Top Scorer:
Wayne Rooney: 32 (all competitions)

Player to Watch:
Antonio Valencia - The Equadorian has been United's unsung hero this season. The amount of times he's delivered crosses for Rooney to head-in is outstanding. He likes to take defenders on and certainly isn't afraid of a confrontation with a defender. However, it is Valencia's final ball that will have to watched carefully as City will have to close him down quickly when he's in possession.
