United re-open a five point gap with City with Rooney scoring 2 goals in the Man Utd 4-0 Aston Villa game at Old Trafford.
Manchester City had put United under intense pressure after closing their point gap into just 2 24 hours earlier, but after Ashley Young feel down to another debatable foul, Rooney made sure Old Trafford can breath easier from the penalty spot.
Just before the break, Patrice Evra broke in from the left and sent in a low cross, which couldn’t be reached by any Villa players, but Wellbeck arrived from the far post to tap that in and put United in a two goal lead into the half time.
From then on, Manchester United totally dominated the game, and after a neat one-two in the box between Rooney and Antonio Valencia, Rooney registered another goal to his name and his second of the game.
Nani, who replaced Ashley Young earlier then came into action after being fed a great ball by Jonny Evans and finished it with a cool finish.
Full Time: Man Utd 4-0 Aston Villa
Scorers: Wayne Rooney (2), Danny Wellbeck, Nani
