First-Half Analysis

David De Gea: Made one strong save from Aaron Lennon, had no chance for either of the goals. Assured performance.

Chris Smalling: Has had trouble dealing with Spurs' attacking prowess on the left early on, but settled down and nullified Nacer Chadli very nicely throughout.

Nemanja Vidic: A long way from his commanding self, and ended the game with a yellow card to his name. Far from his best, but not the worst.

Jonny Evans: Solid, if unspectacular, showing from Evans who was stretched a little. Gave away the foul for Kyle Walker's goal.

Patrice Evra: A woeful first half saw Evra somehow avoid two yellow cards and the concession of a penalty in the first half. He finally received a yellow in the 78th minute, and will want to put this afternoon behind him.

Antonio Valencia: Was United's best threat, from an attacking sense, down the right-hand side for long periods but failed to pull out anything concrete.

Tom Cleverley: Did little right, but little wrong; the clamour to see him benched in favour of someone else will only heighten after this game.

Phil Jones: Solid in midfield and strong in the tackle, but lacking in technique when surging forward. An OK return to the side following injury.

Shinji Kagawa: Extremely quiet in the first half and far from the influential creator David Moyes will have wanted. Completed a very high percentage of his passes in the second half as his team dominated the ball.

Danny Welbeck: Had an extremely quiet first half but was more influential in the second. One run in particular, to beat Michael Dawson, was superb and he won the penalty for United's second.

Wayne RooneyWas all over the pitch, as usual, and scored the two goals to level matters for the away side. United's Man of the Match without doubt.
