'If It's Football, It's Vital'

United 2 West Brom 0

How fortunes can change so quickly in football!

After the disappointment of losing to Athletico Bilbao on Thursday night, United carved out a win that took them back to the summit of the Premier League table after Manchester City, our noisy-neighbours, lost away to Swansea.

The win was achieved with a brace form Manchester united, a goal in each half.

United signalled their attacking intent by fielding a strike force of Rooney, Welbeck and Hernandez and after a start where United were hesitant and West Brom looking the more likely to score, it finally paid off.

West Brom`s best chance in that opening spell being an effort from Andrews that De Gea did well to save. However, once United got in their stride, with Scholes pulling the strings in midfield and using Young well.

The opening goal came ten minutes before half time when Rooney notched number twenty-five of the season reacting smartly to divert Hernandez`s shot past Foster, with a volley, from six yards out.

Half Time - United 1 West Brom 0

As per the first half, West Brom started the second half the better of the two teams and many observers will feel that they were unlucky not to be awarded a penalty when Evra appeared to trip Odemwingie in the box.

United almost took advantage of their lucky escape by doubling the lead straight after when Hernandez crashed a fierce shot against the post before the ball was forced out for a corner.

From the resulting corner Rooney tried an acrobatic overhead kick that Foster reacted well to save. The next to chance his arm was Welbeck who, after rounding Foster, somehow contrived to shoot wide from an acute angle.

Any plans West Brom had of getting back into the game were drastically reduced when they were reduced to ten men after Olsson was shown a second yellow card for a lunge on Hernandez.

Young, probably our choice for man of the match, earned a penalty when he was bundled over after darting into the box, a penalty that Rooney converted for his twenty-sixth goal of the season.

With United now cruising Sir Alex introduced two substitutes in Cleverley and the want-away youngster Pogba. Our visitors almost reduced the arrears when Long forced De Gea into a save whilst Young was unlucky not to extend the lead further.

Top of the table, can you see us City?

The pressure is only equal to the pressure on you to keep up, which won't be easy considering both teams run-ins. Should be a very interesting few weeks.

A great performance but a scoreline that didn't match it, we should've scored so much more but should've conceded a penalty which might not necessarily of been converted. Deserved result now bring on the next game, let's take it one step at a time.
