Manchester United 4-0 Aston Villa | April 15, 2012 - Premier League

Manchester United stayed up and retook a five-point lead above Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.

Ashley Young, who got a penalty-kick last week against QPR, was again involved, said to have been tripped by Ciaran Clark. The body contact between the two was not too much making the win against Aston Villa mixed with some controversial penalty kick. But Wayne Rooney converted the spot-kick early in the game before Danny Welbeck made it 2-0 before half time. Aston Villa improved after the break but Rooney and Nani sealed their win.

There were six yellow cards given, three for each club but no injuries were reported so no staff wearing nursing uniforms had to enter the pitch to take injured players out.

The Reds will play Everton next and then Manchester City and victory in these two matches could secure their 20th title in the Premier League.


Wayne Rooney 7' (penalty)
Danny Welbeck 43'
Wayne Rooney 73'
Nani 90'
