Name Your Man Of The Match From United Win Over Wigan


Paul Scholes celebrates his goal with Chicharito, Danny Welbeck, Michael Carrick and Nemanja Vidic

Poll: Star man v Wigan

It took a superb collective effort for United to overcome Wigan Athletic at Old Trafford, and there are no shortage of contenders for ManUtd.com’s Man of the Match award.

Alexander Büttner enjoyed a debut to remember with an action-packed outing, launching into a string of tough challenges, teeing up Chicharito for United’s second goal and then bagging the third with a slaloming run and finish.

Michael Carrick and Ryan Giggs were also on-song. Carrick anchored midfield impressively and set the ball rolling with a breath-taking pass in the build-up to United’s opener, while Giggs rolled back the years once again with a fine exhibition on the left flank.

Another veteran in the limelight was Paul Scholes, who marked the 700th game of his career with a trademark display: robust in the challenge, unerring with the ball at his feet and deadly in front of goal.

Though his display went unrewarded by a goal, Danny Welbeck’s endeavour and threat set the tone for United’s display. The England striker impressed all afternoon – late booking aside – and was the Reds’ liveliest attacker throughout. Whether you rate Danny as United’s star man or not, you can cast your man of the match vote here.
