Two goals in the last 10 minutes saw Manchester United beat Blackburn to move five points clear at the top of the Barclays Premier League.
Blackburn looked to have frustrated the visitors, who enjoyed plenty of possession but struggled to carve out too many clear-cut chances until Antonio Valencia broke the deadlock with an angled drive in the 81st minute.
United substitute Ashley Young then made sure of the victory that sees them extend their lead over rivals Manchester City when he turned smartly in the box and fired home.
Javier Hernandez had twice gone close in the first half, while Blackburn pair Junior Hoilett and Marcus Olsson were both denied by smart saves from United keeper David de Gea.
