Sir Alex Ferguson’s United side eased past Newcastle United at Old Trafford thanks in no small part to a man of the match performance from veteran Paul Scholes. The home side were always in control and could have had a far wider margin of victory had Wayne Rooney put away some of the chances he was presented with but the England man appeared to still not be 100% fit before he was replaced by Javier Hernandez on the hour.
