PL 13/5/12 Sunderland v Manchester United

United took care of their business on the final day and got the 3 points to make sure City had to win, in order to become Champions on goal difference. They did and United missed out.

United played brilliantly in the first half, getting the goal and creating plenty of other chances. The second half got cagey as nerves took control but United soon took control and saw the match out with ease, keeping possession and not looking to force anything.

My Beautifully Red moments of the match are

1. Antonio Valencia play

Tony V skins his defender with a simple touch and show of his speed. His cross was a dangerous one that was well defended by Sunderland.

2. Rooney goal

Replays HERE

The moment United went top of the league, giving hope to the fans. After a few shaky months, I thought Phil Jones had a really good game. His beautifully ball into the box found Rooney at the far post to nod home.

3. Scholes pass

Lovely 1-2 between Scholes and Giggs sees Scholes play a cheeky little pass that Giggs was able to just get on the end of.
For the geeks out there, Scholes completed 98/103 (95% success rate) passes. Beautiful.

4. Rooney chest pass

Ball hit up to Rooney sees him play a brilliant chest pass to Ryan Giggs. We all love a good chest pass.

5. Quick attack

Calm play by De Gea, brilliant control by Giggs, lovely 1-2 with Valencia almost ends with a goal as first Young scuffs a shot, and then Rooney somehow fluffs it from close range.
United always look at their best when attacking at pace, and this was a prime example.

BONUS

Rooney chance, great play by Young

Ashley Young plays a beautiful 1-2 with Giggs via a nice first time flick, and then finds Rooney whos shot is well saved by the Sunderland keeper.
