Relatively quiet game for the Albion shot stopper, who didn't really have much chance of stopping Rooney's third-minute goal, nor Hernandez's winner.
Didn't make any slip-ups in a game that saw the Albion defence look good.
Looked good in his first game since playing against Stoke on November 20 but had to leave through injury on 71 minutes.
Had a good game for West Brom and was unfortunate to get injured and be forced to leave the field on 64 minutes.
Caused United a host of problems and the away side struggled to contain him
Had an excellent game down the right hand side of the field. Sublime volleyed goal on 14 minutes drew West Brom level and spoke volumes for the risk-and-reward strategy adopted by Roberto Di Matteo and his men.
Was the man deprived by Gary Neville's last-ditch challenge that should have brought a penalty, but then squandered an even better chance in first-half injury time when he screwed his shot wide of the near post.
Afforded Rooney too much space in the opening exchanges, allowing the striker to head home after three minutes. Steadier thereafter.
Part of a West Brom midfield that proved more than a match for their United counterparts. Couldn't harm the opposition at set-pieces though, much as he tried.
What had been a decent showing was undermined by putting his penalty hopelessly wide of the goal. It always looked likely to be a very costly miss, and so it proved.
As much of a bystander for Morrison's goal as the spectators in the stand, such was its quality. Would have expected to be tested by Odemwingie's spot-kick, but it was dragged harmlessly wide. Competent without being outstanding.
Made a surprising amount of mistakes in an out-of-character showing from the French full-back.
The rock at the heart of United's defence. A block of a Thomas goal-bound shot in the second half typified his awareness.
Extremely fortunate to remain on the field, let alone not even give away a penalty, for a despairing last-man lunge on Dorrans in the first half. Caught out of position on numerous occasions, and eventually substituted.
Caught out by Thomas' movement in the second half and brought the West Brom man down for what should have been a costly penalty except for Odemwingie's miss. Otherwise solid.
Didn't make the kind of contribution he has in recent weeks, which is perhaps testament to how well the West Brom midfield played.
The United midfield was generally outplayed by their opposite numbers, though Fletcher was not solely to blame for that.
Over-pursued at times, leaving space between midfield and defence that West Brom profited from.
Excellent performance for the striker, worked tirelessly and was rewarded with a goal and an assist, but the ankle injury he picked up near the end of the game will be a concern.
Caused Albion problems down the flanks but lacked an end product.
Quiet game for the Bulgarian, not the same as the last few games, and although he looked disappointed to be substituted for Hernandez to come on, it was a fair decision and proved to be decisive in the match.
- B. Amos
- 23 J. Evans
Was kept busy after coming on as a sub and was shown a yellow card for a heavy challenge.
Was mainly a defensive player when he came on as United looked to hang onto their lead.
- 7 M. Owen
- 33 Bebé
Came on as a substitution and did well to shrug off his marker and head home the winner. His talismanic value continues to grow.
