Manchester United shift up through the gears and barricaded themselves at the top-flight summit. Crucial to achieving that objective before entering 2013 will be Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie continuing to fire on all cylinders. Rooney has taken his time to find form, but he has looked back to his best in the last few weeks playing just off the shoulder of Van Persie and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

Quote of the Week

“No, not at all. Obviously I was disappointed at the weekend, not only to miss but to miss the target. I said after the game it wasn’t good enough and (against Braga) I was a bit fortunate; I slipped but thankfully it’s gone in so I’m happy with that. At the time it happened so quick, but obviously I’ve seen it going towards the goal and the keeper going the other way. I was happy with it going in but obviously I’ve been quite lucky with that.” Wayne Rooney confesses his relief at scoring from the spot against Braga after missing from 12-yards against Arsenal
