8 Van der Sar: Confident handling from the Dutchman helped restore a sense of solidity at the back

7 O’Shea: Didn’t look out of place at right back

8 Ferdinand: The unflappable England defender was at the heart of United’s strong defensive display

8 Vidic: The Serb would have rued his first-half miss but atoned with some for defensive work

7 Evra: After a spell when the Frenchman has been below-par, this was better

7 Ronaldo: Stunning strike and put Porto on the back foot in his striker role

7 Carrick: Wearing Keano’s number 16 shirt when asking for a Turin-type display was not easy but handled job well

6 Anderson: Turned 21 last Monday and a return to his old stomping ground brought out better form from the Brazilian

6 Giggs: The old stager’s experience back in his former wing role was great protection for Evra

7 Rooney: Must have been itching to vacate wing but produced a disciplined Euro display on the right flank was called for and he did it

6 Berbatov: Brought a calm head to attack back up and showed some nice touchesmore came from his touches than for a while

SUBSTITUTES:

Nani: (sub Berbatov 68) Few dodgy defensive moments 4

Scholes: (sub Anderson 78) Almost gave away a chance as soon as came on 5

NOT USED: Neville, Evans, Tevez, Macheda, Foster


These are not my ratings by the way, its from...

8 Van der Sar: pretty assured tonight really, did nothing wrong, good for him to get a clean sheet again

7 O’Shea: put his bad form behind him, naturally didn't stand out but did little wrong

9 Ferdinand: Sured everything up in defense, made us look solid again

8 Vidic: good performance as you'd expect from him, shocking miss in the 1st half!

7 Evra: better than he's been recently, not at his best but was solid and made some good use of the ball

8 Ronaldo: Wonderful goal, improved attitude and enthusiasm with the ball

7 Carrick: Did very well first half but began to trail off and made some silly passes

7 Anderson: still not great but the best performance from him in a while

7 Giggs: nothing brilliant but a good, calm performance from him

8 Rooney: Not his preferred position but did some good things with the ball and provided excellent cover all game for O'Shea

7 Berbatov: Was doing well at the start of the game, linking things up and giving us a calmness, went missing second half and got subsituted

Van der Sar - 8 solid

O`SHEA - 7 linked reasonably well with Rooney, not really tested in defence

FERDINAND - 8 dealt with everything porto could throw at him. Looked more reassured than recent performances.

VIDIC - 8 as above

EVRA - 7.5 the rest did him good

RONALDO - 7.5 Superb strike & did a little more donkey work than usual

CARRICK - 7 solid. Passed the ball well.

ROONEY - 8 a tireless display & contributed to both attack and defence. MOM

BERBATOV - 6.5 some neat touches & kept porto centrebacks busy

ANDERSON - 7.5 Solid display from the ex-porto man. Looked fired up in the 1st half but quieter in the 2nd

GIGGS - 7 decent display on the wing

Subs;
NANI - 3 Shhhhhhiiiiiiiitttttttteeeeeeee!!!!!!

SCHOLES - 6 did okay

lol have to disagree there.

Rio bought a coolness to the back. I guess if you don't watch us that often then you won't realise aything but that was a typical, quiet yet brilliangt performance by Rio.

Anderson was also very good. A proper battler in the midfield and cancelled out all Porto's attacks.

Why is everyone giving Evra a good rating?

I counted 11 times he gave the ball away with little to no pressure.

All the Nani hating is getting beyond a joke. He was brought on to provide an outlet and waste time, and that's exactly what he did. He even helped out in defence. But he gets ratings of 2, 3 and 3.5 from some of you, while Scholes comes on and gets a 5, 5 and 6 for generally being crap and giving the ball away. Baffling.

This was the best I've seen us play in a while now. Anderson was practically reborn on the pitch he looked great. :specool:

I think the thing that shocked me most though was watching Ronaldo fly into a tackle. It made me blink.

EVRA - 7 -
RONALDO - 8 - amazing goal.
CARRICK - 7 - played well in the first half and not so well in the second..
ROONEY - 8 - amazing ..like he was everywhere on the pitch..
BERBATOV - 7.5 -i know you think i give him a bit higher rate but he had 80% successfull passes and when he left the field then we lost control of the game..i mean when he left porto take a bit advantage over us .so that's why i give him 7.5
ANDERSON - 7 - he just played wonderfull...he passed and hold the ball very well
GIGGS - 7 - no comment simply the best!

VDS 7 some good saves
oshea 6 nothing of special
Rio + Vida 7 good but not perfect display
evra 5 he have lost the ball too many times
carrick 6 do his job
giggs 6 like Carrick
anderson 7 Great run and great passage
ronaldo 8 not a huge performance but he give us the next stage of the competition. He is the only United player that really know how to shoot to score from every position on the field
rooney 7 marvellous player, he is not only a striker, untouchable
berba 5 good pass ok..but I expect more from a 1.90 height frontman..

SAF - 10 That`s why I love MU. He was brilliant, he got 4 players in and 3 of them were injured. That`s the spirit.

I agree with zuco, Nani did his job great, he wasted time and that`s why he got in. Scholes was in for the same reason and to be honest I haven`t seen him in about 10 min when he got in (from 75 till 85min.) Rooney was everywhere, that``s why he got 9. There is one other thing, I voted for Ronaldo as MOTM because of goal. Also one other thing, did you saw that in the first half we had 300 passes and Porto had only 200.

completely different attitutde from Ronaldo last night, willing to chase longe balls that looked lost, willing to tackle, ran at people and genreally caused them trouble!! won us a couple of corners when we shouldnt have had anything he had no right to win anything from some of the long balls yet kept chasing! also it was a wonder goal!! long may this continue from Ronny!
