Half-time analysis

David De Gea: Palmed over Kevin Mirallas' piledriver of a shot. Saved with his knees from Romelu Lukaku's hard shot late in the half.

Rafael: Played the cross for Giggs' headed near-miss. 

Nemanja Vidic: Made four clearances, joint-most in the squad (with Rafael). Also made two interceptions.

Chris Smalling: Made two clearances.

Patrice Evra: Attacked well on the left. Working hard to win possession.

Antonio Valencia: Got involved defensively to help out. Also created danger down the right, as usual.

Marouane Fellaini: Heard boos from the traveling Everton fans. Fought hard in midfield, often winning back possession. Won two tackles (out of three) and made two interceptions. Completed 95 percent of his passes, best in the team.

Ryan Giggs: Came within inches of scoring with a deft header in the box. 

Shinji Kagawa: Denied a goal after a nice save by Tim Howard.

Danny Welbeck: Completed two successful dribbles. Needs to get more involved.

Wayne Rooney: Had a good chance from a tight angle on the left. Forced Howard into a save with a low shot. Came close with a deflected shot that hit the post and rolled away to safety. Full of energy throughout the final third.

Chris Smalling: Finished with four clearances.

Patrice Evra: Forced a save out of Howard with a blistering shot early in the half. Came close to scoring from a corner with a header in the middle of the box. 

Antonio Valencia: Played eight crosses.

Marouane Fellaini: Completed 93 percent of his 68 passes. 

Ryan Giggs: Played seven crosses and completed 91 percent of his passes. 

Shinji Kagawa: Subbed out early in the second half as David Moyes attempted to shake up his attack. Not his most convincing performance.

Danny Welbeck: Hit the bar with a header following Evra's initial effort on a corner.

Wayne Rooney: Booked for a challenge on Phil Jagielka and will miss United's next Premier League match. Blasted a good chance over the bar when United piled on the pressure midway through the half.

 

Substitutes

Nani: Replaced Kagawa, and quickly shot well over the bar.

Adnan Januzaj: Replaced Rafael as part of Moyes' shake-up early in the second half. Forced a save with a wicked shot from distance. United became more dangerous when he entered the match.

Javier Hernandez: Entered in the final 10 minutes and made little impact.
