Wayne Rooney scored twice as Manchester United secured a comfortable victory against West Bromwich Albion which put them one point clear at the top of the Barclays Premier League.
Rooney reacted sharply to direct Javier Hernandez's driven cross past Ben Foster to open the scoring in the first half.
Jonas Olsson then picked up a second yellow card for the Baggies for a foul on Hernandez - who had seen an earlier shot rebound off the post.
Rooney then scored from the spot after Keith Andrews fouled Ashley Young to seal the win which - coupled with the result at Swansea - put United top of the table.

Moore rose to head home Wayne Routledge's cross with just seven minutes remaining.
Scott Sinclair had missed a penalty for Swansea in the first half.
City threatened at times and Micah Richards had a late header ruled out for offside, but their opponents were a match for them across the field.
