Celtic Trounced As Manchester United Cruise On !!

manchester united united cristiano ronaldoDimitar Berbatov struck twice to put Manchester United firmly in charge of their 'Battle of Britain' Champions League clash with Celtic and guess what, yes you got it Rooney scored too, that's now 9 goals in his last seven games for club and country, just incredible !!

Berbatov netted after 28 minutes to put United 1-0 ahead at Old Trafford, but he appeared to be offside when he scored. A Nani corner was only partly cleared and John O'Shea put the ball back back in the danger area for Berbatov to divert it home. However, TV replays suggested he was actually offside when the ball was played through. His second goal early in the second half was also hotly disputed. Celtic keeper Artur Boruc parried a Cristiano Ronaldo free-kick into the path of Berbatov, who fired into an empty net. Celtic protested the Bulgarian had been in off-side when the free-kick was taken.

From the side that beat West Brom 4-0 on Saturday, out went the injured defender Patrice Evra and Rafael, Ryan Giggs and Park Ji-Sung dropped to the bench. In came O'Shea to left-back and Gary Neville to right-back with Nani and Anderson starting in midfield.

Celtic defender Gary Caldwell passed a late fitness test on an ankle injury but was deployed in a sitting midfield role for the first time this season at the expense of the injured Marc Crosas.
Midfielder Shunsuke Nakamura, who scored in both games against United two seasons ago, came in for Shaun Maloney who started as substitute.

Rooney's goal in the second half was typical United. Van Der Sar rolled the ball to Fletcher who ran to the halfway line before passing wide left to Nani who let it roll on to Tevez who squared for Rooney to bury it.

One thing to note was the bright, flashy start by Ronaldo. But as Berbatov got his two goals and Rooney scored again Ronnie seemed to get moody. As I said 12 months ago, and was slated for it, he doesn't like it when he isn't in the limelight !!!!!

Man Utd:
Van der Sar, Neville, Evans, Vidic, O'Shea, Ronaldo, Fletcher, Anderson, Nani, Berbatov, Rooney.

Celtic: Boruc, Wilson, Loovens, McManus, Naylor, Nakamura, Scott Brown, Caldwell, Robson, McGeady, McDonald .....Back To Home Page
