5 Points clear, 4 Goals, 3 points and a clean sheet. Just what United needed after their defeat at Wigan and Citys win at Norwich.
United were at their best in the first half, dominating from the start and ensuring they went in at HT 2-0 up. They coasted through the 2nd half and added a further 2 goals.
Here are my favourite moments from the game
1. Scholes chest pass
Under a high ball, Paul Scholes simply chests the ball to Patrice Evra first time. Class.
2. The Scholes Corner
Like we have seen before, the corner is knocked out to Scholes who shows all his beautiful technique to hit a first time volley that wasnt far from finding the net. I love this man.
3. Valencia Megs, Cross for Welbeck chance
Valencia, like a few games ago nutmegs a defender with a pass. He gets it back from the impressive Rafael and smashes a cross into the box where a fine save from Given denies Danny Welbeck his 2nd goal of the game.
4. Rafael backheel
Rafael was superb all afternoon, winning 8/8 tackles and linking brilliantly with Valencia on the right. Here he plays a cheeky backheel to get Valencia in out wide.
5. Welbeck touch
I thought Welbeck also had a great, a constant threat with his energy and Berba-esque technique. This piece of control is just beautful. Why this blog was made.
