Rovers Swept Aside by United
It has been a slow start to the season for United, but after four successive wins in all competitions, they remain the team to beat. Paul Ince, the Blackburn Rovers manager, could point to Steve Bennett’s failure to award a foul on Jason Brown by Nemanja Vidic that allowed United their opening goal, but a correct decision from the referee would merely have postponed the inevitable.
Rooney and Ronaldo could have had hat-tricks, while Berbatov was at the heart of everything that United did well, his passing visionary, his speed of thought imperious.
Wes Brown and Wayne Rooney were United`s goalscorers.
