Player Ratings: Manchester United vs Liverpool

Siddarth Sunday, September 19, 2010
Score at Half Time: 1-0

Final Score:3-2

Manchester United: Dimitar Berbatov (42, 59, 84)
Liverpool: Steven Gerrard (64, 70)

Van Der Sar  – 6, He had nothing to do the whole game, clueless about the second goal.

O’Shea         – 6, would have given him a 4 or 5 had he not redeemed himself with that great cross for Berba to score the winner. I still think Rafael is better!

Vidic             - 8, Absolutely dominating, Torres couldn’t touch him! Brilliant tackles, and won everything that came his way in the air. A captain’s display!

Evans           - 6, Good performance until his mistimed tackle on Torres gave away the penalty, improved on last two games, but still getting beat in the air at times.

Evra              -7, Great going forward, supported Giggsy well and defended fine too,  Just what one expects from Pat.

Nani             - 8, Constant threat with his direct running, wasted a great chance in the first half, but still a good performance from him, got an assist as well.

Fletcher       - 7, Great display as usual, brilliant pass to Nani leading up to the second goal, at fault for Liverpool’s second goal, but otherwise was spotless.

Scholes        - 7, Another solid performance from Scholesy, good passing and controlled midfield, of course got his usual yellow card for brilliant tackling!

Giggs           - 7, Good performance, got past Johnson on a couple of times, got subbed due to illness.

Rooney       - 6, Clearly not at his best yet, but a solid performance, good passing, chased down the opposition, much improved from Rangers though.

Berbatov    - 10, saved the best for last, not too many words can describe his performance today, World Class, Transcendent, mind-blowing, can keep going. His second goal left most of us drooling! Today everything went right for the Berb, Already seen the second goal 8 times! So much for those who love calling him Berbaflop! Can see their population reducing drastically after today!

Macheda    - 6, Too little time to make an impact, did well to close down players, made a few neat passes.

Anderson and Gibson – N/A

NANI was a disgrace.. even ronaldo dived better..
he was so embarrassed that he wanted to come off..
and scholesy wasn't gr8 ..
ratings are extremely biased.. 6 for!

with or without his rolling around he was running circles around Liverpool, and i do think Howard Webb was too lenient with Liverpool at most times,Evans was good in the 1st half and Scholesy deserves a 7

Fletch, Rooney, O'Shea, Evans & Macheda get 5. Giggsy 6, he looked sluggish. Fletch nor Rooney are @ their best IMHO. Gutted 4 Chicaritos absense, at least deserved the bench. O'Shea & Evans should never be fielded 2gether, thats 2 stupid mistakes 2 many a game. Macheda just came on & was understandably average. Agree w/ other scores. Nani was great but some can't look pass his theatrics. Berba & Vidic were fantastic & Evra getting back 2 old ways.
