Leeds United at Old Trafford

Simon Grayson's League One side travelled as major underdogs but left as heroes as they ended 28 years of Old Trafford hurt thanks to a lone Jermaine Beckford strike. Take a look at how we rated the players on a famous day for the Whites...

Brilliant in the second half, making a vital save from Welbeck and denying Rooney under immense pressure at the death. Commanded his box from the first minute to the last. 8/10
Crowes clearance off the goalline from Rooney was a pivotal moment, and although Manchester United got some change out of him, it was less than they would have liked. 8/10

A captains performance from Naylor. Never looked ruffled, never seemed worried and did not allow any more than the handful of chances that Leeds were bound to concede. 9/10
Every week his performances seem to improve, and he is unlikely to better the exceptional display he produced at Old Trafford. Absolutely awesome, in every way. 9/10
Obertan had his number initially, but Hughes experience came flooding through and Ferguson was forced to switch his wingers after the break. A fantastic day for the Manchester City fan. 8/10
Gave Beckford his opportunity with a clever through-ball that caught Brown in no mans land. Battled like any Leeds lad should and looked shattered when he left the field. 8/10
Exactly the sort of player United needed in the heat of battle at a venue like Old Trafford. Fought to the death and must be in line for a long-term deal at Elland Road. 8/10
Kilkennys game is clearly suited to this size of stage, and he showed great composure by refusing to panic when space was limited early on. Uniteds playmaker, yet again. 9/10
His stamina was a major asset and the biggest threat to Leeds in the closing stages was the possibility that the United players hard work would take its toll. Covered a massive amount of ground. 8/10
An epic shift from the most honest player in Uniteds ranks. If the game had lasted for another 90 minutes, Brown and Evans would still have found him competing for everything. 8/10
Apparently he never performs when it matters. His priceless goal says otherwise, and the key to an upset was always going to be clinical finishing from Leeds. 9/10
Robert Snodgrass (for Howson, 77) - 7/10. Lubomir Michalik (for Becchio, 88) - 6/10. Aidan White (for Hughes, 90) - 6/10.
XI: Kuszczak, Neville, Brown, Evans, F Da Silva, Welbeck (Valencia 58), Anderson (Owen 69), Gibson, Obertan (Giggs 58), Berbatov, Rooney. Subs (not used): Carrick, R Da Silva, Tosic, Amos.
Chris Foy (Merseyside) Showed nerves of steel by waving away two Manchester United penalty shouts. 8/10
