United ratings

Given - Some really smart saves and blocks in the final frantic minutes. 8

Richards - Back out to right back and looked uncomfortable at times. 6

Kompany - A giant in the centre of defence. Put his body on the line. 8

Boyata - Not called upon to do a great deal, but didn't put a foot wrong. 6

Garrido - Passing was terrible early on but stuck to the task well. 6

Wright-Phillips - More effective when moved centrally in the second-half. Always a threat. 7

de Jong - Put the Everton nightmare behind him. At his tigerish best. 7

Barry - Another who returned to form. Excellent distribution. 7

Zabaleta - Fulfilled a number of roles but never got to grips with the game. 5

Bellamy - Struggled centrally but a good threat when moved to the left. 7

Tevez - Worked hard and got his reward, and the headlines. 8

Subs:

Onouha - A great goal-line clearance from Owen. 7

Benjani - Never got into the game when we needed it most. 5

Sylvinho - Didn't have much time but was a calming influence. 6

vote it up!

Wright-Phillips 8? A bunch of turnovers quickly erased his early run. Mancini pulled him too - 8 is way high. 5

Zabaleta 5? Good control today and played with fire. 7

Benjani 5? How could someone who replaces Tevez (and so late in the game) be so lazy up front? 4

Overall a great recovery from the Everton loss. And we beat the "A-Team" of United.

Pet peeve: I know Tevez played his heart out...but couldn't Mancini wait until 85+ minutes to sub him out?
