New year, same old United.

The Reds beat Wigan Athletic 4-0 at the DW Stadium to usher in 2013 and maintain a seven-point lead at the top of the Barclays Premier League.

Javier Hernandez and Robin van Persie both netted doubles in a match Sir Alex's men never looked like losing, despite taking time to assert themselves.

As always, club photographers John and Matt Peters were on hand to capture the action and you can view their images, as well as a number from other professional snappers, by clicking on the main picture above.
