United 4 - 1 Wolves
Smalling, Ferdinand, Evans, Evra(Fryers)
Valencia, Carrick, Jones, Nani(Young)
|Excellent Performance by Nani|
Finally! We've scored more than one goal in the premier league! Rooney and Nani got a brace each. It was so good to see Nani back in form, terrorizing Wolves' defenders and scoring in the process. Definitely my man of the match, followed closely by Jones. The last time United scored more than once in the PL was back in October(1st Oct) when we defeated Norwich 2-0. Since then we've gone on a run of 7 league games scoring just one goal in each game but accumulating a total of 14 points from a possible 21. Not that bad, in my opinion.
When our midfielders put in a good performance, we can destroy most Premier League sides and that is what happened today. Jones and Carrick in midfield were excellent and on the flanks Nani and Valencia had possibly their best performance of the season. I must not get carried away, we only defeated Wolves, but we've been struggling to beat average sides lately and this win is a massive boost for our players as well as the fans. I felt relaxed during the game, possibly the first time in about 2 months! Even the Carling Cup quarter final managed to make my heart skip a few beats!
|Roo's Second Was A Beauty|
We did let Wolves get into the game early on in the second half but that only lasted for ten minutes. Rooney scored the best goal of the game with a fine volley and that spelled game over for Wolves. We were quite comfortable throughout and deserved every goal we scored and, dare I say, more. Every player did his job superbly with the exception of young Smalling who, at times, couldn't keep up with the excellent Jarvis.
Anyway, we're now only 2 points away from our neighbors. If Chelsea show up on Monday, they could do us a huge huge favor. All the 'big' teams won today so the pressure is now on both teams playing this Monday. Let's hope the Londoners and their ladyboy emerge victorious! Come On United!
