United stay top with narrow win over Sociedad

Manchester United maintained their position as leaders of Champions League Group A with a narrow win over Real Sociedad at Old Trafford yesterday evening.

Inigo Martinez turned the ball into his own net two minutes in to the game after Wayne Rooney saw his effort come back of the post, and that goal was enough to give David Moyes’ men all three points.

The club will now turn their attention to Saturday afternoon’s match against Stoke City, where they will hope to return to winning ways in the league after last weekend’s draw with Southampton.

Meanwhile, Rooney has stated that he is happy that former manager Sir Alex Ferguson has corrected his version of events surrounding the strikers supposed desire to leave the club in the summer.

The Scot had said that the England international had officially requested to be transferred at the end of last season, though Rooney denied that that was the case.

The former Everton man, who turns 28 today, went on to say that he is happy working under David Moyes and his staff, and those feelings have been expressed by his form on the pitch, with five goals in ten appearances across all competitions.
