Wayne Rooney Fires Manchester United Top

Wayne Rooney was inspirational form at Old Trafford today as he scored all 4 goals in their 4-0 thrashing of Hull City to fire Manchester United to the top of the Premier League.

Boaz Myhill was inspired last weekend as he made save after save to help Hull City come away from a White Hart Lane with a 0-0 draw. However it took Wayne Rooney and Manchester United 8 minutes to break the deadline today. To think Hull were to fold at this point, they took the same scoreline into half time. In fact, it wasn't until the 82nd minute before United doubled their lead. And before you know it Rooney was completing hattrick and then adding a 4th.

Rio Ferdinand played his first game in 3 months due to injury and played the full 90 minutes alongside Jonny Evans. His fitness and a clean sheet for Manchester United will be a boost ahead of their Carling Cup final second leg with Manchester City on Wednesday, and then a big game at Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday.

Arsenal's time at the top of the Premier League was short-lived, but travel to Aston Villa midweek looking to restore their lead. Chelsea are down to third, 2 points behind Manchester United, but with 2 games in hand. The first of those is at home to Birmingham City on Wednesday.

With Manchester City and Arsenal to come over the course of the week, it's really a crucial stage of Manchester United's season despite only being at the end of January. While the Carling Cup has never been one of Sir Alex Ferguson's priorities, they don't want to go out to their closest neighbours, having already gone out of the FA Cup to Leeds. Defeat to Arsenal in the league could see them fall far behind both Chelsea and Arsenal and potentially kill off their Premier League title chase.

Hopefully for England fans, Wayne Rooney can maintain his form over the summer after he took his goal tally up to 19 in the Premier League this afternoon.
