The match: United v Wigan

The Reds’ defence would relish more outings like today’s during the 2013/14 campaign.

Move of the match The link-up play between van Persie and Evra was superb for United’s opener, but the second goal also saw Cleverley and Welbeck involved. After Evra had found Cleverley, the midfielder slotted a pass to Welbeck who found van Persie on the edge of the area. His shot may have taken a large deflection off James Perch, but that doesn’t take away from the quality of the build-up.

In the stands United outnumbered Wigan's fans by a ratio of 10:1 and there was great support for Ryan Giggs on his 21st outing at Wembley for the Reds. United fans also sang their hearts out for David Moyes.
