Rooney Puts Manchester United Back Within a Point of Chelsea
Rooney’s 26th and 27th goals of the season, both headers, gave Manchester United a big boost as they beat West Ham by 3-0. The 3rd goal came courtesy of Michael Own, just a couple of minutes after coming on as substitute.
Strange night really. Anderson limped off just 19 minutes into his first appearance for over a month. Ferdinand has a back injury and Fergie has stated he won`t be available for the Carling Cup final this Sunday. At least Vidic was back in the side.
Antonia Valencia did what he does very well, getting the ball into the box from the wing. And twice it resulted in goals for Wayne Rooney.
United are now one point behind Chelsea, though they`ve played one more game.
