Valencia wins Wolves poll

Wayne Rooney may have got the Sky Sports award but Antonio Valencia was the unanimous choice of the ManUtd.com readers for the Man of the Match award at Wolves.

The former Wigan winger returned from injury after missing six games and was instantly back in the groove, giving home left-back Stephen Ward an awkward afternoon. After smashing home a tremendous solo strike on the break, he set up goals for Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez and generally tormented the Wolves defence.

2,250 votes were logged for the Ecuador international as he finished a long way clear of second-placed Javier Hernandez, who scored a second-half brace. Rooney was back in third with Jonny Evans fourth after netting his maiden competitive goal for the first team and playing a key role to the build-up for Welbeck's strike.

Thanks to all fans who voted - look out for another poll straight after Monday's encounter with Fulham at Old Trafford.
