MUFC 2012-13 player review: Alexander Buttner

Alexander Buttner did what was needed from him this season as Patrice Evra's deputy. The Dutchman was generally solid when he featured, and he was even very impressive on a few occasions, however, he only made 13 appearances. He is still a relative unknown.

MUFC 2012-13 player review: Shinji Kagawa

It was a decent debut season at Manchester United for Shinji Kagawa, but it wasn't one that likely left the player fully satisfied, nor the majority of supporters.

MUFC 2012-13 player review: Darren Fletcher

This was never going to be a long review for obvious reasons.

Continue

MUFC 2012-13 player review: Tom Cleverley

Tom Cleverley made 32 appearances in his second full-season as a first-team Manchester United player and his form was generally solid throughout. However, his influence did wane as the season progressed and there are lingering doubts that he can be a first-choice player for a club with the ambition of United.

MUFC 2012-13 player review: Paul Scholes

Paul Scholes went out quietly in the final season of his legendary career.

MUFC 2012-13 player review: Robin van Persie

With context considered, the only other player in the Sir Alex Ferguson era to have had a similar impact at Manchester United in their first season is Eric Cantona.

MUFC 2012-13 player review: Michael Carrick

It was a sensational season for Michael Carrick as he was voted Manchester United's Players' Player of the Year and named into the PFA Team of the Year.

MUFC 2012-13 player review: Nemanja Vidic

We weren't sure what to expect from the captain after his horrific knee injury. By season's end, though, with context considered, it was encouraging to see flashes of his old-self again.

Continue

MUFC 2012-13 player review: Anders Lindegaard

David de Gea has clearly established himself ahead of Anders Lindegaard as Manchester United's No.1.

Continue

MUFC 2012-13 player review: Chris Smalling

Chris Smalling is still a promising young talent, but he ended the season as a fringe player for Manchester United and as the fifth-choice central-defender.

Continue

MUFC 2012-13 player review: Ryan Giggs

Ryan Giggs exceeded all expectations this season.

MUFC 2012-13 player review: Wayne Rooney

This was perhaps the most disappointing season from Wayne Rooney during his nine-year Manchester United career, and after his second transfer request in three seasons, his future is uncertain.

MUFC 2012-13 player review: Anderson

It was, sadly, another typical season from Anderson.

Continue

MUFC 2012-13 player review: Antonio Valencia

Antonio Valencia's first season in the famous Manchester United No.7 shirt did not go nearly as well as everyone had hoped.

Continue

MUFC 2012-13 player review: Jonny Evans

Jonny Evans has been proving his doubters wrong these past two seasons.

Continue

MUFC 2012-13 player review: Rio Ferdinand

It was another successful campaign for Rio Ferdinand: at 34-years-old, he made more appearances than any other Manchester United central-defender while he was also named into the PFA Team of the Year.

Continue

MUFC 2012-13 player review: Phil Jones

Injuries hampered Phil Jones' season to an extent. Nonetheless, the versatile 21-year-old still provided tremendous tactical value as a combative central-midfielder against some of Manchester United's most formidable foes this season.

Continue

MUFC 2012-13 player review: Patrice Evra

Patrice Evra is clearly no longer the world-class left-back that he once was. However, this season was improvement for him in comparison to some of his most recent ones.

Continue

MUFC 2012-13 player review: Rafael da Silva

It's quite fitting that this was the season that Rafael was given the No.2 shirt.

MUFC 2012-13 player review: David de Gea

Our player reviews for Manchester United's 20|13 title-winning season begins with the club's No.1: Davd de Gea.
