Unable to outwit Steven Gerrard during the penalties but was well situated to make stops on a few occasions.
Lucky to have stayed on the field with his handball following in such close succession to his booking for a foul on Gerrard.
Spoiled a good performance with the concession of a penalty right at the start of the second half.
Unable to get forward and influence things in an attacking sense.
Flat-footed on a few occasions as Sturridge ghosted past him, including for the third penalty.
Switched to the right flank in the first half in an attempt to instigate something and a bit of magic prompted a late first-half chance for Rooney.
Slipped in a few nice passes and won some free kicks but was unable to replicate the influence he once had at Chelsea.
Bypassed too often in the centre of midfield as Sterling and Sturridge picked the ball up from deep to create openings.
Another ineffectual display as he gave the ball away and failed to dictate play.
Had United's best chances; first, he drew a fine save from Mignolet and was then denied by a Skrtel block. Still no relationship to speak of with Van Persie.
R. van Persie
Snatched at the chances that came his way. An off-target second-half header summed things up.
One brilliant stop from Rooney in the first half but was under-employed otherwise.
The threat of the England man going forward was enough to curb Patrice Evra's influence in an attacking sense.
Did not have an awful lot of defending to do but distributed the ball well from the back.
Made one terrific block from a Rooney shot in the first half but could have conceded a penalty against the same man in the second.
Over-exuberant in the first half with a series of fouls bringing a booking but hassled United well and often won the ball back.
Took the ball in deep positions to try and wreak havoc from a more orthodox 'number 10' position.
Played effectively in the right-hand channel with some nice through passes, including the one which brought the second penalty.
A performance that had it all. Interceptions, tackles, passes and two well-taken penalties. Blotted his copybook with a third, missed effort from the spot.
Astute in his defensive duties but also popped up for a shot at goal and to win a penalty in the opposition box.
Won a penalty with a stylish flick around Rafael and was patient enough to finish the best chance that came his way late on.
Sprung the United back line with a few well-timed runs and was unlucky not to score in the first half. Won a penalty and slipped Suarez in for the third.
