Wigan crumble as Reds run riot
England striker Wayne Rooney joined the 100 club and Michael Owen got off the mark as Manchester United beat Wigan 5-0 at the DW Stadium. Rooney made the breakthrough in the 56th minute and got his second nine minutes later in a fine second half show. In between, Dimitar Berbatov found the target in the 58th minute as United bounced back from their humbling by newly-promoted Burnley in midweek. Owen made his mark in the 85th minute after replacing Rooney 13 minutes earlier and Nani completed the scoring in stoppage time with a superb free-kick.
