Manchester United marched on to overwhelm Blackburn Rovers. Although for the first thirty minutes Blackburn gave as much as they were given and even went ahead on the 29th minute, after the interval everything changed. No one knows what what Sir Alex Ferguson said to them in the dressing room,but United came out and changed gear, leaving Blackburn way behind. Starting with Paul Scholes dancing passed three defenders to score the equaliser, which had 70,000 supporters leaping to their feet. From that moment on there was only one team who were going to win and the crowd were all the way behind their team. United extended their score on 72 minutes with a rebound of the bar from a Giggs shot which Carrick made no mistake about. Then ten minutes later Ji-Sung Part tapped in to an open goal to make it three, one. Man of the match again must go to Ronaldo who works the wing as if a bird in flight. Make two goals and making a number of other chances.The forth goal came from Ronaldo's replacement, and came as no surprise. as the unmaked Solskjaer slotted home the pass from Park the Rooney couldn't meet. Blackburn had had a handball appeal turned down, but the result was a positive one for Sir Alex Ferguson with the Champions League match coming up on wednesday. Nemanja Vidic crashed down, and was stretchered off with an shoulder injury after less than half an hour and looks like being out for four weeks.
Sir Alex Ferguson hailed that this was United's best performance of the season.
