Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +2 FULL-TIME, and Manchester United take a very professional and comfortable 4-0 win over Wigan thanks to doubles from Robin van Persie and Chicharito. The away side looked rarely troubled in defence while creating a number of chances despite a slow start to both halves. Wigan meanwhile offered little in attack and struggled to cope with the rumbling United juggernaut that is now unbeaten in nine Premier League games and sitting pretty atop the table.
90' Two minutes are added on in this game.
88' R. van Persie has scored a goal for Manchester United! Assist by D. Welbeck.
GOAL!!! Far too easy, as United now lead 4-0. Danny Welbeck comes forward on the right, tees up van Persie in the middle and he taps home for his second. Game over, although in truth it was done as a contest a long time ago.
87' Oh dear. Maynor Figueroa has a wild shot from distance that goes into the top corner of the stand behind de Gea.
86' C. McManaman enters the game and replaces S. Maloney.
Wigan seem to have woken up a little, but still can't make any real headway into the United penalty area.
83' That wasn't far away from Gomez, whose free kick goes just wide of de Gea's top left corner, with the Spaniard scrambling to make sure it was covered.
82' C. Smalling gets yellow.
Oh dear Chris Smalling, who has his arms all over Kone and brings him down in a dangerous position. He could have been sent off for that, but escapes with just a yellow.
80' As we enter the final 10 minutes, it is very much apparent that Man United are happy to hold onto their 3-0 lead and not push forward for more, while Wigan are offering next to nothing in attack.
78' D. Welbeck enters the game and replaces A. Young.
Oh dear Jordi Gomez. He makes a little space for himself but sends his shot well wide of David de Gea's goal.
75' Good passage of play there from Wigan, with Kone, Boyce and di Santo all involved before Maloney powers in a shot that is well blocked again.
