Stoke 0 - 2 United

O'Shea Rio Vidic Evra
Valencia Fletcher Scholes(Carrick) Nani(Giggs)
Rooney(Owen) Berbatov

Another Giggs inspired United managed to win against a team who's main priority was not to concede a goal. The first half was very frustrating for United who attacked and attacked without getting any real reward for their labour. However, on the 55th minute Fergie brought on the Welsh wizard who managed to assist both Berbatov and O'Shea who scored without much effort. Giggs was also unlucky not to score a goal himself when he missed the target from an ideal position. He managed to change the game and his genius unlocked the stubborn Stoke defence. Definitely my man of the match.

It was a good performance by the team altogether although I was a tad disappointed with Valencia's contribution as well as Nani's. They seem to hold the ball for too long and the final pass is not always good. Valencia could have and should have scored early in the first half but his chip shot was weak, while Nani, who had a good effort saved, didn't cross the ball well enough and his main aim seemed to be to show off his ineffective skills. There's room for improvement.

At the end of the day we managed to get 3 points at a very difficult ground, while Chelsea managed to lose a 'very winnable' fixture. We're on top of the league again. Order has been restored :)

I think its time he gets knighted, an excellent & loyal player for the club throughout the yrs, not to forget he's the only one till now to have scored in all premier league seasons

He'll surely get knighted someday although I don't really care about that as long as he keeps playing like he is right now.
