Van der Sar: Handled cleanly and some brave keeping gave Reds a solid final line 7 Neville: Not himself and was clearly unwell but he soldiered on. Chris Eagles didn't have much sympathy 5 Brown: Like his sidekick he suffered on occasions when Nugent and Thomson went at defence 5 Evans: Was stretched and got turned over worryingly a few times 5 Evra: His usual lively penetrative performance in attack and little change out of him in defence 7 Valencia: Couldn't complain about how his colleagues brought him into game but didn't do enough with it 6 Carrick: A quiet day to say the least. Hard to pinpoint any impact he really had in the midfield 5 Scholes: Banged his head against a brick wall at times searching for the breakthrough pass 7 Nani: In the main his fluorescent yellow boots were the brightest part about him 6 Berbatov: Couple of golden touches and it finally paid off but it was a toil 6 Rooney: Kept plugging away and eventually got his reward 6 Subs: Anderson (sub Carrick 64) Into action quickly 6 Owen (sub Berbatov 73) Nothing to get teeth into 5 Diouf (sub Rooney 73) Eye for goal 6 Park, Rafael, Fabio, Kuszczak not used Burnley: Jensen, Alexander, Duff, McDonald, Fletcher (Thompson 35) , Elliott, Mears, Edgar, Nugent, Jordan, Eagles (Blake 83) Goals:United: Berbatov (64) Rooney (69) Diouf (90)Burnley: Bookings:United: NoneBurnley: None Battle of the Bosses:Premier League novice Laws had his team fired up.
