Five-star United crush woeful Wigan

Date published: Wednesday 30th December 2009 10:05

Former Wigan star Antonio Valencia had a productive night, claiming three assists and scoring the final Premier League goal of 2009 against his old club.

But Rooney was the main man, opening United’s account with his 15th goal of the season and getting himself right to the heart of a performance Wigan could not have complained about if it had brought the hosts double figures.

Rooney (28) opened the scoring when he turned home Ji-sung Park’s cross, before Michael Carrick (32) and Rafael da Silva (45) made it safe by half-time.

Dimitar Berbatov (50) tapped home a simple fourth, while Valencia completed the scoring (75) with the best of the night, while Rooney also struck the woodwork twice.
