United 4 Norwich 0

the game in impudent fashion to give United some breathing space.

Carrick released Rooney and the England international held off Bassong to roll the ball into the path of Kagawa, who was the coolest man inside Old Trafford as he simply touched a confident finish wide of Bunn to display real quality.

Another Rooney-inspired charge forward then led to Welbeck forcing a decent save out of Bunn and those two players were involved in the build-up to Kagawa's hat-trick strike, the forward running onto Rooney's pass and dinking a sweet finish into the net.

In the final minute, a fourth added gloss to the scoreline with Rooney clearly getting better and better as the game wore on - hopefully an ominous sign for Madrid. Moving into shooting distance outside the box, the no.10 hit a stunning drive that dipped over Bunn but under the bar to set the seal on a thumping victory.
