United v Chelsea: Player ratings
Published : 10 Aug 2009 13:40:45
Foster: Won't be happy with either Chelsea goal and looked uncertain with the ball at his feet. 6 O'Shea: Combined well with Park and Berbatov and was generally steady. 7 Ferdinand: Not particularly convincing performance from the skipper at the heart of defence. 7 Evans: Not happy and struggled at times to cope with Drogba and Anelka. 6 Evra: Headed Ivanovic's goalbound effort onto the bar and also prevented Lampard from equalising. 7 Nani: Stunning goal after 10 minutes but worryingly dislocated his left shoulder in the second-half. 7 Carrick: Neat and tidy as ever with his passing - but overshadowed by midfield partner Fletcher. 8 Fletcher: Continues to develop into a top class midfielder. Outstanding. 9 Park: More accustomed to playing on the left but his link-up play was outstanding on the right. 8 Rooney: Started his quest for goals on the right note with last minute equaliser. 7 Berbatov: Looked dangerous in the first-half and should have scored. 7 SUBS: Valencia: (for Nani 63) - Failed to open Chelsea up in the same way as the man he replaced 5. Giggs: (for Park 75) 5. Owen: (for Berbatov 75) 5. Scholes: (for Fletcher 75) 5. Fabio: (for O'Shea 75) 5. Not USED: Kuszczak, Gibson.
