Three things we learnt from Man United’s victory

Robin van Persie still has something to offer

Following the summer arrivals of Radamel Falcao and Angel di Maria, coupled with the fact Wayne Rooney, Robin van Perise and Juan Mata were already at Old Trafford, Louis van Gaal had a tough juggling act to do. In recent weeks, it has been suggested that former Arsenal striker Robin van Persie should be the fall guy. However, after his goal today, no doubt a few will reassess their opinions.

Man United are back

A comfortable 3-0 victory at home to Hull City. No more than you’d expect from any United side under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Wayne Rooney is United’s main man

Pre-match, Angel di Maria likened playing alongside the England captain as similar to playing with Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi and, although that is hard for many of us to believe, Rooney is certainly proving to be as key to United as Messi is to the La Liga outfit.
