Manchester United 4-0 West Bromwich Albion

It seems ages ago when my first post was about Utd beating Blackburn in the last round of BPL matches. This is of course because it was two weeks ago. After a good week for me (I'm also an England fan), I was excited to see what Wayne Rooney could do for his club after scoring FOUR goals in two games for his country which took his scoring run up to six goals in four games for both club and country, prior to last night's game against West Brom.

Given that Utd started fantastically, creating lots of scoring opportunities and all, they were quite disappointing when it came to the scoreline. It sucked that Man U weren't able to break West Brom down in 45 minutes of play. However things got tasty in the second half. Rooney came flying out of the blocks in the second half. looking so dangerous. In th 56th minute, he scored after having a goal disallowed. The one thing i like more than his goal was his celebration. United then went on a rampage scoring two more goals in 15 mins. Rooney turned provider sliding a through ball for Ronaldo to slot home a beautiful goal. Berbatov got his first Premier League goal for Man U courtesy of a Nani free kick. Nani then closed out the game tucking the ball into the back of the net from a Rooney cross in tha last minute of the game.

Man of the match: Wayne Rooney of course
Impressive: Rafael da Silva impressed at right back doing some solid work in defence as well as making a difference in attack.
Disappointment: Although Berbatov and Ronaldo got on the scoresheet, they both underperformed in my eyes. Berbatov rarely getting the ball and Ronaldo smashing two or three free kick right
smack into the wall.

All in all a great team performance. Four goals, four different scorers.
