-3-3.

Barton – 4 – If only he played the game he talked.

Butt – 6 – Steady. Should be our skipper.

Milner – 5 – Tried but lacked his usual quality.

Martins – 4 – Anonymous before his African holiday.

Viduka – 8 – Stand out MOTM by far. The only quality on display.
