MAN UTD

DAVID DE GEA: Showed he was alert when required early on but was largely untroubled and could do little to prevent Milner's deflected goal. 6

RAFAEL: Often found space to get forward on the right and had one of the better chances of the first half when his unusual effort hit the woodwork. 6

RIO FERDINAND: Composed as usual although there was the occasional awkward moment. 6

PHIL JONES: Performed superbly at the back to sweep up danger and deny City chances and showed his attacking threat to force equaliser. United's best player. 8

PATRICE EVRA: A committed performance, as shown when he got back to prevent Tevez from shooting in front of goal. 7

ASHLEY YOUNG: Looked to make things happen when he got the ball, either by running, passing or shooting - although it did not always come off. 6

MICHAEL CARRICK: Had another of his quietly efficient games, always in the right position and passing adeptly. 7

RYAN GIGGS: A frustrating night as he struggled to get into the game and his error led to Milner's goal. 5

DANNY WELBECK: Gave United an attacking option but was not a consistent threat and wasted a good early break. 6

WAYNE ROONEY: Looked eager as ever on his return from injury, coming deep to get the ball and create chances but he was irritable at times and his delivery was not great. 6

ROBIN VAN PERSIE: His cross led to the equaliser and he looked threatening as he got into shooting positions but, strangely, it is not happening for him at the moment. 6

Substitutes:

ANTONIO VALENCIA (on for Welbeck, 80): Brought some fresh legs into attack but to little avail. 5

JAVIER HERNANDEZ (on for Rooney, 85): Ferguson again decided to change his attack as time run out but the Mexican did not make an impression. 5

SHINJI KAGAWA (on for Young, 90): Came on to replace the injured Young late on but saw little of the action. 5

MAN CITY

JOE HART: Was not given a lot to do but may feel he could have done more to prevent the equaliser. 6

PABLO ZABALETA: Another solid performance in which he provided his usual attacking option but not his most effective display. 6

MATIJA NASTASIC: Strong on his return to the side, making one vital interception to cut out a Young cross. 7

VINCENT KOMPANY: Commanding display from the City captain and did not deserve the ill luck which befell him for the equaliser. 7

GAEL CLICHY: Did his job and got forward when he could, although his finishing was terrible. 6

JAMES MILNER: Influential from early on, moving through the middle and out wide, and struck a good goal, albeit with a deflection. 8

GARETH BARRY: Showed plenty of hunger and determination, especially for the opening goal, and immediately atoned for any errors. 7

SAMIR NASRI: Played some neat football and got into good positions without having a strong influence. 6

YAYA TOURE: Not one of his most dominant displays but he was regularly on the ball, keeping City ticking over. 7

DAVID SILVA: Strong in the first half, constantly buzzing in and around the box and showed some good touches. 7

CARLOS TEVEZ: Needed no extra motivation on his return to Old Trafford and was a constant danger to United, wanting to create openings or goal opportunities. 7

Substitutes:

SERGIO AGUERO (on for Nasri, 71): A dramatic entrance from the Argentinian, who settled the game with a stunning individual goal. 7

JOLEON LESCOTT (on for Silva, 89): A late replacement for the injured Silva. 5

JAVI GARCIA (on for Tevez, 90): Another late introduction, possibly as much as a time-wasting tactic as to shut up shop. 5

eanwhile, England's best U21 players playing with those most likely to be in the senior team from 2020 onwards might increase their chances in those tournaments to a point where they could actually be potential winners. Unlike 2016.

m not a doctor, but the cause is likely to be crap dancing after scoring. My prognosis is we may need to take that leg off.
