Goal Robin van Persie
GOAL!!! Far too easy, as United now lead 4-0. Danny Welbeck comes forward on the right, tees up van Persie in the middle and he taps home for his second. Game over, although in truth it was done as a contest a long time ago.
Yellow Card Chris Smalling
Oh dear Chris Smalling, who has his arms all over Kone and brings him down in a dangerous position. He could have been sent off for that, but escapes with just a yellow.
Goal Javier Hernández
GOAL!!! 3-0 United!!! Robin van Persie sees his free kick deflected into the Wigan area, and there is Chicarito to sweep home and probably kill this game off for good.
Yellow Card Gary Caldwell
Gary Caldwell then earns himself the first booking of the afternoon after tripping Rafael who was marauding forward from right-back.
Goal Robin van Persie
GOAL!!! 2-0 United! A cross comes in towards Robin van Persie, who manages to get the ball down, stay composed and bury the ball with his right foot. Cracking finish from the Dutchman, and the away side are well ahead now.
Goal Javier Hernández
GOAL!!! United are ahead! Patrice Evra sees a shot palmed away, but it's straight into the path of Chicharito who sweeps it home from six yards out. Finally, the away side have their goal.
