Manchester United vs. Wigan: Player Ratings in Red Devils' Dominating 4-0 Win

Did anyone really expect Manchester United not to run away with this one?

I did.

Wigan Athletic looked good at the end of last season, avoiding relegation with wins over some top-tier teams, including the lads at Old Trafford. I didn't think this would be a cakewalk for Sir Alex Ferguson and his men.

And for the first 50 minutes, I was right.

The Red Devils looked a little shaky in the first half, with the Latics keeping possession nicely in the midfield. But a score from the ageless Paul Scholes—his first of the season—opened the flood gates and put the hosts ahead 1-0.

Then things got truly out of hand.

Javier Hernandez scored his first goal of the season just 11 minutes later and then newly signed players Alexander Buttner and Nick Powell scored in the 66th and 82nd minutes, respectively.

Manchester United was firing on all cylinders collectively, ending the game with a 4-0 win, but how did the individual players grade out?

Check out how they all graded out, and let me know if you agree!
