Manchester United vs. Wigan: Complete Player Ratings for Red Devils

Manchester United returned to Premier League action after the international break with a hard-fought win over a spirited Wigan side.

Alex Ferguson's 500th EPL game as manager at Old Trafford wasn't a classic, but three points are three points.

More importantly, the win helped close the gap to league leaders Chelsea, who dropped two points at Queens Park Rangers.

A strong second-half showing more than made up for a poor first half.

The team showed five changes from the one that beat Southampton, with Ferguson keeping one eye on Wednesday night's Champions League opener.

Ryan Giggs and Javier Hernandez were handed their first starts of the season, while Alexander Buttner made his Manchester United debut.

United spurned an early chance to take the lead, with Hernandez seeing his weak penalty saved.

In the end they did enough, as goals from Paul Scholes, Javier Hernandez, Alexander Buttner and Nick Powell gave United a 4-0 win.

Here are my rankings for all Red Devils involved.
