Man United 3-1 Sunderland
Old Trafford 15 December 2012
It was relatively an easy win for Man United who could easily scored at least four goals at the first half with Rooney wasted two chances. Robin Van Persie scored his 12th league goal of the season for Man United first.Then Tom Cleverley scored his first goal at Old Trafford. It was a beautifully crafted goal with great skill to execute. Then RVP striker partner Wayne Rooney scored just before an hour mark to make it 3-0. Man United ex player Frazier Campbell scored in 72th minutes to give to scoreline 3-1 until the end of game.
In first half Man United really gave Sunderland a football lesson. The Devils were no match against the visitor in all department. It was lucky for Sunderland as Man United could only managed two goals. They should grateful to their goalkeeper performance that kept the scoreline low.
At the second half also showed the supremacy of the host. They passing the ball confidently and smoothly. Pressing hard on the opponents. But somehow reducing it in the final 20 minutes. And it was sad that Man United could keep the clean sheet when Campbell scored.
After all it was much better performance by the Devils. Cleverley clearly wanted the midfield position to be his permanently. Rooney had gained his finishing touch again. Now he had scored five goals in four games. If RVP- Rooney partnership continued to score, it surely benefited Man United.
Man United will travel to Swansea before Christmas and at home for Newcastle match for the remaining games in 2012. Surely Man United will lead the league entering the year.
