United 5 - 0 Stoke

O'Shea Evans Vidic Evra
Ronaldo Carrick Fletcher(Gibson) Park(Welback)
Tevez(Manucho) Berbatov

A lot of hype was built before this match with Stoke seemingly dangerous because of Delap's long throws. Everyone said United are under pressure following their 2-1 reverse at Arsenal but it turned out to be a relatively easy match and of course, an eye pleaser. United opened the score through a Ronaldo freekick. From that moment on it was all about United. Carrick added another right on the stroke of half time. Minutes after the break Berbatov got his second goal in the premier league, Welback scored a screamer and Ronaldo rounded things up with another trademark freekick. Excellent football.

I wished Tevez, who had an excellent game, scored a goal. It's evident that his goal vs QPR has worked wonders. Fletcher once again was excellent in midfield, he has grown and finally he is getting the deserved credit from the supporters and commentators.

Welbeck who was on the pitch for a couple of minutes scored what was the goal of the game. An excellent finish. I just hope he blooms into that kind of footballer we all are anticipating. Manucho made his Man Utd Premier League debut and could have scored on two occasions.

Last and not least, I'll have a word about Arsenal. I just can't understand that football team. On one day they beat United 2-1 and on others they lose to Fulham, Hull, Stoke and now Aston Villa. Surely not a title challenging team. But I should mind my own(United's) business.
