7 Kuszczak: Had a good save in both halves to help his cause in the keeper battle at United 7 Neville: Had a fight on with Boateng but the veteran gave as good as he got and was eventually winner 7 Brown: Hailed by Fergie in lead up to game as one of the best around and he didn't let him down 6 Vidic: When Pompey were at their peak in the first half it was another uncomfortable period for the Serb 7 Evra: Put in his usual mixture of solid defending and penetrating attacking 7 Valencia: When the ball was at his feet Portsmouth were always back pedaling 7 Fletcher: Didn't get his usual handle on game in first half but got to grips in the second 6 Carrick: Never really got himself into the match 8 Giggs: Hope he had enough puff left to blow out the 36 candles on his birthday cake 7 Scholes: Sent in some typical screamers and generally the dominant one on the ball in midfield 7 Rooney: Certainly one of his more productive days when he was starting as a lone striker Subs:  Anderson (sub Carrick 76) Did okay 5 Owen, Berbatov, Park, Nani, De Laet, Foster not used Portsmouth: Begovic, Kaboul, O'Hara, Hreidarsson, Piquionne (Kanu 63), Brown, Boateng, Dindane (Smith 82), Ben Haim, Yebda (Utaka 78), Wilson Battle of the Bosses: Fergie and Grant locked horns again but the Reds boss had the better tools to work with and put them to good use Referee: Mike Dean - Upset both sides at different times 5 Attendance: 20,842
