Winning start for Giggs

Ryan Giggs made a winning start to his spell in

temporary charge of Manchester United, with

struggling Norwich City seen off 4-0 at Old


A brace apiece from Wayne Rooney and Juan

Mata earned the reigning Premier League

champions all three points and ensured that a

new era at the Theatre of Dreams got off to the

best possible start.

United were far from their best in the opening

exchanges, but at the end of a hectic week the

final result was all that mattered.

Rooney ensured that would be favourable as he

stroked home his first from the penalty spot

after Danny Welbeck had been bundled over in

the box by Steven Whittaker.

The opener arrived four minutes before half-

time, and three minutes after the interval

Rooney had doubled United's lead as he slipped

on the edge of the area but saw a skidding drive

nestle in the bottom corner.

Damage limitation quickly became the name of

the game for Norwich, but they were breached

on two further occasions in the space of 10

minutes just past the hour mark.

Mata, within three minutes of being introduced,

turned home a Phil Jones cross from close range

to end the game as a contest, and it was to be

the Spaniard who added a fourth as he glanced

in a volleyed centre from Antonio Valencia.
