The Louis van Gaal men opened up scoring in the 45th min with Memphis Depay latching on to a Juan Mata assist. On resumption of the second-half, captain Wayne Rooney ended his goal drought with a 46th min effort to put the game beyond the visitors at Old Trafford.
Spaniard midfielder Juan Mata added to the Wearsiders’ woes with a 90th min effort to seal victory for the Red Devils in front of their supporters.
