A week or more without the Premier League seemed like an eternity, but the players were in fine form. A 3 - 1 victory that proved to be vital in the closing stages of the season. Fresh from the huge win at Anfield, thanks to a brace from Mata, hopes of a Champions League spot have been reassured. Another Spaniard that proved to be vital was Ander Herrera.

A not so much heard of player until last season, is slowly becoming a star at Old Trafford. Emulating Paul Scholes is what he wants to do and that exactly is what he's doing. Rooney with another magnificent goal with a classy first touch was what sealed the game.

Di Maria reaches 10 assists, the second highest in the league, which by his standards is nothing, but given that he's having a bad season is not bad at all.

Next up is City, but this time at home. Last time we met this season, we were close to winning if not for the red card. We were pressing a lot and made a lot of chances. But that was a long time ago and now LvG has found the team he was looking for. 7 games remain and anything could happen!

Rooney is undoubtedly an overall player who can play anywhere. But, playing him out if position too often is probably not the best move van Gaal made.

Rooney is maybe the best striker, I have explained that already a lot of times. It is not that anybody isn't a good player in my selection. I have to look at where each player can make the biggest contribution. It's the composition which is more important than the individual player.

van Gaal is right on one thing, Rooney is the best striker that we have. But shouldn't he play in a position where he contributes more? Wasn't he more successful up front? If we didn't have good midfielders, perhaps it would be the best choice. But we have the likes of Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, Fellaini, Januzaj who are all top quality players.
