Wolves 0 United 5

Wolves 0 United 5

United kept the momentum going in their charge towards a 20th top flight title with an emphatic thrashing of a poor Wolves side.

Fielding a very attacking line-up, United never looked like losing to a Wolves side that have yet to register a win at home this year and who have now conceded five goals in two of their last three home games.

After an even start, United took the lead in the 21st minute and it came from a very unlikely source. Playing in his 119th game for United, Jonny Evans slammed home a shot from five yards out after a corner had been worked back across the box by Michael Carrick. As well as being Evans first goal for United, it was also our 100th goal in all competitions this season.

Wolves were to suffer a huge blow minutes later when Zubar after receiving a yellow card for a wild lunge on Wayne Rooney, proceeded to do something similar on Welbeck and was, quite rightly, shown a second yellow card and a subsequent red card.

On the stroke of half time, United doubled their lead. Wolves had no answer to a swift break, after they`d won a corner, with Valencia running into the Wolves area, unchallenged, before slamming a shot past Hennessey.

Matters got worse for the home side, in first half stoppage time, when United made it three when Welbeck scored.

Wolves tried to shut up shop in the second half but United were in no mood to take their foot of the pedal and a two goal burst, from Javier Hernandez, gave the score-line an emphatic look about it. The first, in the 56th minute, saw the Mexican head home a Rafael cross after a shot from Rooney had forced a corner. The second, four minutes later, came when Valencia and Welbeck played a one-two and when Valencia received the ball back, a deft chip to the far post was volleyed home by Javier.

Game, set and match to United.

A great result but not an outstanding performance just a steamrolling of a side in poor form trying to avoid relegation.
