United Bounce Back

Manchester United bounced back from consecutive home defeats to pick up a comfortable 3-0 away win at Aston Villa.

A brace from young England international striker Danny Welbeck and a second-half strike from midfielder Tom Cleverly was enough to earn all three points for under fire manager David Moyes.

The current Premier League champions took an early lead when young starlet Adnan Januzaj crashed his header against the crossbar before Welbeck slotted in the rebound to make it 1-0 to the visitors with 15 minutes played.

It took United only three minutes to double their advantage, this time Antonio Valencia broke on the right hand side before firing in a fantastic cross which Welbeck slid home to make it 2-0 to the Red Devils.

The goals were the young Englishman’s first league goals since August of this year.

United dominated once taking the lead and created chances throughout the first 45 minutes, with Valencia and Wayne Rooney coming close before the first half interval.

Welbeck then had a great chance to complete his hat-trick after only 33 minutes when he raced clear but the striker dragged his shot wide of the far post.

Cleverly then wrapped up all three points when he scored United’s third in the 52nd minute as Rooney played him in and the midfielder tucked the ball inside the near post with a measured right-foot finish.

The result means United move up one spot ahead of Southampton in eighth place and will relieve the pressure on United’s under manager Moyes.
