In the second half, West Brom started brightly, and Anichebe and Zoltan Gera both went close with shots to De Gea’s left. United doubled their lead on the 65th minute when Rooney headed in Rafael’s cross at the back post. As the game drew to a close, Danny Welbeck curled a shot past Foster seal the victory.
