Manchester United overcame a disastrous start to beat Aston Villa 4-1 at Old Trafford in the Barclays Premier League.
The Villains took the lead through a fine Ashley Westwood free kick, but the Red Devils hit back through Wayne Rooney.
The England forward’s first was a firm standing header from Shinji Kagawa’s pinpoint cross, with his second from the penalty spot after Juan Mata was fouled shortly before the break.
After half time, Man Utd weathered a mild storm from Aston Villa, with Christian Benteke air kicking from six yards out in one of the misses of the season.
David Moyes’ men promptly extended their lead, with Mata latching onto pinball in the area to fire home a low finish with his right foot.
It was a first Manchester United goal for the club’s record signing.
Late on, substitutes Adnan Januzaj and Javier Hernandez combined to make the points safe, with the Mexican striker shooting home from the teenager’s rapid cross.
