Manchester United secured a morale-boosting 4-1 win over Aston Villa on Saturday lunchtime with goals from Wayne Rooney (2), Juan Mata and Javier Hernandez lifting the pressure on boss David Moyes.
It looked like it was going to be another day of frustration for the defending champions as Ashley Westwood curled home a superb free-kick in the 13th minute to hand the visitors the lead.
United didn’t take long to pull level with Wayne Rooney heading home from close range before putting the hosts 2-1 ahead from the penalty spot just before half-time. Villa missed two great chances to equalise before Juan Mata made them pay after sweeping home for 3-1 in the 57th minute, while sub Hernandez came on to tap home a late fourth.
The win sees United stay seventh in the table but will give them confidence heading into the midweek Champions League clash with Bayern Munich.
