Asmir Begovic - 7 - Keeper made a couple of great saves and distributed the ball well but had no chance with either goal

Andy Wilkinson - 7 - Defender was on top form as he kept his wing quiet but was also at fault for giving away the ball on a few occasions

Robert Huth - 7 - Was a tower at the back as he headed away everything that came his way and swept up everything played in around him on the floor

Ryan Shawcross - 7 - Was unable to deny Chicarito the opener but other than that nothing got past him as he showed Alex Ferguson what he let go

Danny Collins - 5 - Defender was easily beaten for the opening strike and then gave Nani way too much time and space to score the crucial second

Rory Delap - 7 - Played out of position on the right but put a shift in and helped the Potters in defence whilst also doing the simple things when on the ball

Matthew Etherington - 7 - Winger wasn't involved too much but when he did he carried the ball well and was a danger

Kenwyne Jones - 7 - Was up against the tower of Vidic and won a couple of headers, and managed to lay the ball off for teammates but was also anonymous for long periods
