E. van der Sar
Horrendous mistake from the Dutchman put the Baggies level after he inexplicably spilled Brunt's high cross into Tchoyi's path to put the visitors level. May also have done better for Evra's own goal.
Strove forward with usual authority but given a few nervy moments by Fortune. Long stride has returned after injury nightmare. Let down by van der Sar for goals.
Return to the form of old after a difficult start to the season. Real presence in the Baggies half as he matched Rafael's adventure. Had no chance with deflection into own net.
Relished battle with Fortune as the pair cajoled for possession. Gave no inch to his opposite number but sporadically caught too high up the pitch. Hammered header against post at start of second half.
Was at his vintage best before the hamstring injury he picked up against Bolton Wanderers reared its head in the 42nd minute. Made way for Gibson.
Forgiven temporary moments of frustration as the Portuguese continues to deliver an end product. Ruthlessly pounced on Shorey's mistake to put United 2-0 up after his free-kick led to the spill for the opener.
Replaced Scholes in the middle but pushed to left wing after Giggs' injury. Still some way from first-season best and removed for Rooney.
Knitted the United attack together from the middle. Not always at his sharpest to take the sting out of the Baggies' attacks and drifted out of match. Hooked for Scholes.
Showed no sign of missing Rooney as he flourished next to Hernandez. Performance had everything but a goal. Teamed up well with Nani to set up the Portuguese for the second goal.
Knelt down on his knees before kick-off in prayer as the expectation of replacing Rooney showed.. His call was instantly answered with a goal as he poked home from close range after Carson's spill. Excelled throughout as he delivered a performance to justify the World Cup 2010 hype.
Handed United their opener on a plate after he pushed Nani's free kick into Hernandez's path. No chance with the second goal and handed little opportunity to redeem himself.
Heroically slid to stop Rooney's goal bound effort from putting United back ahead. Had struggled in first half but rallied in second.
Used long legs to stop Berbatov instantly putting United back in front. Was involved in melee which saw Evra deflect in own net.
Horror slip on half-way line looked to have killed Albion's hopes. Given redemption as United collapsed in second period.
Handed reprieve after Giggs was forced off through injury. Had struggled to contain Welshman beforehand.
Cameroon international was tugged back for the free kick that led to Evra's goal. Handed gift on first start when van der Sar spilled to him. Made way for Thomas after exploits.
All at sea as United started match strongly and offered little of a shield. As with team-mates, settle into game after van der Sar's gaffe.
Veteran made sure heads around him didn't collapse as Baggies went two goals down. Got stuck in to prevent an equaliser and height helped him win several important headers.
Caused danger from the start as his exciting run forced United back. Continued to probe and tackle. Grit was rewarded with draw. Substituted for Scotland colleague Dorrans.
Top drawer stuff from the northern Irishman. Quality was on show throughout but there was a huge slice of luck in both goals he created. Free kick hammered off Evra's legs and hopeful cross was palmed into Tchoyi's path,
Through effort and skill, caused United's defence problems as Peter Odemwingie wasn't missed. Smart run and cross was excellently cleared by Rafael. Tired and was hooked for Bednar.

Came on after 42 minutes. Offered none of Giggs' inspiration.
Thrown into match on 71 minutes. Couldn't stretch to nod United ahead deep into injury time.
Stage was set for his and United's comeback on 71 minutes. Only real chance was cleared off line by Tamas from a free kick.
