Goals in either half from Robin van Persie and Ashley Young gave Manchester United a 2-0 win over struggling Cardiff City on Tuesday.

The Reds were boosted by record signing Juan Mata's inclusion in the starting line-up ahead of kick off, and got off to a great start when van Persie headed home on six minutes. 

Off the pitch, photographers turned their attention to Cardiff's technical area, where Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was a familiar face on his return to Old Trafford.

Official club snappers John and Matt Peters were on hand to capture every twist and turn. Click on the main image above to view our match gallery.
