Wigan 0 - 5 United

Wigan 0

United 5
Rooney (56, 65); Berbatov (58); Owen (85); Nani (92)

Hi guys, today's game was AMAZING for me. United played really well in the second-half, but not well in the first-half. Wayne Rooney's two goals smashed the 100 goal mark for United and now he's got 101 for Manchester United.

Ferguson looked concerned at the break after making seven changes to his side in a bid for victory at the DW Stadium.

United Goals:

It came from Rooney - a fine header into the corner - and a landmark one as well. He savoured the moment and the goal was his reward for another typically hard shift.

That was the cue for United to turn the screw and Berbatov added a second two minutes later.

United made it 3-0 in the 65th minute thanks to Rooney’s second goal of the game.

Rooney was given a rousing reception by the visiting fans when he was replaced by Michael Owen in the 72nd minute.

However Owen made it 4-0 to United with his first goal for the club, a cool finish into the corner in the 85th minute after he had been set up by Nani.

Nani had the final word with a superb free-kick in stoppage time from 25 yards that sailed over a stranded Kirkland’s head.

United lineups: Foster, Neville, Vidic, Evra, Evans (O'Shea), Valencia, Fletcher, Scholes (Owen), Nani, Rooney (Gibson), Berbatov.
