Real Madrid

Diego Lopez: Stand-in for injured Iker Casillas and looked nervous. Lucky to get away with ill-advised challenge for cross Welbeck almost nicked past him. Good saves in the end. 7

Alvaro Arbeloa: Just as Rafael found it hard down United's right, so the former Liverpool man suffered the same experience for Real. 6

Sergio Ramos: Reaction got Van Persie booked and kept the Dutchman in check throughout. Poor for goal, though. 7

Raphael Varane: More of a ball-playing centre-half than a stopper and lucky to get away with collision on Evra. 7

Fabio Coentrao: Was unlucky to see his early shot come back off post and denied by De Gea in second-half. 8

Xabi Alonso (off 82): The starting point for most Real attacks. Superb long ball created chance for Ozil. 8

Sami Khedira: Does the ugly things well and started to advance late on. 7

Angel Di Maria (off 74): Danger from distance, which United did well to keep him to. 7

Mesut Ozil: Impressive support act to Ronaldo and nearly scored too. 7

Cristiano Ronaldo: If Real were going to score, no surprise he did the damage. Powerful header. Had other chances. 8

Substitutes

Karim Benzema (off 60): Used mainly as an attacking foil. Not his night. 6

Gonzalo Higuain (on 60): Did not really test the United defence. 6

Luca Modric (on 74): Cajoled but could not inject life into Real attack. 6

Pepe (on 82): Holding job for Portugal defender. 6

Manchester United

David De Gea: Brilliant save to make sure United did not fall behind and others to deny Ozil, Coentrao and Khedira. 9

Rafael: Rash lunge in on Ronaldo almost proved costly and had a torrid night. Booked for foul on Ozil. 5

Jonny Evans: Selected ahead of Nemanja Vidic and did not let anyone down even if it was tough at times. 7

Rio Ferdinand: Experience vital given the brilliance of Real's attacking play. 7

Patrice Evra: Mismatch against Ronaldo in the air. Better on counter and might have got Varane sent off. 7

Michael Carrick: Excellent block as Ozil threatened to go through. A lot of last-ditch tackles and not same passing fluency as normal. 7

Phil Jones: Nothing pretty about the job he was asked to do but stuck at it. 7

Danny Welbeck (off 74): Brave call by Sir Alex Ferguson to stick him in but repaid with first-half header. Outstanding performance ended by cramp. 8

Wayne Rooney (off 84): Selfless performance on a night when there were no headlines to be gained. 7

Shinji Kagawa (off 64): Tried to get on the ball but not easy with United under so much pressure. 6

Robin van Persie: Needless early booking, hit post, then mis-hit volley he looked like gobbling up. Denied near end. 7

Substitutes

Ryan Giggs (on 64): Spurned a shooting chance but brought composure to United midfield. 7

Antonio Valencia (on 74): Booked but did a decent job anyway. 6

Anderson (on 84): Not enough time to make an impact. 6

he thing is, footballers are role models, and children are influenced by them. I watched the Chelsea game with my 6 year old, and at school the next day she stamped on Emre Can.

et again Barcelona try to convince the world that they only play the most virtuous of football. I've never seen a team so willing and able to dish out lumps but feel so self-righteous that no opposition player should ever have the audacity to tackle them.

d love to see a United v Liverpool FA cup final. It would certainly fit the narrative. Obv I'd want the ending to be one of an O.G. and tears as he collects his runner-up medal.
