Well, it’s good to play in league competition while Arsenal and Chelsea do their FA cup thing. Wayne Rooney cemented his place as leader in the player of the year race, scoring four goals in one match, putting himself on top of the goalscorers charts with 19 this season but more importantly put United on top of the Premiership with 50 points, while Arsenal (one game in hand) and Chelsea (two) drop to second and third, at least for the time being. There will be some noise following the game – Rooney’s second goal came while Hull’s Dawson stayed injured on the ground and Rio Ferdinand committed an obvious red card deserving foul on Craig Fagan which should have been a penalty for Hull, but Rooney’s performance from this match shines brighter than any other incident.
