Manchester United 4 Wolverhampton Wanderers 1

Game corresponding to the Premier League played at Old Trafford.

SAF asked for a response to the debacle on Wednesday night and the team duly delivered, albeit against a Wolves side that bravely came to play at Old Trafford and were carved open by some good wing play. Ferdinand seemed to roll back the years and Evra as well as Valencia had their best games in a long time for the Reds. Carrick returned in centre mid and Evans stepped in for Vidic, whose season is now over as his cruciate ligament injury was confirmed, get well soon Nemanja. Nani opened the scoring and Rooney got his first goal in 8 league matches. A dominant United went in 2-0 at half time but 5 minutes after the restart Wolves had pegged one back via the head of Fletcher. That said Valencia and Nani drove the Wolves full backs crazy as they continued to carry out penetrative runs and put in telling crosses. Nani got his second from a Valencia assist and Rooney buried a difficult volley, also from a Valencia cross. Welbeck and Macheda could have also added to the score. What a pity we did not see more of this in Switzerland last Wednesday.
