Welcome to the Stretford End Arising’s Player Ratings.
Manchester United returned to the summit of the Premier League after handing out a 7-1 thumping to Blackburn Rovers, with Dimitar Berbatov the hero netting five goals. Anderson, Nani and Wayne Rooney are also worthy of a mention impressing in the rout.
With Chelsea only claiming four points from a possible fifteen, United now find themselves two points clear at the top. So much for the all conquering Chelsea…

Man United XI
Edwin – 6.7: Quiet day at the office. (Red Thomas)
Rafael – 7.9: Great game, should be starting RB everygame. (Red Thomas)
Rio – 7.7: Some kind of monster today. Ok, Blackburn wasn’t a real threat, but even so, he was superb today. His blocking on Jason Roberts and his lob pass to Rafa in sequence were sensational. (Jorgefoo)
Vidic – 7.4: Solid as ever. (Red Thomas)
Evra – 7.7: Great, great, great, great performance. impenetrable on defense and always dangerous offensively. (Jorgefoo)
Nani – 8.1: After some not so good games, he has an excellent performance again. Continue holding the ball unnecessarily, but he had an demilition action today. (Jorgefoo)
Carrick – 7.8: Looked great paired with Anderson. Calm and passing masterclass once more. (Red Thomas)
Anderson – 8.2: His best performance with the United shirt, imo.. Few wrong passes, A LOT OF accurate ones, very good in marking… That’s the ando that I want to see. THAT ONE! (Jorgefoo)
Park – 7.7: One of his best performances at United. marking, offensive, effort, moviment…. Good one, Park! (Jorgefoo)
Berbatov – 9.9: Unbelievable. (Red Thomas)
Rooney – 8.1: Unfortunately, didn’t score, but he deserved. I begin to see glimpses of that Rooney, last season’s Rooney. His quality in passing still excellent. Welcome back, Wayne. (Jorgefoo)
Obertan – 6.3
Evans – 5.5: Responsible for the only goal conceded. (Wez)
SEA’s man of the match – Dimitar Berbatov
