Wayne Rooney struck either side of the interval as Manchester United maintained their Premier League title offensive by beating West Brom 2-0 at Old Trafford.

The striker touched home Javier Hernandez's right-wing cross to settle a few nerves before belting home from the spot after Ashley Young had been fouled by Keith Andrews.

It took Rooney on to 24 goals for the season, although Ashley Young and Javier Hernandez wasted late chances to increase the lead still further.
