United 4 - 0 Aston Villa

A brace by Roo and two goals by Welbeck and Nani gave us a deserved victory. Roo paved way to a comfortable victory from the spot after Young, yet again, was fouled inside the box. Unlike last week, this WAS a penalty but just like last week Young managed to exaggerate the situation. Given yesterday's incident in Italy, dramatizing such situations is a no-no. Anyway, it was an easy Victory and United could have easily won by a wider margin.
I'm pretty pleased with the outcome of the game but we must admit that we played against an average side. This Villa side is plagued by injuries and, although I was a tad nervous before the game, I had a feeling this was going to be a walk in the park.
Not much to comment about. I liked everybody's contribution today even though some players, including Wayne Rooney, were a bit casual in their passes. After yesterday's result, we desperately needed a win and some goals. City are now 4 goals better than us in their goal difference and they'll probably increase that tally vs a very poor Wolves side. I don't expect them to drop any points until the derby at the Etihad while I expect Everton to give us a tough test at Old Trafford. Thankfully Liverpool might've done us a bit of a favor by winning vs the Toffees because they'll probably be down after that defeat.
That sour taste I got after the Wigan defeat has finally been eradicated. We needed a win and we got it. Well done lads, bring on Everton!
