While the team wasn’t perfect, Rooney and Van Persie linked up in the attacking half much better than they have been recently; and, a free kick from distance saw the Manchester team seal the deal.

Much has been said about Manchester United this season; and, almost as much has been said about Van Persie. But regardless of what troubles he has had with the club, his manager, and his teammates in the past – they’ll all be celebrating a well deserved victory tonight.

However their was a worry for Manchester United and Netherlands fans near the end of the game when Van Persie left the field on a stretcher. On Thursday the striker will have tests over a suspected hamstring injury, and everyone involved at the club and Netherlands national side will be hopeful for a quick recovery.
