Manchester United 0 Manchester City 3 - player ratings: Who were the best and worst performers at Old Trafford?
James Mariner is a journalist who has been boring The Independent sports desk with mindless statistics since June 2007. Helping with various, wide-ranging desk duties (I made the tea once), supervising workies and the endless researching of panels, James has an unnatural love of all things football, and in particular the Europa League, being a Tottenham Hotspur supporter. He cites Brian Sears and Ledley King among his heroes and can even find something interesting in Burnley v Hull City. On a good day.

Manchester City eased past their neighbours Manchester United 3-0 at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.
It was another loss in a season of new lows for United under David Moyes.
The Bosnian striker, Edin Dzeko, scored twice in the convincing victory, before Yaya Toure added a third late on.
It was United's 10th league defeat this season, making it the first time they had lost that amount of matches in a Premier League season.
But did any of Manchester United's players deserve any credit at all from the defeat? Click on the gallery below to see the ratings
