Five star United thrash Magpies

Published Add your comment

Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney fired Manchester United to within three points of Barclays Premier League leaders Arsenal as Newcastle were thrashed 5-1 at St James´ Park.

The Portugal international struck on the stroke of half-time and then 11 minutes after the break to set up another impressive victory.

However, it was Rooney who opened the scoring on 25 minutes and although Abdoulaye Faye pulled a goal back, Rooney and substitute Louis Saha stretched the lead with goals in the final 10 minutes.
