Player Ratings: Manchester United 4-0 Norwich City

David Moyes' side eased into the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup as two Chicharito goals inspired them to a win over the Canaries. Goal were there to see all the action.

By Tom Maston at Old Trafford

  • Anders Lindegaard

    Anders Lindegaard

    Saved well on rare occasion he was called into action. Distribution was sometimes disappointing but can be pleased with his display.

  • Rafael

    2.50

    Rafael

    Beaten by Redmond on occasion and wasn't his usual self going forward. Covered his centre-backs effectively when required.

  • Phil Jones
    13

    3.00

    Phil Jones

    Showed again his ability to adapt to different roles as he shielded the defence well from the centre of midfield. Confident in possession without playing too many incisive passes before his late goal sealed United's progression.

  • Alexander Büttner

    4.00

    Alexander Büttner

    More displays like this will have Evra sweating about his place. Strong in defence and a real threat in attack. His excellent cross laid on the second goal for Chicharito.

  • Nemanja Vidic

    3.00

    Nemanja Vidic

    Looked like he'd never been away after coming back into the heart of defence. As always very good positionally and dealt with most threats with ease.

  • Rio Ferdinand
    10
    5
    2.50

    Rio Ferdinand

    A better performance from the former England man but still sometimes wasteful in possession. Still getting back to full fitness.

  • Adnan Januzaj
    53
    12
    4.00

    Adnan Januzaj

    Another eye-catching display as his direct running from a central role caused endless problems for the Norwich defence. On another night he could have found himself with a couple of goals.

  • Ashley Young
    9
    11
    2.50

    Ashley Young

    Showed glimpses of good wing play but his final ball became increasingly poor. Too many crosses were over-hit while his set-pieces were also disappointing.

  • Tom Cleverley
    13
    4
    3.00

    Tom Cleverley

    Too many sideways passes but he at least kept the ball well and looked to take control of the midfield area. Still plenty of potential there.

  • Javier Hernández
    31
    6
    4.00

    Javier Hernández Top of the Match

    Expertly finished from the spot before sealing the win with a simple header. His movement caused numerous problems and he went close to a hat-trick.

  • Wilfried Zaha
    19
    6
    3.00

    Wilfried Zaha

    Showed glimpses of why Sir Alex Ferguson forked out so much for him, though he did also lose the ball on occasion. Not a terrible competitive debut.

Substitutions

  • Fabio Da Silva
    19
    2

    Fabio Da Silva

    Managed to get himself a rare goal after a late cameo.

  • Anderson
    8
    6

    Anderson

    Had little time to make an impact after coming off the bench.

  • Wayne Rooney
    20

    3.00

    Wayne Rooney

    A sumptuous pass set up United's fourth goal in an otherwise quiet display from the substitute.

  • Mark Bunn
    1
    4
    3.00

    Mark Bunn

    Pulled off some good saves and had no chance with any of the three goals. A decent understudy to Ruddy.

  • Steven Whittaker
    2
    5
    2.00

    Steven Whittaker

    Shown up by Young and Buttner and conceded too many free-kicks, especially in the first half. Didn't show anything going forward and lost Fabio for United's fourth goal.

  • S. Bassong
    1
    2
    3.00

    S. Bassong

    Solid as he marshalled the defence and won plenty of crucial headers. A weak clearance that allowed Jones to volley home was the only blot on his copybook.

  • Javier Garrido
    2
    2
    2.50

    Javier Garrido

    Troubled by Zaha on occasion and regularly lost possession. Got better in the second half but this was not his best performance.

  • Ryan Bennett
    0
    1
    2.50

    Ryan Bennett

    Lost Chicharito for the second goal on a difficult night for the centre-back. Saw his downward header saved with score 1-0.

  • Bradley Johnson
    0
    1
    3.00

    Bradley Johnson

    Passed the ball effectively and made an excellent clearance under his own bar to deny Ferdinand early on. Could have got forward more.

  • Robert Snodgrass
    1
    4
    3.00

    Robert Snodgrass

    Wasn't at his best but still troubled both full-backs with his quick feet. A horror head injury saw him stretchered off in the second half.

  • Leroy Fer
    0
    1
    2.00

    Leroy Fer

    A half-hearted attempt at a tackle gave away the penalty and he never really recovered. Lost possession and missed a good headed chance just after the break.

  • Wesley Hoolahan
    0
    1
    2.00

    Wesley Hoolahan

    Struggled to make any impact on the game as he tried but failed to find space between the United midfield and defence. Eventually substituted.

  • Nathan Redmond
    0
    2
    3.50

    Nathan Redmond

    Norwich's best player on the night before a side injury forced him off in the second half. Was a real menace but couldn't get on the ball enough.

  • Johan Elmander
    0
    4
    2.00

    Johan Elmander Flop of the Match

    Looked like he didn't know any of his team-mates as he regularly lost the ball trying flicks that no one reacted to. Missed a good chance when still one goal down.

Substitutions

  • Anthony Pilkington
    0
    1
    2.00

    Anthony Pilkington

    Failed to make much of an impact after coming on for the stricken Snodgrass in stoppage time.

  • Gary Hooper

    Gary Hooper

    Had little time to make an impact after his late introduction.

  • Josh Murphy

    2.50

    Josh Murphy

    Gave away too many free-kicks after replacing Redmond.
