Even Newcastle supporters can admire the goal that put Manchester United up early at Old Trafford.

The buildup was splendid, and ended when Juan Mata’s curling pass into the box was met by a sliding Radamel Falcao. The Colombia star’s low touch was crossed perfectly for an easy Wayne Rooney finish.

Rooney would add a second before halftime to make it 2-0.
