Manchester United v Arsenal - Player Ratings

Last updated : 18 September 2006 By Clive Dickman
Even the “Thing from Tring” couldn't ruin our day.

Lehmann – 9 – Superb save at the end to deny United an undeserved point! Crazy booking for handling out of his area.

Eboue - 7 - Defensively sound, when he improves his final ball he will be some player.

Djourou – 7 Good distribution & solid performance.

Toure - 8 – Lead the line well & some crucial interceptions.

Gallas 8 – This performance confirms that we got the better end of the Cole saga.
Rosicky – 9 Getting better & better with every game.

Ljungberg 8 – A massive performance from Freddie which showed that he is still an asset to the team.

Silva – 7 – Lost his footing for the pen which could have been costly.

Fabregas 9 – Yet another superb display from, in my opinion, the best midfield player in Europe.

Hleb – 8 – Linked well with Fabregas & Rosiscky.

Adebayor – 8 Ploughed a lone furrow upfront worked tirelessly & of course scored the decisive goal.


Julio Baptista (68) 7 – Provided some experience later on.

Flamini (88) – 7 – Did a job, not on for long enough to shine.
