Manchester United showed no mercy when they weakened Newcastle at Old Trafford. The Reds look like a team that are in full recovery.
Rooney scored the first goal for Man United in the 23rd minute. His Christmas spirit was then greatly displayed when he doubled the lead in the 36th!
Manchester United had their lead extended once again in the second half. Van Persie made it 3 in the 53rd minute. Newcastle, despite their leakages, were able to savage some pride. Cissé converted a penalty in the 87th minute!
United may be enjoying a Champions League position, however Newcastle can’t be sure of their destiny. This matched has proved this Premier league to be a roller coaster. There are those who go up….there are those who go down.
