Half-time analysis

David De Gea: Didn't face a shot in the first half.

Chris Smalling: Managed the Griezmann threat reasonably well.

Rio Ferdinand: Not seriously tested, but he's looked the shakier of the two defenders.

Nemanja Vidic: Made a crucial tackle inside the area late in the period.

Patrice Evra: Getting forward when Kagawa cuts inside.

Marouane Fellaini: Completed 89% of his passes and executed two tackles.

Ryan Giggs: Not bad, considering he turns 40 this month.

Antonio Valencia: Struggling to get involved offensively, but has been excellent on the defensive side of the ball.

Wayne Rooney: Passing is off just a shade.

Shinji Kagawa: One of his better periods in the red shirt.

Javier Hernandez: Not getting the necessary service.

Full-time analysis

David De Gea: Had one touchy moment in the second half; ball distribution could have been better.

Chris Smalling: Still not convincing as a right-back, but Griezmann underperformed.

Rio Ferdinand: Not a bad outing, but it'll be interesting to see if he starts at the weekend.

Nemanja Vidic: Registered the highest pass-completion rate of the match. One of his best games of the season.

Patrice Evra: No problem here; answered his critics well.

Marouane Fellaini: It's slowly coming together for him, but he still looks lost at times; should have been withdrawn much earlier.

Ryan Giggs: Probably won't start again for a few weeks.

Antonio Valencia: Covered for Smalling when the England man had his wobbles.

Wayne Rooney: Passing was off; one of his poorest outings this term.

Shinji Kagawa: Moved into the middle when Rooney was withdrawn and looked dangerous.

Javier Hernandez: Should have put United ahead early in the second half.

Ashley Young: Dove to earn the United penalty but made a handful of decent passes into the goalmouth from the left.

Phil Jones: Came on late when Fellaini was ejected.

Robin Van Persie: He won't have had many more frustrating nights than this.
