United avengers beat Rovers into submission...

Last season Blackburn took all six points off the reds in the league, in doing so they joined a small but exclusive group of clubs to have done so. Tonight there was never any real serious danger or Rovers taking three points as United cruised to an easy victory.

Wayne Rooney missed two guilt edged chances to have put the game beyond Rovers in the first half, but inexplicably he missed both, it would have been harder to have missed than score. The England striker somewhat atoned for his errors later in the second half when he played a starring role in the build up to the only goal of the game by finding John O'Shea on the wing, Friedel blocked the first shot from the resulting cross but Giggs pulled the ball back and Saha applied the cou de gras to earn United a well deserved three points.

Mark Hughes had a game plan but when his side went behind Blackburn didn't appear to know how to respond - that is the problem with starting out with a defensive tactical game, ergo it is hard to change once you go behind. Justice was done.
