United 4 Wigan 0

United kept their winning momentum going with an emphatic win over Wigan.

Well I say emphatic but in all honesty if you`d have told me that we`d win 4-0, at half time, I`d have offered a wry smile.

Whilst the second half saw an avalanche of goals, the first half was much more even with Wigan putting in a gallant display.

United had a golden chance to take the lead very early on when Al Habsi, their goalkeeper, was adjudged to have brought down Danny Welbeck with the referee awarding a penalty, on reflection I`d be lying if I thought there was any contact at all.

With no Rooney or Van Persie on the pitch, Hernandez stepped up and justice was probably seen to be done when Al Habsi pulled off a fine save.

The other major action in the half saw Welbeck volley wide from a Nani cross and then Welbeck see his shot, from eighteen yards deflected over the bar. In fact it could have been our visitors who could have gone in at the break leading if Kone had of headed home instead of wide when it looked easier to score.

The second half was a different story though with United sweeping Wigan aside. The first of the four came six minutes into the half when Paul Scholes tapped home form five yards out and twelve minutes later the game was all but over when Giggs and Buttner combined for Hernandez to score.

The remainder of the game was all about those making their debuts. First Alex Buttner went on a great run, drifting past Wigan defenders before seeing his shot from the by-line go in off of Al Habsi before Nick Powell showed no nerves a tall, with eight minutes left, to fire past Al Habsi to give United what, at half time wasn`t deemed possible, a comfortable win.

Next up is Galatasaray in the Champions League, in midweek.

Not seen any highlights yet but from what I understand Scholes saved the day again. Extraordinary that at his age he is still easily one of the best players in the world, especially at what he does.

Seemed like a sloppy first half performance, typical of us to start slow, not just in the league but also games. The side needs some urgency put into it from the off. Good second half though, good performances all round from what I saw. It's a shame that despite the win it will be Welbeck who will get all the headlines. One would think no other player out there dives. Welbeck was wrong to do it and hopefully we won't see anymore of it. If he worked on his finishing maybe he wouldn't feel so compelled to dive as he could put the ball in the back of the net without any assistance from the officials.
