Cottagers thrash sorry Red Devils

Danny Murphy opened the scoring on 22 minutes from 30-yards after capitalising on a blunder by Paul Scholes and Zamora continued his rich vein of form with the second a minute after the interval.

Damien Duff crossed from the right to Clint Dempsey at the far post and he headed back to Zamora, who fired in from six yards for his fifth goal in four games.

Zamora helped complete the rout of the champions by setting-up the third for Duff in the 76th minute, with the winger volleying in from 20 yards.

Just as worrying for United as their second Premier League defeat in three games was the knowledge they were overwhelmed in every department and their crippling injury list has clearly caught up with them.
