Wigan 20/11/10

Rooney's Return. A warm but conditional welcome for Wayne Rooney following his controversial and very public contract negotiations. A poor first half was saved just before the break by a rare Patrice Evra goal. When Rooney came on in a double substitution with Paul Scholes in the second half, United went on the front foot. This was more to do with Paul Scholes's presence combined with Wigan having two sent off in a matter of minutes. Hernandez sneaked on the pitch as a later sub almost unnoticed and rose to head in a second goal from a great cross from Rafael. Considering all the fuss around Rooney, it was these two young players who showed skill and determination.
