General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +3 Gomez attempts a through ball in behind Rafael, but the Brazilian clears for a corner. Wigan take it short and Di Santo fires a shot at goal, which is blocked in front of Lindegaard. The ball is cleared initially but eventually finds it's way back to Di Santo. Welbeck clatters into the back of the Argentine and picks up a yellow card.
90' +2 D. Welbeck gets yellow.
90' +1 Welbeck plays a wonderful chipped through ball over the top of the Wigan defence, but it's just too long for Chicharito.
89' Handbags between Figueroa and Nani. The Honduran defender fouls the Portuguese winger, and the Man Utd player reacts angrily. Van Persie takes the subsequent free-kick but Wigan clear.
88' Rafael clips in a cross for Chicharito but Ramis intercepts. The ball bounces into the path of van Persie, who can't quite wrap his foot around the cross.
84' Nani has had a torrid time in front of goal this afternoon. He finds himself in time and space on the edge of the box but cannot control his shot in the manner that Powell had just seconds earlier and instead fires well over.
82' N. Powell has scored a goal for Manchester United! Assist by J. Hernández.
GOAL!! McArthur is robbed by Welbeck who races towards goal. The England forward could release van Persie but instead runs into a horde of blue shirts. The ball bounces to Chicharito who lays the ball off for new boy Nick Powell. The former-Crewe player takes a touch and blasts the ball into the back of the net from 20-yards.
79' Boyce bulldozers his way past Welbeck and Buttner near the corner flag before attempting a cross-come-shot that ends up in the side-netting.
77' J. Evans enters the game and replaces N. Vidić.
With the game won, the tempo of the match has decreased significantly. Man Utd have taken off Vidic ahead of a Champions league encounter against Galatasaray.
73' Shocking miss from van Persie. Rafael releases Hernandez inside the box, whose cut back looks to be on a plate for the Dutchman but the Wigan defence do just enough to put him off and he glances the ball wide.
