Rooney named star man

Wayne Rooney came out on top in the ManUtd.com poll for Wednesday's Man of the Match award after his two goals sank Southampton.

The Reds' No10 cancelled out Jay Rodriguez's effort with a calm finish after being put in the clear by Shinji Kagawa and grabbed the winner from even closer range from Patrice Evra's diving header.

With 58 per cent of the vote, Rooney was a clear victor ahead of Kagawa in second place after a bright performance from the Japanese schemer, particularly in the first half.

Skipper Nemanja Vidic finished in third spot after a dominant display at the heart of the defence with Evra and Danny Welbeck completing our shortlist.
