Premier League—Old Trafford, Manchester

Manchester United 2-0 Cardiff City

Scorers: RvP (7'), Young (58')


Manchester United won the first game of the Juan Manuel Mata era in style, beating Cardiff City to the tune of a 2-0 scoreline.

Robin van Persie opened the scoring with a close-range header after seven minutes, then Ashley Young sealed the points with a brilliant strike from distance in the second half.

It was enough to secure an all-important victory on a must-win evening for David Moyes, who will now press ahead with Wayne Rooney, RvP and Mata available to him.
