Manchester United defeated West Ham United at Upton park with a highly professional performance, with Wayne Rooney scoring two great goals.
The first was a brilliant effort, with the England man outmuscling Hammers defender James Tomkins near the halfway line, looking up to notice Adrian off his line and blasting in a brilliant strike over the home side’s goalkeeper.
The distance was measured as 57.9 yards.
Rooney later tapped in a second before half time, capitalising on a poor clearance from Mark Noble from a Man Utd counterattack, and the solidity of Michael Carrick and Phil Jones at centre back for the Red Devils will be of great encouragement to manager David Moyes.
