Player Notes

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 RooneyDropping 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.
