    He's the best defender in the world. I'm sorry, but he just is. It's not even close, he's just that good.

    A bit pointless.

    They were both magnificent, and it's an amazing achievment considering how long Rio has been completely out.

    Very good, slots back into the back four and looks like he hasn't been missing at all. Might see him rested at the weekend.

    Thought he was excellent. I thought it was complete madness to start him tonight, but what do I know? Like he'd never been away. Any need to call him better than Vidic though?

    He was awesome tonight. I suspect though Ferguson might rest him for Fulham on saturday given that its his first game back in a while tonight.

    That's because he's a cheating cnut who needs to be put in his place.

    Rio was amazing, my MOTM along with Rooney and Carrick. He's such a calm and composed defender, and can slot right in without needing match practice.

    It's not pointless, as it was the biggest compliment I could pay him. He's that good.

    Was very good today. Blatantly wants to smack Torres, and hope he does one day

    Vidic looked calmer and more assured tonight. Compared to Saturday anyway.

    Was superb tonight - he bossed a very busy defence, kept a clean sheet, stayed on his feet, and told Torres to feck off a number of times, which is all you can ask for really.

    I love it when he does that to Torres, he deserves it for all his diving.

    Hard to believe he was out for a few weeks with that performance tonight, he looked well up to the challenge from the 1st to the last minute, he had a great game.

    When he's on form, he is the best by far.

    Amazing he was out for more than two months, come back for such an important game and is the best player on the pitch.

    Love him.

    Him and Torres is quite the rivalry.

    Rio works very hard off field(in between Tweeting).He did the same at the time of his ban and he slotted right in when he came back.

    Anyone here him say "Stay on your feet" in the post match interview. I am certain it was a dig at Wilkins. He was mentioning it on twitter last night. :lol::lol:

    He was fantastic tonight; we're so much better defensively when he's around.

    Anyone got a gif of him picking Torres up? Though that was hilarious.

    This is what Vida missed...the calm, collected maestro next to him.

    Good god, I hated what we paid for Rio(especially with Leeds getting screwed so soon after that...)

    But the man paid that back a long time ago, what a defender. Amazing.

    Wilkins must love rio

    Rio is the perfect example of a defender who doesn't dive into tackles. Almost never beaten in a 1 v 1. Still superior to vidic for me, but injuries have cost him.

    But they compliment each other so well. Perfect partnership and with them together anything is possible
