|Manchester United XI|
|Player||Position||H/T Rating||F/T Rating|
|David De Gea||GK||7||7|
David De Gea: Called into action a number of times, but each save was the definition of easy.
Rafael: Tested throughout the first half as Villa worked it down the left with frequency, but saw no action in the second.
Jonny Evans: Worried early on, but settled nicely and had little to do. Some strong defensive headers.
Phil Jones: Untested in the first half, perhaps culpable of dropping too deep, but great positioning in nullifying Christian Benteke.
Patrice Evra: An uncharacteristically quiet half from Evra as United used the right regularly.
Antonio Valencia: A constant thorn in Villa's side, getting the better of Antonio Luna with ease. Wonderful showing.
Ryan Giggs: Almost invisible: not a criticism, not praise.
Adnan Januzaj: Hit the post with a header in the buildup to Danny Welbeck's first goal, a live-wire throughout.
Danny Welbeck: Two very well taken goals, gave Nathan Baker fits. A total mismatch.
Wayne Rooney: Dropping deep and firing passes to the wide areas with ease. Influential.
Darren Fletcher: Tidy in midfield, but his performance isn't the talking point—it's his presence.
Ashley Young: Booed on entry, did little in truth.
Wilfried Zaha: Came on in garbage time.
