Chelsea left Old Trafford likely the happier of the two sides yesterday, after parking the bus for 90 minutes and showing little ambition going forward.  Still, a point is  a point, and these kind of results are the ones Mourinho-led teams grind out during the seasonHerewith, our player ratings for a match that failed to live up to its considerable hype:
De Gea: Handled his work comfortably, never under pressure 8.0

Jones: Opened up space offensively but passing accuracy was poor 7.0

Ferdinand: Quiet day, didn't have to sweat 8.0

Vidic: Comfortable day at the office 8.0

Evra: Surged forward often, but without end product 7.0

Valencia: Looked more like the Tony V of old, but still needs to take on opponents in the box 7.5

Carrick: Moved ball around efficiently 8.0

Cleverley: Combined well with Carrick, showed good hustle and drive 7.5

Welbeck: Linked up well with Evra on left, fluffed his lines with 2nd half opportunity 7.0

Rooney: Displayed boundless energy, looked hungry 8.5

Van Persie: Frustrating day, only one true chance 7.0


Young (Valencia): Looked more dangerous from the flanks than the man he replaced 7.5

Giggs (Welbeck): Non-factor N/A
This is farlieonfootie for August 27.
